Lovely room with everything that you need. Very friendly staff at both the front desk and the bar. Really comfortable bed, and fantastic water pressure in the shower. The extra bonus was the complimentary shuttle back to the airport the next day.

We were in room 826 (one floor) which was somewhat small but had a little patio out back. It was clean & quiet. We were told where the bus line is that takes you downtown.(1/2 block). I highly recommend checking out the Earthquake area to understand the destruction & rebuilding that is going on. We took the red double decker... More

Large rooms, clean motel and near the airport. Christchurch does not have much to offer which made me a little apprehensive about checking into an airport motel. However this facility is well kept and spacious. Our room had 2 rooms, bedroom with 3 beds and a living room. Bathroom was clean and also had a kitchenette. Motel also has a... More

Last night of holiday so really appreciated the pleasantness of this place. Check in was smooth and friendly. Our room was large, clean and comfortable. Linen was good quality and the kitchen well equipped. We stayed in a room at the back which was very quiet. It was way better than I expected. The large area allowed easier re packing... More

I have been staying here for business since October of last year, and the staff are really great, the rooms are a decent size, comfortable beds, nice linen, great showers. Restaurant is good, meals have always been lovely. Free shuttle to the airport is handy. This is my favourite place to stay in Christchurch based on the above plus the... More

Our stay was a short but enjoyable one. We arrived in the afternoon after a weekend camping. The receptionist was cheerful and helpful. The kitchenette had everything we needed to cook up a mac 'n cheese and we crashed out in front of the TV. The hot shower in the morning made the early (4:45am) airport transfer an easy one....

Booked 3 bed executive suite for 2 nights before leaving NZ. The fans for the kitchen or bathroom did not work. There was no cooling. There were holes in the walls near electrical services. No curtain for a bedroom window. Double bed rather than advertised King. Very noisy. Flashing lights of smoke detector in the bedroom. And over $420 a... More

Fabulous from the pick up at the airport to the drop off. Excellent room. Fabulous furnishing. My first time in the upstairs room. Dinner was top class & value for money. Very nice staff. Thanks Tony, Kelly & Simon for another fantastic stay.
