“Clean, comfy place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Clean, good amenities, everything you need. Good location, a little noisy due to trucks going past, otherwise great place to stay. Beds very comfortable. Close to Riccarton Mall. Easy distance to the local bus service.

We stayed here the night before we took the Alpine Express. The room was clean and newly renovated. The innkeeper was efficient and book a pickup in the front of the hotel for us to go to the train station the next morning. He gave us a discount card for Robbie's, a local pub and restaurant. I had the lamb shank and my husband had the seafood chowder. The food was great and we had a Tui and watched the rugby game with our delicious lunch. I highly recommend both the lodge and the pub.

Room Tip: A must stay if you are going on the rail the next day.

Happy to recommend this. We had a studio room for 2 nights. Staff were welcoming and command of english was excellent. Owner (?) on site and very helpful. Decor was fresh and clean. Wheelchair access room (which we didn't require) but was well appointed. Small kitchenette was well stocked with the necessaries. We would definitely stay again.

Stayed in a Studio unit for 1 night; nice, clean room with well-equipped kitchenette. Room furnishing was new, and facilities were in good working condition. Location was near to train station and Westfield mall, where we could get our groceries from.

Staff was very friendly, constantly queried on our plans, giving suggestions and allowed us to check-in early despite we arrived earlier than specified check-in time. They even helped us arrange for the shuttle-bus pickup to the train station on the following morning.

Recommended stay, especially for people who need to rush for the train on the following morning.

The young couple attending to us were brilliant, so friendly and helpful. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Our room was very quiet, spotlessly clean, with nice modern decor. I would recommend it.

Room Tip: Only experienced quiet, back, single-story room, with lovely wooden deck and outdoor BBQ area. Very...

Stayed here for 2 nights before going on Trans Alpine. The hosts were very accommodating and offered to arrange free shuttle to train which was great. When we came back on the TransAlpine 4 days later they picked us up from train and we stayed another night. No traffic noise in spite of being on very busy road. Rooms were very clean and tidy. Great cafe for breakfast across the road and at a reasonable price. Bed was very comfortable. Facilities of a high standard. Would recommend.

Stayed here on arrival at ChCh prior to riding the TranzAlpine to Greymouth the following day. The lovely host promptly offered to arrange a free bus pickup to the station. The rooms were very nice, and a taxi driver we had said they were recently renovated. Westfield was nearby as were some dining options and we were given a 10% discount voucher to Robbies on Riccarton pub (10 minute walk away) which was a good option for dinner.
On the downside, it was a long walk to the CBD (not that there was much to see sadly) and I don't recall being offered wifi, although others said it is available. Overall very happy though :)
