The room was a good size, clean and tidy. Large range of sky channels. Good kitchenette facilities allowed you to make simple dishes. We slept well as it was quiet. Good value for two nights. Only downside is that there is not a lot of shops/restaurants in the vicinity but we didn't mind a walk.

Thoroughly enjoyed our two nights in a king suite accommodation. Having the kitchenette made breakfasts easy before a day of walking into the city and seeing the sights. Management kindly allowed us to leave our car parked there after checkout since our flight was later in the day. Highly recommend!

Service: Awesome. We arrived a little early but room was ready so were able to check in. Room: Very clean and tidy with two nice, comfortable leather chairs. Kitchenette was handy. Lots of SKY TV channels. My eyesight isn't great so it would have been nice if the TV was touch bigger as it was positioned some way from the bed, but we weren't there to sit in the room and watch TV. Bed/Sleep: Best night sleep I've had while staying in Christchurch. Huge, comfortable bed and nice and quiet. Other: Close to town, good value and, the most important thing, a great night's sleep. Would I stay again? Yes!
