Nice room and facilities. We were upgraded from a one bedroom unit to a two bedroom on at no additional cost. The lodge is just a few minutes walk from restaurants and the mall. The staff were very friendly and helpful!

Excellent room facilities. The double glazed windows helps to reduce Riccarton Rd traffic noise. I normally notice traffic noise so this was great. It also keeps the rooms warmer. Room has air conditioner. Although the unit was quiet when in use every time I turned it off it would make a fair bit of noise. Rooms very well serviced. The... More

Thank you for taking the time to leave us your review Justine G. Being one of the latest motels to be built on Riccarton road, we are lucky to be one of the few that have air con to keep our guest warm during the winter. And our double glazed windows and doors made road noise hardly an issue. Thank... More

very clean room and comfortable beds. Arrived late at night but that was no problem for the owners. Very quick checkout too. Coffee and tea and mini fridge available in the rooms. Didn't stay long enough to really get use of the amenities but were available

We stayed at the executive studio for a night. Staff was friendly. It was winter and heater was already switched on when we checked in. Room was clean and modern. Kitchen was well-equipped. Motel is a short walk to Westfield Riccarton, which was handy for stocking up supplies. Very happy with stay. Thumbs up!

When we arrived in the evening, we were warmly greeted and told our room had the heater on and the key was on the kitchen bench. When we got to our room it was warm and inviting. The warmth was really appreciated after a late flight in the cold night. Thank you guys.
