Roger gave us a warm welcome and it is amazing what a big impression that makes. Spacious rooms, clean, lots of facilities. Very convenient for a walk through the lovely Botanic Gardens into town. Handy for the fast developing eateries and bars along Riccarton Road. Yeah, we would stay again if we are in Christchurch.

The sofa bed was a bit creaky and stained though. The other beds were nice and comfortable and heating was good. 15 mins walk to Pak n Save supermarket, but lots of other food and...
