New Christchurch Property for Choice Hotels

Choice Hotels has extended their accommodation offering in Canterbury with the addition of Quality Hotel Elms to the group.

Quality Hotel Elms (formerly the Elms Hotel) is conveniently located in Papanui Christchurch, midway between the airport and the central city. Just five minutes’ walk from the property is the largest enclosed shopping mall in New Zealand, Northlands Mall and also within five minutes’ walk is the Merivale Mall.

A stand out feature of the property is the new Sapporo Gold restaurant and bar, which opened earlier this year serving modern international cuisine prepared by the hotel’s award-winning executive chef for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. In addition, the onsite coffee shop is open daily.

The property has 96 rooms in total including 69 studio rooms and 19 superior rooms available in a range of configurations. Located on the upper levels of the property with city views are seven luxury executive rooms available with king or queen beds.

In addition, Quality Hotel Elms has one luxury apartment with private facilities including kitchen, laundry, two person spa bath, king size shower and private courtyard.

Other facilities available at this Choice Hotels property include a boardroom with seating for 10, and a new conference and wedding centre that opened in January this year.

Guests at Quality Hotel Elms have access to over 100 free car parking spaces, wireless high-speed internet, and fully equipped guest laundry.

Aileen Cobern, Choice Hotels’ general manager sales and marketing, is very happy to be welcoming Quality Hotel Elms; “It really is the ideal Choice Hotel property with fantastic facilities that cater to a range of business and leisure travellers.”
