This motel is well located in Christchurch Motel Zone, pretty easy to access from airport, surroundings are nice and convenient, many shops, and westfield mall. However, we stayed with booking on line, they mess-up our booking, which we need re book again, very lucky we got the room to stay, however, their attitude and lack of customer service skill made...

Great place to stay. Nice and peaceful but not too far from the Riccarton mall. There were 5 in our family and our unit was great. I would not have any issues in staying here again or to recommend to others to stay. Thanks for a great stay

My husband and I stayed in the hotel with our 12month old son. It has a lovely bathroom with huge spa bath which was a nice touch, and a nice little area to have a drink outside while our son fell asleep. Its nothing special but its fairly new and very clean.

I was needlessly concerned that this was the only place with 4 rooms available with the Cricket World Cup in town. Very nice modern room with all the amenities. Very new and tidy premises. I can't say much about the service as checkin was so quick that I barely got to speak to staff and was gone again before the... More

My wife rang this motel to ensure that she could reserve a ground floor room for herself and he 84 year old mother. She was assured at the time of the reservation that they could meet her requirements. When she arrived she was given a room on the first floor where she and her mother had to climb the stairs...

The room was a bit tight but contained everything you will want for a comfortable stay. The bathroom was spacious however and had a lovely shower. There is a well equipped kitchenette. Located in Ricarton road, there many convenient shops and small cafes, take aways and restaurants near by. Good laundry area available also and large car park.

I stayed at this motel with my moderately mobility impaired father. I asked for a ground floor apartment if possible and this request was granted. We had a warm welcome on arrival. The room was comfortable and met our needs more than adequately. It had a large enough spa bath and very comfortable beds with good linen. Unfortunately the cleaning... More

We stayed in here 1 night on spec. The motel was fairly new and well run and clean. Our room had a spa bath which was a bonus feature. But quite a bit of road noise and a digger worked till 2am across the road from the hotel. Two rooms one was a bedroom both had TVs. Good amount of... More

We stayed here as a last minute decision when arriving on a late flight. It is quite basic, however everything was clean and the bed was comfortable. Staff are nice and friendly. It will do the trick for a night’s sleep although it is over-priced @ $160/night.
