We stayed for two nights on arrival and prior to departing Christchurch.
If you're after a relaxing quiet pad with all the facilities you need to feel at home and within close proximity of basically everything else, this is the place for you. All the little things like showers, heating, quiet stairs were things we appreciated. Katrina was also an amazing host. 5+ stars.
Five stars in all areas and 6 stars for the personal touches provided by Katrina. The apartment was spotless, well appointed, has all the modern conveniences and is in a good location. 10 minutes walk to the city and 10 minutes drive from the airport. Katrina is fabulous. Easy to contact and always helpful. We really appreciated all the personal touches Katrina provided. We will definitely stay at 444 the next time we are in Christchurch.
Excellent location - everything was so clean and well maintained. Katrina has thought of everything we might need or want. would definitely recommend and would stay there again in a heartbeat.
I booked 444 On The Park primarily because it has three bedrooms, making it a much better choice for a three-kid family than the usual motel/hotel options. We were really, really pleased with it. Agree with the positive comments in the other reviews. All the extra thoughtful little touches made it feel more like staying in someone's home rather than rental accomodation. Strongly recommended.
So I'll start by saying as we turned into the driveway of this townhouse complex my daughter said "please don't let it be in here"... but that's kids for you. Admittedly it's probably not the most beautiful apartment complex that's ever been, however she changed her tune pretty quickly, particularly as she was chillin' on the comfy couch, watching netflix... but yet again, that's kids for you...
Of all our time in NZ, staying in holiday houses, this felt the most like an actual home. The kitchen appliances were bountiful, useful and of a decent quality. So my usual dramas of having to take forever in cheap pots on crap stoves to cook dinner, didn't occur. Fantastic kitchen, good pantry with all the basis staples, so you don't need to worry about the basics. Comfy beds, strong wifi, netflix, and a beautiful 20 minute walk into town, or 2 hours if you happen to get engrossed in the beautiful park, and the botanic gardens, watching the punts and the ducks and playing in the autumn leaves... it's just bliss...
Oh, and there is a table tennis table - love a table tennis table :-)
