    Perfect

    All staff are specially knowledgeable; Mr Glenn, the front-office manager had impressed me with his hospitality and service.

    The family suite ("children room") has no door for privacy. Other than that, everything is good and proper.

    Good bathroom, nice towel--thin, textured, dried well

    Hated the beds. Very uncomfortable mattresses and pillows. Bed was listed as King single-- That apparently is not a single bed that is king sized, but rather 2 oversize single beds. It was awful!!! The hotel apparently has 4 star rating-- I give 2 stars.

    Good location, very central and near to the Cathedral Square. You can get almost anything nearby. Very helpful staff.

    The heater in our works erratically - on and off. Since my stay was for only one night, I did not bother to hotel staff to get it fixed.

    Staff were very obliging and informative. Room was comfortable, clean and quiet. Great location in the heart of the city. Would be happy to stay there again.

    Both front doors need to be automated - small point, but when you're loaded with shopping, becomes difficult to navigate.

    Great location, room was clean and comfortable. Not exactly flash but did a job

    Room was quite small and there was a constant humming noise which was really loud coming from outside. Kept me awake for a while.

    Access is up stapes which make it tricky with wheeled bags

    Great

    Most conveniently located for city centre and therefore in walking distance of majority of attractions, including botanical gardens and Hagley Park. Hotel easy to find and off-street private parking was a bonus. Also, car was personally accessible when needed. Unfortunately, caught up in earthquake but Manager properly took charge and was most helpful. He said we would get our luggage back eventually - we hope so, whilst mindful that others in Christchurch were not as lucky as we were.

    Nothing. If it reopens after the earthquake, we shall stay there again.

    Very good

    Nice location near city center, and buffet breakfast is a good deal if you pay when you check in (you get a discount). Trolley for city tour is 1 block away. Park across the road. Saw a great exhibit at the museum (Mueck).
