Great location. Rooms are a little outdated, some repairs required but very clean. The room was not suited to a family of 5. It slept 5 but two of these beds were pullout beds in the lounge, very hard and uncomfortable. Also in the lounge there was only 1 double sofa and a chair. Having two double couches would have ensured everyone was seated comfortably. Coffee table was very large and tabletop a big heavy piece of glass which wasn’t young children friendly. Would return but only if there were 2-3 of us. Price was reasonable

A great place to stay in central Christchurch. We had a very nice room, which was warm and spotlessly clean. We will def stay again on our next trip. It turned out to be my wife's aunts fave place to stay too - but we didn't know that until afterwards.

Good location. Not good value for money compared to other places we had stayed at for the same money. The bed was uncomfortable and the TV in the bedroom didn't work. When I informed them about this they said that it was an issue with Sky and they wouldn't be fixing it.

I will be staying again next week.
We love staying at Strathern Lodge. It is very central to all needs. Lovely managers. Bed in room 8 was not comfortable, compared to the other room we stayed in up the stairs far left. However I have a bad spine so could be just me.
