I booked a 2 bedroom "Luxury Suite" at Salerno for 3 nights and was so disgusted that we left after 2 nights (without any refund) and continued our stay elsewhere. The website advertised full in room laundry facilities and we only had a washing machine that was too filthy to use - when I complained the first time I was... More

We are truly disgusted by this rave review, look through all our reviews on tripadvisor, most of guests left us very fair comments, however this one is absolutely dishonest. The reason behind that was this guest had a plan change and they wanted check out early without any penalty while they knew the policy was there, in order to get... More

We stayed one night after flying in from Edinburgh. We had a studio room which exceeded all expectations, being very spacious with a supremely comfortable king size bed, and with a really decent shower over spa bath. Would happily recommend and would definitely stay again.

We stayed 1 night (Friday night) whilst recently spending 24 hours in Chch. The hotel is lovley and clean, and very spacious. There was a little grime build up in the bathroom along the window sills, nothing that bothered me too much, but also worth mentioning to have addressed. Bed was super comfortable. The only reason it does not get... More

I stayed at the Salerno on a business trip recently and had a pleasant stay. The road was quite busy in the evening but was fine throughout the night. The room was very spacious and I had a desk to work at. The shower was good and had plenty of amenities. The motel is very close to town and walking... More

Room was comfortable and clean but considering our stay I think you could get better value. We were beside the stairs, also I think the laundry as it sounded like a commercial dryer going most of the night, very noisy. The owner was not very friendly. The bench top in kitchen was cracked and the bathroom unit was also cracked,... More

Great location. Well appointed apartment. The apartment was clean and tidy, spacious and quiet considering it was on Bealey Avenue. Lovely décor, fresh and modern. On arrival, the staff were welcoming. The price was mid-range and considering the size of the apartment and the facilities, most impressed. Our unit had a washing machine and provided powder. Open kitchen, dining and... More

Salerno Motel Apartments was the last place we stayed in NZ. We really appreciated the spacious apartment as we needed to repack our suitcases in preparation for our flight home the next day.
