I was in Christchurch for the weekend, staying at the FYFFE on Riccarton. The location was not too far from the airport and handy (walking distance) to the Riccarton mall and other shops. The check-in/check-out processes were a breeze and the people at reception very helpful. The room itself was well laid out and had good lighting. The kitchen facilities... More

Had a great stay here (1 night) at Fyffe on Riccarton. Friendly hosts right from start to finish, and an extremely well presented room with air conditioning, HD TV, WiFi. Highly recommend, and will be back next time I'm in Christchurch.

These are nice units - you may want to have one of the back ones if you are noise sensitive as the road is very busy. Great owners who are really helpful.
