The last room in town and really the place I would not go back to. Mouldy tiles in the bathroom, cupboard door in bathroom falling off, shower mixer faulty and would turn hot water off after two minutes. No service in the room meant that our bed was not made, rubish bin not emptied and only got fresh towel if... More

This would have to be the worst place I have stayed. There was mould in the bathroom and when you had a shower there appeared to be no drainage you were lucky if you didnt incur a head injury with the fall as the amount of water didnt drain away. Well the bed was terrible the worst I have ever... More

This is a well located motel however as we paid standard motel rate we expected a standard motel facility. Service isn't good, they actually ask you if you want house keeping daily which we thought was odd, understand recycling towels etc but thought they'd still come in each day. We let greedy for asking each day so said every second... More

We stayed here last night, and after seeing so many negative comments I was dubious as to the state of this motel, But when we arrived I asked to inspect the room as the reviews were so bad, and to my pleasant surprise it was very good. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the bed very comfortable, the Shower... More

I had paid upfront online in advance so was stuck. First thing that you notice is there is nowhere to put a suitcase. you have to live off the floor. The WiFi is only available near reception and would not work in the room. The bed is the worst i have ever encountered anywhere including the 3rd world. The road... More

This is the state of the studio room I stayed in on the 29th March 2014. These photos are not great quality. But the mould and filthy is obvious. As soon as I entered the room, all i could smell was cigarettes. I approached the lady at the counter about it, telling her I was letting her know as I... More

I get that in post earthquake Christchurch accommodation is very tight, this is no excuse! I booked this property as I needed to be in Riccarton and nothing else was available. Our room was not clean; the shower head wouldn't stay in place, the towel rack was blu tacked in place and dropped when we put a damp towel on... More

We booked this by mistake - meant to book another motel with higher scores but somehow got mixed up however it was better than we expected reading the reviews. The room was clean, a good size and the shower more than adequate. We were quite happy staying here for 2 nights. Location is good, a 24 hour mini supermarket next... More

Bathroom vanity, mirror, floor were all VERY dirty, hadn't been wiped over at all Yuck!! Shower took ages to warm up, and nozzle on shower was broken, spraying water everywhere.... More

My wife and I and another couple stayed here this week for one night. We had stayed in CC earlier on our trip and had a great experience at another venue. On our return to Australia and the U.S., we had a one night stay in CC and were very limited on choices, so stayed here. It was a huge... More
