Best Western Christchurch hotels still operating despite earthquake

Best Western hotels in Christchurch, New Zealand are still open and operating for business, despite some damage caused to the city of Christchurch from Saturday's earthquake.

Best Western Camelot Motor Lodge and Best Western Clyde on Riccarton suffered minimal damage and will continue to welcome guests to Christchurch.

Ann Due, New Zealand Sales Manager for Best Western Australasia said, "Despite a short power cut, both hotels are back to operating as usual. Our hotel owners are in good Kiwi spirits and look forward to seeing guests return to the area as soon as possible".

Proving hospitality is still key even after a serious earthquake, the Best Western Clyde on Riccarton were determined to prove a point, even while their power was cut off, using the BBQ on Saturday morning to make coffees and teas prior to their guests departures.

Penny Davidson from Best Western Camelot Motor Lodge praised Best Western for their quick response to the crisis saying that the offers of assistance and support were quickly forthcoming and greatly appreciated.
