when booking online I should have checked out some reviews, fortunately I was only booked in for one night $100. Staying in the middle of winter my first room was freezing and stunk, obviously why all its windows were left open. The furniture was covered in stains while the carpet was also. The room was very dated. I than asked... More

Handy to everything. Very tidy units. Great price. No complaints. Not much road noise. Hosts were very friendly. Good parking. Free laundry facilities. Hardly any noise from other guests. Stayed three nights. Room servicing daily to high standards. Happily recommend.

Glad we only stayed one night here as the carpets were really stained and the room just felt unclean. The shower felt as though you were going to fall through it and the free wifi that is advertised is so slow it won't even load an internet page. Overall we were disappointed with the stay at this place, however it... More

While this motel wasn't super modern, it was comfortable and fine for our needs. Despite being on the main road it was pretty quiet which was good, and the location close to the Westfield Riccarton, city centre and the airport was good. The easy access to the laundry was great also.

The owner was very accommodating as had to change to next night due to having to stay in hospital an extra night. Quiet location but some areas needed attention in the cleaning department. Good location Bed very uncomfortable and a bad nights sleep

We were flying out of wellington to christchurch but due to fog closing Wellington airport we had to cancel our booking. We expected to loose some of our money but they refused any refund which I think is totally unreasonable and not good business practice as it was totally out of our control. Wouldn't recommend anyone book with them

Check in was simple and efficient with the people on the counter helpful. We stayed for one night and spent most of our time out and about. The location is excellent, an 8 minute walk to Riccarton mall. The beds in the main are fine but if you have a third person the fold out sofa bed is a shocker,... More

There were a number of motor lodges around. What sealed the deal was the free wifi and guest laundry services. This being the last leg of our travel, we were taking a more leisure pace. The free wifi was great as it kept our boys entertained with their mobile devices. We also made use of the laundry services which were... More
