    THe locatiopn was excellent

    The room size was cramped and compared to value for money I felt I had paid too much - Have stayed in cheaper hotels with larger rooms in very close by locations and if it was not due to lack of available rooms during my Christchurch stay I would not have stayed.

    not much

    Expensive compared to the neighbouring motels which are much more spacious and far nice than Athena
