We stayed in this motel just one short night (first day in NZ) --- Positive Points : Clean, big room. Safe. Location was +/- convenient, not too far from airport and car rental. --- Negative points : maybe it was due to a misunderstanding between the direction and the travel agency, but when we arrive, quite late, we needed a...

More than suitable for a passing through stop in Christchurch. This might not be the place for people who are spending a number of days in Christchurch. The room is basic but comfortable and clean. We were only passing through and it was just what we needed, a place to crash before a long days drive. The manager (who we... More

I was needing to stay in Christchurch for one night and wanted to find a place that was reasonably priced. 136 on Bealey was just that. It was a 20 minute walk to the main centre and 5 minutes walk from the airport bus route stop. I arrived at about 2 pm and was welcomed by the friendly manager who... More

The room was ideal, amenities excellent, all that one requires for a comfortable stay..A drawback was... More

Stayed 1 night. Very accommodating hosts. Arrived early but arranged a room for us without much hesitation. Clean room but small kitchenette. Microwave only no stove. Wifi reception acceptable. A little pricey considering the location and facilities but not bad for a 1 night stay.

Stayed here last September. Thought it was an average cheap motel until got woken at 1:30am by someone claiming to be the Police. No peep hole or safety chain and wife very scared who was really there, so did not open the door. Claimed he was doing a bail check on someone the Police had put into the motel. On... More

exceptional service, helpful with laundry and other requests, great assistance with email and wifi. Great location to where we needed to be over the weekend. Not bad for noise considering on a busy road.
