I had to find last minute accommodation for a business trip and the Avon City Motel was booked on short notice. They went out of their way to accommodate me even when my plane was delayed for 3 hours and I arrived at 3:30 in the morning. The unit was spotless clean and I had a great sleep. Val was... More

Thank you very much for your positive review, Doug. We think that it is important to make people feel welcome on arrival even when it is 3.30am and no-one is up to greet them. Leaving a welcoming note on the unit door, having a light on in the unit as well as a heater or electric blanket on if necessary... More

This was a last minute booking which turned out to be perfect for attending a wedding nearby. The unit was spotlessly clean with a fully equipped kitchenette, plenty of tea and coffee on hand and fresh milk, and a heater for guests from warmer climates, and a beautiful garden. Strange that hotel booking websites had this motel full on the... More

Nice people and very helpful. Woke me up for an early morning trip to the airport. Good knowledge of Christchurch and the South Island in general. The room was very clean and modern with new appliances and flat screen tv. I would stay there again.

Stayed two nights for a family occassion. Very clean and tidy and very well appointed motel unit. Having Sky TV was a bonus. Alot of work has gone into the beautiful and colourful gardens. Helpful manager with good local knowledge. Would recommend.

This would be classed as the worst I have ever stayed in. You can have dated but clean. The shower was dirty, the rubbish tin looked like it hasn't been cleaned in years and the carpet was close to thread bare. The toilet seemed as if it hadn't been cleaned but as there are problems in Christchurch at the moment... More

We stayed here for 3 nights in October 2011. It was very clean, spacious room, clean kitchen, but very small bathroom. But the outstanding standard of cleanliness made up for it. Although on the mainroad, double glazing made it very quiet. Friendly helpful manager. Highly recommended.
