Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed May 19, 2013

This motel is extremely clean, comfortable and really well presented. We were there in the cooler months. the room was really warm. The shower is excellent. Really strong pressure. They peovide quality shampoos and hand wash The staff are really helpful and friendly. The motel is really close to Riccarton Mall and close to great restaurants. Would definitely stay here again.

We had been booked for the Amore motor lodge for a single night stay, we had a reservation but they were full and referred us to the Metropolitan across the street . We stayed in the 2 bedroom compact apartment. The apartment was spotlessly clean and stylish, but the reason I decided to wrote the review was the bathroom which was modern and equipped with exceptional amenities including Spa body wash and shampoo. A heated towel bar and heater for the room. The shower stream was very powerful and nice and hot. It was the best shower I have ever had and I didn't want to get out. The room was also equipped with a French press which was very nice as other more expensive hotels had only instant coffee available. I was very impressed by the owners, Joy and Michael, they were very hospitable and friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our one night there.

Staff were friendly and helpful. Was fantastic to be so close to the mall and grocery store. The bed was comfy and the room was well layed out. Immaculately clean. Would definitely stay there again next time!

The Metropolitan has friendly and helpful staff/owners.

Rooms are clean, neat and fresh.
Bathrooms are bright and modern.
The proximity of Westfield Riccarton and nearby restaurants is a major bonus, within walking distance.
Parking onsite wasn't a problem
Easy to get to, find and get around to nearby points of interest.

Only drawback was noisy fridge

Friendly helpful hosts. Immaculate and well designed rooms. Comfy large beds. Happy for early check in's and able to book cheap airport taxis too! The perfect little stopover before flying out. Loved the spa bath.

A good road for shops/restaurants too.

I've stayed here three times and enjoyed it. There is a fair amount of variation in the rooms - I found the lower rooms at the very back to be the best. The bedding is quite comfortable and the Internet, which on every one of my stays was included for free, is one of the fatest connections I've encountered. The complex is maintained by its owners, so do enquire beforehand if you plan on checking-in late. Riccarton Rd is one of the busiest roads in Christchurch and, irrespective of room choice, you can hear the road traffic through the walls. That said, I've never had a problem sleeping and the location very close to the Riccarton Mall has always proved ideal for me. It's a short car or shuttle trip to the airport too (though so is pretty much anywhere in Christchurch).

Room Tip: Lower rooms at the very back generally have the best layout.

Location is good, close to everything. Room was modern, and tidy. Even had a spa bath : ). Only issue I had with the hole thing was we were in a down stairs room and every time the people above us had a bath or shower all the noise was coming down to our room when we were trying to sleep. Not sure if this can be fixed or not. But overall thought it was very good with friendly and funny staff. Well definitely be back.
