Good place to stay for a quick visit to Christchurch. We were a family of 5 in a 2 bedroom apartment, but it did feel a bit cramped and the wardrobes are tiny. Welcoming host. Complimentary snack basket went down very well with teenage son. Excellent shower and bath / wash products.

My husband and I travel to New Zealand every February. Our first time through Christchurch we stayed in the Terra Vive. We loved it. It's very clean and a great location to walk to everything, but quiet. We had a washer and dryer in our room, so we time on our trip to be in Christchurch on laundry day. The... More

The room is nice, with a comfy bed and the bathroom has a spa bath with shower overhead. The heating in the room works really well - this does result in condensation on the doors and windows, but that is really no big deal. However the hosts are fantastic, even bringing out a watering can of water to deice the... More

Stayed here one night, before driving to airport (which the apartments are convenient for). Our Apartment was clean, modern, quiet and very well presented. Was around a 15 minute walk into the bar/restaurant area of Christchurch - although being a Sunday afternoon there were quite a few places closed (The Casino was the only place I could find showing the...

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
