The best feature of this place is the location. It is very close to Christchurch central and to the shops and restaurants in Riccarton. From the accommodation we were able to walk to the nearby restaurants for which there are a number to choose from. The location to other parts of Christchurch and Canterbury were easy to get to.

We had no complaints about cleanliness and the staff were friendly and helpful. Unfortunately it was the little things that were missing. Maybe previous guests do pack what they shouldn't in their bags, but that is no reason not to have everything replaced for the next guests.A motel with no salt & pepper, but they did give me some when...

Very basic rooms but the price reflects this. Good location to explore the city. The rooms could do with a refurbishment especially the bathrooms. I feel security could be reviewed as it is all very open and accessible.

I generally don't like writing negative feedback, but think that other travellers need to be aware... The room was filthy, dust galore, bed looked like it had been slept in & pillowslip had (unknown) marks on it... We arrived on a late flight from Auckland & whilst we had a hand written note from management stating they had 'already' taken... More

We had a 1 bedroom unit which contained all we needed. Not top quality but lots of space and comfy beds. Owner was friendly.Internet connection was slow and patchy at best. A good location on Riccarton Rd, near park and shopping. Could have done with better directions to the motel and an introduction manual about the room (had to ask... More

We stayed here for two nights on arrival in Christchurch before our road trip. The main room was big with double bed, kitchen area with fridge, microwave, kettle, tea/ coffee. There was a second bedroom attached with two single beds, and shower room with toilet combined not too small. I found this to be comfortable, not spotlessly clean but not... More

Pleasantly surprised by the quality of the room and the amenities available. Clean comfortable and a good start to our 'road trip'. As it is on the main road from the airport and on the bus route to city center it is ideally located. But it is also right next to the park and this proved to be a really... More

This was a supposedly 1 bedroom motel unit. It had poor quality and limited range of utensils and amenities for guests. The lounge fold out worn out dirty couch overcrowded the room and blocked an internal doorway. The single divan in lounge was too hard to sit on let alone sleep in. The safe exit door was covered by a... More

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
