This is a rather older motel, and my upstairs room had a slight feel of being tucked away in the attic. But had everything I needed for a comfortable three nights stay while visiting relatives in Christchurch.

The motel is about 20 minutes walk from Christchurch centre and about 10 minutes walk from a supermarket, a few restaurants and of course a fish and chip shop! Our room was on the first floor ( a bit of a haul with 2 suitcases), but was spacious and quiet. However, the bathroom was somewhat smelly (the toilet was so... More

Our room was away from the road which was nice. It was in a more quiet area of the motel. But the internet was quite slow (too slow), the walls were very thin, and the room smelt like macaroni cheese.

The rooms are spacious and very well appointed. A TV in the main room and in the master bedroom make relaxing enjoyable no matter which room is chosen. The kitchen is fully appointed and good size for the room. There is even a fold out bed if needed. The bathroom though with its "wet floor" shower needs a little work.... More

I booked this hotel for my trip to Christchurch. It's relatively unscathed although Christchurch was devastated by the recent quake. There is a small kitchenette with an electric hotplate and cooking utensils that enables us with ease of cooking and a grocery store nearby. We were booked in a room entitled a 'suite' but it's far from being a regular... More

Our room No 6 was downstairs and as soon as we opened the door we smelt dampness as though a drain was leaking for a long time. The bathroom needs renovating, the corners were dirty. The bed was uncomfortable but the laundry was clean and plentiful. My relations stayed upstairs and their room was bright and airy. We stayed here... More

Overall a great hotel (about 15 min walk from CBD) but could use a few tiny tweaks to make it even better. We had a cute little studio for 3 nights. It was well worth the price (much cheaper than in Australia) & we were surprised by the little touches, like a jug of milk in the fridge (re-fills cost... More

We had room #7 when we arrived. We walked in and were handed a key to the room. When we opened the room, it had a really bold mold and mildew scent. It was "one of those" motels that I didn't feel comfortable walking around the room without my shoes on. The room was appeared clean, with the exceptional stains... More

We were upgraded to one bedroom suite prior to arrival, and the owners and staff were consistently helpful, friendly, and efficient. Extras included free newspaper delivered daily, well equipped kitchen which included a new pack of ground coffee everyday! the location was quiet, and free laundry was a great added bonus. Will definitely use again at our next stay. We... More

We were booked into this motel for Easter. On arrival we were given a run down studio apartment with a grotty looking bathroom, rusted microwave and a jug of milk in the fridge that could have been there for days!!! We told the owner we were not happy - he showed me two larger rooms which he wanted $170.00 for... More
