With many of the major hotels in Christchurch now closed, I stayed for a 2 night business trip. The hotel is adjacent to the airport, though a little too far to walk with bags. But I called the free shuttle from the terminal which arrived within 5 minutes. Check in was smooth and efficient and I was pleasantly surprised to get 24 hour WiFi at $10, which is cheap by NZ standards. The WiFi speed is good BTW.
The room is pleasantly large with 2 queen beds, a small writing table and chair and other furniture. Room temperature was fine, though not sure how easily adjustable it is. The bathroom is quite reasonable with both bath and over-bath shower, both with reasonable water pressure and adequate water temperature controls.
Ate in the on-siter restaurant both nights, food was good and reasonably priced and service attentive and professional.
Overall I was very pleased with the hotel. Its a little dated (probably built in the 1970's) and lacks facilities such as a gym (there is an outdoor pool but given this is Christchurch its probably usable about 20 days a year), but the rooms are large, well appointed and the staff are efficient and friendly.
Just be aware it basically a long way out from the city. Its convenient to the airport and the next door Antartic Centre, but the CBD and most attractions in Christchurch are a fair distance away.
