This was the best Motel we have stayed at. The rooms were spotless, well equiped and very comfortable and modern. Plenty of extra towels, great!
Good variety on the breakfast menue, plenty of it and very fresh.

Our host were very friendly and accomidating, nothing was a bother, very helpfull when enquiring about eaterys, bus sevices etc.

We would certinatly stay here again. Thank you.

Chistchurch is a wonderful vibrant welcoming town and Lorenzo is likely the best motel on Riccarton road. Mary and Mark are very nice and professional host.

We enjoyed our 2 nights here & found Mike to be an extremelyt helpful host,making sure we had room kept separate for parking our Harley as there were a few bikes to be catered for due to The Rally.

Ok, this is how hotels should be run. This place definitely lived up to all expectations and reviews.

From the welcome at reception to the wave goodbye as we left for the airport. What fantastic service. Nothing was too much.

We stayed one night in a 2 bedroom suite with spa. The room was immaculate and very spacious. Probably the cleanest spa and kitchen I've ever seen in a hotel.

The hotel was also very convenient to a variety of good restaurants.

From the time of making our booking and throughout our stay, Mike and Mary couldn't have been more helpful. We made two bookings, one night at the start and two nights at the end of our time in South Island. We had arranged to travel by rail across the Island and Mike very kindly booked a free shuttle for us to the station. On both occasions the rooms were immaculate, comfortable and very well equipped. The Lorenzo is situated a ten minute walk from the town centre, through a really beautiful park but if you prefer to eat nearby, there is a choice of retaurants and Mike is always on hand to advise. The Lorenzo is really well run and the service as good as anything we experienced in our three weeks. The only downside was leaving.

Situated on the Riccarton side of Hagley Park, the Lorenzo Motor Lodge is five minutes drive, or a twenty minute walk across the park into the heart of Christchurch. It is also well positioned for the airport and access to the main highways north and south. A double unit on the ground floor was well fitted, immaculately clean, and quiet in spite of being adjacent to the car park & main road. Family operated to an unusually high standard with an attention to detail. We were greeted on our arrival with a genuinely warm & friendly greeting too! Other motels, take note.
