Guest reviews

  • Single

    Very convenient. Loved the room design - only recommendation I would make is to put in blackout curtains - us North islanders are not used to the bright sky! Staff went out of the way to accommodate my stay which was appreciated.


  • Older travelers

    ots of room, very clean and modern, very well-equipped, nicely appointed, very close to the downtown area. Would happily stay there again for several days, as it would make a perfect base for exploring the Christchurch area.

    Our only issue was that sounds carried from other parts of the building - stairs, doors, footsteps, so that it seemed a bit noisy, although there was no city noise.

  • Single

    Good budget accomodation. Extremely clean with nice linen. The studio was very small but fine for just a place to put your head very near to Red Zone of city centre. There are restaurants a very short walk away. In addition to tea/coffee making facilities in room there is a full kitchen available if required. It suited my purpose perfectly and I would stay again.

  • Couple

    It was a well-furnished room. Everything was provided and was of high-quality.

    The room size was too small. Definitely not worth NZD 120.

  • Single

    New apartments and extremely clean.

  • Couple

    Modern furnishings and clean.

    We stayed in #33 - right next to entrance way. Room was not soundproof, early in the morning we could clearly hear peoples conversations and noise as they were coming and going. Also, the shower does not fit in holder so you have to hold it in one hand to shower - I realise this was a wheelchair accessable apartment but we did not need one or request one.

  • Older travelers

    Very convenient - friendly staff and clean and tidy

    A bit cramped with access from the bed although the layout was good for its size, but we were only overnight - would go to something with more space for a longer period perhaps - only a minor detail as far as we were concerned but being straight up here to answer the question honestly?

  • Older travelers

    Modern New , Nice & clean Apartment hotel with all apartment amenities .

    Small room .

  • Older travelers

    Location was great, relaxing comfortable stay. Loved it.

    The Fire Alarm was a rude awakening, and the fact it some time to turn it off once Apartments were safe to return too.

  • Older travelers

    Compact accom, but with all the necessaries. .

    Fire alarm at 5pm

  • Older travelers

    we liked the location, the clean and well stocked room and the awesome staff

    The bed against the window which felt cold and condensated. We couldnt leave the window as other guests were coming and going just outside the window.

  • Single


    Too small needs air conditioning better ventilation smelt damp

  • Older travelers

    Design. Modern. Spotless. Easy access

    Access to the bed. The apartment should be advertised with a health and safety warning. One person needs to clamber over the other to get in and out of bed!! A smaller double turned the other way would be perfect.

  • Single

    The room was an excellent size, with good layout, separating living & sleeping PLUS a well equiped kitchette. Double Glazed windows kept City noise out. Great vehicle parking. A lot closer to town centre than I thought. I will stay there again.

  • Couple

    Good location, nice staff.

    Felt like we were in a caravan. Also walls are paper thin - can hear doors being closed, people in hallway, etc.
