Excellent Location
Perfectly located
Hotel was very nice albeit evidence of earthquake damage. Friendly reception staff. However, do find it annoying that they feel the need to charge for the Car Park and also for Internet usage !!

Good location
Location, Spacious Room
No hotel parking but valet available at NZD 15 per night
The location of the hotel is superb and is very near to the major attractions. The room is very spacious and big. There is complimentary 20 min internet only at the lobby but do not count on this - it gets disconnected easily. There is limited parking for loading in front of hotel, and overnight parking costs NZD 15 per night. No breakfast for certain promotions.

Great Location
Down Town shopping areas & night spot, valet parking
Old Gym facilities
Access to all major tourist spots within walking distance, no need to travel by car , shopping ie City Mall & etc including eating places are just at door step, good service for valet parking, very efficient. Affordable prices , big room & big bed, very clean, allows older child to share room without extra charges ( below 15 ), very quiet room due to double glazing. Very friendly staff at counter.

Value for money, location
very dated
We were very happy with our stay at Holiday Inn, CHCH. The room had everything that we expected and needed for our 2 night stay but lacked any character. The fittings etc are all very dated and in need of an upgrade but for the rate we got on Agoda.....we were very happy. We would stay there again but don't expect anything flash.

Great location, Big room, Nice bed
Close to Cathedral Square. Spacious room. Friendly staffs
A bit difficult to find using GPS. Room kinda dated, especially bathroom and carpet.
Close to everything, but we arrived at after 6.30 p.m. and everything is closed. But can still find some great restaurants and souvenirs open till late. Valet parking charged at NZD 10.. much cheaper than the Grand Chancellor Hotel located opposite of Holiday Inn that charge at NZD 15.

Holiday Inn City Centre Christchurch
Great location, very reasonably priced.
TV reception not ideal
This hotel was really well situated. Very close to all shops, places of interest etc. The room was nice - not too big, not too small. The staff were very friendly on arrival and made me feel very welcome. I will be definitely recommending the Holiday Inn as a place to stay to all my friends and family when visiting New Zealand.
