We chose this motel because of its location and free airport transfer. Other than that, nothing much to shout out on the motel. As we came in large group, the motel is kind enough to pick us up with an additional car on top of the usual van. The rooms were ok. But the reception was not that friendly. As... More

The room smelled as soon as we got in there, the kitchen wasn't cleaned and the glasses had dirt on them. The hotel is dated and needs a revamp! Wifi was slow and I couldn't access my emails and viber

Stayed in a 2-bedroom unit c/w kitchenette. Comfortable enough for 6 pax. Beds were comfy except the sofa bed which spring had somewhat sunk in. Unit was clean. Service from the front desk was good. Provided free shuttle to airport (5 mins). Convenience store and restaurants available <10 mins walk. Recommended.

This morning i asked to be move to another unit.( my room has been booked for 2 weeks due to repairs to my house), nothing was done. I asked... More

Used this motel prior to leaving Christchurch for Oz. The room was large clean and well equipped. There are restaurants within walking distance and some shops if you need them. Early morning taxi arranged by staff which was prompt and good value for money at 4am. Would use this again for overnight stop.

we stayed overnight after a flight into christchurch. We booked at the last minute before boarding our flight from Australia, knowing we would get in after midnight and have to leave early the next morning. The motel was cheap so we didn't expect much, but when we got there we were pleasantly surprised. The rooms are very clean and spacious,... More

This motel is convenient, especially when arriving late at the airport - the shuttle bus will pick up until 2.00 a.m. The rooms are dated, but if arriving late and leaving the next morning - who cares! The gentleman in the office (presume the manager or owner) drove us back to the airport office of Britz the next morning, even... More

We had one night here before getting to the airport for an early morning flight. Everything was functional, but for the price ($136) I would have expected a little more. It was clean enough and the bed was fine. One major downside is the lack of eating outlets close by. There are no shops within reasonable walking distance. Would stay... More

We arrived at this motel late in the afternoon and only had an hour before we needed to be at a function we were going to, hence the reason we didn't notice first off the bad things of this motel. It is easier if I list each room separately. Kitchen: When I took two coffee mugs from the cupboard one... More
