Couldn't ask for much else from this place. The motel is centrally located, clean, run by friendly staff, good parking area, and was pretty much all that we needed during our 3 day stay in Christchurch. Super comfy and spacious units, which made us feel like we were coming back home at the end of each day.

Host also gave practical tips on restaurants. Wifi was on/off but I found that to be true for almost all accommodations I stayed in NZ. Location is about 10 minutes walk...

Nice hotels with small rooms. It seemed like a newer / upgraded construction. The room was clean. We however had issue with the ventilation. There wasnt any window to the room, so it was getting extremely hot. We told this to the hotel guys and they provided with a small fan. The fan didnt help much but we liked the...

Hotel is just an L shaped building. I had unit on the end and was impressed at how nice it was for such an affordable price. Walking distance to downtown Christchurch. Great location. Perfect for an American not yet used to driving on the left side of the road.

I stayed for four days in February 17. Henry and the team were fantastic and friendly. Went above and beyond my expectations. Great help in local and regional directions, recommendations and the little extras that really made the visit perfect. Very comfortable room, easy walk to center,..definitely will return. Thanks!
