We stayed in the two bedroom apartment which was compact but modern well appointed and very clean and comfortable. Excellent attention to detail and chocolates on the beds a nice touch. We arrived well before check in time and Carol kindly offered to store our luggage while we toured Christchurch and surrounds. Good location with free Wifi. If we return... More

We arrived in Christchurch to some rain on an unusually chilly day in January. We were welcomed to the hotel and promptly shown to our room (on the 3rd floor) and shown its amenities. We thought the room was a little on the small side and the quality of the towels was not great. However, the kitchenette was nice, if... More

Roy and Carol were both so helpful. They were extremely friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The rooms and bathrooms were extremely clean and the facilities were modern. The best thing about Focus was that the Wifi was free! It was nice to not have to pay to use the internet, unlike most places.

I stayed here twice in 2 weeks. Firstly by myself and then with 3 friends. I made an error with the booking, but they were very accommodating and were able to help us out. Manager, Roy was lovely, full of recommendations and very helpful. The unit was immaculate. Would definitely stay there again.

My husband and I stayed in a studio room for one night and were really happy with everything- Roy and Carol are lovely managers to chat with, very friendly and helpful in directing us around town. The bed was SO comfy, the bathroom made me envious, and the wifi and welcome choccies made us feel just that bit more spoilt!... More

Located at the edge of the red zone and next to the casino. We arrived in the middle of the night (or rather v. early in the morning) and was hoping there was no mistake with our booking and we did not end up homeless in the cold night. Thank goodness the instructions to get in the locked gates were... More

Thank you Roy and Carol for another great stay at the Focus. You made us feel very welcome as usual. The motel is always very clean and the bed is very comforable. This motel is handy to the Casino (nice meals) and not far to walk into The Container Mall. We find the location excellent.

We were in CHC for a week to "marry off" our daughter. We were in the executive suite/penthouse and various other friends and relatives in the other categories of room. The penthouse is very warm and light with a great balcony. We entertained and cooked for about a dozen people with a little creativity (eg pooling cutlery from other rooms)... More

I use the Focus regularly for work and find the hospitality of the highest standard. One day while staying there I was ill and had to stay in my room all day I was served with complementary food tray so I didn't need to venture out. The hosts, Roy and Carol, are always friendly and nothing is too much trouble.
