Flew down early in the morning to have a short visit to Christchurch to see the extent of damage to the city. It was sad to see what damage the earthquake has done, affecting so many lives. I managed to book in early, change and set off on my 'look and see' of the city centre. After a number of... More

We had three nights at this motel in Bealey Ave, Christchurch. From the moment we arrived, it exuded a sense of home. Comfortable room with a cosy atmosphere. It was close to a hotel, which served top meals, and a few other facilities were nearby. The rooms were very clean and the staff were meticulous in keeping it like that.... More

Stayed here while on business, and the room was perfect for the one night. Had a bit of a conversation with the staff who showed me the earthquake damage around the motel. Still very evident, but safe to stay at. The room was a basic Queen bed, flat screen Tv, and Hot drink making facilities, the shower was amazing, one... More

It is not exceptional, but it is cheery, well-run, clean & staffed by very nice folks. I liked the walking distance to downtown & restaurants. I was happy that I travel lightly since I was on the second floor. But the little kitchen was handy & the hosts' delivered a substantial, fresh breakfast that evening so I could get off... More

My husband, three young adult daughters and I stayed for two nights in Jan 2014 in a 3 bedroom apartment which was as described. It has one flight of stairs up to living area and the bedrooms up another flight. We found it very comfortable with a very well equipped kitchen. It was clean, bright and in a convenient location...

Glad that we have to stay for a night only. Apartment is very old and rundown. Tedious to lug big luggages up the 2 stories apartment. Small kitchen and no laundry facility. Not worth the price and not a nice place to stay for many nights.

Very friendly and clean. I used this place to stay to get over jetlag and get refreshed for the night and so comfortable and clean. Would highly recommend. Wifi is good and fast and available for $5 per hour but make sure you log out when not using it as it saves your minutes. Tea and coffee supplied by complimentary... More

We had the “studio compact” 2 nights in October. Staff was super friendly and helped out a lot. Free parking right outside the studio. We got a studio on the first floor. The room is not that spacious, but still big enough for 2 persons. Clean bathroom with toiletries. Bed was comfortable and big. Good facilities with toaster, fridge, kettle... More
