Fable CHC
At The Fable CHC two twin beds did not mean two double beds, which was surprising as it does in in most hotels, and the free bottle of wine I received with my gold card club here was only a 250ml bottle a little disappointing, but still a nice glass. Otherwise a nice hotel.

Arriving at the Fable, I realised this was my regular hotel in Christchurch but under a different name. Centrally located, this hotel is perfect for us. Friendly staff and well maintained

I did not receive a GST receipt from my stay? The elevator broke down and one of my colleagues got stuck in it.

Excellent location, close to amenities. The twin room we were in had single beds rather than the promised king singles, other than that the room was very clean, the overall service was good and we had a pleasant stay here.
