Basic room, upstairs which an effort for my 89 yo Mum. There was no indication of double level when booking. Bedding looks old and soft(and it was). Curtains resembled a spiders web with a fake flower. Motel was on a main road (Riccarton Rd). It had been a warm day, so the only way to catch the breeze was to... More

After booking a room via their web site, emailing them, ringing twice to confirm our booking, we arrived at 8.30pm on a Tuesday night to find there was no booking. No offer was made to try and find us accommodation, and with 30,000 people in Christchurch for Kapa Haka we were not very happy to be out on the streets... More

This is a basic- level motel, handily sited for Hagley Park and the railway. Our room was small with a bed-sit arrangement ie there was no separate bedroom. This did not bother us but may not suit everyone. It was clean but desperately in need of a makeover- the decor is tired and very drab. We felt it was overpriced... More

Great motel near center of town. Can walk to Hadley Park. Rooms had kitchenette with coffee and tea, also cream. Heated pads on beds which were great on chilly nights. Only downside was $5 charge each day for WiFi.

We were desperate for accommodation at a reasonable price so ignored poor reviews and stayed here for 3 nights in February 2014. A pleasant surprise! Dated decor does not matter. We stayed in 2 different rooms and found both spacious, clean, comfortable and not noisy. One was opposite the bus stop. Very convenient to the city.

I would never stay here again. First the bed was uncomfortable, and the street noise was so loud I had to wear ear plugs. When I went into the bathroom in the morning, almost fell from the water all over the bathroom floor. Looked up, and saw the water dripping from ceiling. Asked mgt to fix, and they later said...

Upon arrival we were taken back by the gastly food smell at reception, which by the way remained every time we entered the reception, any time of day!! The room was adequate, with a very firm, double bed. The decor is rather unusual with "spider web like black string" curtains acting as shadow curtains but not providing any privacy. the... More

Nice staff but rooms very basic and utilitarian. Sad outlook into neighbouring house's windows and large skip bin. Squashed spider on bathroom floor, but otherwise clean. Comfortable bed however I really wanted 2 pillows. small shower which barely got hot.
