These are nice units - you may want to have one of the back ones if you are noise sensitive as the road is very busy. Great owners who are really helpful. With a grab one voucher these are even more amazing value. The spa bath is a one person size and the bedroom is quite small but perfectly fine... More

Could not ask for more gracious and generous hosts, Maureen and Greg.. Add to that great accommodations at a very fair price and close enough to the CBD . Last-minute change of plans and unsuccessful internet search for accommodations led to us making many calls looking for last-minute (same night) reservations. We called the Fyffe, exasperated and expecting the same... More

As a motel - one of a huge line-up on Riccarton Road, I didn't have huge expectations for the Fyffe on Riccarton,however I was very pleasantly surprised. The offer of fresh milk at check-in was also most welcome, as one who hates that UHT! I was staying on business and the free wi-fi was certainly a bonus. The quality of... More

Very comfortable and quiet considering it is on a busy arterial route in an out of the city. Clean and well serviced, with shower over a spa bath.

We are very glad you enjoyed your stay and found the motel to be comfortable. All our rooms are double glazed which limits any road noise in all units and has proved to be very effective with many guests commenting on how quiet it is despite being on a main road.
