The Alcala Motor Lodge was a great place to stay with a group of friends or family. The staff were excellent and the rooms were nice and cosy. I stayed with my family of five and we enjoyed our stay. The accommodation was walking distance from many of the attractions in Christchurch which made getting around easier. Overall our stay...

We stayed in a one bedroom unit for four nights. The staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was basic but clean and spacious with parking outside. It was less than 10 mins drive to the city centre or could walk in and local shops nearby. The only downside was the bathroom was dated.

An older style motel, but in very good condition. Very clean and very comfortable beds and warm. Laundry was available on site which was very handy. Owner was very welcoming and helpful. Positioned in a good place halfway between centre of Christchurch and the airport.

The staff at Alcala Motor Lodge, were very friendly and helpful, Our motel unit was very clean and well appointed. The spa bath was fabulous. The location of the Motel units is very quiet and central to Christchurch City. There are quite a few takeaway food outlets close buy and a small supermarket. We would definitely stay again.

When I say that I wanted to like this place, I am thinking about its low price and availability of lots of space. We got a two bedroom suite with a double spa bath for around AU$120. That is cheap, even for NZ. However, the interior is very dated, the noise from upstairs people walking (we were on the ground...

Although the motel had changed owners since I was last there (almost 10 years ago!) the standard of cleanliness hasn't changed. The rooms are well appointed and modern and very comfortable. The owners were friendly and accommodating. Have no hesitation in going back there. Also, close to Edgeware and supermarket, takeaways etc.

We stayed in a studio room with a double spa and found it very comfortable. Although slightly dated, the apartment was spotlessly clean. The kitchen was well equipped and the room had a real 'apartment feel' to it. The room rate was very reasonable and the staff very genuine. Thanks for a great stay.

We stayed in a double spa unit and it was very dated - tiles were cracked, grout stained, silicone seal repair work was mouldy, heated towel rail had exposed wires and repairs with cable ties (a danger to children who may access the wires), bed cover had cigarette burn holes and another clearly damaged with rips. Although the staff are...
