Rude staff, room service wanted to charge me $5 to get the food to my room, heater wasn’t working and it was freezing. Spoke with the receiptionist and he just made up excuses instead of fixing it. I highly recommend ANY other hotel in Christchurch

This just pays the first part of your room. You won’t get it back but it comes off the price when you arrive.

Please note that while I can't comment on a shuttle service, the train station is not walking distance (about a 25 min walk) nor is it on an easy bus route. Your best bet is a taxi or Uber.
