Not sure what's happening here. This time we were disappointed to find the unit with torn nets and three light bulbs blown. Also the variety of bulbs quite daunting for reading & business activities. Do suspect too that someone had been smoking in the unit. This is a pity because the units are modern with excellent fittings, hence our return... More

The Fyffe on Riccarton was the first top for our trip in New Zealand, and just shows that New Zealand people and hospitality is abundant, reminding us that this is such a wonderful country. One arrival, reception noticed that it was my 40th Birthday, and proceeded to upgrade our original booking at no cost or discussion - such a nice... More

I stayed here for one night recently and it was ok, just ok. The service was friendly (though checking out at 7.45am seemed like it was far too early for the manager who was still half asleep) however the room was average - had everything you needed but seemed worn, the net curtains had large rips in them, the bed...

Hi Sharnep, Thank you for staying with us and your valued comment. We are working on getting the net curtains replaced, they get borken as somtimes they get stuck in window when guests close them, they are custom made to size so it take a while to get them made and send to us. Sorry the manager seemed a bit... More

Fyffe Motor Lodge is a quiet, clean and simple place to stay. Everything works and is clean and tidy, with parking off the main road. Double glazing not only keeps heat in, but also road noise out. The staff are courteous and efficient.

Spent two nights here at the start of our trip to New Zealand.

Happy with this accommodation as our first night in NZ. Our room on the second storey was very clean & there was a friendly man on reception. Close to restaurants & Westfield shops are walking distance. Would recommend this to couples spending about $150 AUS.
