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.

Comfort, Service, Location
We had only a day in Christchurch but after we checked in, we didn't feel like leaving the room. It was great after 3 weeks in a campervan.
