Lovely place to stay. Really tidy and immaculately clean with friendly staff. Exciting to see Chch on the mend and they have some great pop up cafes and re:start container mall a short walk from FOCUS. Also close by is the Museum, botanical gardens, Ballantynes and lots more. Would definitely stay again!!

Good new, well fitted motel room. Good comfortable beds, free secure parking. Convenient to the city with a short walk. Small kitchen with enough to have breakfast. Good range of TV channels. This seems like a very new place with all very clean and new fittings.

I decided to pay a premium and stay at the Focus so i would be closer to town and not need a rental car. I was not disappointed and the stay was excellent. The place is exceptionally clean. Very comfortable with good heating (-2 degrees outside!!!). The premium meant that I had free unlimited fast broadband, full package of SKY... More

I stayed here for 2 weeks, the owners were wonderful, informative and helpful. The rooms are north facing so my room had heaps of sun and warm and cosy. Walking distance to central CBD. On main bus routes

We stayed here only one night but enjoyed our stay. The room was very clean and well appointed and even had a balcony. The location is VERY central, but is right across the street from the casino. Our room was on the street side but we didn't have any issues with too much noise. The owners were really great and... More

We only stayed at the Focus for one night, as we were passing through, but I have to say I felt quite at home in our little studio room. It was comfy, modern and very clean. The hotel is in a great position, just a short walk to the CBD and nearby restaurants/pubs. Roy was very helpful and jolly. Would... More

I stay at the Focus regularly for business and figured I really should offer a positive review. Roy is always friendly and gets you sorted quickly and without fuss. The rooms are comfortable and large enough to allow you to relax or continue working. Internet speed is adequate for checking emails etc. Pretty quiet location so I always get a... More

We stayed for two nights at the end of a long trip through New Zealand, and Roy was exceptionally helpful - above and beyond anything we could ask. Before our arrival he reached out to us via email to advise us about nearby roadwork and arrival details to ensure there were no problems. During our short stay, he helped us... More

The Motel is in a great location. Walking distance to most places in the CBD and very close to Victoria St. The hotel is half a block from the casino. The rooms are nice and well equipped with a kitchenette. There is no AC, but it was cool when I stayed here so it was not a concern. The one... More
