We were welcomed so niceley and got recommendations for restaurants and bars that we felt like staying with friends immediately. Staff is very good. The room was spacious and clean. Bed was very comfortable and the bathroom good. The place is situated very close to the park and main dining/drinking road, so you have no problems to be entertained. Don't... More

We were very happy with our stay at the Focus Motel, spotlessly clean and Roy was very friendly and helpful. The room had a nice living room area and kitchen and the separate bedroom had a wonderfully comfy king sized bed.

I was driving from Queenstown and it took longer than I thought, and I arrived about 30 minutes after the office closed. I phoned on the way to make arrangements, and was surprised that Roy and Carol waited up for me. My modern apartment was great, and so was the location. Walking distance to the city, right near the casino,... More

This Motel is ideally situated in the centre of Christchurch. We were very kindly upgraded to one of the suites on the first floor which was beautifully clean and spacious and even has its own balcony. The bed was really comfortable which was ideal after a month touring in a campervan! The hosts were lovely and very accommodating with our... More

We were pretty pleased with our two bedroom suite at the Focus. It was clean and tidy, and the linen was comfy. Our daughter also liked the chocolates that were left on our beds. The manager at the front desk was also really friendly and helpful. The location is close to the casino and nearby to restaurants. The only negative... More

Sleek, chic and a very friendly welcome. Only wish we could have stayed longer. We kindly got upgraded for no extra charge and the suite we were upgraded to was lovely. I would recommend this motel to people of all ages. Great location and great motel!

We spent 3 nights in a motel-style unit at the Focus Motel & Executive Suites in Christchurch. The room fitout and cleanliness were of excellent standard. The location was excellent, too, with everything in central Christchurch accessible on foot and plenty of good restaurants nearby. There is an in-house coin-operated guest laundry which is helpful when travelling. The owners were... More

Had studio room for 1 nt before flying back to Wellington. This was not my cheapest bed in my touring around, but was super comfy and very clean. Mini kitchen facilities which I didnt need for 1 nt stay but could be handy for longer stays. Spa bath was nice bonus. Bed very comfy. Decent tv. Location opposite casino. Also... More

I stayed at Focus for a few days for work. It is a lovely place to stay for either short or longer stays and I hope to return in the future. I cant recommend it highly enough. The two bedroom unit I stayed in was warm, peaceful and extremely comfortable. It had everything you could need or want, including a... More
