“Wonderful friendly service. Comfortable units.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2011

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at Christchurch Motel. The units were beautifully clean and I was plesantly surprised at the quality of servicing our unit got in the morning as I was there two nights. The man in the office was very friendly and made us feel very welcome-a home away from home. I was very comfortable, the location wasn't ideal but it didn't actually have any effect on my sleep or quality time with my new husband =) I would definitely recommend staying here.

We arrived five days after the earthquake. Despite the local difficulty we were given a very warm welcome. The accommodation was spacious and spotless. The Colemans helped us get our bearings and find a restaurant - no easy task on that Sunday evening. Many thanks for all your kindnesses.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2010

We were booked through Golden Chain and found the staff friendly and helpful. It was a bit noisy due to being on the main road but located well to transport shopping and not far from Christchurch. We stayed there for 2 nights in an upstairs room which was clean and comfortable with a full kitchen clean bathroom 2 bedrooms. When we had finished touring around we spent our last night back at this motel before flying home and had requested a ground floor unit which was not to the same standed as our upstairs one. It was a bit old dated and could do with a bit of a facelift EG new furnishings and kitchen.

The motel is ideally situated on Riccarton Road, with good public transport outside and a good selection of food outlets opposite. The owners give outstanding and thoughtful service and cheerfully provide shuttle services in office hours. Staying there made our brief trip to Christchurch most enjoyable

Very dated motel, not quite sure how they got a four star.

Dirty, old TV's, no wireless or broadband, unhelpful, very small rooms.

Our party of four stayed two nights in this motel and, to be honest, I messed up. The location is poor, too far out of the city yet not in the countryside. Located on the busy Riccarton Road, to the west of Christchurch this motel suffers from road noise, not compensated for by features or interest. I have no complaints about the facilities, which were adequate but not inspiring -value for money was ok but there is better out there.
