Novotel Christchurch Cathedral Square, Christchurch
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 !

Convenient and clean hotel
Christchurch is still being rebuilt after the 2010 earthquake. This hotel is in the middle of the reconstruction so not a pretty sight. Property lacks pool/sauna/jacuzzi. Concierge is great but Checkin can be improved.
