This has to be one of the nicest places we have stayed. The room was a nice size and everything was sparkling clean. There was a large wardrobe which would be handy to use if staying for more than a night. Even though it is on Riccarton Road, we never heard any traffic noise compared to other places on the... More

We stayed here twice whilst on holiday in May of this year. We received a warm welcome on both occasions. The rooms were spotless and modern.

We stayed here just overnight on transit and chose the location as it's only 2-3 minutes walk down the road to the Westfield Mall for shopping. The owner went out of his way to attend to our every need. I don't think I've had the owner of a hotel or motel shake my hand upon checking in - very friendly!... More
