We stayed in the one bedroom unit and it had heaps of space with all the comforts you could want. Its just a stone throw away from bars and restaurants also has free Wifi. Also close to railway station for Tranzalpine train trip and they give you a free shuttle to station. Would recommend staying here and would stay again.... More

The people were lovely, the room was spotless with a very comfortable bed. Rather small, would have been cramped if I was a couple. My unit looked like a sleep-out from the outside, but possibly one needs to make allowances for post earthquake Christchurch. Expensive for what it was, but very convenient for concert-going at the Horncastle arena.

Great Location, so close to all amenities, the owners are so obliging in all ways, walking distance to food outlets and restaurants, the only thing that i could fault was the shower! not enough pressure if any, but other then that , it was great for a over night stay or for a couple of days, very affordable

This motel is a little dated looking, but it was tidy, clean and very comfortable. We stayed for one night prior to catching the Tranz Alpine train and it was absolutely perfect. The hosts were lovely and dropped us to the train station at 7:30am for no charge. My only minor complaint is that there was a sign in the... More

A little old school in appearance, but that is not to say it's not comfortable, clean and a friendly service to go with. A complementary pick up from the train station was really helpful and kind of the owners. A nice little spot.

Very comfortable studio room with generous wifi in a location that's not beautiful but handy to the railway station, the town centre, and a few great places to eat. The host Andy was very friendly and helpful, and offers free pickup and drop off for train travellers. It's a 2km walk (or a $3.50 bus ride) straight down the road... More

We stayed here due to it's proximity to the train station for the Transalpine. The one thing I hadn't picked up when booking this motel was that the sleeping arrangement involved two separate sleeping areas. The living room has a king bed, and the 1 bedroom has two twin beds. There is a well-appointed kitchen, separate toilet, and shower room.... More

This motel was a short walk from the centre of Christchurch, only a few minutes from some great restaurants, and there is a ATM and supermarket about 15 minutes walk away. A bus taking you to all these places is right outside the door. My apartment was spacious and well equiped. The bed was comfortable and the windows open. It... More

Externally Addington looks a little tired but don't let this put you off. The studios and apartments are well presented, fresh, clean and comfortable with all the facilities you will need. Free WiFi is always welcome and the service was reliable and virtually unlimited. The location is great for local transport to the City or Westfield shopping as well as... More
