Enjoyed my stay here. My unit was spotlessly clean, nice large rooms, friendly staff, quiet, good size TV. Continental breakfast option available (pay by individual item) was a great idea and good value ... or McDonalds/McCafe is a two minute walk up the road. Everything I needed!

Driving from Dunedin this motel was on my route to the airport. Warm welcome and excellent unit. I was a little worried as the unit was right on the main road but it was amazingly quiet. Unit was well equipped and the bed was really excellent. Only one little moan...........the toilet paper. Not a cheap motel so really didn't expect... More

Great location for us since we were aiming for Hornby. Blair was a fabulous host, very friendly. Room surprisingly quiet since it was next to the main road. Very clean, good sized room and bathroom. Kitchen well equipped.

Spent three restful nights at the motel and from day one was presently surprised at how quiet it was even though the Main South Rd runs right past. Very helpful owners and the well appointed room was kept spick and span for me the whole time. No concerns at all. 300 meters from The Hub shopping centre in Hornby. A... More

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
