We booked 1 family unit with two bedrooms and one interconnection studio unit. The rooms were clean, tidy and cosy. The kitchen was fully equipped with necessary utensil. The receptionist is a nice Chinese girl. Wifi was stable and the heater worked well. But the tiles in the bathroom made your feet cold before taking the shower. But still considered... More

It was comfortable but a very small room. Could hardly move around in it and I would not want to stay more than 1 night in the place. Got put off by the fact that there was a notice that said don't be noisy as the people next door can hear you. We were a locked door away from someone... More

This was our first visit, but rooms were as others have commented quiet although on a busy street. Rooms are modern, clean and have everything you need. Parking is a little limited would be the only downside. Otherwise good place to stay especially if you need to be near Train station, and also a shopping centre very handy.

Despite being in a room that's close to the (busy) street, we had no problem with the noise. The room was clean and tidy with modern furnishing, and the beds were comfortable. The location is perfect for travelers needing to be near the train station, however it is a bit far from the city centre. Overall, we enjoyed our one... More

Despite being on a main road, this place was very quiet with double glazing. Our room was perfectly sized, even a kitchen with everything you would need. The bathroom was great too. Easy to heat up on the chilly nights. Very clean and tidy. Only downside was the parking for the rear rooms was a bit tight to get a... More

We chose the motel because of its proximity to the railway station.The room was small but had everything we wanted,neat,clean and a very comfortable bed.The staff were also very helpful.Blenheim road has considerable traffic but there was no noise. Not the [place to stay if you want nearby restaurants or supermarkets.No complaints whatsoever.

We stayed here for one night. The room was clean and inexpensive. The room was small, but that was exactly what we booked. We walked to Hagley Park and the city center, which took about an hour. We walked to the Tranzalpine train station the following morning, which took about 10 minutes. We chose this hotel because the hotel was... More
