Found for us by tourist in formation at Wellington. Was clean but overall everything looked dated compared with other motels we had stayed in. Close to some restaurants and a 5 min drive to the railway station which was reason for visiting christchursch to go on Tranz alpine train ( amazing). Near to a busy road but did not bother... More

Very nice motel, rooms very clean and well set out, beds very comfortable. The Proprietors were very lovely people and very helpful. On a busy road but didn't notice any noise. Shops nearby and bus a 100 meters down the road. The only downside, which isn't very much really, is the single bed was up against the window so we... More

Clean and quiet even though it is on a busy road. Also handy to shops and not far from the CBD. Good parking right outside your room. We only spent one night there and it was quite adequate for our needs. There was a bed in the lounge which I slept in so I didn't have to listen to my... More

Positive side first, location wise, distance to the airport was good, 10 minutes drive only. Restaurants across the road, but there are a better selection about 3 min up Riccarton road. BUT, don't bother if you want a reasonably comfortable stay. We got put in the room right next to the road while the other rooms did not look occupied.... More

Christchurch Motel was one of the few motels where the hostess walked us right to the room and showed us in. She made us feel very welcome. The information booklet in the room gave very good directions on where to eat around the area. The large shopping mall, Westfield Riccarton is just an 8 minute walk away and there, you... More

Christchurch has got expensive after the earthquakes so it's great to finally find a motel that is still close to the city, really nice rooms AND affordable. Riccarton mall is walkable and it's very handy to the university. It's also on the bus route from the airport.

Check in was quick and easy and Terry was terrific, helpful and knowledgeable. room was big and well appointed. And despite being close to a main road it was very quiet. Good sized towels and nice shower. Would definitely stay here again

Stayed for 2 nights - after arrival from Christchurch airport & a day before departing NZ. Stayed in 2 different rooms, both were good. Rooms are clean, and fully equipped. I like the 'kitchen' the most. Can cook hot noodles anytime in the room. Few eateries nearby. Not many options though. Have to walk around 10 mins to the nearest... More

My family and I stayed for two nights in a two-bedroom unit and were very pleased we chose Christchurch Motel. The room was quiet and well-equipped. All aspects of the decor were modern and high-quality, with comfortable seating being provided. The bathroom had bench space for our things and the shower was fabulous. We will definitely stay at this motel... More

This motel is recommended as a place to stay. It is neat, clean, spacious, and a little up to date. The staff are very good and helpful. The price of this motel is a little below average as it is worth it for what this motel is. So if you do not have much to spend, stay here.
