Motel is located on Bealey Ave which is a very busy main road. Road is quite noisy so ask for a rear room if possible. I was in room 14 which was upstairs and the furtherest from the road. Room has free wi-fi for 2 devices,basic kitchen facilities. Speights Ale House is just a few minute walk along the road.... More

Can't speak highly enough of Andy the owner. I arrive from Aussie at about 1.30 in the morning on my 6 monthly business trip to NZ and he has left my room unlocked and the heater on to warm up the room. The rooms are spotless and serviced daily. There is a kitchenette in each room so you can self... More

We stayed for three nights (May 2015). The room included a kitchen area which we used to self-cater in the evenings. The shower room/toilet was clean and modern, the bed was very comfortable. The wall heater warmed the room up quickly when needed. Flat screen TV with all local channels & 3 Sky channels. The room was serviced each day,... More

I won't write too much. Sadly beds and pillows quite hard and uncomfortable making for a tired body in the morning. Very loud traffic noise through the night. The manager at reception was off puting and disinterested in us. We won't return. The room was okay.

We needed somewhere to stay for our last night in Christchurch. Our hosts were friendly and helpful. The room and kitchen and bathroom facilities were clean and fresh, just perfect for tired travellers. This motel is in a great location, we were easily able to walk into and around the central part of beautiful Christchurch. It was a short walk... More

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 The hotel was somewhat outdated but the beds were fine and the food at the restaurant was fine as well.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.
