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

Very clean, Comfortable and modern room with everything you need and mine also had a lovely jacuzzi bath! Decent price compared to other others. It is on a very busy road so you do get some road noise. The advertised free wifi was a large factor in my decision to choose this property over others but it is limited to... More

Thanks for your stay and we think there is might be an misunderstanding for using the internet here, our internet code can be used up to 3 devices rather than 1 and you don't have to pay extra for using more than 1 device. More

This review has been updated to reflect email from property owner. My cousin and I stayed here for 2 nights, including Christmas Eve. We arrived at this property at around 8pm, close to closing hours for the office. The person available to check us was very new (as explained by the owner in response to the initial review posting). There... More

Thanks for your stay, unfortunately that we did not meet your special request of 2 single beds, because not all the room beds can be split up to 2 singles and this is only subject to the availability (we listed this on all the booking websites), we are motel with limited amount rooms and sometimes we just struggle to meet...

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.
