I stay here requesntly for work and always return to Kauri Motel. The rooms are modern, clean and well presented for a reasonable price and great location. The addition of soundproofing and a heat pump in every room is an added bonus to ensure a quality nights sleep. Denis and Helen are amazing hosts and I am greated warmly every... More

Booked this motel because it was so close to Riccarton Mall and Horncastle Arena and was soundproofed and looked nice. It was very very nice and the hosts are just lovely. The room was really nice and it was immaculate and very good value. We will definitely stay again.

Recently my husband and I, my parents and our son and his girlfriend all stayed in the Kauri Motels in Riccarton, Christchurch. I found the units to be very clean and tidy and the location of the motels really convenient. Helen, one of the owners was just so pleasant and helpful, plus makes beautiful muffins! We actually went back for... More

The location was perfect for me as I was working in Riccarton during the week. I was in Room 27 which is upstairs and the closest unit to the very busy Riccarton Road. There was plenty of traffic noise when the windows were open but once closed it was largely shut out. The room was immaculate and contained a queen... More

We stayed 7 days and had a great time exploring the city. We hired bikes and cycled everywhere and saw so much of this lovely City. First time in New Zealand and so glad we stayed at the Kauri Motel late December 2014. The Motel is in a great location, across the road from the shopping mall and surprisingly quite... More

We stayed here only one night before heading out to west. Helen was friendly and welcome us with muffins. The room is very clean. we also cooked our-self dinner with in-room sufficient kitchenette. The most important is a good internet and WiFi provided.

My family stayed at Kauri Motel on December and early January 2015. We would rate this place as very good. Great value for money with great services and kindness. It was located just across big mall, so it was a perfect location. Helen and Denis were so kind and gave such a great help (e.g.useful information and free-coupon discount for... More

while the location is excellent, the rooms are clean and well equipped, it was not what we reserved. After eight days of travel we were looking forward to the spa bath. We reserved a room on the ground floor with spa. We got upstairs without. When I asked the gentleman about it, he had a bit of a sheepish look,... More
