Stayed three nights. The units were a good size, clean with everything you need. So handy to central city also bus stop outside the property. Gardens and flowers were delightful all staff friendly and helpful.

We have stayed here before back in October and more recently last week with my in-laws. We were impressed with the size, cleanliness and proximity of the motel to both the center of Christchurch and Merivale Mall. The staff were also extremely helpful and made our stay worthwhile. We would thoroughly recommend this motel to anyone who wants to visit... More

We booked the Executive Unit as it has an upstairs stand alone unit with its own private balcony. However the balcony overlooks other units so it's not as private as we expected though the balcony is not shared with any other units. It was enjoyable to sit on the balcony to have breakfast and again in the evening for a... More

Value for money. Very clean, and comfortable. Only downside was that there was no three point plug in the bathroom so I could use my hair dryer.. Just as well I take an extension cord with me. The nearest 3 point plug was in the living area, but sadly no mirror, only mirror is in the bathroom. Would definitely stay... More

We stayed at this motel recently while visiting Christchurch with our dog for him to attend specialist treatment. We found this motel to be extremely clean and tidy while in a very good central location near town. We were very impressed and would recommend to others!

Actually, I have typed this review at Booking.com. But I guess, they deserve another review to be written here! Booked a one bedroom apartment for a 1 night stay and they were kind enough to upgrade to a 2 bedroom for the same price as the one bedroom! Really kind people and the room was just awesome! Toilet was spacious... More

Nice room with helpful service from owner. Surprised that unit was so quiet considering it was on Papanui Road. Nice clean 2 bedroom unit. Not a large lounge area but we are never in our unit for long during the day. Would definitely revisit

I could not be happier with the service and room quality at the Strathern Motor Lodge. As a walk in staying an extra night in Christchurch as part of an extended stag do the lady at reception could not have been more helpful. The room was lovely, the bed was very comfortable, the wifi was fast and the location was... More
