Pleasant little motel, very clean. Friendly management. Neat but not fancy or pretensious on the outside but the rooms were surprisingly large with a simple, pleasant ambience. Kitchen and equipment was adequate. A queen and a single in our room and room large enough for 3 guests if needed. Local cafes, pubs and shops good for day to day needs... More

Absolutely loved my stay at Arcadia Motels. The couple that run it were very friendly & knowledgeable of the Christchurch District. The rooms are very nice & comfortable, serviced everyday with clean towels etc etc. I would definitely stay there again & would recommend them to all my friends. The gardens & lawns are all very well looked after.

Stayed here for a second time. Great place to stay away from all the nouise and hustle of Christchurch. Handy to everything. Rooms are warm spacious comfortable and very clean. No traffic noise and great part of Christchurch City. Staff are very friendly, helpful and knowledgeable without being pushy.

We had a great experience with Arcadia.. Room was lovely & clean & smelt fresh. Our room was serviced everyday with clean towels etc. The couple that run the place were very friendly & accommodating.. We would have no hesitation in booking a room again 😀

We had an excellent stay here, the room was very clean and comfortable, and the motel is in an ideal location, just outside of Christchurch City centre, but still surrounded by plenty of shops, cafes/restaurants etc. Our hosts were very welcoming and incredibly helpful, we cannot thank them enough. The room was also very reasonably priced.

Stayed in a Bealey Ave motel for $180 a night for 1 night...put up with boy racers and no sleep...found this place on the internet and read the reviews from obviously a couple of people who could never be pleased....paid a fair price for a room that was clean warm (there was a -5 frost one of the nights!), comfortable...

Smell of mildew was overpowering, heating wasn't adequate, electric blanket didn't work & very much overpriced for old, damp but clean unit .Bed & pillows smelt of dampness. Wouldn't bother staying there again as better quality available in Ch-Ch. Give this one a miss is you value your health!

Friendly host who gave us some much needed local advice. We had a large studio room which was just right for us. Good value for money. It was very clean and the beds were great. I recommend it for people staying in the East of Christchurch.
