We booked a room with shared bathroom but the friendly-receptionist offer us to upgrade the room. It is not just a room, but a house i reckon! it is fully equipped with small living room, kitchen facilities, bathroom with tub which makes it a perfect stay! It is quite a big space for only two of us but we loved...

It's not new but it's in better condition than my house. It's clean, conveniently located, and really good value. With nice people running it why would you want to stay anywhere else? This is the third time I have stayed and it won't be the last.

A very warm, friendly welcome. Good location and did the job. Signs of wear and tear (pots and iron) but was clean, had everything we needed, space to relax, and was value for money. As with everywhere in Christchurch, building noise from next door couldn't be helped. Free 500mb Internet a day with Zenbu wasn't really enough though, but saying...

My partner and I visited here assuming we'd paid for a full function room cause that's what we were told (i.e With a toilet, shower etc) but instead what they had given us was a room with a bed with an electric blanket that didn't work, a barely functioning fridge and a jug. We had to share a bathroom and...

Pleasantly surprised by this motel... Yes great value for money. And ok it's a bit old in places but the rooms were large, the heaters worked. The bathroom has been updated and everything was spotlessly clean. We also got free extra wifi no problems. Recommended if you're after simple but value for money.

We stayed there with the family to stay over before embarking on a road trip. The service was good and friendly, facilities were clean. It is in a busy road, but we had a unit at the rear of the section so it was quiet. I'll give it the thumbs up for more functional than ambience.
