My daughter and I enjoyed a split stay at this central motel in Christchurch. The first night we were on ground level with a largish outdoor area (for smokers this is important) the 2nd and third night we were moved upstairs, same sort of layout with a small (very) balcony, but great view of the traffic which some might find...

Only overnight stop, room bit dull/dowdy. We were on room on back side of building. Didn't look like pictures but being on the back was quieter than street front rooms would be as heavy traffic noise. Room clean, beds comfy. Didn't have kitchenette, was just a microwave, jug, toaster etc in a cupboard. Was fine for what we needed but... More

I stayed recently by myself as I had a girls' night in Chch. The front desk lady was very smiley and nice. The building is really weird, old and had a stale unpleasant smell. I was really disappointed as the room photos looked quite good. The room was clean and the bed felt ok., During the night though I discovered... More

We stayed here for one night in December. The room was well equipped and spacious. The staff was very friendly and eager to help. Beds were good but we had trouble sleeping, because of the traffic on the street and the constant heat caused by the lack of AC. Overall the experience was average, but not bad in any particular...

the hotel was quiet nice and the room was spacious and kitchen well equipped. but the hotel had the strangest shower we had ever seen. we really did not figure out how to use it. door to kitchen was not closing. it is a little bit outside city center but still ok to walk. staff was really nice and helpful.

We had our last night in NZ at 136 on Bealey. After a long day on the road it was refreshing to walk into a modern, clean and well ventilated room. The beds were great and the air conditioning unit on the wall filled us with joy, having spent many nights in stuffy hot rooms. The kitchenette has a microwave... More

Good room layout, good bed and bathroom with excellent shower. Free wifi. However the room was too expensive and the noise was dreadful. Unfortunately we had a roadside room. We'd booked two nights (Friday and Saturday) and the constant revving and racing of the boy racers cars drove us nuts. Most unfortunate.

Overall the room is okay with kitchen facilities and free wifi. Request for a room facing the back if you have to stay here. We had rooms facing the front main road and it's noisy with people walking by, morning traffic and sirens from the ambulance (since there is a hospital directly opposite).

Stayed there for a night with a car. Spacious room, fully equipped, microwave oven, toaster,... I did not liked the bed much. Too soft and jumpy. But there is bathtub in a bathroom which is good. The location is good, not far from the city centre - a walking distance. Quiet place.

Stopped at this motel for a night's stay and it is a decent place to stay. The rooms and bathrooms were clean and nice. The room also provided an ensuite facility which could be used in case you wish to cook by yourself. The motel is also situated at a very central location and there are some places to visit... More
