Another building that has survived the earthquake

We stayed for a few nights in an apartment close by and enjoyed dining at night. Plenty of choice of food and good bars.

I am no gambler, and went with friends so i am no judge of casinos However, we decided to have dinner at the restaurant. Appalling, tasteless and not even a dressing on the salad, and service was very slow. I was an hour between garlic bread and main meal. We had to ask what was going on and also go... More

Kia Ora Ken, The Casino is an excellent all-round entertainment venue so I’m pleased to hear that you still came along despite having no interest in gaming! Thank you! However I am disappointed that you felt the Restaurant food and service was substandard, our F&B team strive for total customer satisfaction and it seems on this occasion we may have... More

Bf and I walked in, made $60 on a slot machine in under 2 minutes, walked back out. A lot of fun for very little investment :)

I'm biased. I don't like casinos, but this one has spared not a lot of expense making it look good. Tea & coffee is free, lighting subdued, and the meals going down in quality as the prices rise. There is a dress code.

Centrally located in the city, a lot of motels run shuttles if needed. Staff friendly and the girl singing was great. We had tea at the restaurant and were disappointed.. The fresh salmon was lacking in taste, and all mains were overpriced. Our waitress kindly advised us to avoid one dish as it would be disappointing! The smorgasbord would probably... More

Christchurch casino has very friendly staff. There are many good restaurants within the compound albeit with a price. The architecture of the building is aesthetically pleasing. however, there were not many gamblers at the time of my visit so I was reluctantly to gamble. Definitely worth a visit when in Christchurch because there is little to do at Christchurch. If... More

Christchurch Casino is in a good part of town for what it needs to do - a bit of a flutter after dinner & drinks at one of the many places nearby, either in the CBD or Merivale. When we went in the evening most tables were open, it was fairly busy and there was a band playing near the... More
