Spotlessly clean room and furnished very nicely, but I think the door fitting must have been faulty on our room as we kept thinking we had left it open due to the noise levels from the road. Ear plugs were necessary for a good night's sleep. Good location not far from airport or town and a short walk to the... More

Thanks for your review. We appreciate you noticing and commenting on the cleanliness. This is our speciality and it is always great to get positive feedback in this area! Our rooms have double glazed windows and the building is quite new as well, thus noise is hardly an issue when door and windows are closed. However, as you mentioned the... More

Arrived early evening on Sunday after 24 hours in the air from the UK. Really looking forward to a lovely shower and a comfortable bed. Ticked both boxes. The room was compact, well equipped and spotlessly clean. If we were staying longer than one night I think I would have preferred a larger room. Very convenient for shops and restaurants... More

Having never stayed in this type of accommodation we were apprehensive but on arrival was very pleased with our choice. Warm welcome from the owners who asked us our plans and booked our taxi straight away for the next day as we were catching the Trans Alpine train. Ground floor room had everything we needed for our one night stay... More

Large, clean, quiet room. Bathroom window to crack open for ventilation which is always a plus! Five minutes walk from the Riccarton shops and 20 minutes walk from Christchurch Station. Very friendly and helpful staff. Will definitely stay here again.

Very friendly and helpful owners, spotlessly clean and very convenient location close to large shopping mall and plenty of restaurants. This was a great base for our 2 night stay investigating tertiary study options in Christchurch.

For us didn't quite live up to our expectations! Accom clean and cosy, hosts very helpful with advise, but kept checking if we'd left the door open as very noisy, and when inconsiderate neighbours came home at 2-2.30 well that's the end of a descent nights sleep!!!

Hi Tracy, great to hear that we met your expectation with cleanliness, cosiness and the advise we offered you. We are so disappointed to hear you had a disturbed night's sleep due to others' inconsideration. Had we known we would have happily intervened on your behalf. More

It is really so good when you arrive in from Sydney, late evening, to find such a warm, comfortable and welcoming motel. Only stumbled across this gem because of my appointment locations, but I won't be staying in any of the Christchurch CBD hotels again, because this is just perfect and really very reasonable. The one thing one hates when... More
