Positive Reviews

Spacious units, popular with families and groups

Guests were truly impressed by the size of this property's accommodation. The all-around spaciousness of the units here made them an excellent pick with families and larger groups of visitors. The layout itself was also praised; many liked the separation between the lounge and bedroom areas, a point that ensured that there was plenty of space for everyone to spread out.

Good location and value for money

A short walking distance from central Christchurch, guests praised this property's location in relation to the city's main sights. Handy for the botanic gardens as well as Christchurch's quirky cardboard cathedral, guests were pleased to find that there was no shortage of things to do near these apartments. Given this, many felt that this property represented good value.

Warm welcomes earn repeat stays

The staff at these apartments are impressive. Always warm and welcoming, they ensured that things started off on the right note in terms of the customer service experience and continued to be helpful throughout the duration of guests' stays. For many, this outstanding level of service sealed the deal, with guests saying they wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

Negative Reviews

Mould in bathroom areas

Mould in bathroom units was a consistent concern at this hotel, with many noting damp conditions in these areas.

External noise an issue

Many reported that noise from the nearby street was audible in guest units here.

Scruffy interiors

Units could use some TLC; hanging plugs and sockets and worn sofas and carpets were commonplace.
