We stayed at the Milano lodge for 2 nights at the end of March. This establishment is run by 2 of the nicest people you could ever hope to meet. Jocelyn and Murray went out of their way to help us I every way. The 1GB of data they give you is the most we've received the whole time we've... More

I spent a lovely 8 days staying in the care of Jocelyn & Murray.The bed was very comfortable & the room spotlessly clean.It was good to see the gardens & roses so well kept.It was my second visit here. The motel was fully booked all the time |I was there so that is a good recommendation.

Milano Motor Lodge is a wonderful place to stay and feel 'at home' in Christchurch. The rooms are clean, well presented and tastefully decorated.

So pleased you felt at "home" that makes us happy. We are certainly in a great location for everything and your comments about two of our favourite eating places are so true. Pedro's lamb melts in your mouth and St Germaine's is wonderful for guests looking for a special dine out experience. Your remarks are well thought out and will... More

Hello, we are a family of 5. The host were very friendly and accommodating. The unit was reasonably modern, spacious, tidy and clean. It was quiet and restful even though it was on the main road. It was on the expensive side though. Decent value.

Thank you for taking the time to review our motel, it was a pleasure to have you stay with us. We are extremely lucky that although we are on a main road, we aren't troubled too much by noise. The two bedroom apartment which you had being down the back does allow for a very quiet, private stay. We look... More

We had unit 7 with the spa bath. Well worth while. The unit was very comfortable and the host very good. The location is great and just a short walk to a good cafe, de spa chocolates and just a big further along to the Merrivale mall.
