From the internet banter I was expecting something very special. We ordered the room with the spa bath and with our gear and the two of us we were very crammed. Very disappointing I wouldnt stay there again. The room is so small. The toilet is to close to the bed

We arrived on a very wet Saturday with a new motorbike and we were so well looked after by the managers. Really lovely, friendly people. Room was clean and nice. Good location for access on foot to shops etc.

If you need bang for buck don't stop here, now that's the down side. I had the one bedroom unit with spa bath, shower and cooking facilities. However the staff are friendly and willing to go the extra mile. Now down to the room. Clean and tidy - Good start - However it is very cramped with not a-lot of... More

Great place to stay, just the best. Close to all amenities, and has everything you need when traveling, All cooking facilities including frypan. You can go wine and dine at Restaurants or simply purchase Snapper Fillets from Pak & Save across the road with a nice Bottle of wine, and cook the fish yourself. No problem with this place. I...

We went to Christchurch in June before the devastating quakes last year. We were on a driving holiday and decided to ditch our booked so-called villa ( in fact it's a run down house, smelly, creepy and gloomy ) My children were too scare to stay in that villa. We drove around Christchurch to look for a night to stay,... More

Have just had three nights staying at Kings. We were greeted by very friendly staff and a basket of yummy, freshly baked muffins. Our studio room was compact but had a well equiped kitchen area, ensuite and a little courtyard with table and chairs. Spotlessly clean and the grounds and buildings are well maintained. Westfield Shopping Centre is a two... More

Stayed for one night in this motel before continuing on to the west coast. The room was modern, very clean and comfortable. Its in a great location right next to the Westfields shopping complex, and on the main road heading out west of Christchurch. We stayed in a room at the back of the motel so it was quiet. Friendly...
