    The hotel was clean, modern, comfortable. It was a short walk away from the CBD but close to restaurants. Bloody Mary's Restaurant was excellent for dinner and breakfast. A lovely place to stay.

    Lovely hotel in a great location

    A really lovely hotel in a nice quiet location but still handy to the City. We were upgraded to a new room which was really lovely, clean, comfortable and luxurious. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Food in the restaurant was lovely. We look forward to staying again when next in Christchurch.
