3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Staff was generally helpful. Good location and well-equipped kitchen. Room was modern and newly renovated, but small. Very little ventilation as the windows can only be opened slightly. The Aircon/air heater wasn't working very well too. Felt stuffy at night; had to open the glass door (which is the main door) for ventilation and that compromised on safety.

We stayed in Tower Junction Motor Lodge mid December and were upgraded to a two bed apartment which was very nice. The apartment was very clean and had all the mod cons necessary for our stay there. The owners were very helpful with giving advice where to go and what to do. Overall, a nice accommodation not too far from... More

Stayed at this motel from 1st to 4th Jan 2015. Spotless motel and good value. Quiet and not far from centre of Christchurch. Ideally situated for catching the Transalpine train from Christchurch to Greymouth (about 600 metres).

We arrived late at night and had little time before leaving for the train station in the morning. This is the perfect location for those wanting to do this. A clean, comfortable place for a reasonable rate. In addition, they provided transportation to the train, at no additional cost! A perfect place for a stopover before catching a morning train.

We chose this accommodation because of its proximity to the Rail Station as we were booked for the Tranzrail train returning a few day's later on the Coastal Pacific. We had planned to leave our car at the station car park but because of insecurity there the Tower Lodge manager very obligingly suggested we leave it at our accommodation as... More

My wife and I stayed one night in Tower Junction En Route to Picton on the train the following morning. This motel has all you need for a one night stay,with an easy ten minute walk to the station with luggage. The room was rather dated compared to others we had stayed in,but for overnight OK. The area that it's... More

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
