The room was very comfortable and well appointed, I was especially impressed... More

Hello mrskimberleybyfield and thanks for the review which duly notes some of the most wanted things when choosing a motel.

My birthday treat. ....he said we were upgraded so how come we ended up in a broom closet with hardly any light and a patio the size of a postAge stamp looking at a tin fence.. and that was the only window. We asked to change and got another room but the seed was sown and won't be back

Sorry to hear that you were disappointed with your room on this, your second stay with us. Your room was indeed an upgrade from a Standard Studio and while you never mentioned that it was your birthday, the upgrade was offered with only the best intentions. We do find that different people look at different rooms in different ways –... More

We arrived after midnight with access pre-arranged. The room was very comfortable, spacious and well set out. The ability to compost and recycle was very welcome too. The staff were helpful and friendly, and obviously take great pride in their business. I happily would recommend this hotel to anyone.

We stayed just one night, but we enjoyed it very much. The owner was very chatty, friendly and helpful, which always makes such a difference. The room was spacious, and clean with good facilities. The price was excellent. It was located within a short walk of the CBD. We would definitely return if we are in Christchurch again.
