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

We wanted more space than provided in other motels we had previously tried along Riccarton Road. Our unit was not enormous but well designed with the bed on a mezzanine floor above a small living/dining/kitchen area. Much better than squeezing around the end of the bed or sitting sideways on a chair to watch TV in a cramped room as... More

Had such a lovely stay here. They were helpful on the phone. Upgraded us for free because they were quiet. Took our luggage up. Gave us little christmas presents. Place was immaculate. Soundproof. Service amazing. 10 minutes from the airport & 5 minutes from Christchurchs biggest shopping center. I totally recommend this place

After a late flight into Christchurch, we were a bit worried about how we would get into our accommodation. The owners left us a note on the reception wall and left our apartment open with the key inside. Thanks! The apartment was very close to the airport (taxi close, not walking close) and it was very modern and clean. Great... More

With hundreds of choices, you never know where to start ... But this place has a bit something different. We like : - Large room, apartment like, with a stair to the bedroom, on a mezzanine overlooking the living room. Everything one may need is here, even a cooker. Which is not common. - Correctly priced at 155 all inclusive... More

We were expecting a lot less for the budget price but were very happily surprised by this motel! The two bedroom apartment was great and the location was convenient. The beds were comfortable and the rooms clean and modern. Free wifi was a bonus too!
