Wow - this is 5 star luxury. Everything was catered for in the room even having tv sound in the bathroom. Couldn’t ask for anything more. Will definitely stay here the next visit to Christchurch.

The carpark could do with an upgrade, and the pillows on the bed are rather large but there probably is a pillow menu.

WOW - What a property, and for such a reasonable price! Thank you Crowne Plaza for your excellent accommodation, never have a stayed in a place with such good black out blinds, the bathrooms were also excellent and extra pillow service while I didn't use it made me feel like I really was staying in luxury. Would definitely come back here if I were in Christchurch again, a great central location walking distance to so many things. TIP: If you're in Christchurch walk down the road to Rollickin Gelato, DEVINE!
