Although the walk from town is about a mile, it is through a lovely park. The room is comfortable with a kitchenette and microwave. The bed is large and reasonably comfortable. The shower looked as if it was going to be a little unreliable, but it had plenty of hot water and was more than powerful enough. The hosts are... More

We stayed in a one bedroom suite at this hotel. The room was spacious for two people. The facilities were clean and really good. The best part was the location - right on Hagley park. Great for an early morning walk! The manager was very friendly as well, and gave us good tips. There are good choices for restaurants within... More

This Motel is hands down the cleanest place I have ever stayed. We stayed in a Queen suite, which was spacious and exceptionally clean and tidy. The kitchen was fully functional and we easily managed to cook a meal there. There were even the little extras like glad wrap and foil etc. The bathroom was very small but perfectly adequate....

The room was clean and had a really useful little kitchen. It's not too far from the city and there are plenty of eating places just round the corner. Also fairly near to the station which was great as we had to catch the 7am train

We stayed here last month and loved the place. It is quiet, has great amenities (great kitchenette, laundromat, parking space and free wi-fi). There are lots of restaurants, a 24 hour convinience store and a couple of bus stops within a 5 min walk. While it is some distance away from the airport, It is located right opposite the beautiful... More

i stayed in this hotel with other 5 friends and we took the family room for 1 night just opposite the reception. The reason why we stayed in this hotel were just because of the location and it can fit all of us. The bed and room was ok and clean. The only thing that surprise was the way we... More

Thank you for taking the time to give your review. When I checked you and your group in at 5pm I went through a city map with you as you advised you were going to go into the city. I also advised where shops and the supermarket was. As with all guests who are staying with us for just 1... More

There were 5 of traveling together. We opted for 2 rooms in advance however we would have fit comfortably in just one room. One bed was... More

We stayed here recently for 6 nights while in Christchurch,NZ. Was a very clean but bit dated looking type of Motel or Lodge however it was chosen by us for the purpose of being economical. The Managers Maggie and Bruce were friendly and helpful. Our room number 11 was opposite a side street called Bartlett street which became quite noisy... More
