Stayed overnight in this motel and quite honestly found the staff to be more than helpful, the rooms impeccably clean and tidy and the location excellent. We would not hesitate to recommend this establishment to everyone.

The motel is very clean and tidy. Kitchen is complete with oven, microwave, stove and fridge. Pots, pans and cutleries are all neatly kept in cabinets and all looks clean and tidy. We stayed for 2 nights and was pleasantly surprised that they serviced our room in between. Some eating places nearby though we didn't try. Overall we had a... More

We very much enjoyed our stay here. Well located with a nice walk through the gardens to the CBD. The room was well appointed with everything we needed and lots of little touches. Very clean. We would stay here again.

This is the best motel that I have ever lived. Location, equipment and staff are all outstanding. The staff helped me to book a taxi at 4 am and told me that the price was $34. I forgot to ask if it is a fixed price. When the taxi arrived, the driver used the meter and charged me $43 instead.

This is a sleepy little motel with just a few rooms...and lot of TripAdvisor certificates plastered on the wall of the shoe-box reception area. Fair enough, with all those certificates, it should be good. Not really. The firniture and bathroom is a bit tired, there could not be a smaller bar of soap in all of New Zealand. There is... More

A large, clean and well heated unit at an affordable price. The one bedroom unit suited our needs and our budget. We were made very welcome and enjoyed having a one bedroom unit with a bath. The kitchen is very well stocked with an oven as well as a microwave should you wish to cook. There are restaurants and a... More

Stayed here for four nights, rooms very clean and comfortable. Central for city and airport. Lovely walk through park to city. Ian was very helpful and gave us lots of information about the area and advised us what places to visit. Would definitely recommend staying here.

Like so many people we started our tour of South Island with a 2 night stopover in Christchurch - from there we were able to drive to Kaikoura for the whale watch during our only full day in this area. We had a lovely 2 bedroomed apartment and to be quite frank I could have cheerfully moved in there. It... More
