This motel is spotlessly clean, and certainly had all we need for our stay. We had a 2 bedroom unit, with 2 bathrooms, one of which had a spa bath, and a large lounge. Lots of well positioned plugs for charging, and free wifi, which worked well. Plenty of information on local dining options provided , which we found useful... More

When I was looking for hotels online I booked this one but I was quickly emailed by Jeff that the room I booked was full. Emails were sent back and forth trying to figure out a room for me. In the end I was upgraded at no extra charge and everything went through smoothly. The room was beautiful, downtown was... More

Closest motel to the centre of the city! Everything was nice and clean, the cups and plates looked brand new. The manager was friendly with a good sense of humour and happy to give good advice and information. Room was quiet and spacious and the beds comfortable enough. WiFi was free (1GB Free per day, an extra 5GB for $5)... More

Hello AllanOrewa and thanks for the review and yes, the plates are just about brand new - earthquakes took care of all the older things..... so had to buy new!

My husband and I stayed here for 2 nights in Oct. That wasn't long enough. We arrived after a long days drive and what a welcome sight our room was. The owner provided very useful information on getting around and to a restaurant that night. A list of restaurants and a map were also provided. Jeff cheerfully carried my suitcase... More

Hi there KS66215 and thanks for reviewing us. A lot of our guests say what you did in your second sentence - nice to either read or get told that!

We needed a place to stay overnight after our flight, and this motel fitted the bill. It seems to be at the quieter part of Christchurch, fewer tourists seem to be in the streets, but the motel is comfortable, spacious and met our needs. There were eating places within walking distance, and the host was helpful with sharing on places... More

Hi Meg and thanks for the review and yes we are in a quiet part of town - always has been! We are close to town but not that close that it gets caught up in the hustle and bustle. Close enough to walk to the entertainment area but not close enough to hear any noise from it. Great to... More

we stayed here to visit the Antarctic Connection. The location is close to downtown and near lots of trendy places to eat. The room is huge and has some cooking appliances but not a stove. Basic price does not include breakfast but they sell breakfast items at a reasonable cost. Manager and assistant were very generous with travel information. Only... More

This was our last NZ night and Colombo was set up perfect for any traveler. They had maps for restaurant and walking tour suggestions, all amenities i could need, plus extras like cookies and milk. Kind of sad we only had 1 brief night before catching an early flight out.

Thanks for the review KJohn685 and we do wish ou had stayed longer too! But as you say, we are a great option for a place to stay for a last night before flying out on an early morning flight. You get to enjoy the central Christchurch area and then you are only 9.9km drive from the airport! More
