My room was located on 2nd floor. Easy access and plenty of parking available. Room was awesome and very comfortable. I wont say noisy even my room was next to the main road. I love the bed, TV, heat pump and the shower pressure is just perfect...

We arrived late at night after a long journey and check in was effortless. The lights and the heating were already on and all we had to do was jump into bed! Free wifi which made the kids happy, comfortable beds and spotlessly clean. We awoke refreshed to begin our next journey.

Excellent service on check-in, making sure we booked our early morning call for the free airport shuttle. Easy checkout. Warm rooms on arrival with the lights on, created a welcoming atmosphere. Decor and fittings (room 807) are aged and worn in some places, but if you're using this motel as an overnighter for an airport transfer, it's comfortable. This is... More

Very tired room in much need of a makeover. Customer service on checkin ok. Free shuttle. Very disappointed at restaurant- very poor food and horrible service. Wifi good. Very mixed bag. Worst accommodation of our trip. Dated and nothing like the pictures on the website.

Stayed here for one night pre flight. Really appreciated the free airport shuttle which was quick to pick us up and on time to take us back to the airport. Our room was lovely; big comfortable bed and nice furnishings. The mini kitchen was a pleasant surprise, and would have been very useful on a longer stay. The room was... More

I had the pleasure of staying in this fantastic place near the airport and not far to CBD. Service was brilliant. Clean tidy quiet room. Queen bed and large tv. Great cooking facilities or restaurant/room service which I didn't use. I've been to Christchurch many times and haven't stayed here before but I definitely will when I return (next week).... More

The place was close to the airport and had free airport shuttle, which was great because my friend and I had to get to the airport at 4am in the morning. Had free wifi as well. The room that we stayed in was really comfy, with a heater and electric blankets. Had a microwave too in the kitchenette.
