This modern hotel is very centrally located right next to the earthquake-damaged cathedral. Easy access and walking distance to most shops and international restaurants. Clean and spacious lobby manned with friendly and helpful staffs. Rooms are comfortable and warm with all modern amenities freely available.

Wouldn’t stay at this hotel again, overpriced, wasn’t enjoyable. The Dinner was ok. The concierge (?Ralph) was very helpful but front desk staff were almost rude. I will go back to Christchurch but stay elsewhere.

Yes parking is an added fee, though they usually put a bottle of water in your car which is a nice touch.
