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... More

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... More

Spending a weekend in Christchurch the Alcala Motor Lodge was a very pleasant and convenient place to stay. The Motel is family run with nothing being a fuss or bother to ensure a pleasant stay. The Motel is located just out of the CBD, is easily accessed by public transport and car (free parking on-site) and within a comfortable 20-30... More

We stayed for 2 nights. This is a nice family run motel, rooms are clean, comfortable, and well presented. Our 2 bed apartment was perfect for our needs as we have 3 children. The couple managing the motel were happy to help with anything. I would recommend this place to anyone.

We start our road trip in south Island from Christchurch and stayed our first night at Alcala. The beds are good and it has a small kitchen to cook. It is a cheap and good place to stay. The manager is very friendly as well.
