We only stayed here one night on our way back to Christchurch. We arrived later in the afternoon and checked in. The staff was very pleasant and asked if we planned to watch the Rugby game. We said no so she quickly wanted to see if she could move our room away from the bar/restaurant. We appreciated this!
The room itself was sort of outdated and not as clean as the other places we stayed but not dirty by any means. The bathroom could have used a good scrub but it was only one night so we weren't super picky. The bed was ok and we tried to settle in pretty early.
Parking was free but isn't covered. There isn't free wifi and we didn't try out the restaurant downstairs.
The reason our stay was less than stellar was because of the atmosphere. We always expect some noise in the city but it was unbearably loud until around 3:30 in the morning. I don't really blame the hotel but it definitely detracted from our desire every to stay there again. People were screaming/yelling/partying which resulted in neither of us getting any sleep. We probably would have been better off just trying the extra 3.5 hours to Christchurch that night. Perhaps the environment would have been better had there not been a televised game...
