Great hotel handy to local venues

Pros: Very clean. Had a quiet room. Handy to Horncastle Arena and AMI stadium. Plenty of cafes/food places nearby (within walking distance).
Cons: Communication between reception/guests could be better.
A wonderful hotel. Unfortunately when booking we were told that there were airport transfers to and from the facilities. When we arrived at Christchurch airport and rang the hotel for the transfer we were told that we should make our own way to the hotel. $60 for a taxi. I told reception upon arrival that they needed to remove this from their website which they said they were going to do. Language barrier a bit of a problem with receptionist also.

Good location but far too noisy

Pros: Good location, walking distance into Christchurch cbd, lots of eating places nearby, close to railway station.
Supposedly arrived early and room not ready, that was 2.30 pm, and were asked if we would accept another room which we did, interconnecting, very noisy could hear person next door.

New Motel close to town

Pros: We liked the central location. The room decoration and design was pleasant and very clean.
Cons: It would have helped to know when checking in that our room had an interconnecting door so that we could have opted for another room then.
Location: Good shops and restaurants and an Arena located within walking distance.
As this motel is new to Christchurch the facilities were as expected very clean and up to date in design. We had booked a Deluxe Studio Suite, Kitchenette which is what we received but it had an interconnecting door to the suite next door. This was fine when we first arrived as no one was in the next door room. Another couple arrived in the adjoining room early evening and were preparing a meal in their kitchen which was noisy and we could hear through the doorway. As this was only our first day of our three day stay we requested to be moved to another room. This was done, which made me question why we weren't put in this new room when we originally booked in. Small details also like no milk supplied and only two pillows on the bed made the experience pleasant rather than excellent.

Great but room for improvement.

On first booking, info on Wotif airport transfer and while opted for twin beds, hotel received request for king bed. Contact hotel by email week before arrival to confirm stay....had phoned earlier to add extra nights.....never acknowledged or responded to email and on.phoning, extra nights had not been added. Thankfully, room was at back of property which cut out most traffic noise. Location was good as short bus ride into city and close to shops, bars and restaurants.Room was very clean and stylish. Beds very comfortable. Though could have done with hooks and rail in bathroom and extra mirror in main room. They very kindly let us stay in room after check out time while we waited for airport shuttle.

Comfortable apartment in great location.

Pros: The beds, TV in each room plus living room, kitchen well appointed. We all enjoyed our stay.
Cons: The traffic noise was negated by the comfortable beds - had 2 great nights' sleep!
Location: Great coffee and meals ant nearby cafés, well situated for an early morning walk or run. Very spacious and family friendly.
Ideal set-up for 3 separate family members and close to good eating and coffee places. Super comfortable beds, very clean and well appointed. Highly recommended!!
