“A Nice Place To Stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

This was a very clean, neat, colorful unit with a small patio and garden in the center of town, easy to find, with a helpful staff. It was easy to drive from here to the Christchurch Arboretum, and to get downtown to see the reconstruction after the earthquake. We would be glad to return

we stopped to see if they had a vacancy and was asked if i would like to see the room. it was an extremely hot day and after we booked in the lady from the office brought us a plate of very cold watermelon which was so refreshing. we had a unit by the office and though the motel is on a very busy intersection the road noise wasn't too bad. the room was lovely and clean. would stay here again definitely.

Great welcome. Very accommodating and friendly. Met our extra requests without a question. Quiet clean rooms with good facilities.
Highly recommended

We wanted a well priced bed for our overnight stay between trains and this fitted the bill perfectly. The room was bright and attractive, with a small balcony and a kitchenette. Traffic noise was not a problem. Best of all, the motel arranges taxi transfers to and from the station at no cost to guests.

We ate out in the evening and can thoroughly recommend Mosaic which is about 10 minutes walk away. Brilliant Moroccan deli where you can eat-in very reasonably

They have it!

Seriously, I really enjoyed my stay here, thought it was a very well appointed and comfortable motel room, and good value. Potentially could be a bit noisy as is close to the road, however, I didn't hear anything!

Very convenient to Addington Raceway, the Westac Events Centre and the Christchurch Stadium.

If only my office wasn't on the other side of town, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Nice cat, and MARMITE for my toast in the morning.

Thanks!

We were transferred here from the Arena because they were full so the 2 do seem to work well together. The Motel is very well equipped and in good condition with a friendly helpful owner. We caught the early train to Picton and the Motel arranged for a taxi to take us at no cost to us. If you are traveling by train Christchurch centre is a short bus ride away although Addington seems to be expanding at a faster pace than the CBD rebuild.

We were taking the train from Picton to Christchurch and the train was late getting to the station. The manager of the hotel, personally picked us up at the train station and drove us to the hotel. The room was very pleasant and clean with a kitchenette. This included a small bottle of milk in the fridge, pots, pans, dishes, silverware, etc. to help us keep our costs down. My computer could not get internet, so they sent a guy out the next day to fix my computer or their network. By the time I got home, my old computer had wireless. For a pleasant stay in Christchurch with friendly competent management, try Addington Court.
