Beds in lounge with small kitchen at one end and bathroom to the side. The towels were small and quite grey looking, very old and tired - meant to be white. Hated that there was no soap, just liquid... More

I was in Christchurch during the working week and my employer found me accommodation at this motel which is about 20 minutes walk from Riccarton Mall (or you can take a bus).

The couple that own and run this hotel would be the friendliest people I've come across, nothing was an issue for them and they're incredibly helpful. The rooms are nice and clean and have all the facilities you need, it was a great place to stay.

I enjoyed my stay here, the room was clean and tidy, the service very good and the location excellent as I was visiting a daughter at University. Parking was very convenient, and an unrestricted heater kept me warm on a minus 4 degree night.

Upstairs had a bed in the landing and a separate bedroom which was again huge. There was a full bathroom up here... More
