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

Quick check-in. Cosy and tidy studio for two. Nice bed, bathroom with toiletries, fully equipped kitchen, indoor/outdoor dining areas, docking station. Great location near the Mega Riccarton Mall, 3 km from Hagley Park, 5 km from Cathedral Square, 6 km from airport, 10 km from Highway SH 73 to Arthur's Pass and Greymouth.

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
