Rather tired motel, old room décor. Was close to the airport and within walking distance of restaurants but I thought rather overpriced in comparison to other hotels I stayed in in the area. Staff were friendly and good wifi. But I wouldn't stay here again at the price I paid.

$195 a night for a 2 bedroom unit. The fan heater could not keep the place close to warm. This is a very tired old motel. Have to say I felt completely scammed by the individuals who left good reviews and the management who clearly know better. As I reread other reviews there is a pattern here of motel owner... More

Following my previous review (months ago) I received a phone call today from the business owner. He started by saying that I had left something at the hotel and continued by saying that my "lies" on tripadvisor were "absolute sh**". He added that I was a "low life" and how dare I leave a bad review. So add to my... More

We recently stayed 6 nights at Belle Bonne and found the unit ideal for a longer stay. The unit was quiet and roomy, it was very clean and tidy and all amenities were provided to ensure our stay was most comfortable. The full kitchen is certainly a bonus, along with the fast Wifi and excellent service. The only complaint we... More

We stayed 3 nights, 3 adults and 2 kids. We found the place very homely and nice. Service was excellent. Trampoline and swings were enjoyed by our kids and the balcony was great size. It was everything we needed and we found it very reasonably priced. We stayed there Feb 2013. Thank you :)

Our room had clearly not been cleaned recently with cob webs across the room, thick dust everywhere and the musty smell that suggested it hadn't had fresh air for years. $145 per night was definitely too much! Not recommended at all.

KB, We absolutely refute your claims of the unit no 8 that it was dirty, smelly , had thick layers of dust and cobwebs everywhere. I know how fastidious our cleaners are especially with vacuuming on every departure, even if guests have stayed only one night. As for dust, well the cleaning ladies go over the top with their dusting... More

We needed somewhere for the 6 of us to rest our heads on the last night of our 2 week holiday. We made a mistake with our booking which they graciously took in their stride, were helpful with taxi bookings to the airport, and everything else we needed. It was service with a smile and while it may not be... More

We stayed here for 7 nights due to EQC repairs. We found the place lovely and warm. Owners were very friendly and accommodating. Nice and quiet considering it is placed on a main road. Close to a huge selection of restaurants. Reasonably priced for a two room.

The motel is old and needs refreshing however the owners are very welcoming and hospitable. There is reduced choice in Christchurch due to the earthquake and we found that every motel along yaldhurst rd was booked out. We paid $185 for the two bed apt for the one night.

Stayed here for 2 nights, it was quite a lot of money compared to other motels I've stayed at (which were better). The room was a mini apartment with a lounge, kitchen, bathroom and bedroom. It was very dated and could use a re-vamp, but they have brand new widescreen TV's which doesn't really match up. They said they have... More

Thanks SB1508 for your comments. We must take issue with some of them as they are totally incorrect. Our Two bedroom Family units are considered to be on the large side for NZ classification and not at all ''mini'. Secondly we do not charge for the first 2 hours of Internet usage , so if you would like to email... More
