Thank you

Room was very comfortable. Communication with restaurant Staff could have been better. Due to Covid Level 2 I Rang the day prior to check if we needed to book to have a meal in their bar on the Saturday night and Was told there was no need to but upon arrival at the hotel we were informed the restaurant and bar were full and we should have made a booking. This meant we needed to make other arrangements at the last minute. Lesson learned, make a booking even if told no need to.

Apologies for the miscommunication that might have caused with your booking at our Restaurant/Bar. This has been passed onto our F&B team to avoid any more situations like these happening in future.

Room clean and tidy. No information about hotel or Christchurch in the room. Were given a disabled room when we are not.This means there was no space to place toiletries.

Dear Kim, thank you for your feedback. Currently we have not put our complendiums back into the rooms due to the environment we are in. In the Superior King room category, we do have a couple of accessible rooms and when we are fully booked, we need to use them. Please talk to one of our friendly receptionist who can help you room move if possible next time. Kind regards,

We had a lovely room that was clean with good facilities. The hotel is handy to central Christchurch so we were able to walk to where we wanted to go. The staff were busy so not able to be as friendly as they could have been. There did not seem to be many on. Car parks were a bit hard to come by as the spaces were often all full but there was extra parking over the road. Lots of building happening on the site so probably less car parks than normal.
