After an earthquake and a few post-tremors we were concerned about accomodation in Christchurch. The receptionist's advice having been asked what to do should another tremor occur was"it's hard to say, we never know whether it's best to go outside or remain in the room!" So that's clear then! You have to feel for the people though, business is tough, the housing market must have fallen through the cracks created by the earthquakes and they live under the constant threat of more earth tremors. We both felt the compulsion to visit and spend some dollars to be of some help to the city. I have to be honest and say that the Hotel was no more than OK and the trusses placed to give extra support to the ceilings in the entrance way and on the first floor landing were obvious concerns. Well done people for making the most of your circumstances. Come on you travelers, do your bit and spend some dollars in Christchurch.
