Stayed here as booked on the Trans Coastal day trip and this hotel was an easy walk to the station. Helpful and friendly staff at reception, rooms (ground floor) had plenty of space and very clean and tidy. Speights Ale house (on the way to the train station) was handy for food and the super centre at The Tower Junction... More

Very clean, near to train station (took us 15 minutes at a comfortable pace with 2 medium-size suitcases). Kitchenette was great - came with full range of pots, pans, cooking utensils (knives, chopping board) and cutlery and microwave. Even salt and pepper was provided - we could have whipped up a full meal if we had the right ingredients!

Most helpful and welcoming reception. Our ground-floor one-bedroom apartment was very spacious, well-equipped and comfortable, with the spa bath a luxurious bonus and even a little patio garden at the back. Good wi-fi. No shops or restaurants very close by. We didn’t have a car and chose the motel primarily for its advertised proximity to the railway station. However, there... More

We stayed here twice during our stay in Christchurch. The room was very spacious, with a well equipped kitchenette and a good sized bathroom. Our room was nicely decorated and was very clean. The motel is within walking distance of Addington Station (where one can get the TranzAlpine train to Greymouth), and also two shopping malls are very close. We... More

This motor lodge is close to the train station, and that's all that's good about it. That's the reason the info station at Abel Tasman sent us there. The staff was absolutely inept. The woman at the desk didn't know how to set up a morning wake up call. When she finally thought she had done so, the morning call... More

Darren & Anna were so lovely and obliging. They even upgraded us for 2 nights for FREE! The room was very tidy and clean. It was very quiet and also within walking distance to all the restaurants. We really enjoyed our stay at the Tower Junction, it was 5 STAR Service. Darren was so helpful, he even went out of... More

Chose this place as it was walking distance to the train station and we were in between trains. Check in was ok. Room on first glance too. We had dinner outside and when we finally went into the room and closed the door this odor started getting stronger and stronger. Eventually we realised it stank like an open sewer and... More

We only stayed here while passing through Christchurch with the main objective of our trip being to take the Trans Alpine train the next morning. This hotel, was really perfect for our needs. Spotlessly clean and 2 minutes from the train. The staff were also very accommodating with our very late check in, and left our 2 rooms unlocked and... More

We booked 1 family unit with two bedrooms and one interconnection studio unit. The rooms were clean, tidy and cosy. The kitchen was fully equipped with necessary utensil. The receptionist is a nice Chinese girl. Wifi was stable and the heater worked well. But the tiles in the bathroom made your feet cold before taking the shower. But still considered... More
