We stayed here for 3 nights during a busy time in Christchurch (due to the cricket world cup). We cooked in the unit one night and although there wasn't a hot plate or saucepan in the room, the staff quickly found some to lend us. The kitchenette was otherwise well stocked, including a cafetiere.
It is an easy walk into the city and also handy for getting out to the airport.
It was great to find out our room had been upgraded. However, it didn't seem to be too busy but our room was upstairs at back building. With children, lots of bags and off a TAXI, not our own or rental veh to leave some things in, was a bit of a mission. In the morning it was rainning and it didn't get any easier or more pleasent for one night stay only.
I have advised late check in and very early chck out as we were catching train to Greymouth.
I would recommend people in this circunmstances to be allocated in a more in-and-out friendly manner.
The staff could not be nicer and were very accommodating. They went out of their way to address any questions and provide any help I needed. The room was clean except the carpets were not in the best condition. Shoes a must!

While only at Ashford for one night, the rooms were spacious and the baths very nice; the showers spectacular. Neal recommended a great restaurant for dinner and for breakfast - both within walking distance. Super location relative to downtown and airport. We were given coupons for Willowbank when we mentioned we were headed there.
Only reason for not getting a straight excellent is that parking is very tight.
