Hands down, this is one of the friendliest places I've ever stayed. Mike and Mary are both exceptional hosts, and the Lorenzo Motor Lodge is a perfect place to come home to after a day out in Christchurch (or a long international flight). I stayed in room 10, which is amply sized, immaculately clean, and very comfortable and quiet. The... More

We stayed for over three weeks as our first 'home' in New Zealand. Mike and Mary were perfect welcoming hosts and the room was spacious and very well equipped. Well located for restaurants, Hagley Park, Botanic Gardens etc. Deserves all the praise it gets

My wife and I spent one night at Lorenzo Motor Lodge. The staff was friendly. The rooms were clean and nicer than we'd expected based on other places we'd stayed in New Zealand. Our only complaints were the lack of air conditioning (it was hot while we were there) and having a handicap room with a wet shower (booked late).... More

We had two nights here in Jan 2013, and it’s a great base to explore the area from. The welcome we had was very warm, the room was massive and spotlessly clean. Bathroom was a little on the small side, but clean and perfectly functional. Kitchen was nicely equipped and there was free wifi which was great. The surrounding area... More

We journeyed to Christchurch after a long afternoon of driving from the West Coast. Mike was so welcoming and had our rooms ready. He is the perfect host! Our rooms were fantastic - nice firm beds with small kitchenette, french press coffee makers, refrigerator and even a spa bath! We loved this place and will totally come here again. We... More

We spent three nights here whilst sorting out some business in Christchurch and what a great choice we had made. The motel room was lovely, spectacularly clean and everything we required was supplied. The kitchenette was well stocked, and the bathroom was quite lovely. We received a warm welcome from Mary and Mike and also Trish and we will be... More

I initially thought the rate was a bit high, but I had not shopped around in Christchurch to know for sure. We were tired and booked for the night and were very pleased. As the other reviews say, it was very clean and well appointed. The large spa-tub hit the spot too, and we decided to stay a 2nd night.... More

Mike and Mary rightly deserve their #1 rating. Everything is perfect!! What is not to like? What could be improved? Nothing! Their accomodation is central for such an amazing choice of restaurants serving breakfast, lunch and dinner all within very short walking distance. We stayed 3 nights and found that we could do everything that we wanted on foot. No... More

We booked a night at Lorenzo Motor Lodge and look forward to staying at our room with double spa. However, we couldn't get there because of the adverse weather in the west coast. A bridge was gone and we could not arrive at Christchurch from Fox Glacier in one day. The owner had hold our room for us without knowing... More

We stayed while visiting family for Christmas. It is a very central position for eateries / parks and despite being on a busy main road is very quiet and peaceful. The owner was very welcoming and helpful and it was a very pleasant experience overall.
