Had a fantastic stay at this motel. The owners were very helpful and provided lots of useful local information. They even helped with booking a shuttle to the airport when departing. The room was clean and comfortable with everything you could ask for. Would definitely stay here again.

We planned one night in this hotel. Lovely accommodations! Then I needed to be rushed to the hospital for emergency care. The hotel owner helped get an ambulance and let my husband extend our stay for nearly a week until I was out of the hospital and feeling better. It was a pleasant spot to spend a couple days recuperating.... More

Stayed here on a recent visit to New Zealand on arrival and again the night before I left. Cannot fault the accommodation, spotlessly clean, has a dressing table with mirror which was lacking in most other places we stayed. Bed was a super king and very comfortable. Great selection of toiletries in the bathroom. Extremely helpful reception ladies, free pint... More

We chose this motel as it was within the Christchurch CBD. Firstly the hostess was very helpful, obliging and informative, and shared her experience of the tragic earthquake. The unit had great bed, very comfortable leather lounge chairs, spacious room, great kitchen facilities and double glazing to ensure quiet and temperature control. The motel is in easy walk distance to... More

My flight was delayed and couldn't reach Colombo in the City before 1am, I was a little bit nervous, but all was set up for my stay, a word telling where was my room and the ket, and the breakfast ready.

We had nowhere to stay in Christchurch. I called on the way from Arthur's Pass and we were welcomed with open arms (and of course fresh milk!!). The room was immaculate. It was very clean, amazing location and a very comfortable afternoon!! I would highly recommend staying at this motel. It is close to the city center (Pomeroys!) and the... More

Very hospitable owners who are keen to ensure that you have an enjoyable stay, even suggesting that we would be better off walking 200m to have a better breakfast than their more limited offerings. Great location allowing easy walking to all CBD points of interest and the food and drinks options. Our first floor room was well appointed and clean,... More

Great for what it is, which is basically a small motel in a very good location in close walking proximity to downtown Christchurch. Owners are very friendly and helpful, going out of their way to make you feel welcome. Room was clean and with all of the basic amenities but a bit stuffy and musty. You could leave the windows...

We arrived here at 1a.m.from the airport to find the key in the door of our room, the lights on and milk in the frig ready for our nightcap of Milo. The room was spacious and light, the bed was large and comfy. I found the pillows to be too thick for my sore neck and when we checked in... More
