Travel agent booked this hotel for me and family. Slightly apprehensive as reviews on trip advisor are very mixed, but pleasantly surprised. Rooms we stayed were good sized and clean, decent furnishings and comfortable - exactly what would expect at this star rating and price. I suspect we got the more recently renovated wing of the hotel. Grounds of hotel are lovely, with lots of free parking. Earthquake damage is very minimal and hardly noticed. Convenient location for town and airport, with 2 minute drive to supermarket and restaurants. Walking distance to beautiful parks. Staff were helpful. Decent breakfast with good choice of hot and cold. Christchurch is much smaller than I expected, and feels very quiet - probably a hangover from the earthquake. Given city centre options are shut down, I would certainly recommend this place.
