Opposite a major shopping mall and with bus stop within few minutes walk - on the route from Christchurch Airport - so very handy. Rooms are always well maintained. Double glazing ensures quiet and heat pump for warmth. Changed management since last stay but welcoming and efficient.

See comments about terrific response to lost property. Basically they went to alot of trouble to return it. Additionally, there was a warm and welcome greeting when we arrived on a wetand windy day. Location is handy (across the street) to an open-early cafe selling quite ok coffee and breakfast items.

Stayed 2 nights and very nice. Great location right opposite large shopping centre but wasn't noisy at all. Good room - very clean and staff came in each morning and tidied up. Nice little kitchen and bathroom. Very friendly owner and staff. Will definitely stay again.

The motel is very conveniently situated being so close to Riccarton Mall & numerous restaurants/pubs. Sound proofing in the room makes it relatively quiet even though it is situated on a busy road. Kitchenette well equipped and the bathroom bright, very clean and well equipped. The motel is advertised as being luxurious which is misleading because it is not luxurious... More

Hi Suzie, Thank you for your feedback, I apologize that the office wasn't open when you were wanting to check out. As you stated we are currently going through a change of management which has lead to a couple of wee admin issues in the short term. I can guarantee you that they will not be a problem next time...

We lucked out when our planned accom at another motel didn't have our booking and were full up - so we tried the Kauri - the kind lady at Kauri booked us in to a really nice room for the two of us - this motel is close to shops e.g. Katmandu and also some good food places, like the... More

I had a very comfortable stay at Kauri Motel. The bed was extremely comfortable, and it was a particularly chilly night in Christchurch and I was perfectly warm. I would definitely recommend staying here and would choose to stay again.

Best stay in Christchurch - no traffic noise but in very popular Riccarton! Friendly staff - very clean room. Bed was very firm. Room was nice and warm. Located across from Riccarton mall - supreme location.

During our stay the room was always spick and span . The bed was really comfy and just the right size for us. When we needed something to buy stuff it was easy since the mall was just across the road. There are quite a number of restaurants and pubs around the area. Kauri Motel's location is near or central... More
