We chose to stay here for a ridiculous reason - my name is Rochelle! But we were really pleased we chose this motel. Lovely tidy, clean, modern motel room. There is a stream and native bush out the back of the rooms and lots of native birds singing. It was lovely to wake to the birds and we saw gorgeous kereru (natie wood pigeon) from our room.
Great location, a short walk from the town centre. We didn't really see our hosts as they were out when we arrived and had told us they would leave a key. This was fine with us :-)
My only comment would be that in comparison to other motels we stayed at during our Canterbury trip, this motel wasn't so generous with their "extras", eg. there was an advertised charge for wi-fi, DVD hire, towel hire etc. I had enjoyed the fact that these extras were complementary in other motels and disappointed we would have to pay for wi-fi, especially as the 3G reception in our room wasn't good. But a small complaint really.
