Our flight arrived after midnight. Malcolm and Linda arranged things so we could access our room when we arrived. Not only was everything as described, on a cold, wet and windy night the heater was on, the lights were on and everthing was just perfect. A more welcoming experience we could not ask for. Thank you both for an excellent... More

We are a Ma 'n Pa motel and our office is open thirteen hours a day (twelve in the off season). We realise that some of our guests have travel arrangements that get them here at times that don't necessarily suit us so we do our best to make their arrival as easy and comfortable as possible. More

Lovely motel, very friendly and helpful staff / owner, and plenty of restaurants and supermarket (within approximately 7 mins walking distance), close by. Not too far from the airport or the centre of the city. The room was excellent, you could easily live in an apartment this size!!! There was a well stocked, separate kitchen with a door to close...

This motel is only a short drive from the Airport and even closer to the City centre. The Manager was very friendly and welcoming on our arrival and gave us all the information we needed on local amenities. The room was clean and spacious with a well equipped kitchenette - everything we needed including fridge, toaster, microwave and electric fry... More

We stayed here after over 24 hours of traveling from the UK and it was everything we could have wished for; quiet, clean, spacious, well decorated, with a big comfortable bed with plenty of choice of weights of bedding, (very considerate when you don't really know whether you will be hot or cold), a good shower, plenty of surfaces to...

24 hours plus in a bus with wings is no fun and having done the trip myself a few times, I know exactly what it feels like. Here at Sherborne we know what people need at the end of it: somewhere clean and quiet to wash up and relax until you feel human again. More

We were only here for a very short night before our flight the next morning. It was easy to find from the airport and not too far from the downtown area. The staff was very friendly and helpful in recommending restaurants and fuel stations. The room was clean and adequate for our short stay.

Thanks for your positive feedback. We have a good group of cleaners who try hard to maintain our rooms to a top standard and Linda and I always try to give our guests all the local info they need. More

Our family stayed here at the beginning of our holiday. It was a perfect choice - clean, quiet and comfortable, a well equipped kitchen and nice bathroom. Malcolm and Linda were incredibly helpful after we discovered we had left our computer tablet behind. It was no trouble for them: they packed it carefully and shipped it to our next accommodation....

It was no trouble at all, happy to help - I've had some personal experience of losing expensive items when I've been away. All I did was what I would've liked to have been done for me. More

On arrival and booking in, we were greeted by Malcolm who was friendly and informative about the local area. The unit was very clean, and serviced daily during our stay which was excellent. Very comfortable, good location and quiet. Overall a pleasant experience. Will stay again when in Christchurch.

We had a ground floor 1-bed room with a spa. It is very dated and needing renovation. The spa had a chip in the base and mouldy silicone around the edges. It used to have a straight shower curtain as the holes were in the tiles from that. It now has a round curtain to catch all the water, not... More

If only it were as simple as selling my car to pay for renovating a couple of rooms. A major difficulty in post-earthquake Christchurch is attracting tradesmen to do these little nuisance jobs when there's more money to be made with less hassle, doing new builds. I can't say I blame them but it's very frustrating when you're trying to... More

A very clean, spacious room with separate bedroom, kitchenette and living room located about a 20 minute walk from the city centre and 2 blocks from grocery store and restaurants. It took us longer to drive to the city centre because of the construction mess on the roads and buildings in the aftermath of the 2011 earthquake. Comfortable bed in... More

The owner could hardly make us feel less welcome as he took my $180 - for one night. Then we were directed to a unit so dark we needed the lights on - at 4pm on a sunny day! I somehow wasn't surprised when I was asked to RETURN the newspaper after I'd read it when I went to collect... More

I'm kinda stunned by the comment that I was "uninviting". I often receive praise in these forums for being friendly and helpful which is what I try to be. I guess we all have our off-days - and there was a day last week when I'd sat down to a meal and picked up my knife and fork when the... More
