We stayed at this motel for three nights and could not have been happier with our visit. The suite was modern and well laid out with stylish decor. The location is perfect with only a short walk to the central city and plenty of cafes and bars. Carol and Roy were extremely hospitable and helpful.

Have just returned from 3 nights at focus and couldn't have been happier with our stay. Carol and Roy go above and beyond for their guests. Was good location near several great restaurants and bars. Will definitely return when next in Christchurch.

We stayed here for 1 night during the Easter holidays in a 2 bedroom apartment. What good facilities for the price; it had everything we needed and reception service was excellent - Carol had made up the portacot for us which was a godsend as we arrived late with our very tired 3 month old baby to put to bed....

What a great place. We were in a one bedroom apartment (room11) and it had everything we required. Spacious, clean, bright and comfortable. Reception was wonderful with Carol being so helpful. We didn't have a car so Carol advised us how to get around on foot and where to go for basic food shopping etc. Kitchen facilities were good and... More

We were enthusiastically greeted upon our arrival by Roy who was most helpful with identifying where to walk around on the map and where the best area to eat is located. This motel has good parking and is located directly across the casino parking lot. It is an easy walk to the container mall, cardboard cathedral, Victoria Park and the... More

My wife and I have stayed here multiple times and it's always a fantastic stay. Carol looks after us really well going beyond normal service (recently she couriered back my WiFi hotspot I dropped down the lift shaft!). The rooms are lovely and the location - very close to the casino and obviously in the city - is fantastic.

Fairly small "suite" but with everything you need - fridge, cooktop, microwave, etc. Clean, well appointed and comfortable. Friendly manager, very helpful. Location is excellent - an easy stroll to restaurants and the city centre.

This is the third time that we have stayed at this little slice of heaven. Roy and Carol are the consummate hosts, nothing is too much trouble. Great location and fabulous facilities. Rooms are well equipped and immaculately presented. Will be back again in a few weeks 😃.

I've been traveling to Christchurch for business twice a year for the last 10 years, and this place takes the cake. The staff was incredibly helpful, warm and so very genuinely friendly, and the rooms were spotless and had an appealing modern design that I actually really liked (finally!). I was given a small apartment with a kitchenette; simple, relaxing,... More
