surprised at the price, but the room was great with cooking facilities and even a washing machine and a dryer, handy but we didn't use them. this was a 5 star motel, so probably received at least one star for these.
the room had two very comfortable recliner chairs which was a first in all of our travelling, wonderful to sit in.
stayed on Friday night and was very noisy with men 'partying' sounded like in the front of the private college next door. emergency car sirens were going up and down all night too. beautiful homes in the streets opposite here, but the local lads spoil it. there are 'no cruising' signs in these streets. Papanui Road is just about door to door motel accommodation, so plenty to choose from. able to walk into Christchurch if you wanted to from here. we drove a bit closer and did the Red Zone area which was open on Saturday. the motel next door had a CCTV on the top of their stairs, which was a bit of a worry. someone's car alarm went off in the night. so if you stay here make sure you can get your car as far inside as you can.
probably an upstairs room, although you have to carry your bags up the stairs.
