I complained about my stay here in one of the apartments in January. I was very kindly offered a form of recompense by management at the time (as outlined in their reply to my review at that time). I stayed in another apartment last week (one night) - no. 35. it was a fabulous surprise. A spacious very nicely decorated, spotlessly clean duplex apartment with two bedrooms. The views from both bedrooms and the living area all had a very good side views of christchurch cathedral. The apartment was very quiet and apart from the cathedral bells ( a soothing sound to my ears) i could not hear any external noise or traffic. The hotel bar is being refurbished currently which was a bit disappointing as it was closed when we were there in January, but we had breakfast in a small side room the following morning. Breakfast was very good - but as others have pointed out, there was a bit of a wait when it came to replenishing the food - probably due to logistical difficulties. However, the waiting staff were very charming and apologetic for the delay and reception staff were very pleasant and efficient at all times. Once the bar is up and running I would have no hesitation in staying here again. The location is fantastic and temple bar on a balmy august evening is as ambient and fun filled as any mediterrannean hot spot (despite the sad dancing and idiotic antics of a few hapless harmless local drunkards).
