We stayed here for 2 nights during February when travelling on Kiwi Scenic Rail and really appreciated the free pickup by Andy from Christchurch Station (even although the train was very late both times) on 2 separate occasions and the free shuttle to the station in the morning. The owners couldn't have been more helpful and pleasant and made our... More

This motel was not your standard modern motel with square rooms and modern furniture. This was a motel with character and slightly older, but very clean and comfortable. We had great fun pulling out different shelves in the kitchen to find a fold away ironing board, or a chopping board. The kitchen was large and fully equipped; separate toilet and... More

Had a great 2 night stay here. The room was large enough for 4 adults to occupy quite comfortably. It was well equipped with all the facilities you could possibly need. The kitchen was of a decent size and had an additional larger basin which is ideal for doing some washing if so desired. The beds were comfortable and plenty... More

Clean, well presented for an older establishment, handy to train and eateries, owners sorted out free pickup and drop off to station. Comfortable and reasonably priced. Very friendly and obliging. Recommend highly for budget conscious travellers.

Complimentary pick-up to the train station and return is a good but make sure you make arrangements for it with the motel manager before you arrive. Free Internet access is a plus. The rooms are dated. Ice trays aren't provided, ask the owner for a cup of ice. Typical high priced restaurants serving mediocure food are within walking distance. Grocery... More

We stayed at this motel for 6 nights, and although it is quite dated, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The unit was clean, warm and very spacious, with a full kitchen and free internet. If we returned after 5pm each evening the lights and heater had been turned on, making it very welcoming. These units are run by a lovely... More
