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. With nicely sized rooms and living areas as well as a well equipped kitchen. 3 of us stayed in the motel, with 2 in the master bedroom and one on a single bed in the lounge. Cleaners are very efficient and effective which is very positive during a stay of more than a couple... More

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.

I found the reception lady/manager/owner to be cold and of no real wanting to be there or to be friendly. Room was ok, but kept knocking my head on angled ceiling , shower had good temp and water pressure Room was a little noisy from street noise, but was clean and tidy

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment, which we found to be very clean, quiet and comfortable. The staff were very welcoming and extremely helpful, especially the cleaning staff (they do amazing job). The unit had everything you needed, well equipped kitchenette, tv in lounge area, plus one in the second bedroom. The overall size of the unit was smaller... More

We stayed here on a last minute overnight trip to Christchurch between Christmas and New Year's Eve. We were very impressed with the warm greeting when we arrived and the room itself was clean, modern and homely! Perfect for my partner and I, for our wee getaway. Will be recommending to friends and will hopefully be back again in the... More
