Great location and room was very clean. It had all the facilities you'd expect, plus enough for a short self catering stay. The guy at reception was outstanding with great help and advice on offer. Would stay again.

During my firs business trip in New Zealand, I stayed hear for one day/night. This apartment is really minimalist but comfortable. The life in this country is really expensive and for this reason the price list of this motel is cheap. Very kind was the guy at the reception desk.

After reading positive reviews for this accommodation we booked for our first 2 nights after arriving in Christchurch. The location is fair considering the state of the city (a lot of it is still in ruins), however the amenities were lacking. Being 25 degrees and above whilst there for the cost you would expect at least fans to cool the... More

We stayed here for one night whilst touring South Island. The ground floor room was spacious, net kitchen and small bathroom adequate for one night. Free wifi and parking. It is well positioned for the city, a decent walk to Cashel St and Cathedral.

Thank you for your review! We are approximately a 5 minute or less walk to the very center of Christchurch city. We always have lots of available, free car parking spaces within our complex for our guests even on the nights where we are fully booked out. More

The staff were all so very helpful. They even went out of their way to accommodate for my fathers Gluten free diet needs. The accommodation was comfortable and centrally locating :) The team were very helpful in helping us plan our trip :) I would highly recommend and definitely stay here again in the future.

Christchurch is a tough place to visit these days, with very limited hotels and restaurants, but my husband and I were happy we got to see it and pump some tourist dollars into their economy. The motel is fine -- our room was big, and the kitchen area and bathroom were well-equipped, and there's free wifi which is helpful. The... More

Really quiet inside the rooms. There was a lounge chair, a table with 2chairs, thick curtains and plenty of kitchen equipment. The Managers were so helpful. We checked in at 2am and no trouble doing this (pre-arranged). Very comfortable bed. Christchurch being as it's at the moment, we found it really hard to find somewhere to get dinner the next...
