Very Good 8.0
good hotel for central christchurch
The hotel is very nice and in a good, central location. Some of the service was spotty (e.g., no one answering when you called for room service or housekeeping). The room was very comfortable and nicely appointed.

Good 6.0
Great room - shame about the internet screw up
Lovely room right in the centre of the city, Cathedral Square. Excellent bed and shower but when I came to log onto the internet I came to screen that wanted to charge me $10 for a single day. After wasting 15 minutes trying to work round this, I stalked down to reception to express my frustration. Oh dear, I should have had free internet access all along! There had been an admin error. Everything was put right but my wife and I wasted a lot of time and experienced a lot of frustration over this issue. Not happy !
