We booked the 2 bedroom unit and we were very happy with it. Modern fixtures and very warm. The beds were so warm and we didn't use the electric blankets. Perfect shower pressure and a relaxing environment. Although on a really busy road we heard no road noise. Check in and check out was seamless. Would stay again. We had... More

Probably a bit unfair to give average rating - it should be between average and very good. I was given a 2 bed apartment although I booked one bedroom. Very nice people to start with and a good location. The apartment was on 2 levels, with the second bedroom upstairs. First few niggles - it was sort of an attic... More

I stayed at Vita Nova while in town for a conference at nearby Canterbury University. My room was incredibly clean and very quiet. I never heard any noise from the road or adjacent rooms. The staff was incredibly nice and professional. I had inadvertently scheduled the wrong check-out date and they were gracious enough to keep me in the same... More

There are a number of little motels on Riccarton Road but Vita Nova is definitely the best. I arrived late at night and had everything organised for me. Rooms are well furnished and comfortable. Electric blanket was a nice touch to a cold Christchurch winter! I would come back to the Vita Nova when visiting Christchurch again.

We stayed here for a night in Apr 2014 in the 2 Bedroom Unit on the 2nd level. The rooms are beautifully furnished and very clean. Well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds and we even love the bathroom. We will definitely stay here again if we return.

The rooms were nicely furnished, our back unit was quiet with no street noise, and the hosts carried all our bags to the room. I will definitely stay here again. We had booked a downstairs unit, however were accidentally booked upstairs - hence the help with the bags. We could have changed the next night, though as it was we... More
