“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2014

The staff at Admiral Motel were extremely helpful with info on where to eat, what to see, where to go in the South Island, the room was very clean and well equiped, the free wi-fi was more than enough, we gave this motel an 11/10.

Fantastic stay in this motel. Had a two room apartment which was classy without being over the top. Real good value for money. Well kept and maintained and excellent helpful service. Don't be put of by the location or the view from outside go in and check it out.

Room Tip: Take the two room apartment - you effectively get your own house!!

I would recommend this place to my family and friends. The owners were lovely and very helpful. Great location, just a short walk to the city centre. Would definitely stay here again. Definitely a happy customer

We stayed with Rick and Ricky and the service and welcome we received were the best we had in New Zealand. The motel is in a great location, just a 20 minute walk to the City Centre and two minute walk to a really good pub for food. The owners make sure you get a real New Zealand welcome and go out of their way to help. We were dropping off a campervan before staying with them for our last night and Rick even came to pick us up from the campervan centre. The motel is excellent value for money and we just we had known about it when we arrived. Highly recommend this as a place to stay in Christchurch.

We literally felt like admirals during our stay in this motel. The location is great and it is not far away from the city centre (20 min walk). The owners Rick and Ricky were outstandingly friendly and helpful. They took their time to give us great advices for our visit to the Christchurch city. We felt there like at home. The rooms are clean and cosy. Regarding the service, the location and the rooms, this is how it should be in a motel. We highly recommend to stay in the Admiral motel when you plan to visit Christchurch.

We stayed here for business last week and the service was exceptional!

They went out of their way to make our stay comfortable and provided everything we needed with a smile.

Would definitely recommend

We stay here for our final night at NZ. What makes this motel absolutely excellent are the owners. They really cares about customers and they're comfort. We got warm welcome and all kind of information related to town and surroundings. This place is nice, clean, quiet and it takes 15-20 min walk to the center.
