great place on Riccarton, one of Christchurch's busiest streets. Interior was clean and the kitchen was well equipped, even with an oven which we appreciated. The sofa bed was a bit creaky and stained though. The other beds were nice and comfortable and heating was good. 15 mins walk to Pak n Save supermarket, but lots of other food and... More

We stayed here for 5 nights and found it really handy. It was close to Riccarton mall with lots of shopping and a stone throw away from Hagley Park. We had a two bedroom unit and it was spacious and clean. The free internet worked really well. Every morning we got the morning paper wich was really nice. It was... More

We stayed in a 2 bedrooms unit for a night. The place was cozy and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful, and gave us a free map and showed us some locations. This motel is located in a good position, it close to the park ,restaurants and not far from the shopping mall.

We booked a two-bedroom and a studio for five people. The rooms were spotless. This is a 1960s or 1970s motel, showing its age in some ways - fewer power points for the tech items we use nowadays, for example. But it made up for it in others, like the helpfulness and friendliness of the hosts, the spaciousness of the... More

Stayed overnight in this motel and quite honestly found the staff to be more than helpful, the rooms impeccably clean and tidy and the location excellent. We would not hesitate to recommend this establishment to everyone.

The motel is very clean and tidy. Kitchen is complete with oven, microwave, stove and fridge. Pots, pans and cutleries are all neatly kept in cabinets and all looks clean and tidy. We stayed for 2 nights and was pleasantly surprised that they serviced our room in between. Some eating places nearby though we didn't try. Overall we had a... More

We very much enjoyed our stay here. Well located with a nice walk through the gardens to the CBD. The room was well appointed with everything we needed and lots of little touches. Very clean. We would stay here again.

This is the best motel that I have ever lived. Location, equipment and staff are all outstanding. The staff helped me to book a taxi at 4 am and told me that the price was $34. I forgot to ask if it is a fixed price. When the taxi arrived, the driver used the meter and charged me $43 instead.
