Excellent facilities and all the staff were very friendly and welcoming. The room was very comfortable, spacious and clean. The location is excellent, right across the road from Riccarton mall and in walking distance are restaurants, shops, banks etc. I highly recommenced this motel to anyone who is looking to stay in Christchurch.

I recommend staying at these motels. Modern, very clean and great location with Westfields Mall across the road and a bus stop 20 metres from the gate. Helen & Dennis are very courteous and helpful. Will stay there again.
