Host Paul was extremely helpful and friendly and took time to show us an apartment before we booked. The two bedroom apartments are luxuriously appointed and spotlessly clean. The full sized kitchen was well equipped and the option of having breakfast contents delivered the night before allows you to eat at whatever time you like - great if you want... More

This is a hard one to review. We stayed here because ChCh was full so not a place we would usually choose. Our apartment was a 2 bedroom, all they had left and fine for us as a couple - but no dishwasher and only 1 bathroom which if we were there with kids would have been disappointing (we stay... More

We are reasonable regular travellers to Christchurch and have stayed at a number of motels in Papanui Road or Bealey Avenue. We found that the Randolph is the best value for money. All of our trips have been during the busy Christmas period. The Randolph has bigger rooms, was very clean and cooking facilities and washing machine/dryer was included in... More

This is our second stay here, we have a one bedroom unit for a week, it is perfect. Tastefully furnished and decorated, washer/dryer is so handy in our unit. All modern appliances, and enjoyed our own private courtyard.

Honestly was a little bit skeptical when my colleagues suggested this place for a one-night stay. In the end, very satisfied! Clean & spacious room with self-sustained amenities. Also came with free 10G-worth of free wifi (some places around town don't offer this much even if you are paying for it!)

There is no dishwasher in the 2 bed/2 bathroom unit. What about hygiene really this was not up to standard for such accommodation. When one books the "family" unit with sleeping/beds arranged for 5 people and a port a cot all set up prior to our arrival. We were most upset to be asked by management how many people were... More

Is an excellent place to stay, is really clean with all mod cons - cooking facilities and in room washing machine and dryer. Fabulous bed and close to shops. Owners are friendly and room is serviced daily, no need to use air conditioning as room is very cosy, highly recommended

The Papanui road location is handy to the city, and the in-room facilities are good for business travellers - work desks, good wifi, plenty of power points, washer/dryer, ironing etc. Comfortable, quiet, and clean. Suggest phoning to make bookings, particularly if you need flexibility on number of nights, or trying to book far in advance, as the on-line AA booking... More

I rung to make an inquiry and all I asked was if there was availability on a certain date. I got a "no i don't" reply and that was that!! I've never come across someone so rude on the phone and the worst thing is, when you go and book online it says the date I was looking at is... More

We spent two nights at the Randolph and enjoyed our stay. Our studio unit was tidy and well presented. Peter at the desk was most helpful providing us instructions on getting around the city dodging street closures. Their location is excellent situated on Papanui Road close to the city centre Just 200 meters up the road is a nice cafe... More
