We booked in to this place for a night on our way through Christchurch and liked it so much that we decided to stay for 3 nights. The unit offered was clean and tidy and very little noise.

My husband and I spent only a night here, on the eve of our departure from New Zealand, but it was the perfect place in which to conclude our wonderful vacation.

Very happy with our short stay at this motel. We shared a two bedroom apartment with another couple. The apartment was very clean and the beds very comfortable. There were plenty of restaurants, cafes nearby. The manager was friendly and helpful. The location was great, only 10 min drive to the airport and 10 min drive to city centre.

Booked in as part of a large family wedding booing. Stayed 3 nights. Hosts were excellent - super friendly, exceptionally accommodating. Rooms were all very clean, very quiet, and provided with luxury toiletries (don't take them tho!).

Spotless and comfy though rather warm with no aircon. It was 34o! Nice toiletries. We had a studio room which was perhaps a little small though nice to be on ground floor in the earthquake! Good places to eat near by and small grocery shop a few hundred yards away towards town.

Nice rooms with good amount of space. Lots of kitchen utensils and pretty dishes. Good location, not far from the downtown area. Only 12 rooms, so not huge, and a nice family running the motel who were very helpful when we had repeated internet problems. Was this review helpful?
