We arrived very late at night and were pleased to find accessing our key easy and quick. The heater was left on for us ensuring a cosy warm welcome. Beds were comfy, shower lovely and hot and the entire unit was clean and well laid out for its size .Our studio room had 1 queen and 1 single which did... More

Nice rooms, quiet, off the main road,they are quite small though. No cooking facillities in our room,but not far away from food.. Cutest cat that is very friendly. Close to the airport, which is great for early flyers. Friendly owner too, makes you feel very welcome. Would certainly return.

Stayed the night before we flew to Aus and then again the night we arrived back at midnight. Room cosy and warm both nights and being able to leave car for a minimal fee was just the icing. Lynne dropped us at airport on our way out thank you again Lynne.

Nice room. A bit small but just for a night is OK. Really close to the airport, about 5min by car and close to places to grab something to eat. Petrol station closest to the airport is next door so, very handy if you are renting a car and need to fill up before returning it. I stay in plenty... More

Great place to get organized after landing in New Zealand. Lynn and Pandy go out of their way to be helpful. When my friend's bike arrived damaged and the cab didn't show, they took her to the bike shop so she could get it fixed before they closed. They let me store my bike bag for the entire two weeks...

We stayed at this lovely little motel when we arrived in Christchurch at the end of October. It was very clean, well presented and close to the airport. We were so impressed with both the room and service we booked again for two further nights at the end of our holiday. Management is very approachable and can not do enough... More

When accommodation in Christchurch is hard to come by this little motel is plenty adequate. Clean, tidy, with all your overnight needs. Very convenient to airport and free shuttle/ cheap taxi Service.

We stayed in the townhouse for a night in Nov 14. we were late for check in and Lynn was kind enough to provide phone assistance without charging us an admin fee. The townhouse is big, can comfortably accommodate 7 of us. Clean and well equipped. Location is excellent for us as we wanted it to be near the airport.... More

We had a late night arrival so was good due to closeness to the airport. After hours access to room key simple and easy. Would have liked the free shuttle bus to still be operating but cannot have everything. Room had everything you could require at a reasonable price. An overpowering smell of air freshner the only thing I did... More
