Our travel agent booked us in here on two separate occasions, once when joining the transalpine railway and another when we were flying out of Christchurch. Staff on both occasions couldn't have been better, especially Suzanne. To call The Ashley a hotel is slightly misleading, as the glass fronted rooms gives the distinct impression of being in the 'Red Light' district in Amsterdam! As I said, on the two separate occasions we stayed here the staff were brilliant. We had a pre-booked breakfast both times and this was fine. I did have cause to speak to the manager on our last stay as we had experienced some strange behaviour in the dining room. The breakfast was a buffet style, however there was a large table set out with a bowl of hard boiled eggs on. Several people were helping themselves to these, only to be told that they were not for general consumption and to put them back. It was quite embarrassing to see people being made to return some boiled eggs; however some made sure they were broken into before the staff could get to them! After my conversation with the manager, he informed me that another group of travellers had specifically asked for these eggs, and had paid extra. It was funny really, but very petty.
