We travelled on a midnight flight from Melbourne and arrived at 7am - the staff were super friendly and let us into our room early for a sleep. This isn't necessarily normal so don't expect this of them - just saying their great service and care was absolutely brilliant. The bed was so comfortable, the best we stayed in for... More

Stayed in a room with jacuzzi and it was a super rejuvenating experience. Location was good to top up an eventful stay with added bonus of a very helpful front desk staff who went an extra mile helping me with a loan travel adapter which was essential for my conference meeting in a comfortable room after working hours. Highly recommended... More

Riccarton Road is full of motels. We chose 298 Westside Motor Lodge which was a nice and tidy and reasonably modern. While the road was busy I really didn't hear much of the traffic at all. Would recommend.

I only stayed one night but felt I could stay in this place for ages! Very nice, comfortable, clean, quiet and very nice people working there. Handy location and the rooms were really warm with a heatpump. Looking forward to my next visit.

We stayed one night here while attending a relatives birthday, and found the rooms to be very quiet, clean and tidy. The service was exemplary, we will be staying there on all our trips to Christchurch, mainly because the staff are wonderful and couldn't do enough for us during our stay.

Thank you for your review. Great to see you had a quiet nite with us. The back section units and double glassing worked well to keep us away from the traffic noise:) A wee recommendation: we also have a large 3 bedroom family unit with a big lounge just opposite the smaller one that you had.

Like most others, we found this place to be quite clean. The unit that we had (#8) seemed small, but the property itself isn't huge and there are good number of units placed in the small amount of space, so I doubt any of them are very large. The bathroom was the smallest portion of the unit. The ceiling above... More

Thank you for your review. Hope you enjoyed your stay in our twin studio. As there are 2 beds in the same room, the size of the room looks a bit small, the standard studio with only one bed will give you more space in the room and cheaper on price too:) Our air condition worked well in both summer...

there are many motels on Riccarton Road. 298 Westfield holds its own in terms of room comfort, but is let down very badly with the wi-fi. You can ask for vouchers, of 200 MB, advertised by the Zenbu company as 'easy, cheap, reliable'', and preferable to timed connections. It totally isn't. Any idea how long 200 MB gets you? 7... More
