Was close to restaurants and town center. We really enjoyed our stay. We had a 1 bedroom unit with spa bath on the top floor, it was spacious, clean and well presented. We did not have a booking but it was during the quiet season and we were given a room of our choice straight away. The owners were lovely... More

We spent two nights at the Tresori Motor Lodge in late May and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We (3 adults) had a 1BR unit with spa bath on the top floor, which was large, clean and quiet and well equipped. The nights were freezing but we stayed cosy and warm thanks to the very efficient heating in the room. The... More

We stayed for 3 nights on the final leg of our trip before heading up to Christchurch.This is good Motel, very clean and good size rooms and your own lounge/kitchen diner with a TV. The location is very good and easy walking distance down to the harbor and the bars on the front. The fair sized car park is another... More

We stayed one night in Akaroa and found the Tresori Motor Lodge online. The motel is well located close to the wharf where wildlife cruises leave from and where you'll find some decent cafes. The greeting we received was very friendly. We arrived a little early and just wanted to park so that we could go on the dolphin cruise,... More

We agree with other reviewers in that Tresori is a very well situated place to stay and is well equipped. However, despite being asked to wash and dry our dishes, there was no wash brush supplied. Also, it is the only place we have stayed where wi-fi is not complimentary ($3.00 per 30 minute connection_ and we could not connect... More

Motel was well equipped and had everything that we needed for our two night stay in Akaroa. Motel is close to the cafes/bars/restaurants which is very handy. Would have been nice to have free internet connection as everywhere else we stayed did have. Would stay again if in Akaroa.

Akaroa itself is a lovely place. Tresori in a very good location near the waterfront (although it's one street back so there is no view). Pretty basic room although it had most things you would need. Room lacked privacy due to large glass sliding doors which overlooked the car park but provided the only natural light into the room. Considerably... More

This was my last night accommodation in the South Island – Akaro is a fantastic place to visit and if you are on two wheels, a great little trip out from Christchurch on some very twisty roods!! You must take the scenic routes that take you to the summit in AKaro, you won’t be disappointed with the views. The accommodation... More

Tresori Motor Lodge is just back from the water front, beautiful spot Owner very nice and accommodating , rooms clean and tidy, well thought out. We had upstairs accommodation next to the road, noise did disturb us a little. The Spa, while a nice feature has the shower over it, we found stepping in and out a little slippery. Overall... More
