I have been here two times, in January and in late dec 2013, with the family of 4. The staff is friendly and helpful rooms are quite big, and furniture and decorations are very nice, although the price is just as any ordinary motel. Comfortable and large beds, bathroom with the shower is perfect, the kitchen corner is well equipped.... More

The staff was friendly and guiding, the facilities were clean, the kitchenette was complete with vessels and cutlery and the motel itself was in a decent location in the city. The staff even helped us book a taxi to the airport. You might have to drag your luggage up and down a few stairs (does not have a lift), but... More

Stayed for 5 nights recently on business and was impressed with the friendly service. Rooms are dated but clean and well maintained, and staff are very accommodating. I left my electric toothbrush and toothpaste and it was not too much trouble to have it returned to me. Very close to AMI Stadium with easy access to the city and airport.

Stayed here for 1 night prior to taking the Trans Alpine train. Nothing spectacular, warm welcome, early check in was requested en route and granted, but equally, nothing to blow your socks off. Certainly recommend giving this place a try.

I arrived at 8pm, was met at the door of reception and greeted by name and taken to my toasty room as she had already turned on the heating (it was 0 degrees!) which was super welcome! Spotlessly clean, free wifi, great shower. Everything I needed for a 2 night work stay. Only downside was being woken at 11:30pm by... More

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 ^^~
