Miscommunication or Misinformation?
Staff that we dealt with lacking communication skills. We had a specific request for the shuttle service to the trade fair and back. This was emailed as a requirement for our stay. The hotel did not get back to me to inform me that the shuttle does not run for this event. On arrival we were told that this service was not available to us. The staff member on duty was suppose to enquire and get back to us, but did not even bother to get back to us at all. There were other great hotels in same price range that did offer this service and would have stayed there instead if we were told when making the reservation!

old fashioned charm
after reading some not so flattering reviews I was hesitant to stay here but just about everything else was booked out or not suitable. I found this hotel to be a classic old style hotel with large rooms quality bathroom supplies and large beds, this is a large hotel with a restaurant and bar and a pool. set among lovely gardens and across from Hagley Park and located very close to the centre of Christchurch.

Excellent first stay in New Zealand
Great start to our holiday, excellent service in a friendly hotel. Great for access to Hagley Park and a lovely 10' walk through the park to city centre.

Bar had a lovely atmosphere
Very nice stay, we were only there one night, but have stayed there many times before, always consistent and warm rooms in the winter. Looking a little dated these days, probably due for a reno, but overall still comfortable.
