We stayed for 2 days in the motel section, at the rear of the block, and would stay there again in a heartbeat. It was really comfortable clean and well fitted out. I liked the fact the bedroom & ensuite could be closed off from the lounge/kitchen area. Our bedroom had a large area to locate our luggage next to the ensuite. We stayed on the ground floor with a lovely courtyard with large table and chairs out front. Even though the location is on a busy street, it was really quiet. The best part is the location..it is so central. We walked everywhere! The host is very friendly and helpful. It is quite encouraging that the motel section has gone through the earthquakes untouched. We had a lovely meal 2 blocks away at the Fiddlesticks Restaurant. Free wifi is included. The art gallery is only a block away, although it wasn't open yet. I have been recommending this accommodation to friends.
