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

We had unit #1 which was a one bedroom, two twin bed apartment. Pros: Unlimited free wifi (though note asked to not download large files like movies). The unit was spacious. Kitchen included burners, microwave and fridge. Availability - we must have seen at least 20 no vacancy signs before coming across the Ascot Vale; not sure what was going... More

We booked in this place because there isnt many vacant rooms available in christchurch over the weekend. We just need a place to sleep for a night before heading to the airport early in the morning the next day. The place is small and narrow. Anything more than a midsize sedan car would be difficult to reverse out. Wherever i... More

We found the room in this hotel to be really dirty. We were able the write the word "dirty" in the grime on the wall in the lounge. The walls in the bedrooms were just as bad. My son found and old sock and some food wrappers under his bed. The bedding is old and dated and in desperate need... More

This property is in a handy location, with great shopping close by. However the road it is on is very busy, and the room I had was at the front and quite noisy. There is no double glazing. Rooms at the back of the property would probably be OK. The decor is dated and could do with a freshen up,... More
