Stayed here for 6 nights during Easter and, must admit that this hotel is probably the best we stayed in NZ (and this comes from someone that travels a lot). The room was clean, cozy, beautifully decorated and, although small, the storage and use of space was amazing. The bathroom was big, with lots of storage and had a luxury feel. The bed was very comfy and the selection of pillows was good. Continental breakfast was included in the room rate and it was delicious. Maybe small to some people's standards, but just perfect for us. They even gave us hot cross buns on Good Friday 😊 The staff were friendly, polite and they made you feel welcomed from the moment you stepped in. Thank you for a great stay! On our next trip to Christchurch, we will definitely stay here again.

Good stay but the only problem is the parking which the hotel did not offer. This let down the rating overall.

Very friendly staff, little extras that made it special, fruit cocktail drink on arrival while bags were taken to our room, breakfast in price that we weren't expecting, hand written card in room welcoming us. We will be back 😊

Nice hotel, conveniently located in central Christchurch. However, the lack of onsite parking was a pain (the Wilson Parking lots nearby weren't very convenient, as they wouldn't let you pay for more than 12-hours at a time). Also, the hot water in my shower took several minutes to get warm.
