This is a great value for money motel and exactly what we were looking for - clean, neat, tidy and pretty sharp looking for a motel! Rooms were serviced daily, great bedding and service was excellent - we had a noisy room above us our first night and when we reported it to management, they took action on the same... More

This property is just minutes from the train station by shuttle and cost was $15 for two for the ride. The one bedroom suite is small but clean, cozy and comfortable. Towel warmer and bed warmer were nice as it was cold and rainy. Coffee, tea and hot chocolate in room. Front desk staff nice. Small button on desk is... More

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
