We stayed 2 nights 10 days apart.All rooms were of good size with variable views,car park or trees.Bathrooms were good with over bath showers.The swimming pool area outside is subject to the start of some building work but no sign of contractors on site.
The bar and restaurant are fine and breakfast(choice of type and cost) is good.Evening meals are of a good standard.Not fine dining but better than most "airport" hotels.The hotel is about a mile out of the airport on one of the main roads into Christchurch.
The town has a pleasant central area and a series of restaurants adjoining the river.These seem to get busy quite earlyTraffic is not heavy by major UK town standards.
As an airport stopover this hotel was good.The staff are helpful and when their new public access computer system failed to work the printer to do an online check in they tried everything to help including letting us use the hotel system.There is a usage cost.
As far as we were concerned this provided the ideal starting and finishing stop on a tour of South Island
