Bealey International Backpackers is situated at Bealey Ave just 15 mins away from Christchurch Airport and in the corner of the town and a 10 minutes walk to Cathedral Square and the Arts Centre.
It is a small, friendly hostel with garden to relax in. The 100 years old traditional New Zealand house has been recently refurbished. It has a comfortable and homely atmosphere with heater in the room, free baggage storage, 2 visitors parking lots or off-street parking, bicycle parking, barbecue area, laundry room, TV lounge (with DVD and video players), fast Internet computers (insert a $2 coin for an hour usage).
Unique Quality: at a very affordable price of $40 for a double room with shared bathroom and kitchen facilities. (cheapest in town)
If you travel to Christchurch, I can wholeheartedly recommend The Pacific Park Hotel. Run by the Norton Family, Taine the ex All Black and his son Richard, we could not have had a more friendly welcome than we encountered during our 5 night stay in June 2005. Absolutely nothing was too much trouble, in fact they went out of their way to ensure we had everything we needed, and the rest.
Unique Quality: Although there was a major refurbishment ongoing to the Bar and Restaurant, we were not disappointed when it came to either Food or Drink. These are genuinely hospitable people who will enhance anybody's stay in this wonderful part of the world.
Directions: Although approximately 10 to 15 minute walk from the centre, the hotel is well situated.
