Ok so the rooms are ok in appearance and on par for a motel as I am discovering on my many visits to such places this year. However this has been without doubt the most uncomfortable and noisy night I have had ever, and I have stayed in some places! We stayed in room 7 and were there as a... More

Stayed in an apartment, 4 of us for 2 days. Very clean, spacious, big comfortable beds. Bathroom spacious and shower hot with good water pressure. Fully equiped kitchinette. Not a great selection on TV channels but they offer 250MB free internet. If you want more there are plenty if options to choose from, paid for. Great location, on the main... More

Advertised as at least four star but did not meet that expectation. Very dated and lacked comfort in the form of uncomfortable chairs to rest in and the bed very very hard. Once in bed you could feel the electric blanket wiring as it was directly under the sheet. That coupled with the very hard bed made sleeping near impossible.... More

Stayed for one night after moving from the Roma next door (no vacancy for another night). Although it was only ten am, the owner Gerry, let us move in right away. Much appreciated. The room (#5), a studio on the ground floor, was very clean, spacious and well laid out. A large window above the kitchenette looking out to the... More

Room is spacious enough, clean but very modest. Separate bedroom was supposed to have a king but had a queen size bed?? It's annoying not getting what you believe you are booking. The room had a microwave, two hot plates, fridge and decent TV channel selection. Free wifi is for 250MB - various pay plans after that. This place is... More

We didn't arrive to chch until 10pm but this was not a problem for the hosts of the hotel. They organised a late check in for us and even left a lovely note on our table wishing us a good sleep. They must have known that a good sleep was definitely in order! Nice unit and modern. Very tidy. Just... More

As far as motels go this was OK - comfy bed, good shower and clean. Be aware though Riccarton St is a major rd and unless u r at back of the property the road noise is intrusive. Lots of good places to eat close by including Dux Dining 50m up the road who open at 7am for breakfast.

I recently took a trip to Christchurch for three days and spent the two nights at the Annabelle Court Motel. The booking in was easy and sufficient. The access to everything in Christchurch is superb. Within walking distance of the motel are plenty of quality restaurants and cafes where breakfast, lunch and dinner is served. Highly recommend a stay there!
