Directly opposite Riccarton Mall. You can leave Mum to shop and take the kids off for some fun. Well appointed rooms with some nice touches. Great hosts. Not a lot of parking but imagine you can find some in side streets if more needed.

Was here for a couple nights. Got a great welcome and even some free cookies and help with any questions I had. The rooms are nice and clean and pretty spacious, didn't have much time to see a lot of Christchurch but the location seemed really good.

We stayed for 5 nights at Christchurch and chose this motel due to it's location. We booked one of the 2 bedroom houses which was just across the road from the mall and very close to the city. Although slightly dated in furnishings, the rooms were very clean and tidy. The shower makes a very loud screeching noise which woke... More

We, a family of four with young children, stayed for 3 nights at Kauri. It has best location, right opposite of Westfield Riccarton for shopping and supermarket. Plenty of restaurants, Asian and western, nearby. Less than 5 min walk to the only Katmandu clothing outlet store.

No complaints - comfortable, hassle free and convenient. We will definitely use this place again for future trips. It was a very pleasant place to be for a couple of nights and we made the most of the all the dining and shopping opportunities on our doorstep.

Nice room with a small kitchen and a bathroom with spa. We chose this motel because it is just in front of a shopping center, really convenient to prepare our travel in new zealand (kmart and food shop) Close to the airport (10 minutes by car) Fery nice people at reception

I would highly recommend this motel and will definitely stay there again. The location is perfect being directly opposite the Westfield shopping mall. It is locally owned so you get that extra personal touch...we were given Xmas mince pies and allowed to check in earlier as the room was ready. Lovely clean, modern rooms and they have the best shower!
