“Impressive accommodation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 17, 2013

I stayed in a studio apartment in Feb 2013, beds incredibly comfortable, great selection of channels, quiet, service polite and professional... And was also struck at how well maintained the place looked. Also very well priced given the high demand on motels at the moment... Wifi was also a huge and very welcome bonus!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2013

I stayed with my 2 teenage children at the Fyffe Riccarton for 2 nights in December 2012. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment. The apartment was outstanding, clean, modern, the beds were the most comfortable beds we have ever slept in, the bathroom included a lovely spa bath and there was a lovely private outdoor patio area with outdoor setting. We were away from the road (apartment 705) which meant we didn't hear any traffic noise from Riccarton Road. There were 3 TVs, one in each bedroom and the lounge room and all TVs had Sky (which my son was very happy about because he could watch the cricket). The apartment was perfect for our 2 night stay in Christchurch and was close to Riccarton Mall which was also a bonus. However I would probably not have wanted to stay for a long period with 2 teenage children because it is quite small. But for the 2 nights we were there it was ideal. The owners were extremely friendly and helpful and no query was too much for them. We will definitely be staying the next time we are in Christchurch!

Room Tip: If you want to book a 2 bedroom apartment definitely book apartment 705 which is well away from the...

Not a bad little place to stay. We stayed in two different studio type rooms as we were in town at different times. Both rooms were spacious, clean and comfortable. The owners are warm and welcoming. Would stay here again.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Was booked to stay at the Fyffe by the company I work for, wouldn't be my first choice a bit isolated and no restaurant and none close. A 10 minute or so brisk walk to the only restaurant that did charge back not a great experience but reviewed seperately fortunately no raining. The room was modern and comfortable enough, a few hickups, bathroom flooded when I turned the shower on had to put towel down by door to stop carpet getting wet, had heater in bathroom didn't seem to work, made plunger coffee, plunger was broken coffe grounds althrough "strained coffe".
Fix up the few minor problems nice enough to stay but for location alone i would not stay there again.

Room Tip: If you stay here expect a brisk walk or drive to get something to eat, don't rely on charge back...

Riccarton Road seems spoilt for accommodation choices. Fyffe was well appointed, very clean and tidy and the hosts were lovely people. New TV's with crisp reception and plenty of channels were great, especially watching from a large comfy bed. Everything needed was close by. I'd happily stay here again.

Stayed here in March 2012, in a 2 bed apartment. Great location, easy walking or driving distance to big shopping centre and cafes/ restaurants. Easy check in and parking, room was large, warm, clean and beds comfortable. The bathroom was very well appointed and nice and big. Enjoyed our stay here and will definatly be back!

Stayed for 2 nights, easy check in and out, really friendly and helpful staff. Room was private, barely heard roadside traffic, and was serviced daily. heat pump in the lounge area was awesome as it'd been freezing coming in from the rugby. Bathroom was a lot spacious as what photos had indicated on the website- spa bath was really relaxing after coming in from the cold weather!
Definitely will be coming back.
