Short Stay
Vita Nova is a fine, cosy place to stay when you need somewhere to leave your bags when going on day trips. It is almost equidistant from the Air Force Museum (nice place to catch up on New Zealand air history for a few hours) and the train station (for a day trip on the Tranzalpine train). If you want to get around the city of Christchurch be sure to rent a car because this is a motel not near the 'hotspots' of the city. There can be street noise if you are a light sleeper especially as it is sandwiched between other motels. I have to congratulate the staff as they are very polite and quite pleasant in conversation.

Horrible smokey room
Location, easy to book, set up cot
We arrived in the early hours of the morning after a long day of travelling with a screaming child to be absolutely be KO'd by the smell of cigarette smoke in a non smoking much so it was all through the bedding and pillows. Absolutely disgusting. They obviously knew as they had the heater on and the window open...if it wasn't 2am in the morning we would have left. Exposing our 22 month old sun to this was unacceptable. Thankfully we had an early flight and left, wanting a refund - they reluctantly gave us a $50 refund as smoking in the rooms is not their fault or responsibility...guess again champ.

Good stay at hotel
clean room, good location and easy access to restaurant
The room was a little small for a 4 person stay. However, it was well equipped and clean.
