The Ibis is in the heart of Christchurch and it is perfectly located to walk around the devastated CBD of the city. The old cathedral is to one side of the hotel and the awesome container village is on the other side.
We stayed only one night, and found the hotel comfortable enough. Reception was good and processed us quickly. Friendly staff makes you feel welcome. We also had an undercover car park which was great.
The rooms: The beds were good. The rooms are pretty small though with little room to move around in. The bathroom equally so. But it was sufficient for one night. The TV was very small and high up - couldn't bother trying to watch anything. The temperature on the aircon could not be changed and the room was too warm.
The hotel decor is very dated and it would make a vast improvement if it could be refreshed.
Breakfast was ample and sufficient.
We booked the room through a special deal and so found the price/value ratio was good. If you can find something similar, it is worth staying there. I'd hesitate to pay full price though.
