    Pleasantly surprised I stayed here with my friend for the night. It was easy to find, plenty of parking and check in was a breeze. The room was lovely and better than what we had expected. Plenty of towels and creature comforts. Milk in the fridge to make up remover; we really loved these extras! Thanks for a lovely stay.

    We stayed overnight here for our last night of 2weeks touring. Hotel is close to airport and where we had to return our car. Close to Westfields shopping centre. The room was great spa was lovely and relaxing. Owner recommended Noodle Night Market near Botanical Gardens was very enjoyable. Location is a little too far to walk to city centre but found plenty parking and easy drive.

    Nice property with a great location”

    The 2-bedroomed unit we booked was a corner unit that had its own separate entrance on Dallas Street and was handy to the shops along Riccarton Road and convenient to Westfield Riccarton. Unit was spacious and had a fully equipped kitchen with a proper sized fridge. The bedrooms were decently sized - one had a queen bed and the other 2 single beds. These were comfortable. The toilet is separate from the bathroom, which was handy as that allowed simultaneous use. The black couch provided d a few rips and could do with a patch up or at least have a cover thrown over it. Wifi was adequate for our needs. All in, a very enjoyable stay in a property with good location that offers pretty good value for money.

    Very modern, warm & spacious rooms in good area”

    Upgraded me to a bigger room, modern & warm with plenty of room.

    I really enjoyed my stay right from the beginning where I was greeted by a lovely lady who was smiling from the moment I arrived, apologised for keeping me waiting as she showed another guest to their rooms & advise me of eating places I could walk to. They upgraded me to a one bedroom unit with a spa due to an error with another customers booking. The room was very clean, modern, spacious with everything you could need from your stay away from home. The apartements were in a very good area close to a major shopping mall, restaurants & takeaways that you could walk to if you didn't have a car. My only concern was that the Apartments were on a major road & I was woken in the morning from the noise of the traffic even though my room was facing north from the road & Iwas in a room near the back of the building. I wandered if they had double glazing as I couldn't even get back to sleep from the noise & this was at 6 am in the morning. Other then that I couldn't fault a thing with the place, I would stay again & recommend it to others in the future. Price wise I think it was a fair price if not a touch expensive but as there isn't many places in Christchurch now they can get away with charging the nightly rate, I just thought it was a bit expensive for a studio that was only 1 person but was happy to pay it for the upgrade I received!
