My husband and I stayed a night in a studio unit at this motel. The room had a full kitchen, bathroom/toilet, bedroom/lounge, table + chairs, couch, TV, etc. Free WiFi. The thing that impressed me most was the clean and well presented room. Owner was helpful with local knowledge. Thanks for enjoyable stay.

Booked this motel in last minute due to some changes on the plan. And luckily we stay here - The motel is clean and spacious. The host is very friendly and we enjoy the stay so much! I will come back next time when I visit CHCH!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Aalton Motel and would recommend this to everyone. The room was complete, with microwave, hot water kettle, fridge and kitchen sink 'n stuff to go with it. Dishes and cutlery are provided. There is a dairy store (convenience store) within a two minute walk and a full supermarket ten minutes' walk the other... More

This is my second time staying at Aalton Motel, and I could not have been more pleased with the service and superb cleanliness! Location was excellent too, near to the beautiful parks and a 15-20min walk to the hospital and city, and close to Riccarton mall and the many eateries along Riccarton road..spoilt for choice really. The rooms are kept... More

A very well located motel, both for City visits as well as easy access from the Intenational airport. various units are available, all in super condition and very well serviced on a daily basis. Parking spaces adjacent to each unit and ample eating opportunities in the immediate vicinity. The proprietors could not be more friendly, helpful and welcoming.

We've just stayed there for 1 night. It was a fabulous place to stay. Everything was neat, CLEAN and tidy. We had a 1 bedroom unit with an extra bed in the lounge if needed (which it wasn't). The separate kitchen was well stocked with cutlery and crockery etc. Location was terrific. Hagley Park only a small stroll across the... More

We stayed at the Aalton hotel in a 1 bedroom room, with an additional single bed in the lounge room. The rooms were lovely and spacious, and well set out. The kitchen was the best stocked kitchen we had in 6 weeks in New Zealand! It was very clean and comfortable, with a good sized dining table, and some sky... More

I would recommend this a great place to stay in Christchurch. Good location just across from Hagley Park and about 15 minute walk into the city. Plenty of restaurants and cafes in immediate area, as well as Westfield shopping centre about 10-15 minutes walk. Our motel unit was spacious and had full cooking facilities as well as good bathroom. Everything... More

Turned up cold,and unannounced. Ian the owner could not accommodate us on the night however went out of his way to assist us to find alternative available accommodation. Needless to say we returned the next day,originally to stay one night, but given changing circumstances ended up staying 4 nights. Apart from the friendly service and assistance offered to us, we...
