Our room was clean and comfortable, though as it was at the front of the complex on the highway, there was some road noise. Spacious living area and good-sized kitchen. It's located a short, easy walk into town. We had a good stay.

Thoughtful owners had put heat pump on and the room was nice and warm on arrival, very clean. Good shower and very comfortable bed. Friendly owners with easy walk to town. Would definitely stay here again. Motel can provide breakfast but were equally happy to tell us of other cafes and breakfast places open when we needed it - including... More

We had a 2 bedroom family suite. It was large and clean and easily accommodated our family of five including 2 teenagers. The owner/manager lives on site and super friendly. Easy access to highway and only 1 1/2 hour outside of Christchurch airport.

Nice place to stay. We were greeted at the front desk by one of the owners who was friendly and informative of the area and gave us a recommendation for supper. Reserved a two bedroom room, it was clean and heat was on. Each bed had electric blankets.

Greetings, We are pleased that you enjoyed staying with us. We have had some lovely cold weather recently - Geraldine managed some snow this year. The advantage of booking ahead is that we are able to have your room warmed and ready for you on arrival - lovely and cosy on our cooler days. Regards More

The motel is located about 300 metres from the "village" centre and is an easy, flat walk. The "village" includes a supermarket and cafes/restaurants as well as the other normal outlets one would expect in a community of this size (pop. about 2,300). It is an attractive rural setting located on a road route from Christchurch to Fairlie and Mount... More

Nice tidy motel. Comfortable bed and nicely appointed unit. Easy walk to town and near by private observatory. Only downside - the neighbours were smoking outside their room and smoke wafted into ours.

Very nice motel in Geraldine. Warm friendly welcome by the hosts followed by a nice motel. Bed very comfortable, everything laid out nicely. On a couple of minutes walk to town and about 20 metres from the nearest Cafe. Hosts are very friendly (as is the cat).

I booked based on trip advisor reviews. I was disappointed as i was expecting it to be quiet! We originally had the two bedroom appartment, but when we arrived and checked the room it was along side the main road and was so noisy that it sounded like a semi trailer was travelling through the room!! I was surprised how... More

The two bedroom suite that you had booked, was road side, but as we are a modern well insulated and sound proofed motel, it is a quiet suite. You arrived when the road was busy, but Geraldine is a quiet village, especially at night. You were in the suite for less than 5 minutes, before you requested alternative accommodation because...

Nice new motel in Geraldine. Free Wifi. Very clean and tidy. Spacious rooms and within walking distance to town. The most comfortable beds and pillows we have experienced in a long time. We had a back unit not sure if a front unit would be noisy thought as Geraldine isn't a very busy place.
