What our patrons say

Fantastic spacious room with top notch facilities, and helpful staff.

This is a special spot to stay close in to what Christchurch has to offer as it re-emerges from the devastating earthquakes. Having stayed in Central Christchurch many times to attend functions or theatre, this is a haven that has re captured what has always been part of the Christchurch experience .....a bit of a class act with some Canterbury flair !!!!!

Fantastic service, food was amazing. Will be back for a tray of tapas again. We dined with 2 friends who had never been to polo club and they absolutely loved it also. Warm friendly and attentive service.

We had a fantastic stay, the staff were super friendly and accommodating, the family suite was perfect for our family of 4, food was lovely and location was great for exploring the CBD. Happy to recommend to anybody!
