This was a superb choice for my two days in Christchurch. The rooms were spotlessly clean and comfortable and equipped with everything I needed. The hosts were very kind and welcoming and the location was easy to get to and very convenient and within walking distance for everything in central Christchurch. I would certainly choose to stay at Focus Motel... More

As always the rooms were lovely. Everything is spotless and the beds are incredibly comfortable. We always get great service from Carol and Roy who are super welcoming and friendly. We highly recommend Focus.

As other reviewers have noted, the warm welcome of the hosts here really sets the stage for the well-kept, clean, modern yet cozy and comfortable rooms. Location is walking distance to restaurants, Re:START container mall, and lovely botanical gardens. Great base to see Christchurch rebuild. Laundry facility was much appreciated!

Hi, I fly in to work in Christchurch every week and have been staying at the Focus Motel for nearly three years so I guess I know the motel well. First things first, I find a great place to stay depends a lot on the hosts and the hosts at the Focus are diamonds. I have found Roy and Carol... More

Superb facility. The location is prime and safe, close to eateries and the city, and convenient. The room I stayed in was very comfortable and impeccably maintained at all times. The owners are lovely, and I found them to be polite and helpful whenever I needed to speak to them. I wouldn't go anywhere else if I was staying in... More

Spent two nights at Focus a week apart and had a very warm welcome both times from Roy, Carol and their staff. The rooms were clean, very comfortable and the motel is very well placed for the centre of Christchurch, with some wonderful restaurants and bars all within a 10 minute walk. There is no restaurant and a tray breakfast... More

When we arrived at the motel on our first day in New Zealand, we were greeted by a warm friendly welcome. The staff on reception (owner of the place?) was so enthusiastic and helpful. He knew who we were before I told him, he told us all the good places to go to in detail and led us to our... More

When I have to stay in Christchurch for work or pleasure I always pick Focus Motel. The owners can't do enough for you and very friendly. Rooms are always, clean, comfortable and have all the facilities you could ever need. Location is perfect right next to Victoria Street which seems to have a new restaurant or cafe every time I...

Roy and Carol were the perfect hosts for this centrally located ( yet private ) location. Upon our arrival, Roy checked us in personally and gave us a plan to enjoy our 1 day in Christchurch. It made all of the difference. The accommodations themselves were perfect for our needs. Large 1 Bedroom space, great amenities, ( coffee press!) and... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. Roy was very welcoming and gave us loads of info on what was open in the city and where to go round about for restaurants and bars. Our room was on the top floor with a small balcony overlooking the car park. It was very clean and comfortable and we didn't notice any noise.... More
