Very friendly and helpful proprieters. Room was clean and tidy with good amenities. Nice and close Hagley Park and good selection of restaurants 5 minutes walk away. It made a very pleasant stopover on the way to our Rail journey. The free shuttle service to the railway station was an unexpected bonus

What a pleasant surprise this motel was for us. Cleanliness, comfort, location and attention to detail. My husband noticed a crystal glass for his scotch rather than just glass. A lovely selection of teas and coffee. I stayed up way too late reading from a beautiful leather bound book of Buddhist Inspirations. We had stayed in a number of much... More

Really friendly, reliable and accommodating staff. Turned on the heat pump before I arrived so the room was warm. Showers were nice and hot. Quiet in the room I was given. Would stay again because of the great service.

Apart from the Chine Gardens in Bournemouth there isn't many parks in The City but the one in nearby Christchurch is very good. There are swings, slides roundabouts in a safe environment. The surface is soft if you fall so is great for the youngsters.

We stayed here for 2 nights. The location of the motel is great. On the park, walking distance to restaurants and close to riccarton mall. They were doing road work all night on the round about near it, which I could hear all night. The motel itself is very dated. Yes it was clean. The beds were less than average... More

Dear Mark. Thank you for the review. Sorry about the noise from road works. Unfortunately nothing we can do about it, Christchurch roads need to be repaired especially when lots of them were damaged by the earthquake. We did however offered you a room that is far from the road. We have plenty of spare pillows stored in the room's... More

We stayed here for 3 nights. Free parking, walk into Christchurch through the park is lovely, the Running Bull pub is around the corner and is a great place for dinner. A short walk away there's heaps more places to eat. The room was spacious. Older style but clean and comfortable. Would definitely stay here again.

Dear Stefan. Thank you for your review. I do agree that the bathroom could be a bit bigger but unfortunately this is the way it was built a few years back. I'm pleased that you had a good stay overall. If you decide to visit Christchurch again, please don't hesitate to call us. More

Handy central location, lovely hosts that were very welcoming. All amenities provided in a clean and comfortable manner. Situated right on the edge of Hagley park, direct trip to the motel from the airport.
