Stayed here for one night before catching the train to Greymouth. Great location for my little person who loves all forms of transport. Bus from airport to motel, and close to train station the next morning. Very comfortable room. Everything you could need for a short or long stay. Only slight downside is a lack of restaurants within easy walking... More

Fantastic Accommodation for a Motel – very up market, Yvonne and Gary great hosts – location in Riccarton close to major shops (Westfield) – only 10 minutes from City – close to Hagley Park. Free Wifi and Free use of Gym – just across the road. My favourite 2 minutes to KFC.

At reception we were greeted by a delightful receptionist she was most helpful in pointing out the locations of the cafes and restaurants in this popular area.Roma is one of a number of motels close to Hagley park and the Riccarton mall is just 1 Km.up the road. We stayed in unit 4 which is a two bedroom unit though... More

We came to New Zealand for a holiday, found this motel conveniently located and close to everything that we needed. The room was spacious, very clean and comfortable. The staff were friendly and happy to help. The price was reasonable and we would definitely stay again and recommend to our family and friends.

After travelling round New Zealand for 2 weeks, we came to our final desination, Christchurch. We found the owners delighful, the room clean and comfortable. 3 ply toilet tissue wins hands down in my books.

Stupidly Left an IPad in the room,realised an hour later and called straight away.Even though just a small unit and motel,they said there was no sign of it. Not very good for "executive" accommodation,esp seeing as I called within an hour of checking out. They told me to use find my iPad,cheers Roma.

This is one of a whole string of Motels along the Riccarton road, going west out of Christchurch. It is very conveniently located with plenty of local cafe's & restaurants within walking distance. Good, clean rooms with plenty of space & a reasonable price. Would definitely use this motel again.

Stayed for the night. At the northern end of Riccarton Road and handy to cafes and restaurants. Very nice rooms and quality at a reasonable price. Courtyards are private and being north facing it gets the late sun. A great spot for pre-dinner drinks.

We booked this room as our first stop from the airport. We chose the location so we could walk into town but be near the major roads out of the city. The rooms were quiet, roomy and comfortable. The owners very helpful. We would stay here again.
