    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.

    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).
