The location of the Novatel Christchurch Cathedral Square is perfect, within walking distance to everything in the CBD. Rooms are modern and clean and ours had a stunning view of Christchurch and the distant hills. But it's the staff that really make this place shine. They bent over backwards to ensure our stay was great, and when we left some clothes in a drawer in our room they immediately forwarded these to us at our next hotel. This hotel is a wonderful choice for your stay in Christchurch.
