Stayed here for the first time as close to family. Clean and tidy, which is a must, but very dated. Badly needs doing up. Bed comfortable although we would prefer sheets that weren't stained. Good off street parking.

Stayed here three nights looking after a girlfriend after surgery, Staff very accommodating, room very clean. You can tell the room has had earthquake damage and some repairs have taken place. Everything we needed worked and was clean, bathroom could do with a bit of a make over. If you want a quiet motel, be aware this is on a... More

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

Having visited Christchurch several times, staying at the same motel, we decided to find a different one by checking the internet..The one that we decided on was 136 On Bealey-Avenue Motel..We arrived about 7pm and were met by a bright, cheerful young woman, Ashley.{sp?}. 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
