Older looking on the outside but thoroughly renovated inside. Booked a studio room for two nights and were warmly welcomed. Plenty of space, everything worked, short drive to supermarket/fuel/takeaway and a 15 minute walk to the centre of the city - there is also a bus in. Though Colombo Street is the main street through the city, the motel is... More

Reception was friendly and helpful. For the same price as a standard, we were given a deluxe room on the phone (no early booking), so off to a good start from the beginning. The rooms were the biggest we've experienced from our travel- 4 rooms in total; bedroom, kitchen, lounge and bathroom. Brochures and discounts for the Antarctic Centre and... More

This was the best place we stayed at in New Zealand. The staff was awesome. We weren't expecting it, but they even made the beds and cleaned the room each night we stayed. They also held our luggage for us on our final day after checkout so that we could venture into town. Great, great people. This was a great... More

Well-equipped, and heated (!) rooms, clean, spacious with very accommodating and kind service. (I was offered use of hosts' garage to store and charge my electric mobility scooter). Walking distance to downtown, shops and bus lines was as short as advertised. We would definitely return, but we really didn't have a bad stay anywhere in the country!

We booked for 2 nights and stayed for 8! Although alittle outdated, the apartments were huge. We had a bedroom, sitting room, full kitchen and enormous bathroom with seperate shower, unbelievable value for money. Everything was spotlessly clean (and I am very fussy!). The location was fantastic for strolling into town. I know I'm repeating what has already been said... More

We stayed here for a couple of nights in April 2009. The motel is a quick 5 minute drive from downtown Christchurch. Check-in was smooth and the room was spacious. The property could use a bit of renovation and apart from a couple of minor issues (there was some water damage in the bathroom for example), our stay was very... More

Angie and Eugene went to every effort to be accommodating. Despite a mixed up booking by a third party, they went to the effort of finding nearby alternative accommodation for some of our party and collecting all 7 of us from the railway station. They were always chatty and happy to offer advice. The accommodation is generously sized and well... More
