Rooms are exceptionally appointed, clean and comfortable. The host is excellent. I awoke to a frost free windscreen, and clear driver, passenger windows and mirrors. A fantastic touch to a very pleasant stay. The room was very warm, there is ample internet access and the shower was great. I have been searching for a regular motel for my monthly visits... More

Due to our late flight schedule from Sydney, we arrived at the hotel well past midnight. Office was expectedly closed by then. However there was clear information left at the office with... More

I stayed 2 nights here on a conference and it was a fantastic rate, my room was very clean to my high expectations. The room was quiet with no road noise, it had its own heat pump so was nice and warm. Would recommend this hotel to anyone and would definitely stay again.

Very good for a brief stay in Christchurch - it is an upscale motel with modern and clean rooms. Although it is not in the center of town, it is within walking distance or a short drive to restaurants and bars.
