Distinction Christchurch Hotel, Christchurch
Nice hotel in City Center
This is a great property, especially for the value. The room was well-appointed and comfortable. The restaurant on site was also nice. It was very well located in City Center, but guests should be aware that City Center is still rebuilding from the earthquakes 9 years ago so there is lots of construction.

Excellent location and hospitality
Excellent service and wonderful hotel in the heart of Christchurch! We really loved the location downtown. Walking distance to many sights. The manager, Darrel, was extremely helpful in helping to resolve a minor issue upon check-in
