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

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.
