My Mobility/health issues well respected and accommodated for with my studio unit being safe, well equipped with handrails in bathroom and hazard free surfaces and flooring etc. allowing... More

Located in walking distance to Christchurch downtown, spacey apartments (we stayed in a two-bedroom unit) with decently equipped kitchinette. The unit was somehow out-of-date euipped, but stil ok, functional and really clean. Powerfull additional heating in the living area, which we appreciated, indeed. Supermarket accessible in not more than 5 minute walk.

I have just stayed at this hotel for the fourth (and possibly last) time. The level of service has dropped under the new management. The rooms are cleaned daily but lack the fine detail they used to have, the motel is within walking distance of the city centre, or just walk 100M to get a bus and they have rolled... More

Last night they charged my credit card with 160 NZD without my prior consent or authorization. The background to the incidence is that we are tourists in NZ, family of 4. We had... More

Friendly staff and good location. They need to buy a decent vacuum as the one they have is rubbish. After complaining about the state of the room they did try to clean it to a decent standard.................

We arrived late after our flight and they left a note on the door directing us to our lit room and key. The 1 bedroom suite was very clean, comfortable and in a good location, fairly close to downtown and easy to get to from the airport. The staff was very friendly and helpful.

We stayed in the Alcala on two different occasions, first in a one-bed unit and second in a studio. I would mark the one-bed excellent and the studio average; surprisingly they are priced the same. Both are very clean and have similar amenities (fast, free Internet, flat-screen TV, comfy bed) except for the unit size and the (studio's) bathroom sink... More

This Motel was "ok" - good for one night close to Airport but noisy next to main road. Bed reasonably comfortable but basic. Good value for money, would certainly recommend for a short stay. Rooms clean and good facilities.

This was a really nice, well presented, clean, warm, roomy unit - with friendly staff. Good location and reasonably quiet street. I arrived at the wrong motel down the same street and was very disapointed with it - but not Alcala - it was great.
