Considering that we are a big group of travelers (4 adults and 2 children) and that we are not willing to stay at the backpackers, the budget of this motel suits us even though the rooms maybe small. For the 6 of us (one of is is only 2 years old), there are enough beds, although the mattress may not... More

We booked two small rooms for 6 people. Rooms: One of our room doors was facing the rubbish bins and this was a problem as it was warm in the summer and we wanted to open our doors and windows. Flies easily entered the room. That being said, the manager was understanding and allowed us to change rooms to a... More

We stayed at the City Worcester Motel at the beginning of the month for 2 nights. It was a nice little 1 bedroom suit which consisted of a bedroom with a king bed, a lounge room with a lounge and single bed, separate kitchen and separate bathroom. It was quite large. The kitchen did not have a lot of utensils... More

Had decided to leave queenstown one day earlier and so we drove down christchurch despite not booking any accomodation. Went online to look for some cheap ones as we only need to spend a night before we check into our next hotel. Found this place and booked it through expedia. Room is not huge but worth the money. Can accomodate... More

If you want a good clean cheap motel in the city then this is for you. The room I stayed in was quite small but had everything I needed including a full kitchen. After the Earthquake in Christchurch, motels and hotels are in short supply. (many hotels were destroyed) and so prices are expensive, but this was under $100 in... More

I'm here now and it's terrible. It is super old and need a refurbishment. We can here the reception people talking as we share a wall. The kitchen doesn't have much equipment to cook with. The bed is uncomfortable. And the shower....worst shower i have had for a long time. If you want only a trickle of water....this is your... More

I'm unable to review this motel in the usual way as we never actually got to stay there! We were let down at very short notice - literally as we we en route from Wellington. Cricket World Cup NZ Tour. I received an email (fortunately on my phone) as we prepared to travel to the City Worcester Motel (CWM), Christchurch... More

What a dump. The unit stunk of solvent. How could the owners put in a room that had just that day had new carpet glued to the floor. We both had really bad head aches. The whole complex was shabby. The only reason I gave it 1 button is that I couldnt give it less. What a shocking place.
