We stayed here for one night. There were 6 adults and two 5 year-olds. We were all quite content in a 4 bedded unit. The rooms may be a bit dated, but the beds are comfortable. The staff are friendly and management are very helpful. They sent the stuff we had left behind, on to us. No-one complained of road... More

I have stayed here three times in the last couple of years, most recently on 29th March 2015. This motel is just a short walk to many restaurants and the Christchurch Casino. It is a bit old but in great order, comfortable and economic with a decent sized TV. (We paid NZ$135 for a studio that had balconies north and... More

Because of missing luggage from our flight to Christchurch we decided to stay one extra night in town as arrangements were made by the airline to attempt gettting the bag, which had been left in Sydney, after being checked in, to us. But there was no room available at the place we had stayed the previous night, and in fact... More

A nice little motel, friendly & helpful owners, rooms a bit dated but still comfortable. Only criticism is there's no cooling, but we had an upstairs rooms so just opened a few windows and that took care of it. About a 30 minute walk from Christchurch cithy centre, and 10 minutes from a few decent restaurants.

We stayed here for 2 nights and found it to be in a easy central location with all the facilities you need. Clean, plenty of facilities, and close to food outlets. Had no problems, friendly and helpful staff =)

Location, value and comfort faultless! No hesitation to stay here again. Very friendly and welcoming reception from Bob. Easy walk to parks, gardens, museum and local restaurants. Handy to Merivale Mall.

The older exterior hides a renovated interior. Spacious and clean. Friendly and helpful staff. The kitchenette handy with china, cutlery and saucepans. Local food outlets nearby. Go to Keo Thai, yummy food. Burger King has cheap breakfasts just a hop, skip and jump from the motel.

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
