“Solid hotel on a busy road”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2013

I've stayed here three times and enjoyed it. There is a fair amount of variation in the rooms - I found the lower rooms at the very back to be the best. The bedding is quite comfortable and the Internet, which on every one of my stays was included for free, is one of the fatest connections I've encountered. The complex is maintained by its owners, so do enquire beforehand if you plan on checking-in late. Riccarton Rd is one of the busiest roads in Christchurch and, irrespective of room choice, you can hear the road traffic through the walls. That said, I've never had a problem sleeping and the location very close to the Riccarton Mall has always proved ideal for me. It's a short car or shuttle trip to the airport too (though so is pretty much anywhere in Christchurch).

Room Tip: Lower rooms at the very back generally have the best layout.

Location is good, close to everything. Room was modern, and tidy. Even had a spa bath : ). Only issue I had with the hole thing was we were in a down stairs room and every time the people above us had a bath or shower all the noise was coming down to our room when we were trying to sleep. Not sure if this can be fixed or not. But overall thought it was very good with friendly and funny staff. Well definitely be back.

Close to everything. 1-bed executive was refurbished, modern, fresh and clean, up 1 flight of stairs, parking underneath. Shared laundry downstairs. Good for a 1-night stopover, then back on the road again. Friendly staff, thanks for your hospitality.

Room Tip: Down the back, away from the main road was quiet.

Two night stay, great location, lovely clean rooms with a very comfy bed and I must mention the friendly and helpful hosts.
Short walk to the Riccarton Mall and only a 15 minute drive to the airport.
Highly recommend. Will be our first choice next time we visit Christchurch.

The location is great close to the mall ,rooms clean and modern. We had adjoining rooms which was great for our 18mth old Grandaugthers they could run through to each room this was really good and we had plenty of room for 4 adults too. The owners were very helpful. Thank you. We will use this motel again.

We stayed the one night and found it a great little apartment styled hotel room. It's walking distance to a big Westfield shopping centre and about 10 minutes drive to both the airport and town. The owners were lovely and very helpful.
Riccarton has plenty of great little bars and restaurants too - you just have to know where to look!! I'd highly this accommodation to everyone.

Great place to stay with family. Located next to Westfield; on the main shops/eating area. Not that far from airport. But at night it was quiet. New place, new furniture, GREAT beds, with kitchenette as well. We had a family room - 2 bed rooms, enough place to sit around the lounge and watch tv. I was told that we had the smaller of the family room, but it was big enough for us. Definitely will come back.
