Northcote Motor Lodge, Christchurch is well located. It’s near the Northland Mall and the city center and also close to the airport. The team which runs it is warm and friendly. The rooms are well appointed and functional. Recommended.

Stayed here one night when we came to Chch to pick a car up as it was located close by, we stayed at another much more expensive hotel the next 2 nights and was really disappointed we left... the Owners were very friendly, helpful and accommodating, the motel itself was clean, spacious, comfortable bed, and despite being next to a...

I was fortunate enough to stay at this motel for 4 nights in January and cannot praise Morag, Dave and the team enough for the quality of both the accommodation and service I received. From the moment I arrived the hospitality I received was at a very high standard and the whole team were lovely to deal with I found... More

We had to overnight in Christchurch with two doggies so I had to find pet friendly accommodation. Well, I don't think I could have chosen better! We stayed in a standard studio apartment which was very roomy and very clean. The bonus was that this studio (and the others in the same block) had a back door which led straight... More

This is a very conveniently located hotel, and although on the older side has everything you need for a great stay in Christchurch. Our unit was spacious, the facilities great (with kitchen provided) and the owners are lovely and very accommodating. Unfortunately I can't give this review 5 stars as the bed was the worst I've slept in in ages,... More

Northcote. Check in was standard parking is high. We only had a Camry and if the hotel was full would have found it difficult to park. Room was clean and had a small kitchenette with enough to cook with. Room was clean and the beds good. The outlook was onto suburbia, petrol station one side homes to the other. Supermarkets...

I stayed here while up in christchurch for a concert. I picked Northcote as it was pet friendly and I wanted to take my dog. I phoned to make my booking as I wanted to just ensure "Stella" would be okay coming to stay with them. Morag was great and told me where would be a good place to park.... More

Northcote Motor Lodge is a great example of a classic New Zealand motel - for all the right reasons. We were a group of two couples and booked a one night stay here prior to taking an long haul flight from Christchurch International Airport. The lady (manager/owner I think?) that checked us in was friendly and helpful and provided us... More

Bed was fine for me though a tad hard for the other half. room was very clean and well presented and cleaning staff... More

We were visiting Christchurch for a funeral and were there just one night. The unit was clean and tidy, and we were welcomed by a woman standing-in for the owners. The big disappointment was the bed - definitely past its use by date, and it would have benefited from a mattress topper if management not able to replace the mattress.... More

Thank you for taking the time to pass on your comments after your stay with us. We try to accommodate everyone but tastes are different and most responses were favourable of the beds so didnt realise they could be hard. However, we have purchased some mattress toppers now and have them on some beds. I hope the rest of your... More
