We stay in approximately 30 Motels in New Zealand a year. Always 2 bedroom. Due to the rebuild, Christchurch is a shocker to find accommodation at any time. We booked this place from a guide which their advertisement stated LUXURY. This unit was $245.00 per night which is up there but that's CHCH at the moment. The staff were very... More

I have been there for holiday with my family. I chose this motel for convenient. It's near mall and restaurants. I took a two bedrooms' room, it is really clean and great for family. Overall it's in good service.

We had not stayed here previously, but were impressed from the moment that we checked in and were immediately assisted to our rooms with the luggage. The rooms were quite luxurious, and extremely quiet, and the beds were a delight to sleep in. All equipment worked faultlessly, and to top it off there were numerous restaurants within easy walking distance.... More

stayed with a friend for 3 nights...nice location,clean rooms, free wifi, free parking, helpful staff. remember only main door can be locked - the bedrooms and the bathroom can't be locked. late check in possible, they leave keys in a box near the door. late check outs are difficult and still chargeable (50 NZD dollars).

Just like to drop a short note to say a big thank you to the reception staff for helping us make a late 2pm entry. We've stayed a couple of times at this motel on our way up to Nelson and have always found it to be very clean , well presented and well run. Other attributes are that it... More

As I was on a work trip and it being my first time in the country I felt happy when the staff introduced themselves and carried my bags to the room. Each day I had a newspaper delivered and my room left spotless when I arrived back after work. Great size kitchenette and huge spa bath obviously it was just... More

From the internet banter I was expecting something very special. We ordered the room with the spa bath and with our gear and the two of us we were very crammed. Very disappointing I wouldnt stay there again. The room is so small. The toilet is to close to the bed

We arrived on a very wet Saturday with a new motorbike and we were so well looked after by the managers. Really lovely, friendly people. Room was clean and nice. Good location for access on foot to shops etc.

If you need bang for buck don't stop here, now that's the down side. I had the one bedroom unit with spa bath, shower and cooking facilities.
