They drove us to the car rental place and to the airport at 4am! I left my iPod and they sent it back to me in Scotland with a... More

The unit was spacious and had everything we needed to be able to cook a meal. The Hosts were very friendly and welcoming. Very central location and easy... More

Stayed 1 night upon arrival at Christchurch. The place is old but the owners really know how to maintain the place. We stayed at a 1 bedroom apartment. It is very clean and has the basic necessities. Full kitchen with kitchen utensils. The owners were friendly and kind to share places to go like supermarkets and halal restaurants. Although we... More

I don't write many reviews but the Admiral Motel is noteworthy. Absolutely great value for money: clean, spacious, quiet, convenient location AND the best hosts. We had a couple of random questions about the town and Rick came back to us shortly with all the answers. He had called about and found exactly what we needed. Highly recommend the Admiral... More

The staff at Admiral Motel were extremely helpful with info on where to eat, what to see, where to go in the South Island, the room was very clean and well equiped, the free wi-fi was more than enough, we gave this motel an 11/10.

Fantastic stay in this motel. Had a two room apartment which was classy without being over the top. Real good value for money. Well kept and maintained and excellent helpful service. Don't be put of by the location or the view from outside go in and check it out.

We stayed with Rick and Ricky and the service and welcome we received were the best we had in New Zealand. The motel is in a great location, just a 20 minute walk to the City Centre and two minute walk to a really good pub for food. The owners make sure you get a real New Zealand welcome and... More
