We stayed here for 1 night, 5 years ago and remembered that it was a pleasant hotel, offering a free shuttle service to Christchurch Airport.
Five years on and it has not changed much, so looks a little jaded, but the rooms are clean and comfortable and the sleep superb.
Breakfast is a plentiful buffet and I was able to get Soya Milk on request.
The restaurant is noisy in the evening as it is open to the paying public, but you can get a decent pub meal in the bar.
Free shuttle bus to the centre of Christchurch in case you don't fancy the 20 minute walk through the park, but unfortunately, they have stopped the free airport shuttle service.
If you try walking in the opposite direction to the city centre, you will find a big shopping centre with restaurants and a cinema within 10 mins of the hotel - just ask at reception for directions.
For golfers, you can get clubs to play the local park 9 hole all for 10 NZD.
We stayed for 6 nights and found it to be excellent value.
