We stayed at Arthur's Court at the end of our South Island tour. The units were very modern, warm and comfortable. I would go so far as to call them luxurious. The units themselves were the best we found. However, don't be fooled by the comment made by reception staff that the double glazing will keep out the traffic noise.... More

Very comfortable room and just what we needed after a hectic journey. Highly recommended for families. A bit of road noise in the morning but it is on a busy road. Beds are of a high standard as was all the furnishings.

We had a room invasion at 1:20am as a result of their poor client management practices. It was very embarrassing and very upsetting for my wife. We wont be staying there again despite an offer to reduce the next stay by 50% and room rate refund. The reason for the invasion was explained, however the explanation belies belief and the... More

Lei K, Manager at Arthur's Court Motor Lodge, responded to this review

Thanks for your review and we are deeply sorry for your terrible experience. Firstly, the lady who was standing outside your door was one of the tourists who accidently took the room key when they spend their first night in CHCH with us. They forgot to return the key when they checked out 1 week and half ago and they... More

This motel is very comfortable, extremely clean and the management are extremely accommodating. I had booked the wrong dates and we also arrived very early after an all night flight from Perth. The manager was extremely friendly and went out his way to find us a room for 3 of us and also booked us in early so that we... More

Would definitely return if we need accommodation in Christchurch again. Clean, comfortable and safe. We had a car so location was not an issue. Found it fairly expensive, but apparently most ChCh motels are these days anyway. We had two adults and two young children. Enough space, but not large. Seating was only for two, but dining table seated 4.... More

We stayed here on our way to Melbourne we arrived late and left early so we didn't see anyone. The room was very clean and the décor is brand new and up to date. I thought the it was good value for money. The only two things that let it down for me was that the bedroom was very cold... More
