Denton Park is my usual overnight accommodation choice when flying into Christchurch & traveling south on business. The units are very spacious & clean & Blair is a very welcoming host. The motel is well located for dining options for a business traveler such as myself & Snafu bar is just round the corner. Unlimited wifi is great too. My... More

Blair and Shona are welcoming hosts at this small motel, next to Highway 1 on the southern edge of the city. The one bedroomed apartment was a good size with Sky / Fox television and unlimited free WiFi - invaluable. The apartment was spotlessly clean and well equipped with two hob plates, micro wave oven and fridge. The bed was... More

Nothing was too much trouble and the people were lovely and friendly. At last moment we needed to go from a studio unit to a 1 bedroom with an extra bed in the lounge and nothing was a problem. It was clean and comfortable. The only (small) thing was the heater was on a timer and it was a cold... More

This motel is definitely run by the owners and this shows in all aspects of the business they run, i.e. from the friendly voice on the phone along with the friendly welcome at reception, the cleanliness of the units, plus going the extra mile to accommodate the needs of guests. Our stay was a particularly cold night and the heater... More

He was very helpful and welcoming. The motel location is great, close to several food and shopping outlets. I didn't even... More

Very friendly staff, great location and very clean rooms. Easy to find with good links to all the main roads in Christchurch. Good parking too, great place if you have business in the Hornby part of Christchurch.
