Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We stayed for a night arriving taking 11-hr flight and before heading to Tekapo and Mt Cook. It's best choice. This hotel is in city centre, 15-20 min drive from airport. The city is walkable. Two blocks away is the bus terminal and boarding place for the intercity coach that we took to Tekapo. Next to the hotel is a souvenir shop. There are some eateries in the neighbourhood. But frankly I didn't find any decent restaurants in Christchurch overall and I think people here do not pursue or concern much about high quality of food or fine dining. The rooms in this hotel are reasonably sized, clean with everything we need. Very cozy. Price is very good (Christchurch hotel's price much better than Queenstown). Highly recommended 👍🏿!

Nice, centrally located hotel in Christchurch. A two minute walk to the Tram. You can get to this hotel from the Airport from the #8 bus. Hotel has wi-fi. Breakfast was good, as was the buffet dinner. The rooms vary greatly in size.

Everything about my stay was perfectly fine but it is good to see renovation starting. The hotel rooms feel very tired, especially the bathrooms. The breakfast buffet area has a weird layout and is too small, you need to do a weird dance around other guests when serving the hot food.

I was visiting New Zealand and Christchurch was one of the stops on my holiday and I chose to specifically pick this hotel mainly due to it's very central location in the city. I was very happy with how I was checked in promptly and the room was very comfortable and spacious. Also the Riverside market and many shops and eating places were in the vicinity too and in general the area seemed quite safe Although it doesnt affect my review what I found a bit disappointing was seeing their restaurant under construction which meant breakfast wasn't included in any way but that did not affect my stay at all as all the people working in the hotel did not disturb any of the customers from what I saw and would happily stay here again

Great location for everything local. The Riverside Markets are a must to visit and only a 5-minute walk away. Our room was very clean, and the staff were amazing. The restaurant and bar were closed for renovations which are due to be completed at the end of September 2023, however the staff were able to prove great suggestions for other options.

The Ibis Christchurch has a cute boutique feel to it. Security is great as the front door locks at 10 pm and you use your room key to get in. My room had a fridge, kettle, walled toiletries, and a/c (hurray!). For some reason I got an accessible room on different floors on both hotel stays. The bathroom is huge, but I can’t see a wheelchair in the bedroom section as it was a bit tight near the bed. The bed was comfortable & the room was clean. Breakfast was the usual fare of hash brown, mushrooms, tomatoes, scrambled eggs, sausage, ham, baked goods, cereal, fruits & juices. I love the coffee machine. Our tour had dinner at the hotel that consisted of fruit salad, minestrone soup, chicken in mushroom sauce, baked ziti, and veggies which were decent. I am not sure if the restaurant is usually open for dinner and what their menu consist of. The staff during breakfast was friendly and attentive. Location of the hotel is perfect as it is near everything, especially Riverside Market. There is a mini mart & souvenir shop next door, as well as a little metro supermarket 5 minutes away on Lichfield Street.
