This hotel, when we first walked in had a smell of Asian food, but we opened the windows and when we returned the smell had dissipated, Overall the motel was clean, the bedroom and kitchenette area and had pretty much everything we wanted or needed in the room. The curtains however, are pretty thin and allows for the building lights... More

Enjoyed our stay here, freshly renovated room - very clean and comfortable and perfect location for city, park and the beautiful botanic gardens. Handy to very good restaurants. You will see us again next year. Thanks

Very beautiful, huge rooms with everything. Beautiful balcony, nice service. Only 5 minutes walk via Victoria street to the centre. Through the earthquake , the centre is really dead. In such moments, you realize how from one minute to another life can change.

Our room was very tired, almost scruffy, nice man who appeare to run the place though. Although the place appeared to have been redecorated since EQ, it was in need of an update. Its location is very good, we have stayed several times in the past but will probably bypass it in the future.

First time have ever stayed in a motel and had to ASK for enough plates, cutlery, and cups for the 4 people we had booked for. (The unit could sleep 5, what did they expect people to eat off/with?) Don't the cleaners CHECK these after each occupant?? Also toilet seat very wonky, shifted sideways as you sat...most disconcerting and uncomfortable.... More

This motel is in a good location with easy walking to bars and eateries and what was the CBD. The guy on the front desk was very friendly and helpful. Admittedly our motel room was a bit outdated and in need of a refresh, but as far as value for money and location, this motel is fine for a couple... More

Centrally located hotel with easy access to petrol station, restaurants and bus stop nearby. Clean room and bathroom with a well equipped kitchen. Friendly staff. Good value for money hotel. The heating worked well. Easily available parking. Limited internet / WiFi is a problem for international travellers.

The owner of this motel was lovely, very friendly and helpful, and the motel location was great.....but unfortunately the motel itself needs a bit of a revamp. Our room had a new bathroom sink and tiling around, but the floor tiles did not meet up with the sink! The curtains were tired, as was the bedspread and lounge, but having... More
