3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

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.

Our stay started badly. We had booked via wotif and prepaid for the room but the owner insisted we hadn't. Fortunately we had the receipt and were able to prove we had already paid. This motel was noisy - lots of noise from the busy road even though we were set back from the road. The bathroom contained dead insects... More

Room was dirty, stained, wall are was a piece of A4 paper in a frame made poorly by the owner, prob the worst I... More

Stayed here for one night on our way through Chch. Was particularly average; first impressions not very good as the place looked a bit grotty from the outside but the room was clean enough not spick and span but hygienic at least. We were given an upstairs apartment which since I was with my 84 year old grandmother, wasn't overly... More

I caught the bus from Christchurch Airport to the city, via Riccarton. The bus stop where I got off on Riccarton Road was about 10 meters from the Cheery Tree Lodge. The room was okay, nothing flash but reasonably clean & comfortable. There are many shops and restaurants within a 10 minute walk of the motel. There is also a... More

We stayed for two nights, the man at reception was helpful and friendly! The people in the room next to ours were drunk and noisy until about 2am (maybe longer but that's when we became to fed up and complained) Woke the poor man at reception up, he rang the people in the room and he moved us to another...
