“Lovely place, cozy room, a fantastic night”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2011

An overdue thank you to Linda and her husband for a wonderful experience. I cannot believe I can enjoy so much fun just pay a little room charge.i am so glad we stumbled across the motel on the internet.

I stayed here only for 1 night. The rooms are spacious, bathrooms and kitchen are cozy as well. Linda is so kind who turned on the heater in our room ahead of time, and prepared some eggs and noddles for us since we arrived in Christchurch so late. From chatting with each other, we learned that couple were not true master of this motel, but just were in charge of it. Even through,they made us feel so welcome. the atmosphere at the motel is so friendly too. with it being a small place in comparison to the big hotels, everyone gets to know each other and you instantly feel at home!!

I would strongly recommend this fantastic place and Abbey Motor Lodge would be my first choice of accommodation when going back to Christchurch. Thank you Linda and your husband for making our stay so enjoyable.

We felt warmly welcomed by the staff and they were very helpful, almost with every aspects from attrations to cusines and to travel plans. The room is very spacious - out of our expectation. There are almost everything we need in the room. By the way, I like the newly refurbished carpet - it just looks awesome, nice and clean! There's a little noisy since our room was next to the road, great value though. I would highly recommend to those who have tight budget but don't want to compromise comfort. Also a few steps to the Intercity bus stop.

It has all the basic necessaities like Digital TV, and even free wifi access. Internet connectivity is not cheap in NZ, so having free wifi is a great advantage. It is walking distance from the city center. Room is pretty big, spacious, and clean. And best of all, it is very affordable.

We stayed at the motel for 4 nights and had a lovely relaxing stay. The room was very clean and all furnishings were new and well maintained. The kitchen had everything we needed. The TV was a large flatscreen and a DVD player was provided which was awesome. Wireless internet access was fast and easy. Staff were helpful and friendly - always available if we needed anything from taxi, to hire car pick up, to a hairdryer. Overall we had a really good stay.

Excellent service by the receptionist. Nice room and comfy too with the kitchen and bathroom well consealed by door. Looks more like an apartment than a room. Convenient location to city centre.

Room Tip: Try to get a room further from the road.
