Hotel was extraordinary, it's in an old Goverment building with lots of grandeur, fantastic design, and so many details every walk down the hall reveals more. The hotel lacks a restaurant and the area of Christchurch that it is in hasn't recovered. Abandoned buildings, empty muddy lots surround you, be prepared to walk several blocks through construction sites in order to find places to eat. Sidewalks are muddy and full of trip/fall hazards, so I cannot recommended the hotel at this time for the elderly. No ramps or elevators for wheelchairs either. Hotel is fantastic but I'd likely stay outside of the downtown area if I visit Christchurch again in the next few years.

The rooms were large but a bit stark, no pictures or lamps which would have made a huge difference. The shower room was tiny and if you you happened to be on the loo and someone opened the door you would be in danger of loosing knee caps!
However, the bed was comfy and the breakfast was great!
