It's a well-located motel with all the main facilities. Big mall near by and some restaurants too. Nothing special with the room. Clean and tidy. We must admit that the owners were very kindly and helpful.

Since our first trip to Christchurch we have stayed at 306 Aspire on Riccarton Motel and found it to be all one could wish for. Everything within walking distance with friendly Mary and Terry being so kind and helpful, our stay was complete. Anyone wishing a relaxing time here will find 306 Aspire on Riccarton the best.

Had a wonderful two night stay here to revisit Christchurch before leaving the country. Hosts were welcoming and very helpful. The room was warm, clean and had everything needed. Close by restaurants and shopping at Church Corner. Also close to CBD and main roads north and south. Would definitely stay here again.

Melanie, many thanks for your review. We hope you both had a great trip around the South Island, and that your rental van went well, (and you managed to get some more passengers), hope you enjoyed Tekapo, Te Anau, Queenstown and Franz Josef, and enjoyed the train trip on the Tranz Alpine.

The motel is basic but clean and comfortable. It was good value for the relatively low price charged. The welcome we received on arrival was wonderful. The lady at the counter could not have been more friendly and helpful and this standard of service continued throughout our stay. Recommended.

We stayed here twice whilst in New Zealand and were not disappointed either time. The two bedroom spa apartment (downstairs) was more than spacious enough for two adults and two teenage children. The kitchen and bathrooms were modern and clean and the separate toilet worked well with 4 people. Bed was comfortable. Motel was near Riccarton Mall and a Countdown... More

She also gave us some Christmas crackers! There is a dairy (what we'd call a small grocery store) around 200-300 meters away. The riccarton mall... More
