Struggling to find any reasonably priced accommodation in Christchurch for the Scotland game. Bit too old for backpackers !! Has anyone any suggestions, preferably within walking distance of the ground .

Plenty of the backpacker hostels (plus the YMCA) have single rooms available, thus avoiding snorers, farters, and (worst of all) people who rustle their plastic bags.

If you really don't want a backpacker hostel, there are motels. Booking.com has discounted rooms in The Achilles Motel, which gets appalling reviews on Tripadvisor, but seems to be rated OK by Booking.com's own customers from a much larger number of reviews.

As above, Rob got the single room I seem to remember, and the singles are fine and reasonably priced.
Bear in mind that the rebuilding will take appprox 20 years and all the construction guys are in long term in all the rentable stuff so it aint easy pickings. Lots of people walking round door to door with not much availability when we were there and no cricket on then.
Think it was Kiwi Basecamp we stayed at, if you can get that I'd grab it. Just across from the park, 10 mins to the centre (whats left of it, still worth a look) and there are a few bars nearby, which is unusual. Good luck and enjoy it.

An absolute must, and please thank him again from the English lads for his brewery tour and overwhelming hospitality.
