I feel badly nit-picking at this hotel because Christchurch is still such a tragedy after the earthquake and I understand that accommodation is tight. This is one of the few hotels left standing in the downtown core - so the location is good. But our first room was so small the two of us could not walk around in it without one sitting on the bed. There was no place to put 2 duffle bags. We contacted the desk and they did change our room without any rate increase. I was somewhat surprised when the duty manager said that these smaller rooms were intended for the Asian clientele. Our second room was better (somewhat) with regard to size but still small and awkward - there were walls where there should have been an open space. It was in fact so small that I put my toiletries on the window sill. We found the dining room/café somewhat lacking I seem to recall plastic tables and chairs, the breakfast buffet (which I really try to avoid) had more canned fruit and fresh. Also I found it (café) to be very very crowded. On our first night arrival - we were somewhat late (7.p.m. ish) we found that if we were to have any sort of a decent meal without people falling over you - we were best advised to eat in the bar area. I do not particularly mind doing that but the chairs in the bar were hardly suited to eating dinner.
