Me and my partner stayed here last weekend and it was really nice! Loved the service, everything was nice and clean! The room we were in had so much space! I'll stay in this motel again if I were to visit Christchurch again! Me and my partner were very happy with everything : )

Motels by their American name are different in New Zealand. There the term "motel" implies they have an additional microwave, perhaps a small gas stove, a refrigerator and the basics of an eat-in kitchen, meaning an assortment of utensils such as a pot or two and some plates and glasses. All amenities of a short stay. We were there to... More

This is the perfect spot for that getaway. Location is superb, and best thing is it is quiet. We didn't get woken up once by cars in the car park or on the road. Comfy bed, great bath, and roomy for a studio unit. The owner greeted us so warmly, it was welcoming and appreciated. Cleaning staff were brilliant. Highly... More

The staff were very helpful and organised 4am airport shuttle for my son. The off street parking was great, and it was only a short walk to the cbd and botanical gardens etc.... More

We stayed there in March 2014. It was first time in New Zealand. We are a family of 3 (a couple and 1 teenager). The place is very clean, spacious and very friendly. The location is quiet and a 15 to 20 minutes walk from the botanical gardens and the other attractions. The Cathedral and some central streets were still... More

Super friendly staff, extremely clean and comfortable and so close to the centre of Christchurch. The staff were so helpful, welcoming and obliging. The rooms have everything you need, they are spacious, clean and quiet. It is a leisurely (flat) 10 min walk to Cathedral square and the CBD. The motel is completely wheelchair accessible with great off street parking.... More
