Focus was my first stay in New Zealand and it was quite a welcome. The airline lost my suitcase for a bit and Carol & Roy were incredibly helpful with the situation - calling to help trace, offering laundry assistance for what I had in my carry-on, etc. The room was top notch and very good value for the money....

Excellent motel - great value, absolutely lovely rooms with everything you could think of - the small touches (like travel tissues and a welcome crunchie) were wonderful! But the nicest part was the staff! The owners were very friendly, very helpful and full of information about the city! Would definitely stay there again!

From the first call I made to make the booking Roy and Carol were so helpful and friendly. When we arrived they provided loads of information about the local area, the city, where to eat, etc. The rooms were very well equipped, secure and quiet, with handy parking. Very comfy beds! The motel is centrally located so we didn't use...

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,...

This is a good place for an overnight stop The room was very comfortable, though not very big, but everything worked and we could keep an eye on our rental car from our window. 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...
