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

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....

Stayed in a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom self contained apartment for one night - the room also had a pull out couch which we used for a fifth person. Lounge was a good size as were the bedrooms.

I went on business to Christchurch and stayed 5 nights at this place. Found it on the internet and wasn't disappointed at all, on the contrary.
