A great motel with kitchenette and other breakfast essentials. A short walking distance to burger king which is superb for supper. Nothing to complain except remember to take the tea/coffee creamer/milk from the receptions.

I was incredibly surprised coming into this place! The room was quite large, comfortable bed, great kitchen unit with microwave and even hot plates. They gave us a small bottle of milk on the way in which was much better than the little milks you usually get at other hotels. The main issue we had was with our key/lock on... More

We stayed for three nights. Pros - good location on Bealey Ave, unit was spacious, wifi worked pretty well, good electric blankets on the beds. Cons - carpets and bed covers were stained, no smoke detector in our unit, mold in bathroom, big shower but curtain only covered 2/3 of it. The baseboard was ripped off in our bathroom, and... More

This is a clean well appointed motel in a central location. The downside is the road noise. A pair of air plugs would eliminate the only downside of this motel. Would stay again with ear plugs or ask for a room away from the road, I was in Unit 4 which was upstairs. Free Wifi.

To be honest, for a place listing $150 a night for a 2 bedroom motel apartment, I wasn't expecting much. So when we arrived on the premise I literally had my jaws dropped...the place is great. Really great. The apartment room has a very spacious living room area, and the rooms are spacious as well, very useful to sort out... More

I have stayed at the Southern Comfort Motel twice now and each time I have had an excellent experience. It is excellent value for money. Good location - although not in the centre of Christchurch, plenty around. The rooms are spacious, clean and tidy and the services are great. Staff are friendly and helpful. I have loved both stays here... More

A very comfortable motel. The unit we were in would be very suitable for persons with mobility issues. The unit was very clean though the courtyard at the rear of the unit does need some tender loving care.

Convenient location to the city. As a business traveller accommadation criteria covering location and available facilities are essential. Local Restaurants are all within walking distance. Good Internet access is essential. However this fails dismally. Internet access was not only extremely poor & slow but kept dropping out. To the point of being unusable. Very frustrating. Road access from a busy... More

Motel room was comfortable for a 3 day stay. The cleaning lady was friendly and helpful. Problems were encountered in other areas. On arrival we asked where the local bus went from to go to the centre of Christchurch. Reception lady did not appear to know what we were talking about and unable to give us any info. We later...

Arrived at 2pm and room had not been cleaned even though check-in started at 1pm. when cleaning was was done it was not satisfactory, mould in shower, broken glass outside entrance and dust and cobwebs through out. Staff seemed confused and unprofessional. Staff tried to have me pay for the same room 3 times. Motel itself was dated and tacky.... More
