Definitely NOT a 5 star hotel
This is not a 5 star hotel. I have stayed in hotels around the world and this would rate best a 3 star. I have stayed at the Fable in Dunedin which is amazing and definitely 5 star. What was wrong with this hotel - carpets old and stained, carpet cut short around robes all frayed and plucked, pillows smelled of use and old, lamp to bedside not working, light in bathroom flashed and worked intermittently, air con very old and dusty had a burning smell when on hot, TV lob sided on wall, door handle to bathroom nit straight and screws missing, bath hooks on door in ensuite coming away from door and loose, no bottle opener even though beer in fridge wasn’t twist tops, wardrobe doors wouldn’t stay closed when in correct position, cracks and damage to walls. This was a special weekend away for our wedding anniversary and was not as special as it should have been due to conditions with room. We always stay at 5 star hotels and this was such a disappointment.

10/10 Exceptional

Stayed here for 6 nights during Easter and, must admit that this hotel is probably the best we stayed in NZ (and this comes from someone that travels a lot). The room was clean, cozy, beautifully decorated and, although small, the storage and use of space was amazing. The bathroom was big, with lots of storage and had a luxury feel. The bed was very comfy and the selection of pillows was good. Continental breakfast was included in the room rate and it was delicious. Maybe small to some people's standards, but just perfect for us. They even gave us hot cross buns on Good Friday 😊 The staff were friendly, polite and they made you feel welcomed from the moment you stepped in. Thank you for a great stay! On our next trip to Christchurch, we will definitely stay here again.
