We stayed for 2 nights. This is a nice family run motel, rooms are clean, comfortable, and well presented. Our 2 bed apartment was perfect for our needs as we have 3 children. The couple managing the motel were happy to help with anything. I would recommend this place to anyone.

We start our road trip in south Island from Christchurch and stayed our first night at Alcala. The beds are good and it has a small kitchen to cook. It is a cheap and good place to stay. The manager is very friendly as well.

Stayed here for 3 days recently, I found my room to be very clean and quite new. Great bathroom and probably the best water pressure of any shower I have had in any of the accomadtion I've stayed in around the country. The motel manager was helpful and funny.

We stayed here twice on separate nights. Our first night we arrived at 2am and the managers were extremely helpful, left the lights & the heater on for us. The first night was in Room 4, an upstairs brand new 1 bed unit with modern decor and a very comfortable bed. We were so impressed that we booked to stay... More

It is a nice place all around. A little far from the CBD than I would have liked. The staff was great though! Reserved a shuttle to the hotel, and a taxi to the train station the next morning!!! Room clean, and comfortable. Ask for a ground floor though.

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 The unit was somehow out-of-date euipped, but stil ok, functional and really clean.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.
