Terra Vive was the highlight of our christchurch trip, didn't like the city as much if you compare it to the other beautiful cities of New Zealand. Free parking, big room with a small balcony in the back, free wifi, washing machine & dryer, spa bath and a very helpful owner....couldn't ask for more... Walkable distance to city center, with...

Extremely impressed with our stay at Terra Vive. The modern rooms had all that you require for a comfortable and enjoyable stay from the luxurious spa bath to the high quality kitchen and laundry appliances. The hotel owners went above and beyond to accommodate us during our stay which really enhanced our time here. Would definitely return to Terra Vive.

Cons: No Safe No where to put luggage except on the floor Two clothes hangers only and tiny closet Great shower but no curtain therefore water went all... More

Terre Vive Luxury Suites is right in the heart of Christchurch NZ. Walking distance to the lovely parks and attractions. Comfortable, clean, has everything including full kitchen and in room laundry. Parking free on site. Much better than a highrise hotel.

We stayed here for 2 nights and they were extremely comfortable. The rooms are plush with modern amenities. The owner greeted us very politely and checked us in with some goodies. He was extremely helpful and also recommended restaurants to us. I would highly recommend this motel as its also centrally located. Didn't use the washing machine and the dryer... More

We received a most wonderful welcome and shown to a large, fully-equipped room. Every possible facility was in the room and well laid out. We were presented with complimentary essential supplies and left to relax in peace. We stayed two nights and would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this very centrally placed motel to everyone. You'd find it hard... More

The Terra Vive Luxury Suites are located a short drive from Christchurch's city centre and about 20 minutes drive from the airport. The welcome was pleasant and accommodating with a few treats on offer. The rooms are very new and decently large with studio bed and living with TV, a bathroom (mine had a spa) and kitchenette. Though the best... More

I found this place a few years back and I keep going back. The apartments are very comfortable and it is just like being at home with the separate lounge room and big screen TV Only minutes from the heart of Christchurch and only a minute walk to a great little Thai place to eat !! Am heading back in... More

Excellent stay in Chistchurch, nice clean and modern rooms. Can be noisey during peak traffic times but did not cause any sleep issues. Awesome having a washing machine and dryer in the room. The baths are very deep so I would imagine older people would have an issue getting in and out of the shower which was over spa bath... More

We arrived after a fairly gruelling 30 hours of flying, and were delighted with this well equipped, clean, modern accommodation. Brian was most helpful and informative. Just a shame we only had the one night there. Within walking distance of the city centre and plenty of other amenities.
