Hosts were very friendly and helpful and rooms were spotlessly clean. The owners let me clean my car with their hose and equipment and the rooms were blissfully quiet. Not far from the centre of town.

The Strathern Motor Lodge has been my home away from home for nearly 4 years. Craig, Lauraine and Bobby the dog are wonderful hosts, ably assisted by Chris & Rick, and always go out of their way to help with any query or special request. The units are well maintained and beautifully decorated. The standard has been exceptional even during... More

I am ashamed that I have not posted a review before. Stayed there in two periods in Aug 2013 and again in November 2013. Craig and Lauraine, Rick and Chris, Kate and Bobby, all were just drop-dead helpful and kind, went the extra mile (sorry, kilometre). Just perfect. Clean, comfortable, reasonable price, breakfast great, Made me feel better than being... More

Greeted by very friendly & accommodating hosts. Even reminded me that motor racing was on Sky TV when she noticed me wearing a motor sport cap. In spite of being on a busy road my room was surprisingly quiet. My only suggestion would be a coat hook for my toiletry bag. Happily go back to the Strathern Motor Lodge next... More

Beautifully decorated and equipped with all you could want. The owners are very thorough and concerned that you have a good stay - and I did. There is a little concern with the thin walls to the next motel but this did not worry me. Well worth the stay.

We stayed in a two bedroom unit for four nights. Hosts were extremely accommodating and extended us much kindness and hospitality during our stay. Location is great, room was well provisioned with kitchenwares, it was clean, warm and comfortable.

The owners are what makes this place great. After arriving into chch at 5am following a death in the family I arrived to see if it was possible to check in early and it was no problem at all. It was still dark outside and the let me have my room so I could freshen up. The rooms are lovely... More

we have stayed here twice now, the last time was 5th & 6th June. The proprietor is friendly and helpful, the rooms are VERY clean, with tasteful decor and bed covers.I have stayed at hotels, motels B&B and pensions all around the world, but this place would have to be one of the best for three main reasons. The glassware,... More

Christchurch hotels and motels are quite pricey so we were very pleased to find a good deal here. we booked a studio with twin beds but on arrival we were upgraded to a one bedroom suite which was brilliant we...
