Booked because of its proximity to Christchurch Addington railway station, this scored with being just 10 minutes walk from the railway station which is ideal for going on the TranzAlpine scenic trip. Just a short walk from restaurants and a large supermarket We spent two nights here doing little more than sleeping and we had comfortable nights and good sleeps.... More

We were extremely happy with out Motel room, we particularly wanted to stay close to the Railway Station. The room which was ground floor, was very clean, modern and comfortable. The staff were very helpful, of course a little kitchenette was included in the room, and our hosts obliged by offering to take us to the Railway Station fairly early... More

Stayed here as booked on the Trans Coastal day trip and this hotel was an easy walk to the station. Helpful and friendly staff at reception, rooms (ground floor) had plenty of space and very clean and tidy. Speights Ale house (on the way to the train station) was handy for food and the super centre at The Tower Junction... More

Very clean, near to train station (took us 15 minutes at a comfortable pace with 2 medium-size suitcases). Kitchenette was great - came with full range of pots, pans, cooking utensils (knives, chopping board) and cutlery and microwave. Even salt and pepper was provided - we could have whipped up a full meal if we had the right ingredients!

Most helpful and welcoming reception. Our ground-floor one-bedroom apartment was very spacious, well-equipped and comfortable, with the spa bath a luxurious bonus and even a little patio garden at the back. Good wi-fi. No shops or restaurants very close by. We didn’t have a car and chose the motel primarily for its advertised proximity to the railway station. However, there... More

We stayed here twice during our stay in Christchurch. The room was very spacious, with a well equipped kitchenette and a good sized bathroom. Our room was nicely decorated and was very clean. The motel is within walking distance of Addington Station (where one can get the TranzAlpine train to Greymouth), and also two shopping malls are very close. We... More

This motor lodge is close to the train station, and that's all that's good about it. That's the reason the info station at Abel Tasman sent us there. The staff was absolutely inept. The woman at the desk didn't know how to set up a morning wake up call. When she finally thought she had done so, the morning call... More
