We were in Christchurch for a stopover and had to leave early the next morning. Everything about this hotel was awesome except for one incident which I'll share last. But from the moment we entered the lobby, we were attended to with courtesy and care. Our 2-bedroom accommodation was very clean and nice. Loved the a/c and heating. There was also grocery shopping at a short distance and a few shops and cafes. If we needed anything, they were more than willing to try and cater to our needs. Loved our stay. Would definitely go back and stay here in Christchurch, especially for the price! Awesome!
The only bad thing was that the shuttle to pick us up from airport wasn't coming for 1.5 hours after we arrived. Even though I had told them we would arrive at 4pm, for some reason they booked it for 5.30. Regardless, they were nice enough to transport us back to the airport very early the next morning before service hours. I would not let this incident detract me from staying here. Nor should you.
