Positive Reviews

Prime and handy location

The property is located close to the downtown area of Christchurch. For guests’ convenience, lots of diners, shops, and supermarkets are within walking distance. The city’s main attractions, such as the Botanic Gardens and the Christchurch Art Gallery are located nearby. In addition, guests love that they can get easy access to other points of interest around the area either by foot or by car.

Immaculate, well-equipped rooms

Visitors are impressed with the clean, orderly, and roomy accommodations. The spacious units are equipped with modern amenities and furnishings—perfect for a good stay. Kitchenettes are provided in the units, as well as private living areas. All the rooms are well-maintained and kept clean.

Highly comfortable beds

What reviewers like the most about the accommodations is the luxurious beds. According to them, the beds are extremely comfortable, not too firm nor too soft. Enhanced by a quiet and relaxing ambience in the rooms, guests are able to enjoy a peaceful sleep.

Negative Reviews

Cramped parking space

Visitors with their own vehicles can find the parking lot to be an issue. Reviews suggest that the parking area is a bit small, which can be challenging, especially during full occupancy. Those with large cars find it difficult to manoeuvre in the area.

Foul smell in rooms

Although spotless, guests seem to notice a tiny problem with the rooms. Upon entering their rooms, guests are welcomed by a stale smell, that is attributed to everything from tobacco smoke to mould.
