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

This would be one of the worst nights we have every had, the place was just dirty and run down, we went to use a knife in the draw and it had food on it, the glasses and cups we're dirty, the bed had stains on it including the sheets, the heater in the bathroom didn't go and looked like... 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.

Impressed with the clean, ironed sheets. Desperately in need of renovation. Staff very helpful. Free Wifi was okay when you could get it. handy to the city. We were amused by the plastic chairs and they should learn to leave more toilet paper.

We stayed in the family holiday house. Very neat and tidy. The rooms were generous in size, great wifi and the lounge room has a nice lounge and TV. The kitchen is well appointed. We had fresh towels everyday. We are staying here again. Very nice staff.

not much to recommend this place. Dated and barely equipped to cook a meal. The bathroom is a bit grungy and we made the mistake of lifting up one of the twin beds to make sure we hadn't forgotten anything and yuck, not sure if anyone had ever cleaned.

We (2 adults & 2 teens) stayed a night on arrival in Christchurch & found City Worcester Motel to be a quite acceptable place to stay for a short time, especially for the very cheap price charged. The rooms are quite old & dated, they aren't super big & roomy (especially with 4 of us in a two bedroom unit),... More

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
