Clean and simple rooms, all you need for a quick stopover. Lovely hosts that really went out of their way for us. We arrived quite late and they had the room ready with the heating and lights on for us. Such great communication too. Thanks to the team at Birches.

Great check in experience. Spacious room with everything we needed. Handy laundry, and ample parking. Was a good location for where we needed to be. Easy access to mall. Room was really quiet, unusual for a busy Hotel.

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here. Myself and my children were always greeted with smiles and made to feel welcome. Warm, dry, clean, and a handy location. Parking was easy. The staff were great. There were in-house dining options, which we didn't take advantage of this time, but we will next. Thank you!

I was caught out in Christchurch due to flight cancellations so needed to stay somewhere at short notice. The Quality Elms is as the name suggests.... A well run quality hotel. With high cleanliness standards and brilliant staff and service.

An absolute relief to arrive here after a stressful day of flight cancellations. Absolutely lovely staff on the front desk, lovely interior design in the foyer and bar, excellent value room for 4 people, room service cheered up the kids, excellent TV, comfortable brand new beds in our room. It all turned out wonderfully because of this hotel.

Overall: 4/5- Good Location We used Quality Hotel Elms as our base of operations for our New Zealand trip. We were in and out of there so often it started to feel like home. The main reason we chose Quality Hotel Elms was for its location. Only a 15-minute drive from the airport but still in the middle of the commercial hub the location of this hotel offers both the airport as well as restaurants, cafes, and shopping all in close proximity. Right across the road, you get a chain of fast food and fine dining restaurants. A 10-minute walk down the road you get to Northlands Shopping centre with all the shops you will need and an excellent food court with a few halal options. While there is no scenery around the hotel for convenience and proximity to all the Christchurch landmarks this hotel gets 4.5 out of 5. 4.5/5 Comfort The hotel isn’t old but with its popcorn celling (in some rooms) it’s not necessarily new either. But with some refurbishment and rooms and corridors that are tastefully decorated you wouldn’t be blamed for thinking that it was modern. The rooms are fairly small and with low ceilings, they were some of the more compact rooms we stayed in on our trip. However, we never felt congested and the beds were comfortable enough for a good night's sleep. The rooms and bathrooms were all very clean and well supplied with little shampoo, conditioner and body wash bottles. Quality Hotel Elms also provides free airport shuttles which contribute to this hotel ensuring their guest are well looked after. For comfort Quality, Hotel Elms gets a 4 out of 5. 4/5 Customer Service. We chose Quality Hotel Elms because we looked forward to coming back each time for the customer service. While all the staff from the reception to the restaurant staff were polite, friendly, and professional Tony was the very definition of excellent Customer Service. From the time we checked in Tony greeted us as friends asking us how our trip so was and where we were heading. For the first and only time in any of the hotels in New Zealand, Tony offered to help with the bags and brought them up to our rooms himself. While we were in Cook Islands Tony called to inform us that the free airport shuttle the hotel provides wasn’t available for the day but that if we would like to get a taxi from the airport the hotel would cover the cost, and it did. In addition, when we needed to find a taxi to take us and our extensive luggage to the airport Tony tirelessly called several taxi companies to find a taxi that accommodates us and our luggage. If you ever check into Quality Hotel Elms I truly hope you get to meet Tony and the rest of the staff to experience the standard of excellent customer service. Quality Hotel Elms gets 5 out of 5 for customer service. 5/5 Food When we checked in, we enquired whether any of the meat at Quality Hotel Elms was halal and we were told that all the meat was. Unfortunately, as we only had the buffet breakfast, we didn’t get to experience this as every morning the only meat available was pork sausages and bacon. With the exception of a few dishes each morning the menu remained the same consisting of scrambled eggs, hashbrowns, grilled tomatoes, baked beans, toast, sauteed mushrooms, assorted jams, pastries, and cereals, a few fruits and pork sausages, and bacon (which we couldn’t have). However, the scrambled eggs were nicely flavored as were the grilled tomatoes and sauteed mushrooms. There were also a few new dishes each morning like a tapioca pudding in a jar and soft pancakes which were a nice treat. However, I would have liked to have seen more variety in the buffet and more options for people with dietary requirements. Based on the buffet breakfast Quality Hotel Elms gets a 3 out of 5 for food. 3/5
