Very friendly staff - they had upgraded me to a one bedroomed apartment, which was spacious, clean and comfortable. Had all the amenities a traveller would need. In addition the bed was very very comfortable and I was lovely and warm. I will most definitely be staying here again - lovely experience :)
Due to its proximity to the University of Canterbury and the central city, Riccarton has a large student population, giving the area some lively zest. The local Westfield shopping center offers travelers a variety of entertainment options, from shopping to dining to cinemas. Nearby Hagley Park is a great place to enjoy a Venetian-style boat ride along the quaint Avon River.
