The room were clean but a bit outdated, the room furniture in particular looked tired. Unfortunately the bathroom was in disrepair, evidence of mould in the shower tiles. The location is handy to shopping with a eateries further down Riccarton Road

Stayed in room 810 and noted when filling bath no blind on bathroom window which was right at top of stairway that everyone uses and can see into. Clean and tidy though, just please put a blind up. Also no where to leave key at reception as I left very early in the morning so had to leave room unlocked.

This motel is well located in Christchurch Motel Zone, pretty easy to access from airport, surroundings are nice and convenient, many shops, and westfield mall. However, we stayed with booking on line, they mess-up our booking, which we need re book again, very lucky we got the room to stay, however, their attitude and lack of customer service skill made...

Great place to stay. Nice and peaceful but not too far from the Riccarton mall. There were 5 in our family and our unit was great. I would not have any issues in staying here again or to recommend to others to stay. Thanks for a great stay

My husband and I stayed in the hotel with our 12month old son. It has a lovely bathroom with huge spa bath which was a nice touch, and a nice little area to have a drink outside while our son fell asleep. Its nothing special but its fairly new and very clean.

I was needlessly concerned that this was the only place with 4 rooms available with the Cricket World Cup in town. Very nice modern room with all the amenities. Very new and tidy premises.

The room was a bit tight but contained everything you will want for a comfortable stay. The bathroom was spacious however and had a lovely shower. There is a well equipped kitchenette. Located in Ricarton road, there many convenient shops and small cafes, take aways and restaurants near by. Good laundry area available also and large car park.

I stayed at this motel with my moderately mobility impaired father. I asked for a ground floor apartment if possible and this request was granted. We had a warm welcome on arrival. The room was comfortable and met our needs more than adequately. It had a large enough spa bath and very comfortable beds with good linen. Unfortunately the cleaning... More
