Ping and her team provide a fantastic Motel Accommodation experience. My work required me to be in Christchurch for 8 nights and I was working long hours. When I returned 'home' each evening, the lights and heater had been turned on. Whilst waiting for the car to defrost the ice from my windscreen approx. 6.45 am (very dark), there was... More

Pros-We had four people staying in a 2 bedroom suite. It was clean, spacious, well appointed and comfortable. The bathroom had a great spa bathtub. Cons- very few and minimal. The heat worked better in the main rooms than bedroom but the beds had electric blankets.

We had a 2 bedroom which slept 5. The beds were comfortable, the motel was close to the botanical gardens and there are plenty of restaurants around. The room had a mini kitchen and they provide coffee, tea, milk and sugar.

This is our second stay and we are very happy with the stay we had. The rooms are beautifully clean and you feel very comfortable. The bathrooms are lovely. Thank you once again Ping for your hospitality and we will come back again and stay whenever we in Christchurch. 😊

Very comfortable quarters, a really great staff, clean and modern, well located just a few minutes from the cbd, train station and central park. The rumble you hear once or twice a night is a train, not an earthquake. (It's not a problem or concern.) I'll tell you how nice the grounds are: one evening the wind came up and... More

The property is very clean and well maintained. It is in a good location, across the gardens from the city centre and a reasonable walk to the train station. The internet was free and worked well. There is a guest laundry. The room was small but comfortable.

This was a quaint little hotel/motel near the park and relatively easy walking distance to the city center. The rooms were clean and large with free internet. Despite being right off a main road, it was quiet. There are also good restaurants in the vicinity and quite close to the rail station.

This motel is a good choice for travellers to Christchurch. It is situated on busy Riccarton Rd but the traffic noise was not noticeable in our room. There was plenty of room with a separate bedroom and roomy lounge area. We had a small kitchenette with all the usual facilities such as plenty of crockery & cutlery. Very friendly receptionist...

Lovely big, clean and well appointed apartment with great bathroom. Stayed here twice whilst touring South island. Both rooms were very good. Plenty of nice toiletries provided and from memory these were made locally. Good location on Riccarton Road with bars and restaurants within short walking distance. Just across the road there was a liquor store which was handy!! Easy... More

Stayed in the Lorenzo for 5 nights. The staff on arrival were very helpful. The motel is located very close to Hagley Park which makes access into Christchurch city centre very easy. Riccarton is a great area to stay with all amenities within walking distance. The room was of excellent standard and made our stay very comfortable.
