Several good things about this place, it is clean, quiet and modern, nicely decorated and easy to find. On the other hand it is rather expensive, it is just a motel after all with all you expect, no more and no less. I also was surprised that payment was expected on arrival - they had my credit card details with... More

This motel was being run by motel minders, obviously with the owners there it woukd be different. Phoned for directions but lady had to revert to Google, we were only 3 or 4 streets away, took forever. Only 4 towels in room for 5 people, additionally only 1x300ml of milk for 5 people. At $240 for a room would expect... More

This motel was recommended by a friend after we found it difficult to get accommodation in central Christchurch, which is still suffering from the effects of the 2011 Earthquake. It is only 20 minutes from Christchurch 90 minutes from Hanmer Springs Thermal Pools and 90 minutes to Kaikoura. We found it to be extremely clean, quiet (despite being on a... More

Stayed here as part of a family gathering and we were not disappointed. The room we had was normally for disabled people so came with a wet room and lowered kitchen tops. The quality of this place warrants the rates and the people who run it are very nice and nothing is too much trouble! Highly recommended.

We have stayed here a couple of times and our most recent stay was absolutely fabulous. Our hosts could not do enough for us and our stay was a great experience. These motels are well maintained and extremely comfortable. We could not have wished for anything better and would recommend this motel 100%. However you may have to book ahead... More

A great motel to stay in....nice and modern and clean! Easy to find (once we could locate the correct road! LOL!). Quick and easy check-in, very friendly staff member on the front counter, very clean and sleek looking rooms with plenty of towels, toiletries and TV channels! Wifi was available and gave us no problems. We were only there for... More

Excellent motel, slightly hidden if you don't keep an eye open for it. Beautifully furnished and spotlessly clean. Bar and Chinese restaurant on the doorstep. Wifi limited to 100mb and router seemed to be temperamental. Useful laundry.

This is a great option if you don't want to stay in Christchurch. It's approximately a 20 minute drive from the city. It was a great stopover. Paid a little extra for a unit with a spa bath - fabulous and most worthwhile after a big day's driving. Nice modern and roomy unit - very comfy - heating on when... More

I've just returned for a second visit and used this Motel as my 'home' for the week. It's relatively new and the units are comfortable and clean. The kitchen was well-resourced for those wanting to prepare their own meals. With winter rapidly approaching, it was easy to stay warm and cosy. The owners are welcoming and helpful

Nicely decorated rooms. Large rooms have room for two casual chairs and a small coffee table. Good desk for computer work, however there is no desk lamp in the room to be able to use when working on the computer. Great location. Comfortable bed with electric blankets. Very clean. Friendly owners. Good parking. Quiet location even through it is located... More
