Nice and quiet
This is a great little find. Off the main road so quiet at night but close to the mall and a bunch of food outlets. The heater was already turned on when I arrived which was a really nice for a cold night arrival. This was such a warm and comfortable place to stay.

Would stay again!
We stayed here three nights and really enjoyed our stay. Staff are friendly and the room was modern. Great shower, kitchen and bed. It is situated on a busy road with very easy walk to Riccarton Mall, and the room was very quiet and cosy.

Easy walk to train station and eating places
A handy location within a 5 minute walk to both train station and eating places which suited our 18 hour stop over in Christchurch. Room was modern, spotlessly clean, kitchenette had the necessary items for a short stay and an outside seating area off the room was a nice bonus.

fortable, clean, near station
Ideal place for getting to station early a.m. lots of eateries nearby. Very comfortable, apart from bedding too thick and hot for summer but really, all good.
