The Northcote Motor Lodge is a really nice place at an affordable price. The owners and staff are very friendly and accommodating, the rooms are large, comfortable, quiet and clean. The location is good, along a main road, and it's just a short drive into the city as well as to the airport. There's a 24 hour gas station next... More

Northcote Motor Lodge, Christchurch is well located. It’s near the Northland Mall and the city center and also close to the airport. The team which runs it is warm and friendly. The rooms are well appointed and functional. Recommended.

I was fortunate enough to stay at this motel for 4 nights in January and cannot praise Morag, Dave and the team enough for the quality of both the accommodation and service I received. From the moment I arrived the hospitality I received was at a very high standard and the whole team were lovely to deal with I found... More

We had to overnight in Christchurch with two doggies so I had to find pet friendly accommodation. Well, I don't think I could have chosen better! We stayed in a standard studio apartment which was very roomy and very clean. The bonus was that this studio (and the others in the same block) had a back door which led straight... More

This is a very conveniently located hotel, and although on the older side has everything you need for a great stay in Christchurch. Our unit was spacious, the facilities great (with kitchen provided) and the owners are lovely and very accommodating. Unfortunately I can't give this review 5 stars as the bed was the worst I've slept in in ages,... More

Room was clean and had a small kitchenette with enough to cook with. Room was clean and the beds good. The outlook was onto suburbia, petrol station one side homes to the other. Supermarkets...

I stayed here while up in christchurch for a concert. I picked Northcote as it was pet friendly and I wanted to take my dog. I phoned to make my booking as I wanted to just ensure "Stella" would be okay coming to stay with them. Morag was great and told me where would be a good place to park.... More

Northcote Motor Lodge is a great example of a classic New Zealand motel - for all the right reasons. We were a group of two couples and booked a one night stay here prior to taking an long haul flight from Christchurch International Airport.
