My husband and I stayed here for two nights. We found the room to be lovely and clean. The bed was super comfortable. It was warm and well appointed, however I would add that the area from the kitchenette onwards through to the bathroom, toilet area was rather tired looking and had definitely seen better days. A little 1980's sort... More

Hotel is situated on a quiet side street rather than the busy main road lined with most hotels for this region. Big clean well appointed rooms, friendly owners and moderate price make staying here good value. Is double storey so can maybe choose your upstairs/dwnstirs preference when booking.

This Motel is in a quiet road opposite the University of Christchurch. It is also close to Riccarton Mall and Hagley Park. It is clean and well appointed and the staff are welcoming and helpful. No noise from traffic.

Very convenient motel; easy to get to from airport; spacious in that 1980's kind of way. Not the Hilton but if that's what you want then the price is the give away. Quiet leafy street. Kitchen well stocked with utensils if you need to stay a while. Suited us perfectly and the staff/owners were really friendly, relaxed and helpful. Only... More

After a long day riding in the middle of winter arriving at Academy Motor Lodge was fantastic. Despite some of the other guests looking down their noses at me (something I am used to as a motorcyclist) I was welcomed by the owner who smiled broadly and used my name to great me. The room I had pre booked was... More

Hi, we didnt expect much to be honest as the reviews indicated. We wanted a two bedroom apartment to accommodate an early flight out of CC to Sydney. Got what it said we would get. No luxuries. Good shower though. Clean and tidy. Abit far out of the way to walk for some food. Didnt think the price reflected but... More

LOUD. We did get the room closest to the road, but with only single pane windows, it was like the cars were in our room. We could also clearly hear anyone in the parking lot, and the trash collection came at 7am and definitely woke us. Also, the bed was rather springy, and it seems they turned a 2 bedroom... More

The hosts were helpful and friendly, but the room was very small with no ability to sit and relax in the evening before going out. We kept tripping over each other. The bed was comfortable and the location quiet

We spent one night here at the start of the year and stayed in a lovely two-bedroom apartment.The apartment was nice and big and was able to accommodate five of us comfortably. It also had excellent cooking facilities. The location was very close to the airport, making it perfect for our early morning flight. The hotel managers were very helpful... More
