My husband and our son stayed here for 3 nights. We went for the open day at the university. This motel was a good location, it was easy to find. The room was exactly as we booked. Queen and single, with fridge and microwave, everything we needed was supplied and the room was pretty red and white colours. Good heating... More

Stayed here for a month while our house was being repaired. Very helpful and friendly staff. Very clean, tidy and well appointed rooms (we stayed in three rooms during that time) Best showers I've encounted, Only complaint would be that it can be noisy if you are in a room next to the main road.

We were coming down to Christchurch for a weekend and as we were doing the return day trip on the Tranz Alpine we wanted to be close to the Railway Station. There were several places to choose from - we selected the Addington Court Motel because it looked good on their website, was reasonably priced - and it was rated... More

We had a very pleasant stay there, staff friendly and helpful. Our unit had everything there that we needed. Proximity to restaurant and super value store was good. Our taxi fare to the train station to get on the Tranz Alpine Express was paid for by the motel which was appreciated. Highly recommend staying there

Motel worth with value and it is convenience by walk to restaurant and convenience store. If you are going take the train earlier morning, this location was a good place for a night stay. Clean environment, great location and lovely staff ^^~

I liked this place - convenient enough location (maybe 25 mins walk to central Christchurch), good wifi, clean room and reasonably priced. It's a motel, so it's no-frills, but I felt like I got good value out of the stay, and the staff was very friendly. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend to a friend if they were headed to Christchurch.

Work booked me in here as I was keen for a change from the regular corporate hotels. I was really impressed, modern rooms. Very clean, tidy and looked after. Reasonably priced breakfast $12 is available if you order night before, and is delivers to your room on the night prior. Location was good - just a 400-500m walk to a... More

We traveled into Christchurch on the KiwiRail Coastal Pacific and planned an overnight stay to go out the next day on the KiwiRail TranzAlpine train. The night before our arrival the B&B we had reserved let us know that they had double-booked our room and we were out of luck. With some calling around, we found the Addington Court Motel.... More

This place is an absolute gem. Friendly and clean with an eye to detail that is sadly lacking in most places. It's just off the main road, but the double glazing keeps the rooms peaceful and quiet at night. We received a lovely welcome from the hosts, and they were very accomodating to our last minute requests o stay extra... More
