A clean & tidy motel. Staff friendly and helpful . Parking a bit of a squash due to renovations . The only disappointment was the smoke alarm covered in glad wrap I guess done when they painted but had never been removed and unfortunately too high for me to get. Otherwise clean comfortable stay.

We got a nice 1 bedroom apartment for the price of a studio. It was very comfortable and had all that we wanted. It is at a walkable distance from Hagley Park. I would give it a 5 for everything but reduced cause there was no hob to cook.

We were really pleased with the friendly welcome we received from the manager, Neil. We were exhausted from our long drive, and he got us into our suite quickly. The one bedroom unit was updated with all the amenities we needed. Neil helped us find a great pub down the street (brewer's pub, I think. Good food and friendly people.)... More

I booked this accommodation in January 2014 when in Christchurch with my mum. She was visiting Christchurch with three sisters for Home and Garden tour. In January we were shown rooms 13 & 14 respectively and advised these would be the accommodation (so group were close together and had their own beds). However upon arrival the guests prior to them... More

The location is good and there are good eateries within walking distance. On the surface, the room is clean but the cupboards had cobwebs and some have obviously not been cleaned for quite a while. We wanted to have toast but the state of the toaster made us change our minds rapidly. It is comfortable enough but we have stayed... More
