We had one of the newer rooms and it was well appointed and comfortable. Great for a one night stay. The only hassle we had was the shuttle service offered by the hotel did not show up and we had to jog to the train station with our luggage. The front desk is closed before 9am, and there was no...

We had stayed at Addington City Motel before and were looking forward to it. Since our previous visit Andy and Janice have carried out some improvements including new bedside lights and new bedding items. The overall effect was to enhance our stay at Addington, despite it being very cold during some of the days we spent there. As ever, the... More

We stayed in the new units at the rear of the motel. Although the units are new and clean and tidy they are tiny. There is nowhere to place your cases except in either the doorway out of the unit or the doorway to the bathroom. Although it has a microwave the only place to wash dishes is in a... More

My grandson and I stayed on Wednesday 16 July. The room was dated but serviceable but it was freezing cold. The room heater was so noisy you couldn't watch Tv or sleep with it on. The other flame effect heater did not warm the roon and the bedroom had no heating. We had to sleep with electric blankets on and... More

Very nice facility, run by a very friendly family, and located very close to a great variety of food and beverage outlets. We would have loved to stay longer. A nice simple journey to the airport and reasonably close to the stadium.

My wife and I stayed a total of 5 nights on two separate visits over two weeks.The unit was close to the city and on a main road but still very quiet. We found the unit a little small for our extended stays and the heating struggled to keep up when the temperatures dropped below 0 during our second visit.... More

This is a handy place for traveling to/from the train station and a taxi ride can be included in your room fee. We had a 2 bedroom with kitchen and large bathroom. Even though it is on a major street, our suite, the first behind the managers, was very quite. Beds were firm and we had a great night's rest.... More

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
