Surprised by Joy

Best (5.0 of 5.0 stars)
by written on September 15, 2011

Prior to the earthquakes, I have always stayed in town at some renowned hotel chains. When I was told I was staying in a hotel near the airport, my heart sank.

Then I arrived and found a fantastic facility with great amenities in-house, friendly staff, fantastic, well equipped rooms and a great restaurant.

I'll be staying here from now on - unbeatable value for money and convenience. A comfortable place to stay for the seasoned business traveler.

Unique Quality: - Wireless access throughout the facility
- Free shuttle from the airport (5 mins)
- free voucher per night stay for a drink at the bar or a takeaway barista coffee in the morning.

Directions: Next door to the international airport and 15 mins cab ride from city centre

Excellent Service, Quiet Location

I agree with the other comments. I've always had a good stay here. Friendly, helpful service. Quiet and away from the bustle (in a good way). I've stayed downtown but prefer it here, it's a quick ride into downtown.

Unique Quality: Family owned and they're great with return customers as well as newcomers. Recommended for Antarctic Program visitors.

I have been to this same hotel for all 3 of my trips there. They treat you like family. The Patterson family owns it. You will not be dissappointed.

Unique Quality: They have free bus passes for going downtown. Once downtown you can walk anywhere and see so much.

Directions: Only about a 3/4 mile drive from the Airport on Memorial Drive

Stayed there for 3 months. Friendly and helpful staff, clean comfortable rooms and a wonderful bar and resturant. Although not in the center of the city, it's location is a good jumping off point for all areas around Christchurch.

Unique Quality: Convienent location to Airport and International Antarctic Center. Free bus passes into city.
