We had a trip of TranzAlpine from CHCH to Greymouth, so stayed CHCH one night, the motel is tiny, but the room is spacious inside, tidy and comfortable. The reason of staying at Tui Lodge is which close the rail station. The reception staff is nice young man, very friendly and helpful, who gave us lots of useful information about... More

We were looking for a cheap place for two nights for a family of four. This motel was cheap, and did the job. It's probably past its use-by date in some ways, but our beds were clean and warm, the shower worked fine and the place did the job for us. However, the heat pump only put out cool air,... More

I am from Christchurch and was back home to visit family, We stayed in a number of available motels and camping grounds, accommodation is hard to find even for the people still living there. BUT I would rather have stayed in the car for my last night. This was the most disgusting place I have ever been into. We are... More

Booked 2 Bedroom for 2 couples and found 1 bedroom with queen bed and single bed. 2nd bedroom with single bed. How about that. There was a pull out double in lounge but with that out there was no room. In the end we had to pay for 2 studio units side by side. Not very good. We had a... More

Stayed one night, accommodation was scarce in Christchurch and only wanted 1 night until we flew out the next morning. Our room backed onto the owner/manager's room and the walls were not noiseproof. Towels were old and hard, carpet worn, small kitchenette with old appliances and everthing was a bit grubby.

I needed accommodation for three adults close to Bishopdale, and this motel hit the spot. We were halfway between the city and the people we were visiting. The room is small and basic, but I expected that for the price. The beds were pretty hard, but we actually slept well. The first night was hard to get to sleep because... More
