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.

Modern, clean well-appointed motel located at the park end of Blenheim Rd. Easy to find on a main arterial, and the double glazing deals with road noise, and the frosty Christchurch mornings! Staff were pleasant and the wifi worked fine but I was surprised at being expected to pay on arrival for the whole stay. Thought that was unusual. What's... More

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.
