4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

Nice stay with my wife for one night. The room was spacious and neat. Very clean and tidy. The water pressure in the bathroom was little low. Free wifi. I would highly recommend. Will definitely stay again.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

Stayed in this hotel for one night, just needed something clean for the night before our flight early in the AM. The room was too pricey for the ~NZD 100 I paid. It is clean but very outdated and tiny.

I booked at short notice, and the operator was friendly and helpful, despite English is not being his first language. The room was fairly clean, although a long piece of black hair on the side of the vanity was not a good look. Shower pressure is adequate but not great. Room sizeable and well appointed, although TV cannot be watched from the master bed! There are a few eateries within walking distance - a car gives greater choices. Quiet and close to public transport. Broadband was slow and repeatedly dropped out which was a real pain
All that said I would stay again as the value was fair in today's Christchurch market

Fairly close to the CBD, but still a fair way from restaurants. Decor is dated, but kept clean. Clean linen and towels. Service and staff assistance cannot be faulted. An overnighter ok, but not for several nights. Bathroom needs complete overhaul. Water pressure low, toilet although cleaned was smelly, trimming have mould, towel heater not working. Free Wi-Fi.

Stayed October 2013, traveled with family

Arrived at the hotel an hour or so before check in, had no problems. The nice gentleman at reception was very friendly and helpful. We actually booked the cheapest one bed room online only two or three hours before and upon arrival he gave just gave us the third suite just because it was vacant! Pretty cool. We only picked this place because the other hotels/motels were fully booked but were very satisfied with our decision.

This is a typical type of NZ motel, with most of the features you'd expect in such a place.

We stayed (twice) in Unit 1, and had no issues with the often commented mustiness that other reviewers have reported. The unit was clean, in average condition, had good kitchen facilities, and plenty of seating (two person couch, two easy chairs, plus dining chairs).

The unit was very well lit, and as a bonus, had a spa type bath (with shower over). There was however only one heater in the main area, none in either bedroom, so you either had to leave bedroom doors open at night for some heat to flow through or close them for privacy but then freeze (it was winter when we were there).

Location is excellent, with a great selection of shops and lovely fish and chip takeaway and bakery very close.

We definitely appreciated the free unlimited Wi-Fi.

We would very happily stay there again. Service was good, price was right.

Room Tip: Call direct to book and you'll probably get a better deal if you ask for it than you'll find...
