We stayed here specifically for how close Christchurch train station is to it. It tool my wife and I about 8 minutes to walk from the lodge to the station. Very easy cannot get lost. Upon check in we were informed that our room is in the middle of a reno so we got upgraded for free to a apartment... 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.

Got free WIFI for an hour even though it was not originally promised . But the most amazing part... More

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

Other than its close proximity to the Christchurch Train Station, there was nothing particular satisfactory about this hotel. In most respects, the hotel was lacking for a number of reasons including limited and tight parking; no on-site staff presence except at check in; sliding glass doors were entrance to room, which reduced privacy and security; bathroom sink spouted like a...

The Tower Junction Lodge is totally neat and clean. We had a kitchenette and it was well stocked. The owner was nice also. We stayed here two nights because we arrived by train from Picton and were taking the TranzAlpine to Greymouth and return. The motel is actually in Addington, about 3km west of the city center. It is about... More

A great place to stay! We had been camping for almost 3 weeks so we welcomed a clean bathroom and bed! It is relativly close to the bus stop to take you downtown and the staff are very helpful and accommodating. The only down side to the room our friends had was the shower. It is an 'all in one'...

I know Christchurch is probably expensive, but I expected a slightly bigger room for $125. There was barely enough room to move: you stood up from sitting on the double bed (had to share a double for two single women - not ideal) and you were basically standing at the "kitchen" counter. However, it was only a one-night stopping point... More
