“A very handy location Boutique Hotel”
Reviewed 5 January 2017

We were on a Grand Pacific Small groups tour of New Zealand. On arrival in Christchurch the first day/night 9 November 2016, we were transferred to this Hotel in lieu of our previously booked The George Hotel, as that hotel was booked out by a Scandinavian Royal family and its entourage and some USA government dignitary. ( we did get to stay there however on our second visit to Christchurch later on the tour and I have written a review on that one. This quaint boutique hotel was very friendly, , only 3 levels, and had massive rooms, the size of a suite in other 5 star hotels. Most comfortable bed and facilities, one could easily stay there for weeks. Dinner was satisfactory, a bit slow on the service for our group of 20 persons. Breakfast however was basic which is Ok BUT the service was so slow and the staff seemed bewildered by having a group needing breakfast more or less at the same time. Orders were mucked up, others never arrived or arrived far too late. , but the staff nevertheless was polite and friendly.

Room Tip: Best rooms for views are to the the park, cant say whether its north or south, east or west.

Our accommodations were some of the nicest we had over our 2 weeks in NZ for our family vacation. The room is very large and the bed was amazing. The view out the front of the hotel is nothing special (empty lot) but not much you can do about that. We were welcomed with drink voucher each which was a nice surprise. I would stay here again

Beautifully decorated, friendly staff, good location. Very nice toiletries and coffee and tea. The restaurant should improve on the quality of the food offered for breakfast. I wish there had been a little more guidance on available activities and restaurants during the Christmas holiday.

Stayed at Montreal on Christmas as layover spot on our way to Franz Josef. Room was clean and staff friendly. Due to timing (Christmas) Christchurch was a ghost town and this probably prejudiced my overall impression. I would rate food as average. Only one complaint - I asked for an oversized taxi to transport us to airport but was provided with two separate taxis

Dear Joe,

Thank you for taking the time to review your stay.I am pleased to read you enjoyed your stay and for your comments on the clean room and friendly staff. At Christmas time the CBD is very quiet and unfortunately there were no "oversized taxis" available for us to order for you. Its best to pre book transportation for Christmas time. We hope to welcome you back soon.

Best Regards
Andrew Duncan
