It was a very nice walk into the city centre from the motel saving some hassle. It also had lots of eating options around. Room was excellent as was the wi-fi. Staff very friendly and helpful. Overall good value for money

We stayed here for two night before and after our trip around the South Island. We had two different rooms, a bit different also in size. Both were very well equipped for making basic food and hot drinks. The beds were comfortable although the king size bed may be a bit too small for two older adults. The managers were... More

Lorenzo Motor Lodge is 2 blocks from Hagley Park so it is in walking distance of the city center, restart, the Avon River, Botanical Garden and the museum in one direction and Westfield Mall in the other. Our room had comfortable attractive bedding, large screen tv, kitchenette, free wifi, and lovely toiletries. Even though Riccardon Road is a major thoroughfare... More

We spent three nights here. The room was very well equipped. The location was good for getting into the city and local eateries. Ping was a lovely host. The bust stop was nearby. A large supermarket was in walking distance.

We had a very short stay at Lorenzo Motor Lodge, but they were super helpful. We were arriving after 1am, and had to meet a group at the train station at 7:30am the next morning. They left a key under the mat, left some milk for coffee in the morning and arranged a taxi. They confirmed via email, and quickly... More

Philo and Ping were so friendly and helpful. Comfortable rooms. Reasonable price. Within walking distance of the botanical gardens and restaurants. We would certainly stay at the Lorenzo Motor Lodge again.

I'm a regular guest here and wouldn't stay anywhere else. Very clean and great rooms with exceptional service. I even recall one day in winter during a big frost our host was out defrosting the car for us. There are a great selection of restaurants within easy walking distance as well. Always a pleasure to stay.
