A planned trip was stopped by big snow. Stayed at city centre motel for 2 nights unplanned. Although, it's -5 outside but our room is cosy and warm. The girl at reception helped us for somewhere to eat and to do around town. Great service! Will stay again next time in town.

We stayed here for one night and that was about as much as we could enjoy. Our room was a 2 bed and family room but there was only 1 very small heater in the lounge. The bedrooms had no heater only electric blankets on the bed. When the temp is getting down to -3 at night, is -1 at... More

Three nights here. I was very impressed with this motel and the hotelier. I had a studio room, ground floor, with little kitchenette and a jet bath. The room, the towels and the linen were all spotlessly clean and I even wondered whether some items were brand new. But most importantly, due to severe flight delays, I could not arrive... More

I stayed here with my cousin as a part of our road trip around the South Island, and we decided to spend two nights in Christchurch to really have a good look around. This motel had an awesome location (5min walk into the main centre) which made exploring without a car super handy (was a bit difficult navigating by car... More

This was a relatively standard motel however the location was good - an easy walk to the park the arts centre etc - and the staff were very nice. It was quiet and clean. The wifi in the room worked (doesn't always in motels !) They gave us a slightly later check out time when we asked without this being... More

We stayed a few nights at this motel and enjoyed every moment. The room was pretty basic, but clean and comfortable. The price was good and we enjoyed the host very much. He was very helpful and full of suggestions. Loved getting to meet his new kitten as well. The location was great and we loved having breakfast at the... More

This was the stereotypical "motel" like Motel 6. The furniture is old and the only heater is in the living room so the beds have electric blankets to keep you warm. They leave the windows open for fresh air so beware of spiders. We were only staying for one night and got up early to leave for the airport so... More

Having lived in Christchurch, I know there are some areas with a lot of noisy traffic at night. The City Centre Motel is set off a main street and has plenty of landscaping to soften any traffic noise. It was very quiet and comfortable. The windows were not double glazed and the temperature fell to below freezing but we were... More

Stayed here on a business trip. Was very comfortable (bed fabulous) and the room warm. Pleasant reception staff who ordered a taxi on time for the next day. Was very handy to the city. Had a meal up the road at Strawberry Fare(Divine!!!) Continental breakfast the next day was adequate and nicely presented.
