We stayed here for one night before boarding train early next morning for a trip to Greymouth. We found all staff extremely friendly , bent over backwards in ensuring we meet the train with plenty of time to spare. The owner actually drove us to the station as a curtesy service. The room was clean and well cared for. We... More

The location is very good, within walking distance to Christchurch railway station, restaurants and supermarket. Going to the Botanic Garden or city center is also very convenient. The room we stayed in is the smallest type, but it is lovely and well equipped with all that we need. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. We enjoyed our stay very... More

The room is spacious, clean and tidy. The owner is friendly, polite and warm. The motel is five minutes walk to the closest restaurant and supermarket. However, there is a bigger shopping mall Westgate, which is slightly further away. ChristChurch botanic garden is about 6 minutes drive away. Free WIFI and basic cooking facilities. Definitely value for money. Will recommend... More

The chose the Tower Junction Motor Lodge because it was the nearest to the train station. But it turns out it is not walkable - at least with luggage. And it is outside the downtown area of Christchurch - so you need a car or taxi. The facility is basically a small motel, but the rooms are relatively large, clean... More

We were spending one night in Christchurch between the Pacific Coast train and the TransAlpine. Tower Junction Motel actually is within walking distance of the station, but we took a cab one way ($11) and our host at the motel offered to drive us back in the morning. Our room was very comfortable and remarkably clean. The owners are a... More

We stayed here because it was close to the station and we were going on the Tranzalpine the next day. The hotel staff were very friendly and gave us a ride to the station in the morning at no cost. The lodge was very clean and tidy

Good location - 10 minute walk to Westfield, restaurants and 15 min to the railway station. Room is warm and equipped with a kitchenette and TV. The only negative thing is the design of the shower. The curtains were not enough to stem the water from getting out and making the entire toilet/sink/shower area wet. Very helpful staff. My taxi... More

As this was only 10 min. walk to the station, 6 min. to Speights Ale House, Cafe and 15 min. walk to Westfield Mall it was the perfect location. Our room was clean/comfortable/quite and well priced with pleasant,helpful staff. Would stay here again. Taxi fare from City bus terminal $23 and shuttle to airport $25.
