The reviews on here had me seriously worried and prepared to cancel and go elsewhere, however when I checked the reviews on booking.com they were much better. So with trepidation I headed for the Motel. It was actually just really nice, the lady on reception was so helpful and sweet, the sofa in the room was nice, the bed spotlessly... More

Not recommend. Very dated facility and smelly room , the cups were stuck to the cupboard. We booked 2room , one room was run out of hot water after one person shower. And have to move to another room at mid of night for shower . The stupid taps for hot water and cold water are seperate, so you can... More

We booked on line on our way into town, fearing difficulty finding a place on Friday. Sometimes you can judge a book by its cover. We just paid exactly the same price for a 4 star motel in Dunedin and were expecting much more for the money. This place is a dump. Windows don't close, it's unclean, and not worth... More

My children and I stayed here for a night, while it was cheap, the cleanliness was rather poor, I found a chicken bag with bones and half eaten chicken in my freezer and my shower was not clean. I went to reception to let them know the lady was nice and came and cleaned it after I had told her... More

They lost our booking which we sorted months in advance. We arrived around midnight from a flight directly from Brisbane to a dark, cold locked up hotel. With no one answering the phone, assistance bell or our calls for help. We eventually had to sleep in the Airport! !!!! with my 58yr old mother. What a terrible start to our... More

I stayed here for a short weekend getaway. The staff were friendly and helpful. The motel room was spacious. While it had everything you would need, it was a little dated and in need of refurbishment. If you're able to get this motel a little cheaper than the going rate, the it's a good choice and would be adequate for... More

The motel is close to the city. Somehow it escaped the earthquake because other accommodation not too far away was not so lucky. Furnishings are dated but the unit was clean. WIFI was good. Owners helpful and friendly. Can't complain. Cheap and cheerful, you get what you pay for!

What a shambles - this place is! It's that far back stuck in a time warp you could almost hear the tones of Vera Lynn echoing around place! I've given this place (I use the word place as the word hotel/motel would be incorrect) a one star rating simply because trip advisor doesn't let you tick zero! If your idea... More

Yes fair enough this was a last resort for us as we did not plan on staying in Christchurch, but please...... staying here was like stepping into a time warp! It was very dated oh I would say the 1950's, holes in wall, sliding door into bedroom did not fit door frame, taps dont work, thread bare carpet. Only one... More
