The owners were so welcoming and nothing was too much trouble. Lovely complimentary items in our room like biscuits and muffins and makeup remover in the bathroom. Right across the road from a shopping mall. Would definitely recommend.

Couldn't be closer to riccarton mall for shopping, yet the rooms are lovely and quiet. The hosts are lovely friendly welcoming people. The rooms are spotlessly clean and tidy and smell clean, No horrible food smells. The specially labelled face cloth for removing makeup and a disposal makeup wipe is a fantastic touch, as were the 2 chocolate muffins on... More

Kauri Motel was a great place to stay. Easy to book online with a great price. Great communication from owners and flexibility for our needs. Beautiful interior and really great location for our needs in Christchurch. We will be back!

Stayed in Christchurch for 3 nights and was well taken care of at this motel. Ours hosts ensured that we had all the best deals for dining out around town and even placed buckets of water near our car for those icy morning frosts. Comfortable rooms and really pleasing to see motel hosts going that extra mile.

Seconds to public transport, less than a minute to a large and comprehensive shopping mall. Safe, clean, quiet and luxurious. Owners are relaxed and at ease when welcoming guests and even offer a pick up from the airport (and that saves close to $50 if you do that trip by taxi). This is my first choice (and I've tried a...

This motel was recommended to us....can see why! Great location across the road from Riccarton mall, (fresh coffee handy in the morning) so clean, friendly super helpful staff/ management. We had a room overlooking the road but was nice and quiet as all double glazed. Highly recommended

Excellent, friendly service and very helpful with places to go for tea or things to do. Muffins on arrival - such a nice touch!! Would recommend Kauri Motel as this is right across the road from the Westfield Mall and local takeout places and restaurants not far either.

To book the room was very simple and we had a number of special needs that had to be met, they were all met. The service was very good and we were given a chocolate muffin when we arrived. I would recommend it to anyone wanting a nice and friendly place to stay in the Riccarton area.

To start off booking a room in advance is a hassle free process. The service in my opinion is the best I have seen in a long while. People here go the extra mile to get to know you and ensure you enjoy your stay. The accommodation is very affordable and packed with features from several SKY channels to a... More
