Great place to stay. Close to everything and short walk to some great eating places No road noise and very clean and tidy Comfy beds and large rooms. What else can I say if you want to walk everywhere and check out the city this is the place to stay

Hello Pam C and thanks for your review. Thanks for concentrating on our location in the heart of Christchurch and how it is an easy walk to just about everything in the city centre.

The unit was very good value for money, in a fantastic location for walking to restaurants and the central city, with great off street parking. We were very impressed with the efficient way this complex is run. Buses run along Colombo Street for easy travel around Christchurch. We left the car at the motel for much of the time.

The room was great, as expected from the reviews on here. Very quiet and warm and well located. It was made more special by all the little touches; well equipped kitchenette, nice bathroom products, heated towel rack, recliner chairs. Then the service was excellent; we didn't realise that our car hire place would pick us up from the hotel and... More

We stayed here for two nights for purposes of visiting Forte Health Hospital, which and easy 3 minute walk away. The room was quiet, clean and cosy with all the required amenities. The proprietors were friendly and helpful. I definitely recommend this motel for a comfortable stay. Thanks Jeff and Naomi!

Hello AndyH323 and thanks for the review. I am thinking that a little context is required here so that readers can follow what has happened. I'm sure you won't mind.

Great little motel no more than 15 mins from the centre of Christchurch. Well-equipped room. The staff (Jeff) were extremely helpful and informative. A real family feel, and a great way to conclude our tour of New Zealand.

The whole point of a hotel/motel is to ensure that it does not distract from the holiday experience. This establishment is well maintained, spotlessly clean and very close to the city centre. Jeff is the main point of contact: he is knowledgeable, pleasant and will go the extra mile to make your stay as good as possible. He provides a... More
