The hotel rooms are spacious and do the job for a short stay. I would not recommend for a long stay. About 20min walk to Victoria street where there are a few places to eat. The hotel food is high priced but nothing to right home about. Long term staff are helpful & courteous however backpacker staff seem to not... More

I stayed in this hostel 1 night prior to my Contiki tour of the south island. The hotel was somewhat outdated but the beds were fine and the food at the restaurant was fine as well. The location was good, close-ish to the aiport. Overall a fine stay for a motel.

We booked this room in conjunction with our trip to Christchurch for the Bob Dylan concert. We had a quick check-in and were pleased to be on the upper level. Although our unit was the closest to the road there was very little road noise that night, nothing to keep us awake. We experienced no parking issues - there were... More

Very clean and tidy unit with all we needed for a 3 day stay. Quiet room that was serviced each day. Close to southern cross hospital. Very helpful management, even moved his own car onto the street so we could park in car park at 10.30 at night. Would recommend this to others.

Not a bad little motel. It's a little out of town so keep that in mind. There are car park spaces but possibly not enough for every unit. My room was clean and well presented. There was a small kitchenette area with a hob and microwave. The bed was very comfortable; extra pillows and blankets in the cupboard. The bathroom... More

I stayed at the motel for one night and it was not a particularly pleasant stay. Here are my notables: Customer Service: Zero customer service. The attendant at the reception desk couldn’t even bother to say hello to us. He basically tossed the key in our direction and left. Room: Clean but outdated. The room was a decent size. Bathroom:...

Booked one night here - large room with en suite - a very nice lady brought our breakfast to our door in the morning - lovely and a lot of it. Great service from Bealey Motel. Would definitely recommend it. They answered all our questions - very helpful.

My husband and I spent two nights in this Bealey Avenue motel. It is very clean and tidy, its rooms are quite spacious and the kitchen is fully equipped. It is 10 minutes´ walk to the downtown area, we didn´t have a car and didn´t need to. If you are travelling with a car, there are quite a few parking... More

We arrived at Bealey Avenue after a long journey from Amsterdam through Seoul and Auckland to Christchurch to start our journey through New Zealand. From the airport of Christchurch a bus goes to Bealey Avenue. It doesn't stop in front of the hotel. It's about a 10 minute walk (with heavy luggage). Bealey Avenue is a very nice place to... More
