This is the second time we have stayed here and both times we've been impressed. It's fantastically clean, the staff are friendly and it has everything you need. Last year we stayed in the studio and this year we stayed in a one bed and both apartments have been of high standard. Will definitely use again!

Efficiency unit with microwave, sink, and fridge. Noisy with train, traffic and garbage pickup. Balcony is very small. Queen bed. Combo shower /tub. Front desk very nice. Near a great breakfast place.

Three adults staying at Lorenzo Motor Lodge for 6 nights. Superb attention to detail, immaculate housekeeping and linen replenishment. Each day we returned from regional trips the heating was on and all curtains pulled, so cosy to return to. Car windows were cleared with water each morning to remove ice. We chose an extremely cold mid winter snap to visit... More

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.

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.
