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...

The main reason for staying in a motel is the need for a bed for the night so it's got to be a good one. Our king bed was superb so number one priority fulfilled. The good supply of plunger coffee was most appreciated, along with coffee mugs and real milk! The unit was very clean, owners very friendly, all... More

I needed to be in Christchurch for a evening function and chose to stay close to where that was being held. Checking Tripadvisor, I found 306 On Riccarton Motel. I had never stayed there before. I did not have much time between landing, arriving at the motel and needing to be at the function. When checking in I asked if... More

This is a reasonably priced, clean and comfortable, apartment-style motel in Christchurch. It is well-located within a short-walking distance shops, supermarkets and restaurants. Owners and staff are excellent.

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.

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.

We stayed here while in Christchurch for a wedding - I have stayed here many times before and keep coming back! The location of this motel is excellent, with all amenities available at either the Bush Inn Shopping centre or Riccarton Mall within walking distance, convenient bus transport close by and also plenty of car parking.
