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.

Business trip 2 days....arrived Studio unit ready and clean. Same 1 I stayed in before, upstairs and at the rear helps with the road noise on Riccarton Rd.

Stayed in a two bedroom unit for one night only. The motel was conveniently located and the unit was clean. It was smaller than it appeared in the photos and the kitchen was basic - really nowhere to put anything if you wanted to be self-catering, it was hard enough to serve up our takeaways! The dining table had seating... More

When we arrived, we received a warm welcome. Our room was being refreshed - they were apologetic as they were putting in the final touches to a few things in the bathroom, which was fine by us. We rather that everything is working! The front desk was very friendly and helpful throughout our stay. We had a two bedroom, ground... More

Stayed at the Fyffe, however I think the Riccarton Street would have to be the noisiest street in Christchurch. Our room was facing the street, not on the street, about 15 metres back from the road, but people & traffic noise made it hard to get to sleep. Room was OK, shower was good. Wifi was free, but server reception... More

Hi, I am so sorry about the noisy road, we have double glazed the rooms close to the roads but still it is the most busy street in ChCh. If guests are very sensitive to noise generally when they book the rooms if they leave a comment we would arrange them to stay in one of the back units where... More

Stayed here for one night as was attending a wedding. Prior to stay asked if we could check in early, as check in time was 2pm and the wedding was at 2pm, so wanted to get changed before the event. Motel never responded and when we turned up the room wasn't ready early, so had to wait. Fortunately, not an... More

Very impressed with our stay at Fyffe on Riccarton a couple of weeks ago. Wasn't expecting much because it was one of the cheaper places, but was pleasantly surprised by a spacious, clean and modern room. Great bathroom with a clean spa bath, and excellent water pressure in the shower. Well equipped kitchen with new appliances. Very pleasant and drama... More
