Seriously these guys set the standard of excellence for Motels in new Zealand. Everything about this place is done right... even the wifi works without hassles. I wish every motel in NZ was this good.

We stayed here after a long flight from London and could not have asked for a warmer welcome! Our room was immaculate and bed very comfortable. We only stayed one night but the suite was so well equipped we would have been happy staying longer. Highly recommended!

I booked two rooms (3 people) on arrival in Christchurch. It was just for one night as we had to drive somewhere next morning. The woman who greeted us was very welcoming and showed us our rooms personally. The motel is quite new and the rooms were well appointed and spotless. There was a nice kitchenette with a sink, microwave,... More

Very friendly service with lots of helpful advice about where to dine locally and how to see how the city is recovering from the earthquake. It... More

We had a recent overnight stay at Focus and I have to say that i do not have a bad word to say about the whole experience! We arrived early in the morning and Carol was very warm and welcoming and apologetic that there wasn't a room ready for us even though we knew that would likely be the case... More

Just call these guys directly as even if it looks booked up online they were able to wrangle us something and even gave us a great rate! The rooms are big, clean and comfy with tons of TV channels for chilling out. It's walking distance to the town centre and very close to a lot of great bars and restaurants... More
