I've stayed at the Roma on many occasons over the last few yearas, whilst working in Christchurch and also while away socially. I had various options of where I could stay, but because of the friendliness of Garry and Yvonne and the quality of the facilities I would always return to the Roma. The rooms are well set up and...

Stayed for one night while visiting Christchurch. We would have stayed for two but no vacancy so we stayed next door at the Annabel Court (also reviewed). The owners were very friendly and helpful. We had a ground floor studio with a small kitchenette and was perfect for our needs. Very clean. Internet worked well. Quiet even though located on... More

We stayed in room 7, a 1 bedroom unit. The hosts were very helpful and friendly and the room clean. We were a bit disappointed at the small unit. 1 x 2 seater couch for 3 of us and a table with 2 dining room chairs. No outisde balcony or courtyard. The biggest problem we had a not enough hot...

We stayed in room no. 10 at 1/F with 2 bedrooms for 5 people. The room size was good enough and the heater worked well. However, there was no ventilation fan in the bathroom that made no fresh air during shower. The smoke detector at the ceiling was nearly fell down and one of the lightings in the living room...

Nice spa baths & well equipped kitchenettes if you want to grab takeaways sometimes. Its also within walking distance to cafes and bottle shops... More

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.
