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

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.
