We stayed for a night before commencing our trip to Queenstown. After a long and arduous journey from Perth via Auckland, we arrived at 10 a.m. and asked if we could check in a bit earlier. The cleaner was manning the desk and said that even though the room was free, she would have to clean it and she had... More

We really surprised that you have left us this review because of we cannot check you in on 10 am in the morning!!! You arrived 10 am as you said, this is our check out time which means previous guests just checked out or may still in the room! We clearly state our check in time is **from 1 pm**(if... More

We are always on the lookout for a nice spa bath when we stay in a motel (usually we are campers.) We stayed in Unit 9 and did have a few issues with the spa. Parts of the jets fell off a couple of times, gooby black stuff & hair came out of some of the jets, and once we'd... More

Firstly, we thanks for your stay and definitely want to see you again. We clean our room with very high standard, unfortunately, inside of jets can not be reached, we highly recommend to flash the spa with cold water before you use it, also these jets are adjustable for the water pressure by turning them around, if you turn it...

We stayed here for one night. The motel is conveniently located, quiet (double glazed), comfortable, and clean. Good value for money. There is good parking right outside the units. We will stay here next time we need a bed in Christchurch.

Wish we could have stayed longer, but the staff was kind enough to wait a little later for us to arrive and we were greeted with "happy honeymoon!" The room was comfortable and the tub was EXCELLENT! Very quiet sleep and very cool to have washer access in the room.

It feels like a mini 1 BR apartment, it was very clean, and it is spacious. Soft, comfy bed. The entire studio is kept well in shape. Water kettle, dishes all clean. Granite (quartz) countertop. We liked it very much and would stay here again. It is located just a few, may be 3-4 blocks away from downtown where basically... More

Thanks for the stay, our wifi usage is actually 1GB rather than 200MB, may be you stayed a long time ago because 200mb was just our old setup and now it's all changed. More

Very clean and spacious room. Pleasant service at reception. Location on the edge of city very suitable for city access and visiting the surrounding areas. Washing machine availability is a bonus also.

Typical motel in a convenient location on the edge of the CBD (in Christchurch the CBD only partly exists after the 2010/2011 earthquake). Good level of cleanliness although the upholstery of the 2 sitting room chairs needed cleaning & there a few dark marks on grouting in bathroom. Cleaning & change of towels done daily. Queen bed is comfortable. Free... More

Stayed 3 nights in this motel in March 2015. Quite a nice motel, modern, just a few disappointing notes. Whoever had stayed prior to us had removed their sticking plaster in the shower and stuck it on the window frame where it remained the entire time we were staying! The hand & foot towels in the bathroom were tatty and... More

We came to Christchurch, NZ for the Cricket World Cup just this week and stayed at the Salerno. I enjoyed the room, bed, and cleanliness; however, be ware that there is no AC and it is on a very busy, noisy street. We came with 4 to our room and didn't think anything of telling the owner since we had... More

Guests booked a room for 2 and turned up with 4 people! We made very clear on all the booking websites that extra person in the room will result extra costs. They obviously knew this because when they checked in they told us they only have 2 people rather than 4, until we found out by checking the onsite security... More
