This was a disappointing stay. There are many options in Christchurch central and we've stayed in others that are better, for less. The pictures give the impression of a high end hotel but in fact it is just a hole in the wall entry. Very underwelming. We arrived well after check in time, but our room wasn't ready. The reception staff made us feel like an inconvenience. The lift was broken and we were not given instructions on how to find our room. The room itself was a box. Good size but very small bathroom. You could say its minimalist styling but actually it is just understyled badly for a central city hotel. It is functional - utilitarian even, but not stylish. The big round windows are nice but as you cant open them you are left depending on the circulated air system which is rather stuffy. There was nothing but terrestrial TV, no mini bar gym, or food service. Now I don't paticularly need all those things when travelling but the point is that their advertising oversold and underdelivered.
