Pros: We stayed at the Colombo on our last night in New Zealand. The room was very clean and roomy. Good size bathroom with strong water pressure and lots of hot water. Our room has a small back patio for some morning air. Great location, walking distance from the heart of town and close to the new hot strip on Victoria Street where we had dinner at the King of Snake (also recommend). The complex was quiet and even with the International Cricket Festivities we had a great nights sleep before our long flight home. We asked for a late check out and even though there were fully booked they were able to accommodate. For what we needed which was not a lot, this was the perfect spot.

Pros: Exceptional stuff
24 hours reception
Shuttle from a rental car company was available
Cons: The hotel is a little spread out: it may take a long walk to reach your room
The price is on the high side
Cons: The entire hotel is currently under construction. The price was outrageous in this context. I booked with kayak for a premier king room. They booked me into a double, until I showed them my confirmation note; the front desk clerk then reluctantly changed my room type and wasn't welcoming as he handed me my key.
Pros: Restaurant was good. Laundry room was very convenient.
Pros: restaurant bar pretty good. We stayed here because it was close to the airport and it did not disappoint. Very close, indeed.
Cons: Beds fair. Ground floor unit surrounded by chain link construction fence with a dign, "Under Demolition." Not a comfortable stay but very close to the airport.
Pros: Nice sized room, clean, comfortable. Close to the airport, when it was raining used the shuttle for door to door service for my early morning flight.
Cons: Room wasn't available until 2 pm even though I called the day before to ask for an early check in.

Located in Christchurch City Centre, this aparthotel is within a 15-minute walk of Chalice and Canterbury Museum. Riccarton House is 2.4 mi (3.9 km) away.
Cons: The room smelled horrible, the sheets haved long hairs from another persons. We prefer pay and go to another place nefore sleep in this conditions.
Cons: my wife standing in a pool of urine in the toilets..
Pros: The location.
Cons: It wasn't a hotel, the name was deceiving as was the description. It was a crappy hostel. No fans or a/c. I understand it's an old building but it gets quite stuffy and there wasn't any fan nor could I open a window. It really was an old junky room. On a good day it could be called quaint, but I was expecting a nice normal hotel room.
Pros: balcony from room
Cons: expensive car parking
Pros: very good value for money. clean and tidy, frendly staff and good location for walk to city centre. great restaurant across road.
Pros: Friendly staff. Hassle free check-in and check-out. Good location with value for money.
Cons: Minor car parking inconvenience during daytime.
Pros: friendly helpful staff, great location & value for money
Cons: One room offered had no bedside table, hanging space or mirror in room which was very pleasant otherwise also no tv,radio
Pros: you get what you pay for but I must say the customer service we got was excellent very friendly and helpful thank you
Cons: having only 1 available car parking space, although because of our nature for staying the hotel staff did accommodate us, which we did appreciate very much Thanks again
Pros: The staff were polite.
Cons: Firstly, the bathrooms need air freshener. I didn't like when I bent down to dry myself, and my nose got too close to the toilet (every day). Just one of the wall dispensers that spray every 30 mins would be good. Secondly, there is no soap by the basins. The soap is in the shower, and was not always full. Thirdly, there is no hand-towel in the bathrooms. So, after having used the toilet, you couldn't wash and dry your hands - which is a huge hygiene issue. To conclude, the hotel needs: air freshener in every bathroom, soap and a way to dry your hands by every bathroom sink. Once that's changed, I'd be happy to recommend the hotel.
Pros: great location great value
Pros: clean tidy cheaper. Not buying frill I don't need
