It's two years since my last stay at this hotel and I am happy to say it is still as good as it was in 2012. The staff were all very helpful and friendly. The bar and restaurant are great - big enough for their patrons but small enough to feel very friendly and warm. My room which was on the 2nd floor was clean and comfortable - only noise was from the other patrons who arrived late or left early but that is to be expected when you are staying at a hotel which caters so well for airport arrivals and departures. I arrived after midnight and phoned the hotel from the free phone at the airport and within a few minutes the shuttle was there ready to pick me up. The next morning they were happy to return me to the airport to pick up my rental car and then again when I left at 5am in the morning the shuttle took me back to the airport. The drivers were friendly and helpful - don't know that I would have been so friendly at that time of the day on a cold wet Christchurch morning but nothing ever seems to be a bother to the staff at this hotel. I congratulate the management on the ethos of great customer service they so obviously share with their staff. I spoke with a number of staff in different jobs from the shuttle drivers, receptionists, room attendants and restaurant staff and they were all polite and friendly. The staff at this hotel really make the difference. I would definitely recommend this hotel.
