I have stayed in this Motel many times and have stayed in a variety of units. As with all accommodation in Christchurch it is quite pricey at $160/night for one person but the rooms are immaculately clean, warm and very recently refurbished with each unit looking very different. Outside looks slightly dated but very tidy and lots of well tended... More

Reception very friendly. The motel looks a little older. It is rebfirbed inside and so clean. Really is home like and comfortable. Congratulations on a well kept motel. There are cooking facilities in the room and they are immaculately clean. All rooms have heating and electric blankets as Christchurch can get a little cool. Close to restaurants and shops -...

We only stayed one night but the room was perfect for us. Interesting decor, but super clean, massive spa bathtub, comfy bed and soft furnishings, well stocked kitchenette, milk and butter in the fridge, and lots of well thought out and generous organic amenities that you would see in any five star hotel. Easy 10 minute drive from the airport,... More

This was the perfect place for my family and 2 dogs to stay, friendly welcome when we arrived and the place was very clean and comfortable, even the dogs liked this one and they are very fussy... A must stay next time you are in Christchurch 😁😁😁

We originally booked via ‘Booking Dot Com’. Our room was upstairs over the laundry and although quite comfortable and warm, we found the traffic noise too much at night, so asked if we could be moved to another room. The hosts were very accommodating, and moved us to a room downstairs near the back. This room had a very nice... More

Check in was easy and simple. Was shown to room. Nice King size bed, very comfortable. Room had everything we needed. Good amenities and AMAZING soft towels! Nice and quiet considering location - we had one of the units at the rear. If we had to find a fault, some of the furnishings where slightly dated and carpet could be... More

Dont stay if street noise keeps you awake, I found it rather bad, other than that it was fine. 50+ Sky channels, nice and tidy, everything worked as it should, staff friendly and helpful. Handy to city centre and eating places a short car drive away
