Needed a room for one night that could accomadate 4 adults. Clean and tidy and comfortable. Close to the central city. Only negative is the small and tight car parking if you don't get in early you miss out , and parking on the main road is not an option. Will definately stay again

We stayed here for the last few days of our NZ trip and found the facilities were good and the added bonus of a washing machine and dryer was great to go home with a clean suitcase, although, they take a long time to dry. Bed was comfy and bathroom clean, my only complaint would be that the clean linen... More

Have stayed here last 3 visits to Christchurch and will return next time. I am here for work every 2-3 months and this place good. Clean, tidy, comfortable with modern decor. Top of Papanui Road so close to all things necessary. Wifi good and fast, Sky Television with multiple channels. Will definitely be back as moderately priced and good value... More

We stayed at the Delago for one night on our way out of the country after a 12 day South island stint. It was clean, convenient and the staff was helpful in checking us in and giving us directions for places to go to. It's a short drive from all the central locations and would recommend to others. Though we... More

I stayed here for one night as needed to stay near the CBD. Location is great with lots of great bars and restaurants close by. The motel was really good - rooms were clean, spacious and had everything that I wanted for my short stay. Great comfortable beds. A slight downside was the small sized flat screen TV. Great value...

I cant comment on the actual stay as we booked this motel for friends of friends for 2 nights. I made the booking through Booking.com. I was surprised to see that I had been charged for 1 night when the booking was made through Booking.com and 1 night was charged on departure. I queried this and was told by the... More

Its misleading as it said a Two room set with one spa and we booked it. It turned out that it had only one Bathroom and there was a small spa in it. The second room was tiny and the Bedd covered it all There was barely space to walk. It had a very tight outdoor parking space and had... More

Room was clean, well heated and bright. Free wifi with the room and reception were always helpful. Arrived after reception was closed, and they had arranged for us to access out room and check in the following day. Would revisit.

This is a pleasant Motel with very helpful owners. ( note) the motel has just been sold. I stayed the first night in a 2 bed unit upstairs and the last 2 in a studio upstairs. The reason I changed was the incessant road noise as the motel is situated on the very busy Papanui Rd close to the major... More
