We stayed 7 days and had a great time exploring the city. We hired bikes and cycled everywhere and saw so much of this lovely City. First time in New Zealand and so glad we stayed at the Kauri Motel late December 2014. The Motel is in a great location, across the road from the shopping mall and surprisingly quite... More

We stayed here only one night before heading out to west. Helen was friendly and welcome us with muffins. The room is very clean. we also cooked our-self dinner with in-room sufficient kitchenette. The most important is a good internet and WiFi provided.

My family stayed at Kauri Motel on December and early January 2015. We would rate this place as very good. Great value for money with great services and kindness. It was located just across big mall, so it was a perfect location. Helen and Denis were so kind and gave such a great help (e.g.useful information and free-coupon discount for... More

while the location is excellent, the rooms are clean and well equipped, it was not what we reserved. After eight days of travel we were looking forward to the spa bath. We reserved a room on the ground floor with spa. We got upstairs without. When I asked the gentleman about it, he had a bit of a sheepish look,... More

The room is as good as brand new. Well equipped and clean. The owners helped me to do laundry twice in my two days stay. Everything is good. Very friendly place. Location is near town center. Recommended!

Excellent location. Don't need a car whilst there. First class accommodation and amenities. Appreciated the muffin when arriving so late and the lift to the train was fantastic. I will recommend this motel to anyone coming to Christchurch. So convenient to everything and I would have been happy to spend my week in the room - it was so lovely.... More

The motel was recommended by a sales representative friend . How right they were! On our initial booking Helen and Dennis e mailed to say they would pick us up if required. This wasn't an issue . However when we said we were doing the Tranzalpine train they offered to take us at 07.30 to get the train agreed to... More
