From the moment I opened the door, it was like entering an expensive and lavish hotel suite with the bonus of a great kitchen. Everything from the 50” Plasma television to the bath soap is luxury personified. Compared to the supposed but disappointing 5 star Salerno Motel across the street, Terra Vive is extraordinary. The apartments are spacious and private.... More

Nice sized room that was well appointed with quality fixtures. It was clean, quiet and reasonable value for money. Small kitchenette, including a clothes washer and dryer. The location was great, within walking distance several wonderful restaurants (Venuti, Himalaya and Speight Ale House) and the Southern Cross Hospital. Having stayed in several motels and hotels in this area of Christchurch... More

Our family spent 2 nights at this nice motel in Christchurch. The gentleman at the front desk was very kind and helpful. He check us into a clean, spacious 1 bedroom suite with a sofa bed, kitchen and a good sized bathroom. Internet was fast and FREE. Unfortunately, the city of Christchurch still hasn't fully recovered from the awful earthquake... More

Poor Christchurch! I assumed city center would be a bit more built up by now since the earthquake, but not really. This is obviously a newer hotel which has been built since the earthquake and quite nice. It had a nice, cozy room and great little kitchenette. The location was perfect since it was near city center and easy to... More

We stayed here for two nights in a one bedroom apartment. The apartment had everything we needed with a few nice touches like washing powder for the in room laundry facilities and a welcome basket of snacks. The bathroom and bedroom were nicely done and after three weeks of living out of hotel rooms it was good to relax and... More

We enjoyed a lovely weekend in Christchurch over Easter and stayed at Terra Vive in a 2 person unit for three nights. The room and bathroom were very clean, modern and comfortable (comfy bed). The highlight being a lovely spa bath which was a fairly standard size but could easily accommodate 2 people. Overall the stay was hassle free. We... More

We stayed for two nights at the Terra Vive and found it very comfortable. The owner was friendly and informative. The in room laundry was really appreciated and was made full use of. The room itself was comfortable and cosy, you could watch tv from either the bed or settee. We borrowed a DVD player & DVD's from the reception... More

I only stayed here for one night but was very impressed. Check in was smooth and and woman that assisted me was very helpful. She brought me up to the room and it was actually quite large - probably bigger than my apartment in NYC. There was a large king bed, sofa, desk and tv in the main part then... More

I had asked my travel agent to book me a serviced apartment so was initially a bit furious when I arrived to find motel accommodation even though it was very nice. But that not being the fault of the apartment owner they still did their best to help out. We had planned to break our travel in Chch for 5... More

Loved the location; loved the in suite laundry; small refrigerator and microwave, and that's the extent of the cooking facilities. It was enough for us since we were only here 2 nights. Big jacuzzi tub and shower; challenge for anyone mobility challenged. Loved the free wifi; hated the sofa (just not that comfortable); We were on the 2nd floor; no... More
