We stayed at the Lorenzo two weeks ago and it was just just great - our rooms were very clean and serviced each day. It was within walking distance of the botanical gardens and some of our lot walked or ran through the gardens which they said was very nice. Our hostess Ping was very warm and made us feel... More

We had an extended stay here during earthquake repairs to our property. It was very comfortable and all the staff were helpful. Extras such as extra cooker & saucepans, laundry, bike storage, mail collection were all 'no problem'. Recommended :) Hilary & Tom

Stayed in rm 12. On a busy road, but lovely outlook, convenient to bus, restaurants and shops. Felt safe. Spa appreciated. Clean and cosy. Everything you need: fridge, crockery, microwave. Ping went the extra mile by dropping me at the railway station 6.30 on Sunday morning. Lorenzo works.

Very clean. Well proportioned rooms. We had a spa bath!! Staff polite, kind and very efficient. Had reason to contact the Lorenzo about a week after departure and their response and assistance was most inspiring Good location if you have transport otherwise a bit far from city centre for anybody not up to a good walk!

This was our third stay at this motel which is convenienet for both the city and the airport.The first two time were last year, since when ownership has changed. The units are roomy and well fitted, and spotlessly clean. Service was not as friendly as last year but efficient.

Stayed here just for a night...exceeded expectations. Service and hospitality was excellent, so was the room....supplies in kitchen/bathroom were up to date. Our car was cleaned/wiped well on that frosty morning of end may. Really appreciate the service with a smile attitude of the staff.
