Highly recommend this motel. Spotlessly clean, bed linen excellent, fresh towels daily, everything you need. Would def stay again. Has wifi. Just along from a small retail park, the Bush Inn, lovely range of wee shops. Excellent restaurant there, The Lone Star, great food, big portions.

Very close to supermarkets, shops and food outlets and PUB/Tab. Also very close to catch buses. Hosts were more than helpful with all our needs. Having travelled extensively, I would have to rate the beds at this motel to have the BEST I have ever slept on. Pity the bed did not fit in my travel bag.

On main road, but very quiet. We had an upstairs two bedroom unit that had a large lounge with comfortable couches, full kitchen, spa bath and SKY TV. One bedroom had a King bed and the other a Queen and a single. Good laundry facilities available - $9 for a large load, plus powder and dryer.

The hosts Mary, Terry, and Sylvia all made my partner and I feel very welcome during our 2 week stay. We had relocated to Christchurch, and they helped us while we tried to live a normal life until our belongings arrived and we could move into our new home. I couldn't have asked for a more proficient and helpful group... More

We have been regular stayers at 306 on Riccarton over the past few months and Mary and the team have provided great service and accommodation every time and that's why we keep coming back. The motel is conveniently located close to the Halls of residence for UC and the University as well as the Bush Inn shopping centre which is... More

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
