We stayed here 3 nights when we first arrived in Christchurch . The rooms are very clean and tidy and the gardens are nice with a beautiful tree that you can sit under and have your breakfast. It is in walking distance to shops and restaurants and I would definitely stay here again .

We stayed here for 7 days and one of the reasons I booked this place is because it advertised "free internet/wifi". Even their sign outside advertised this. However, I found myself having to ask the owner time and time again to restore my access as apparently, we are only limited to 2GB. This may be enough for some, but when... More

Milano Motor Lodge is an ideal location for central city and Merivale Mall, which has a number of good restaurants and bars. The room itself was quiet which I didn't expect being on the bottom floor. The room and bathroom was spacious and super clean. Lovely toiletries on offer as well as loads of sachets of tea, coffee, etc. The... More

Great value place to stay. Close to everything central to Christchurch. Good array of local restaurants and close to the business sector. Very polite and obliging staff. We booked a one bedroom suite and was very surprised with the space on offer. The bed quality was very good and a restful nights sleep was achieved. Great value.

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!

My mother had to visit St Georges Hospital last week for minor surgery and we stayed overnight in the Milano Motel on Papanui Road. It was perfect for our purposes - very handy to the hospital. 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
