We stayed here after a short flight from Sydney. Roma is a great little place to stay. We had a studio room and the owner was great and set us breakfast up for the next day. A very central location and a very short drive to the airport from here (less than 30 mins). Westfield shopping centre is 5 mins... More

From the moment we arrived to a very warm welcome to when we checked out we really enjoyed our long weekend stay in this motel. It is modern, clean and inviting. Very handy location being just a few minutes drive or bus ride to the central city and easy walking distance to cafes, restaurants and the huge Riccarton Mall. While... More

This motel is as good as it gets. The location is within walking distance of numerous dining spots and Westfield Riccarton. The manager is the owner, who lives onsite, and with 12 units to manage, service takes on a personal touch. The rubbish bin in our room was not emptied from the previous guests. I mentioned this to the manager... More

Fantastic. Don't consider searching for anywhere else From the moment you check you know this is a great motel. The rooms are immaculately clean with what seems to be new fittings. The bed and the bed lines are excellent and the kitchen facilities all you need in a motel. The spa bath in our room was a real bonus especially... More

From first contact Mark was obliging about my check in time. The room was spotless, shower and bed were fantastic and the place is pretty close to everything I needed. Mark & Lynne are courteous friendly hosts. I wish them all the success for their business. Sorry bout the plant pot guys.

I shared a twin room suite with my sister and we both thought the place was very nice. The hosts were very good. The room was nice and quiet and yet really close to everything we needed. No real view from the room ( Suite 10) but the overall standard was good

It was the second time I stayed at Roma on Riccarton. It is clean, modern, has free wifi and is in a central position. There is a new management and they were as friendly and helpful as the former management.

Spent 2 nights here with my daughter before and after doing the Tranzalpine. The new owners, Mark and his wife, were lovely and couldn't have been more helpful, even giving us a lift to the train station the first morning which was much appreciated. Both rooms we had were very clean and comfortable and we slept very well. For our... More

We stayed here on our first night in New Zealand. Needed somewhere near the airport to get a good nights sleep. The room was basic but clean with kitchen facilities. Staff helpful and friendly. Easy walk into town. Shops and places to eat all around.
