The nature of our business has changed significantly as a result of the ground shaking activity of the last 18 months or so. As a tourism operator, we have been affected by the major drop in visitor numbers coming to Christchurch and the South Island, but on the other hand, the demand for short to mid-term accommodation for families needing somewhere to stay while their homes are repaired, and workers who have come into the city for demolition and construction work.
So things are different over our side of town, but we are full and busy, and there is a great atmosphere around the property.
We have put different types of accommodation aside to cater for workers and families, and have also made sure to keep some rooms and units available for our regulars from out of town. We know this post quake demand is not going to last for ever, and place high priority on catering for the needs of tourists from out of town. Right now we are in the process of updating our site with information about which accommodation types are best suited for our new guests, and of course letting you know about all the great facilities that make us a preferred choice over ordinary motels or camping grounds.
If you are a family with young children needing accommodation, the benefits of having plenty of safe outdoors space for the kids to play, landscaped grounds with smooth surfaces for bikes, trikes, skateboards and scooters, plus our indoor pool, which is kept heated at 30 degrees, the playground with jumping pillow and our trikes - are a real bonus. We also have room for you to park more than one vehicle, which makes life much easier if you are here for a few weeks. If you are looking for accommodation during insurance repairs, all you need to do is give us a call to check if we have room, and provide your claim number and the name of your insurance company. We are happy to help if we can.
With the number of companies bringing in workers for construction and demolition projects in Christchurch, there is heavy demand on motels and single bed accommodation. We can also assist with providing worker accommodation, so just give us a call if you are looking for somewhere to house your team members.

In addition to construction industry workers, we are also providing rooms for consultants and engineers who are commuting to Christchurch during the week. Whatever your requirements, please contact us to see what options we have available now and into the next few months.
