The unit was exactly as described and very clean. The kitchen was well equipped and there was lots of space. Despite being on a main road it was quiet. The location is fantastic. I would definitely stay again.

We chose it because it was close to ChCh hosp. We were worried about noise, but found it quiet, set back from the road. Very comfortable, lovely bed, and a very pleasant stay thank you.
