I hope the property management realize the irony when they named this hotel ‘BreakFree’ - the room I stayed in was more akin to a prison cell than a modern hotel room in Christchurch. Yes the hotel will claim that there are multiple room types to choose from, but the decision to stay here is made when booking online. Its only when walking into the room does one realize that a disposition toward claustrophobia is not going to aid a good night sleep. Anyone 6’ or over is not going to be able to stretch out on the bed crammed against one wall. Providing below-the-line accommodation in an attempt to force an upgrade to less slave like quarters isn’t the most fair of business practices.

Kia ora, We operate a 24 hour reception if the room type you had selected did not meet your needs we would have been more than happy to discussion one of the other room types we offer that could have been more suitable for your needs. Kind regards
