Ideal location”

I had to stay somewhere urgently as my husband was in hospital and a lot of the city was booked out. The room was relatively small but well organised so it felt quite spacious. Nespresso machine in room. Extremely clean, very comfy bed and pillows. Very close to city centre, cafes/restaurants and attractions, and about 1.2 kms flat walk to hospital . The only thing is the continental breakfast. I paid extra for the breakfast and while the food was adequate, it probably would’ve been same price to have the ala carte brekkie. On short notice they let me stay one more night in the same room and charged me less than the online price. I would stay there again. Thank you to the staff.

The staff are very helpful”

Thank you for all the staff to helped my parents check in much much more earlier, so my parents doesn’t need to sleep in the airport due to their flight been diverted to Christchurch instead of arriving in Auckland. And very handy location, a lot restaurants for them to choose around the hotel. Very comfortable stay as well. Highly recommended this hotel to everyone.

Accessible location within the city centre”

Fable Christchurch is conveniently situated in the city centre and just next to the tram station where you can buy the tickets for the tram ride and also board the tram. Decent room size and comfortable bed. In fact, one of the most comfortable night I had in NZ. Fuss free and easy check in and out process. The staff were also helpful to help out with the parking ticket.
