This hotel was very well placed for the holiday start (1 night) and end (2 nights) of our time in the south island as it is an easy 10 minute drive Christchurch Airport. You can walk into the city centre (about 30 mins), but the hotel runs a free shuttle until about 7.45 pm.
Our rooms looked inwards, so there was no traffic noise – they were comfortable, but it was worth paying for an upgrade for our last nights as the standard room (first night) we had got little daylight and was more cramped. Room service was somewhat haphazard though – the porter was doubling as shuttle driver.
The grounds are attractive and there is a reasonable sized outdoor pool (several using it, though we didn’t). The main restaurant is good for breakfast (good buffet selection and service) but lacks atmosphere for dining in the evening. The bar, where we ate on our last night as there was heavy rain, had more atmosphere and good value meals – either from the bar or restaurant menu.
