Had a comfortable stay for 2 nights. Had a large room with good facilities and a free newspaper. The hostess was very friendly and helpful. The Motel was relatively close to the airport and made it easy to return our hire car and get to the airport. Plenty of parking space.

I had to stay in Christchurch for work for two weeks and my company booked me in here. I had a one bedroom unit. It was very clean and well set up with good cooking facilities. The daily room service was to a high standard and the owners were very friendly and helpful. I managed to injure my ankle at... More

Clean and tidy. The bed was hard and the pillows low and firm. The curtains needed have backing on them. The lights from outside lit the room up at night. Had a lousy sleep for two nights. Had no air conditioning , either too hot or too cold.

We had a large 1 bedroom unit for 1 night. It was very clean, very comfortable bed,a great shower- all we required. The hostess was exceptionally friendly , spent time chatting and created a good impression. Would certainly return.

The accommodation was clean, tidy and well situated to public transport and local shops. The accommodation is well priced and great value for money. The owners were very hospitable and went out of their way to help us during our stay.

Stumbled upon the place and was impressed by the frontage but found it to be a little dated at the back despite its 10 years of operation. Lady / owner at the front desk was personable and very obliging and keen to go the extra mile for me – all I had to do was ask - she was a... More

Spacious units, well presented and clean, but the experience was spoilt by the management. Felt as though we were given the 10 th degree, and reading other reviews it appears that we are not alone with that experience. Made for an unwelcome feeling, and there's plenty of other options out there.......

Originally, I was looking for a basic motel that would be an easy drive to the airport. Papanui Court Motel does the trick and more. The first thing that impressed me was how substantial the furniture and fixtures felt, giving a sense of quality to the place. Although it has a simple decor, the place was spotlessly clean. The bath... More

I feel a bit bad giving it 3/5 seeing as most are 5 and 4, and there was nothing really wrong with the place. The proprietors are nice, things look fairly new, and everything worked as it should. However there was no real X-factor, and little drawbacks such as the balcony being uncovered and quite narrow (really it's just a... More

We stayed in Christchurch one night when arriving NZ and one night before leaving NZ. We are the first timer for NZ. We rent motorhome to travel to Dunedin/Queenstown/Mt.Cook, but we stayed in hotel/holiday parks as it's too cold for me and my wife to stay overnight in motorhome. We stayed at Papanui Court the night before we left. We... More
