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.

Easy walking distance to city and railway station. Had to get up early to catch train. The room was very bright and a dog barked near our window from next door most of the night but otherwise would put up with this as the location was convenient for us. 6=10

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

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

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
