My wife rang this motel to ensure that she could reserve a ground floor room for herself and he 84 year old mother. She was assured at the time of the reservation that they could meet her requirements. When she arrived she was given a room on the first floor where she and her mother had to climb the stairs...

The room was a bit tight but contained everything you will want for a comfortable stay. The bathroom was spacious however and had a lovely shower. There is a well equipped kitchenette. Located in Ricarton road, there many convenient shops and small cafes, take aways and restaurants near by. Good laundry area available also and large car park.

I stayed at this motel with my moderately mobility impaired father. I asked for a ground floor apartment if possible and this request was granted. We had a warm welcome on arrival. The room was comfortable and met our needs more than adequately. It had a large enough spa bath and very comfortable beds with good linen. Unfortunately the cleaning... More

We stayed in here 1 night on spec. The motel was fairly new and well run and clean. Our room had a spa bath which was a bonus feature. But quite a bit of road noise and a digger worked till 2am across the road from the hotel. Two rooms one was a bedroom both had TVs. Good amount of... More

We stayed here as a last minute decision when arriving on a late flight. It is quite basic, however everything was clean and the bed was comfortable. Staff are nice and friendly. It will do the trick for a night’s sleep although it is over-priced @ $160/night.

We were getting discouraged looking for a hotel in Christchurch. We had a 2bedroom unit and found it to be fine and large enough for our stay. My only complaint would be that there was either a concert or sporting event nearby and it was a noisy night until around 11:30. I imagine it would have been the same in... More

Riccarton Motor Lodge looked good on the Internet when we booked it but it really let us down! However, firstly the positives: fairly close to a Westfield shopping centre and also quite an easy drive to the centre of Christchurch; the gentleman in Reception was very pleasant and obliging; the water pressure in the shower was great; the kitchenette was...

The lodge is within walking distance to Westfield Mall. The room is very clean and good size. We were given an upgrade to a 2-bedroom unit. The room had more than enough bath towels and was nicely lit (I don't like dingy lit rooms). There are many TV channels - even soccer channels that show the EPL and Champions League... More
