Everything's fine except the mattress problem again. Too soft. No longer should it be used. Too noisy when open the window which affect the quality of sleep. A very useful restaurant list provided. And the lady introduced most of the right places to visit.

Hello Rita B and thanks for the review. Great to hear you thought everything was fine and that you even titled your review "Very helpful guide info provided." And that you appreciated the intro to central Christchurch that Naomi (the lady) would have given you. Hope you were able to find food that was to your liking. Too soft? Now... More

Excellent hotel with even more impressive owners. Naomi gave us a valuable history lesson on Christchurch that we will never forget. Her stories of the earthquake and the aftermath made our trip so much more impactful, In fact, I can't imagine seeing the city without her guidance. Even though we checked in late, she was warm and welcoming. The rooms... More

Hello Katrina W and thank you for the review. Thanks for liking the info / history lesson we can give at check in. We do think that it is important to help guests understand what has happened in central Christchurch, especially since all our guests end up walking downtown where most of the damage was. That is one of the... More

I enjoyed staying here. The manager was incredibly helpful especially sharing local knowledge about where to eat and shop. The room was clean and comfortable. It was quiet and sunny with an outside sitting area.

I was a bit taken aback by how close this motel is to the demolition/rebuild zone, but I need not have worried.

This is an excellent motel run by extremely friendly staff. The room was well equipped and comfortable, with good, fast internet. The highlight of our stay was the friendly welcome and the advice provided regarding nearby restaurants and landmarks. We were also given some very useful tips for our drive from Christchurch to Dunedin. Would recommend this motel to everyone.
