“A most comfortable start to our NZ adventure”
Reviewed 30 May 2013

After a long flight from the UK, the hotel offered exactly what we needed - a room/suite with plenty of room, comfortable chairs and a soft welcoming bed! The hotel was easy to find with plenty of car parking space. All the usual facilities were on offer with plenty of towels and soap in the bathroom. The staff were very friendly from the reception desk right through to the restaurant and were always willing to chat. Food was plentiful and the choice very good. There is no need to leave hungry! We only spent 2 nights but left fully prepared, rested and ready for the rest of our holiday.

Room Tip: We had booked a suite, so cannot comment on rooms although from our experience we do not believe the...

I and my family have stayed several times now and are never disappointed. The beds are by far the best we have ever slept on and we do motel up and down the country enough to know. Staff are polite,professional and extremely helpful...nothing is a problem.Good size well appointed rooms with decent TV's for a change. The food is also excellent.. at last a chef that knows how to cook a good steak!rest of menu also superb. A bonus having a bath in the unit as well as shower.Very relaxing....especially in the Essex bar area with comfortable seating,TV, soft music and a fire. Love the atmosphere so all you travelers out there call in and see for yourself. We will only now stay here when in the Christchurch area.Well done you guys at the Cotswold!! See you soon.Kind regards Robynne,Peter & Georgia Crowle Cromwell

Room Tip: Ask for for what you require the staff do their best to fit the bill.On inspection if you not happy...

This Hotel has become my home away from home now that I have regular work requirements in Christchurch.
I tried a few before finding the Cotswold on Papanui Rd & this is it for me.

Excellent rooms
Great value for money (& Rewards Points to grab the odd free night  !!)
Friendly & professional staff
A very good menu
A short walk to Merivale bars and restaurants or into the City.
I like the house (pub style) bar & its lounge is set up to do business with a quite seated area.
Takes CRT card which is handy

Room Tip: 1. Pay the small upgrade costs for a 1 bed unit (Really roomy - they're like an apartment) 2. I...

Ideal stop over close to local pubs and restaurants and able to walk into the cbd area or what's left. .close to airport with on site free parking and reasonable priced wifi. Room was good size and separate bedroom. Laundrette on site takes tokens from reception. Look out for the heartland sign if your driving yourself as the Cotswold sign is smaller and easy to miss

Dear The Sassafrassquatch,

Thank you for taking the time to write about your stay.

I 'm pleased to read that our staff was friendly and that the size of our rooms was to your satisfaction.
Due to its location Christchurch need more often heaters than A / C, however on hot days, fans are available at reception.
Our building has only one floor which explains why we do not have an elevator.
Once again, thank you for your comments.

Kind regards
