We booked on price and location and were not disappointed. Christchurch CDB, which is down the road a bit is still in shambles, but this area is fine. Located near the Botanical Gardens and good restaurants. Clean room and comfortable bed, shady parking.

This is a wonderful motel ran by a Shanghai couple and we are from Shanghai as well, which makes us feel more like home. It's the first stop after we arrived New Zealand, my parents talked happily with the owner and the preparation of our late arrival is thoroughly and nice. Thank you very much

Convenient located within walking distance to restaurants and city attractions. Staff always willing to answer questions and provide useful information. Stayed in large 1 bedroom apartment with kitchenette, it has all we needed. Free internet and car parking.

Stayed for two nights. The room was clean and functional - not a lot of character. Unfortunately, there is not a lot of sound insulation between rooms and so we were woken during the night with one adjacent tenant throwing up and another family leaving for the airport about 4:00am. Options for breakfast on a Sunday morning are slim! However,... More

Hello rsf-brit and thank you for the review. Christchurch had a series of earthquakes that resulted in 80% of the CBD being demolished and while its taking a while to rebuild that doesn't mean that we are not in the city centre. Colombo St is the main street of the city. We are a great place to stay because you... More

We stayed in room 805 which was near the front of the site and close to reception. We were a bit worried about potential road noise but this wasn't an issue. In fact the only noise came from the people upstairs on our first night and the following morning who kept banging doors. When I mentioned this at reception on... More

There is a lot going for this little motel however a few things could have made it better. The rooms are clean and the beds comfortable. Furniture is pretty basic and the kitchenette is really for making tea or coffee. There is a good sized fridge. The staff gave us a couple of re mendacious for restaurants and the one... More

This was a quick overnight in Christchurch but a really clean and neat little motel, friendly service and central to the centre of Christchurch. Very clean and the outside areas were beautifully maintained too. Nice to hear the birds and even the cicadas in the trees. Bed was comfortable and bathroom clean with good hot water.

Since the earthquake of 2011, Christchurch is rebuilding. This centrally located motel is clean, affordable and close to the main downtown attractions of the Canterbury ?Museum and the Botanical Gardens as well as all of lovely Hagley Park. Kitchenettes in all rooms allows you to make a cup of coffee and have breakfast before starting your day of touring. Easy... More
