Nice and comfortable spot centrally located in Christchurch

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 10 Sept 2019via mobile
We stayed here one night on our way South. The service was faultless and the rooms were comfortable and functional. Found it a nice touch to have tea, hot chocolate and coffee in the room with some Whittaker’s chocolate. Would stay here again if looking for somewhere central in Christchurch. Was walking distance to lots of sites, shopping and dining.

On our driving tour of New Zealand we’ve stayed here on two occasions. In a fantastic location right next to the cathedral. Very comfortable beautifully decorated rooms. Staff were welcoming and friendly. Concierge especially was very helpful. Breakfast was a standard buffet. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

We loved staying here.... the bed and linen were top shelf. There is a huge TV for the blokes, It is in an extremely central location we loved the chocolate bar and shortbread and these were complimentary.. We had 2 nights here, and would stay here in a heatbeat when we are next in Christchurch.

I stay here whenever I am in Christchurch on business and always find the service very good and the rooms almost always first class. The only issue i have had was one room that was next door to the lift wells and the noise through the night was not the best, but otherwise, never any issues. Good restaurant and nice relaxing bar downstairs.

This hotel has been newly renovated (re-opened last year). It has been decorated very tastefully and therefore the rooms and bathrooms have that 'new' feel. The bed was very comfy and the in-room facilities were very good (mini bar, tea/coffee facilities etc). The location is excellent, right next to the cathedral. The bar is well stocked with friendly staff and the front desk staff were very friendly, welcoming and helpful. I would definitely recommend this hotel in Christchurch. Breakfast is not included in the room rate but is approx. $25 if booked when checking in.

Room tip: High room ideally
