This motel is well located for visiting the city and driving out to beaches such as New Brighton & Sumner. Old school motel but has everything you need. If you are looking for good, clean reasonably priced accommodation in Christchurch you can't go past Arcadia.

We have been staying at Arcadia over the last 6 years, 8 trips and twice each trip - as we fly in and out of Christchurch from Tasmania, Australia. We ride a couple of motorbikes around NZ and need a couple of days at the start and end of our trips - we really feel luck to have found Arcadia... More

We stayed just one night, but we're very happy to get a room here. There was a double bed plus a single and, most importantly, two large recliners-- perfect for TV or reading. There is a kitchenette with a small refrigerator, microwave and old but functioning two burner cooktop. Beds were comfortable, shower had good pressure and hot water. The... More

I loved this host, he was funny. Bagging about how wonderful NZ is compared to Australia. In a funny way. We loved his humor. Told that there are places in NZ that no longer have just one fuel station and a garage. They have TWO! He helped us plan our trip. Showed us the effective way to do things. Pointed... More

Room was clean and very spacious. There was plenty of room to relax comfortably in and it had a couple of leather reclining chairs - ideal after a days sight seeing! It had a small kitchenette for self catering which we didn't make use of other than to make tea and coffee. No problems with any outside noise and the... More

Nice open space and pleasant and great value for money. Laundry facilities at low cost available too. Fantastic hospitality from Michelle who was so helpful and obliging... More
