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

We had booked 3 night stay in a studio unit with them and had a fantastic stay. Highlights: -> extremely friendly staff member (when you call for reservation, do ask for Trish/Amanda) -> timely housekeeping (we were surprised by the amount of detailing they put in in daily cleaning) -> courteous enough to give away free wifi besides milk bottles,...

I booked the spa studio room. The rooms are clean, appear to be recently refurbished. The small kitchenette is well equipped. The bathroom is a good size.. spa was awesome on the cold night! Short drive to westfield mall. No complaints.

I stayed in a studio unit for just one night while some painting was being completed on my home. It was a very small room but clean and had the essentials. With it being a very cold night, I decided to try the electric blanket but did notice that there were wires showing on the controls which was a bit... More

The hotel is very comfortable indeed.

The rooms were neat and space was adequate. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. While the motel was away from the town center, it was close to some really good food places and shopping for provisions was also convenient. It was also a 15 minute walk to the intercity bus stop which worked well for us since we were... More

When we booked in, we were allocated an upstairs studio unit. The ensuire had a steeply sloping ceiling, not doubt imposed by building regulations to avoid shading adjoining properties, and care was necesssary to avoid bumping your head. Otherwise there was little to complain about. The motel is on a busy road with umpteen other motels giving competition which helps... More

This motel is great value for money. Well located in Christchurch. Rooms are clean and tidy with a big Sony TV and all amenities. Ideal for large wedding parties which they seem to have quite a few of. We stayed for 4 nights. Would happily stay there again.
