Very clean & Tidy. Located on main route south out of Christchurch, so easy to get going if you are heading South. Close to lots of good restaurants and other shopping on Riccarton Road. Would be happy to stay again.

Very comfy room with everything we needed for the two nights we stayed there. The couple running the place were very helpful with our late check-in as well as helping us out with a lift to our shuttle pick-up point down the road. Great hospitality! Fully equipped kitchen and well heated.

We needed to stay in Christchurch recently and we found 306 Aspire on Riccarton in Chritchurch very comfortable. Our unit was very clean, tidy and warm, the bed very comfortable, we both had a good nights sleep, and the unit was quiet too. The bath room clean, with a kitchen that had all we wanted. It is a great location... More

Arrived late on a Sunday & greeted by Mary. Provided us with plenty of breakfast cereal, bread & milk to get started so we didn't have to worry the next morning. This hotel is a short 10 minute drive from the airport, has plenty of quality places to eat only a short walk away & also lots of things to... More

Onsite owners who are proud of their establishment. We could not have asked for a cleaner room. It was a true pleasure to stay here. Mary even helped us carry a bag to our room and made sure we knew how to get where we wanted to go. Great dining advice also. True hosts.

I've stayed here a couple of times now and I typically wouldn't write a review on a motel I fly into, sleep one or two nights and fly out - as business is nowadays. But every time I drop in here they are so friendly, accommodating and helpful I thought after a few stops here I had to say something.... More

We flew into Christchurch around midnight and stayed @ 306. They were accommodation with our late checkin and left keys out for us. We stayed for 2 nights and used it as a base to explore Christchurch which was only a couple minutes drive down the road or couple minutes walk to Westfield down the road. Really great pressure in...
