Difficult report to write under circumstances.
Hotel situated a few miles out of Christchurch City Centre but bus stop virtually outside with regular service even on Sundays to city centre. Large shopping centre about 10 minutes walk from hotel. Number of eating places close by and at the shopping centre.
Hotel still recovering from aftermath of Earthquake of 2011. Reception area and restaurant & Bar still under construction hence temporary container office in the car park and temporary dinning room on 3rd floor. Scaffolding on one side of building.
Admire fortitude of staff under these circumstances.
Unfortunately the rooms are basic and tired and need refurbishment. Did not understand the Black net curtains. I know this might be difficult under present circumstances. Could do with a room safe when done. My room was opposite the temporary dinning room on the 3rd floor, unfortunately was awaken around 0530 with hotel staff preparing the room for breakfast.
Reception staff very helpful, could not get on to the FREE internet due to chinese tourists leaving all in chinese. They let me use their PC in the office so I could read my emails. Thank you.
Hope the new reception area and restaurant are completed on time so the hotel can get back to normal and wish them the very best.
