Very comfortable and quiet considering it is on a busy arterial route in an out of the city. Clean and well serviced, with shower over a spa bath.

Our studio room was located at the back of the property, it was very clean and quiet. I understand the motel has recently come under new ownership. Our room was large and spacious with a super king sized bed. (very comfortable)

We are very glad you enjoyed your stay and found the motel to be comfortable. All our rooms are double glazed which limits any road noise in all units and has proved to be very effective with many guests commenting on how quiet it is despite being on a main road. We do find though, that the traffic dies down... More

We stayed two nights in this motel on our way to Australia and when we loved it so much we cancelled our booking with the motel near the airport and booked this one again. It is such a handy location just along the road from the Riccarton Mall but our room was so quiet! It was back from the road... More

We stayed for four nights at the Fyffe in a spa room. Clean & tidy in a good location and the manager was friendly and accommodating. The rooms at the rear of the property are a bit quieter. We would stay again.

Not far from the airport and close to the cricket grounds. Very good location. Clean and fit for purpose. Self catering accommodation set out like a studio flat. Twin bedroom with en suite bathroom and a kitchenette area. I liked it.
