Owners/managers were so friendly, such nice people. Our room was very clean and tidy. A large room with a very comfy bed. Guest laundry is fantastic, unfortunately I did not find it until I was leaving, not their fault, I didn't look, I simply didn't think they would have one. Free wifi, which was very good. I would definitely stay... More

Excellent location in Riccarton Area. Easy to get to everywhere. Friendly owners and great service. One bedroom unit has excellent size and easily accommodated our family of three, without being on top of each other. It was an extremely cold weekend in Christchurch and the rooms were well heated so was nice in the weather. Would definitely stay again -... More

The room was generous in space and really well thought out. It was a nice touch after a day out in the cold to come back and find the heater on and curtains pulled and the room lovely and warm. We are repeat customers and we will definitely be back.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom unit with our adult son. The owners are very nice, they had turned on the heaters before we arrived so the room was warm to walk in to. Both bedrooms were a good size, and the living area worked well. The bathroom was well appointed with a great shower. The motel is conveniently located... More

Value for money. Warm rooms(it was cold outside) and friendly owner who was very accomadating. The rooms were a little small to our liking but it was okay. Nice place to stay if you are on a budget. You will find nando's opposite to the hotel and subway is at walking distance.

Our room had an inexplicable amount of windows facing the parking lot including a sliding glass door. Fine for one night, but it would have been a bit too open for a longer stay. Thankfully we have eye masks and earplugs. The room itself was rather large with a small kitchenette and seating area on one side, a comfortable bed... More

Enjoyed our 2 night stay here last weekend. Room was lovely and warm when we arrived, very clean, kitchenette had all we needed to make breakfast, loads of restaurants within easy walking distance (can recommend Dux Dine right next door and Buddha Stix just down the road). Didn’t end up using the spa bath – the shower was so great... More

We stayed one night in a two bedroom apartment with spa, the room is immaculate and super clean, perfect for our family. The owner is very helpful to ell us the good place to eat within five minutes walking distance and just 20 minutes to the city by foot. We would certainly stay here again and recommend to my friends.

Family of five slept comfortably in this motel. 2 bed apartment. We only had one issue and that was hot water, unfortunately it was short showers but so it should be. (This issue was identified by management so no surprises) We had great correspondence with management which lead to an easy reception at the motel upon our arrival around midnight... More

We stayed here (5 of us) for 2 nights. Very neat nice clean units and centrally based. The unit was exactly what we were looking for. The units are Italian styled (think), nice little kitchenette and bathroom was spacious. All electrics worked well including the TV. Across the road (a main road) is a garage and quite a nice looking... More
