Our two-bedroom unit was bright and clean. The property is very well kept and conveniently located within walking distance of downtown. I didn't find the staff overly friendly or welcoming but it didn't impact our stay. The furniture was dated for the price but overall it worked very well for our needs and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone travelling in the area.

Perfect location, clean, spacious”

We stayed here for a couple of nights to explore Christchurch after our road trip journey throughout the South Island. The room was spacious, complete with room heaters in room and bathroom, which is a plus as the time when we visited was a bit chilly. We especially love the kitchenette. The service was good, check-in was swift, they arranged an airport taxi for us with no problem. It is a bit of a distance to city centre compared to other hotels, but the weather was nice and a city isn't big so it was actually an enjoyable walk to/from city centre. Overall satisfied.
