Pleasantly surprised by this boutique (16 room) motel. Everything looks new, modern, large, well kept rooms. Staff was friendly and helpful. Good location, close to downtown and easy to get anywhere in and around Christchurch.

We arrived in Christchurch at 1am. After emailing ahead we were advised of a room number and told the procedure of how to get into the room after hours. They had put the heater on for us and had fresh milk in the fridge. They had also put us on the ground floor so it was easy to find when... More

My husband was scheduled for surgery at Forte Health Hospital and based on the Qualmark 5 star rating, the claim of luxury and the nearby location to the hospital we chose Salerno Motel Apartments. Our 1bedroom apartment was pleasant but to us far from 5 star or luxury. There was virtually no privacy. The lounge/kitchen area looked directly into the... More

They are 2 different room types, you did not... More

This was a lovely place to stay and the location was really good. The room was very warm and to an excellent standard. I was here for two days on a business trip and found it a pleasure to stay here, would definitely stay again

Sometimes you search WOTIF and book on price and you are never sure what you are going to get! This is a perfect score in these modern rooms with separate bedroom and spa bath! The motel is located on a main road nearly opposite a Thai take away, plenty of parking....the well heated room has sound proofing so once inside... More

This motel is well situated and despite it being on a main road we didn't find the traffic noise a problem. The room was spacious, very clean and the bed comfortable. I'm not a fan of the disability style bathroom as the floor tends to get wet all over, but I understand the practicality of having such a bathroom in... More

The Salerno Motel Apartments is well situated and although its on a busy road, the traffic noise was not a problem. The units were immaculate and very clean. The bed was VERY comfortable and the little kitchenette was very handy to make snacks and cups of coffee and tea. Everything was laid out well, the only problem I would have... More

We spent two nights at this motel and would have stayed another two had they not been booked out.. The man at reception was most pleasant and provided us with information on how to get around the city and the location of the local restaurants etc. Our studio unit was spotlessly clean with plenty of room for two, outside was...

The rooms are a great size, so much larger than most in Chch. Bathrooms were also large, bed was super comfortable which is a huge bonus. Location is good, close to the CBD and within walking distance to Hagley park. Great having a cookie time biscuit in the room every night :) Small desk for working on, good comfortable chairs....
