Good value. Convenient. For city centre-a pleasant walk through the park. Choice of restaurants nearby. Free shuttle to train station but is only 10-15 main walk. Shuttle not free for return journey! Some passing noise at night but only what you would expect in any city.

Arrived 24th December 2012 Totally Love this place, very very Comfortable. Just Unfortunate to meet an angsty person because we accidently took his parking lot. Take note, Parking lot follows the room number.

Had an event in Christchurch where the whole family came over to Christchurch. Rented out 5 rooms for the lot. The rooms were big, well equipped and warm. It was cosy, clean and felt like a home. There was a guest laundery at the site. The hotel is very strategic. It is located a mere 5 minutes walk to Hagley...

Stayed at the Aalton motel when travelling with friends. The 2 bedroom unit was clean, spacious and well equipped, although a bit dated in decor. The shower pressure wasn't that great but otherwise everything worked well and the unit was very tidy and functional. The kitchenette was very well equipped and overall the unit was spacious and functional. Friendly owner....

Very comfortable self-contained unit with a double bed and 2 single beds. There's also a sofa bed. Wifi is available for free but capped to a max data of around 400mb (if I remember correctly). It was Xmas so we had to rent for the complete period of 4 nights, which was ok since we were basing our travels from...

We rented a 1BR unit for a night's stay, which was spacious and well appointed. Beds were very comfortable and the pull-out bed (queen-sized) wasn't too bad either. There is free WiFi (200MB/night's stay) included and convenient parking on the property itself. Motel is located near to lots of shops (eateries and nearby shopping malls) and the Hegley Park is...

We stayed one night at the Aalton late October 2012. It is well run, not modern but very clean, spacious and well appointed studio units: We thought the separate kitchen and the small courtyard at the back of our unit were really great. It is very well located: The Aalton is on Riccarton Rd with Hegley Park a short stroll...

Spent the night here because of situation. We were in a large studio unit down the back of the driveway which was absolutely perfect for us. No traffic noises as motel on a very busy main road. Lots of space and we had our own kitchen and large bathroom. Very clean and tidy. Although it is a bit dated we...

We had a great welcome and the owner took us to our lovely room. The room included free WiFi and convenient parking. We were given advice on where to eat locally by the owner and having taken his advice we had a great Indian meal two doors from the motel (the Arjee Bhajee). A minor grumble was that the bathroom...

Would highly recommend this motel. Iain is very hospitable and our unit was clean and comfortable. Very close to Hagley Park and a beautiful walk to the city. Plenty of food choices nearby. We would choose to stay here again if we revisited Christchurch. Iain, we bought some Glenmorangie to toast your hometown when we got home.
