Mr Spencer Ferrier. Smart, modern, elegant, with good service, but the elegance removed the homeliness and warmth that is a characteristic of Christchurch New Zealand

Everything I expected.

The room was well presented and staff were helpful and prepared to step out from behind the desk. It was very nice to have an opening window and not having to rely on air conditioning.

Excellent hotel well located, helpful staff good sized rooms.

A very easy place to stay I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone travelling to Christchurch. Parking is free, and town is walking distance. My only complaint is the fact my view was of a brick wall :(
