If you are coming on winter time please make sure there is room heater on your room. We came here at the end of summer and it was raining, for that the room was cold and we hadn't find any room heater. We had bed heater which is not good enough. The stuff wasn't good enough....😡😡😡

I booked in here because Christchurch was super full and it was all I could find so my expectations weren't high. Based on this I was happy with my stay, my room was aged, basic but well cleaned. Staff were very friendly and helpful. They need netting curtains though.

We booked online and thought it was a great deal and so easy considering we were coming Boxing Day. Staying one night and was extremely disappointed with this place. Booked for myself, partner and son. Dust everywhere. Stains on the sheets and carpet. Looks like no body has bothered to look behind beside table or tv. Not ideal parking unless... More

I phoned the Hotel directly to ensure a sofa bed was made up as two single girls. This was not done, we arrived late so I did not want to disturb manager and took a sheet off the double bed. No milk in the fridge. These things mentioned by phone, manager took no responsibility and did not discount either. I... More

when booking online I should have checked out some reviews, fortunately I was only booked in for one night $100. Staying in the middle of winter my first room was freezing and stunk, obviously why all its windows were left open. The furniture was covered in stains while the carpet was also. The room was very dated. I than asked... More

Handy to everything. Very tidy units. Great price. No complaints. Not much road noise. Hosts were very friendly. Good parking. Free laundry facilities. Hardly any noise from other guests. Stayed three nights. Room servicing daily to high standards. Happily recommend.

Glad we only stayed one night here as the carpets were really stained and the room just felt unclean. The shower felt as though you were going to fall through it and the free wifi that is advertised is so slow it won't even load an internet page. Overall we were disappointed with the stay at this place, however it... More

While this motel wasn't super modern, it was comfortable and fine for our needs. Despite being on the main road it was pretty quiet which was good, and the location close to the Westfield Riccarton, city centre and the airport was good. The easy access to the laundry was great also.
