The rooms are decent. No housekeeping. Stayed for 2 nights, came back after a day of sight seeing, the beds weren't made, only got new towels. No the usual bikkies you usually get from motels. Booked for 5 people, paid the 5th person, didn't get extra bed, like the other motels we stayed in during this trip. 5th person had... More

I visited abbey few times on business trip and found it met all my expectations as an over night stay. There is a full kitchen in the room, which is very convenient for traveling. Centrally located so it's an easy stroke to everywhere. Room is spacious and clean, good value for money.

This is not a luxury motel but it provides a well equiped kitchen, reasonable modern as you can see the owner has done lots of refurbishments. Still some repaire job outside to do 4 years after the earthquake, and some gardening would make the motel a bit better, but for what they charged me and what they provided, I have... More

We visited CHRISTCHURCH for 4 days for a conference in Oct, didn't know that CHRISTCHURCH is so short of accommodation during certain period that we booked an average hotel for over $200/ night for 2 of us, not only that we were told that they couldn't accommodate us as they over booked their room due to technical problem. Fortunate they... More

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights including a weekend. The room was comfortable and we were given an extra heater for the room which was great. Unfortunately the walls are thin and we could hear the blaring tv and music of the neighbours room and their door opening and shutting. This may not seem unreasonable but we... More

I stayed in this motel whilst on a road trip (motorcycling) recently - I was cold and wet and arrived into town rather later than I had anticipated so stopped in to see if they had a room - I was offered a room at the book price which I refused as it was late and I felt I could... More

This is a good value motel with spacious, clean accommodation. Bealey Avenue is a main artery within the city and as such it is convenient but can be noisy during the night. Some rooms are better than others having been upgraded more recently

I had a pleasant enough stay on my 2 nights at Abbey Motor Lodge. There is some renovating going on so the place, at least from the outside isn't in tip top shape. But it's hardly enough to turn one off staying there. What matters most of course are the state of the rooms, and i found them to be... More
