We used to live in Christchurch so know the area well. We chose this motel as the location suited us for visiting family, restaurants etc. Checkin was quick and easy. The motel unit was comfortable and clean. Even though we were close to the main road our room was very quiet. It suited our needs well.

This is a very clean and modern motel, and in a very good location. We walked into Merivale for a great Italian meal (see my review for Molto Bene) and were also a short walk from number one on TA eatery in Christchurch, Pedro's House of Lamb which was great! We also walked into the CBD, around 20-30 minutes leisurely... More

Our choice of accommodation in Christchurch. Hosts are very accommodating and do a wonderful job. Units are beautifully presented. Beds are comfortable and a great selection of channels on the television. Suitable for professionals and families. Bathrooms are lovely. Centrally located and don't notice traffic from rooms. Highly recommend!

I had requested a downstairs unit with two beds and those were provided. It was comfortable and warm and had everything we needed. I... More

We booked into Milano for 3 nights a couple of weeks before our stay. The new owners said they had been there for a week and a half. I became ill on the second day of our stay and advised we would be checking out after only two nights as I wanted to get home. I was advised of their... More
