The Canterbury U/17 Boys Softball team stayed at this excellent Motel while the National U/17 tournament was held in Christchurch. Thanks to the fantastic experience we had staying here we won the tournament. The Management and cleaning staff looked after the boys, it helped us win the tournament.

Southern Comfort Motel looks like an average Motel from the outside. The room were above my expectations compared to other motels. We got a 400MB wifi voucher, but you can access the internet for free. Its working perfectly on computers, but very bad on all mobile devices. The pool and spa looks good, apparently it was just cleaned after someone... More

This hotel sadly left us very disappointed. Everything was falling apart. Hair dryer didn't work, tissue box falling off wall every time, the drain outside window was noisy and gurgling all night, the pool was closed and a very nasty shade of green and free Wi-Fi didn't work. Very unimpressed.

A group of us stayed in the 4 bedroom unit at this motel. This unit can sleep 8 but the very small lounge had a 4 seat dining table and a two seat couch. There were not enough glasses and plates and it was not very clean. The owners need to spend a lot of money to bring this place... More

Sadly this is not a great place. Though the woman serving us was pleasant. I could hear the people in the room above going to bathroom. Room next door I could hear people talking. First walked in to bathroom it smelled of old urine. And the toilet seat was so loose it kept moving completely to the side (the feel... More

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
