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

Spotlessly clean in a good central location. Although on a busy road this didn't affect our sleep. We stayed in a one bedroom suite. This is really a partitioned off area with a wooden blind that came down.

The Motel is located near the Park. There are Restaurants and shopping facilities in the neighborhood. Rooms are nice and clean, Beds are comfy. We had a room on the 1st floor and had a nice small patio where we could enjoy the evenings. If you stay in Christchurch, try this Motel.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom upstairs- clean,spacious n cozy. It is equipped with some basic kitchen utensils n stove where we can do some simple cooking. There is no attached bathroom but we shared a spacious bathroom with a big bath tub. Toiletries are provided. The motel is strategically located near food outlets, KFC, a supermarket n a church....

We stayed in Lorenzo Motor Lodge for two nights in Summer. The motel is excellent in three dimensions: (1) the rooms are completely clean (incl. the bathrooms - great with the tub) and at the same time very comfortably decorated for a motel (2) the location is very conveniently - right next to it is the famous Dix Dine and...

We stayed from 25.11.2014 to 27.11.2014. Ping was very helpful in everyway, I noticed that she was always out helping the guest that were staying there. Even to the gardens, which were well maintained. The Hotel room was wonderful. The spa in the bathroom was wonderful very relaxing after a tiring plane flight. The room was very clean and decorated... More

This is an excellent motel. Very clean and comfortable. Centrally located. Most of all the staff were very thoughtful and considerate -- we really appreciated this after a long campervan trip with two young children. Thank you very much.

Great location close to Hagley Park, city and University although it is located on a very busy road so next time I would request a quieter room. Friday night/early morning there was a lot of street noise from drunks stumbling around on the street and talking loudly. Room was comfortable, clean and well appointed, however the wifi internet was extremely... More

Before booking with Lorenzo I called to check about the location of the available room, and when we arrived, we were given the quietest possible room. I had checked the reviews about the noise level, but only one review mentioned the location on a busy road - but I need not be concerned!! The windows were double-glazed (I think) and... More

Very good bathroom amenities and very adequate cutlery, crockery,microwave, sandwich press and coffee plunger. As well as a good amount of tea and coffee bags, and hot chocolate. Milk is also provided, as is free WiFi. I am... More
