Best Stay in Christchurch
It was an amazing stay at Distinction Hotel for me and my mum on 6-10th July. We were given a free room upgrade as our original booking was a king size bedroom and the check in staff was so sweet to know it’s better for an adult daughter to not share the same bed with their parent. 😂 Service was top notch, we were freezing in the room and asked if we could have a heater and they immediately arranged for it. Staff are all really a lovely bunch of people. We had a great dinner at the hotel’s restaurant as well, fantastic food and very friendly staff who constantly checks on our needs. Best stay in Christchurch I believe!
