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.

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.

We checked in to this motel using Christchurch as a bit of a stop over point on our tour. However the owners of this motel were just superb. Really nice and full of information that was very useful and informative. Overall a pleasant stay, but just let down a little by the slightly dowdy rooms and a general feeling of... More

Loved the large clean room. enjoyed the Thai takeaway across the street but the kitchenette was well equipped if you wanted to self cater. Would stay again, but not really walking distance to downtown, We stayed as it was close to the intercity bus stop but the bus... More
