A bit disappointed with state of hotel. Starting to feel a bit tatty. REALLY need to sort out the so called cafe where breakfast is served. NOT up to standards of this hotels star rating. Room more than acceptable. Best things about hotel are 7 Dining and Pink Flamingo rooftop bar

Don't normally put reviews out there, but as they have been a bit lumpy for the Muse thought I'd contribute our really positive experience there. I made an error with another booking so was a late choice made by my travel agent, and was nervous after seeing reviews about cleanliness etc but for us no issues at all. Reception, common areas and room (we were on 6th floor) were all spotless. Lift was a bit knocked around but given its used for top floor bar and restaurant supplies a bit of leeway on that. Room decor was art deco lite, with really comfy bed and pillows, good sized bathroom and rain shower head. Water pressure so so, but I've had a lot worse so no issues. Some noise from restaurant above but again nothing to complain about. Location is good and getting better once stadium is built 200m away. Minimal interaction with staff but they were all friendly. We parked out on street as plenty of metered parks about which are free 5pm-9am. We will stay here next time we're in Christchurch, really happy with our experience
