Really good motel, highest standard of motel accommodation I've been to. Good location for the airport, the city and to get out into the surrounding areas. Plenty of eateries nearby, loved Café Sismo across the road for breakfast. The apartment was well serviced daily and Ping, the owner, was always on hand and friendly and helpful. Would certainly recommend anyone... More

The host was friendly. We stayed in room 3, the corner room, and it was great. The room was very clean and well-equipped. The bed was comfortable and covered with a beautiful floral bedsheet. Love the essential oil shampoo n soap! It smelt awesome and very relaxing to have a warm bathe after driving for so long. Its spacious enough... More

Perfect location for anywhere in the city. Lovely clean modern motel next to a lovely cafe (Dux dine). Great hosts and excellent place to stay. Off street parking, easy walk to park and perfect place to stay if going to an event at the AMI stadium.

My wife and daughter and I recently stayed here and thoroughly enjoyed the facility. Very well equipped with very comfortable furnishings. The bed was perhaps nearing the time for replacement but still perfectly comfortable. Reception assistance was first rate. Excellent central location.

We flew into Christchurch and wanted to stay within 20 minutes of the airport but also close to the city centre. We found the ideal solution at Lorenzo. We finished up staying twice over a four week period three nights at the start of our holiday and one night on the return. The room was ideal - very clean, well... More

Great location, spotless, well-equipped rooms and walking distance to eating places, Botanical Gardens and the city centre. A perfect base for our visit to Christchurch. Ping was particularly helpful and was happy to look after some of our luggage while we were touring New Zealand until returning to the Lorenzo at the end of our travels.

Ping was lovely and helpful but the motel did not live up to expectations ...the room was clean but very dated and I could hear traffic noise as the road it's on is the busiest of any I've seen in New Zealand..we found it difficult and scary trying to cross the road...it is also very close to the rail line...

We first stayed here two years ago when visiting Christchurch and elected to do so again this time. There are new owners. They have maintained and improved service by attention to the details such as free daily newspaper and the addition of a mini bar. There are plenty of restaurants close by. We discovered a new Korean and a new... More
