We got a ground floor room in the motel which was overall very clean, spacious and well done. We had a small patio as well which was great to enjoy the summer breakfast. Tony, the host, was very warm and welcoming. Would surely recommend the place to others and will visit again surely.

Stayed here one night when travelling to Christchurch on Uni studies. Great central location close to Uni of Canterbury campus. Clean room, relatively comfy furniture. No air con (but I come from a hot climate). Breakfast room service was prompt and tasty. Owners are quite nice and friendly...run by lifelong Christchurchians. Over all not too bad, pretty good location and... More

We stayed here for 2 nights in Christchurch. It was great for the price. The room was spacious, and the shower was amazing. There are 2 malls within walking distance. The only complaint is that it was a little far from downtown, but there was a bus stop right outside. Would recommend.

This motel is exactly what you might expect for the location and price. It looks relatively new, is well-equipped and very clean. There is air-conditioning. The location is good for both the centre of Christchurch and airport, which is why we chose it. The UK equivalent (roughly) would be a Premier Inn. For us, this has been ideal for a... More

Reception staff were super friendly and helpful when I checked in. I was even able to check in a little early. A lovely clean room greeted me, with a separate bathroom including a spa bath. The room was warm and despite being on a main road it was quiet. The spa bath was a lovely treat with a long haul... More
