175 Metropolitan Executive Motel on Riccarton
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 30, 2009

We recent stay on a buiness trip and had a wonderful time. Your website is wonderful and very well done especially the beautiful photos. The photos of the spa bath was breathtaking and the photo that won us over to book with you. The photos are exactually what you get.

The rooms are very well dectorated and very tasteful. Lovely the colours.

The whole studio was well presented and extermely clean.

Great location, Riccarton Mall just a mintue away, buses at the door and only a 5-7 mins to the heart of Christchurch. You have everything around you so you don't miss not being in the heart of the city. Which I enjoyed.

You were wonderful hosts and very helpful, friendly and would do anything I belive for your guests.

I would highly recommend anyone to stay with you and one of my staff have already been there for a weekend. We are coming up again shortly for another business trip and you will be our first call for accommodation.

Keep up the great work and you should be very proud of what you are accomplishing.

We spent one night in Christchurch and the Metropolitan was great. Clean accommodation, with probably the nicest bathroom we had the entire trip. Huge jacuzzi tub, even the towel rack heated up with a switch!

We misunderstood and thought the wireless internet was free, which it apparently isn't, but they ended up not charging us because of the confusion. Much appreciated.

The parking lot is a plus!

James and Sharon are excellent hosts to this wonderful motel... we only stayed for two nights but the place was fantastic - so clean and lots of space for the little one to crawl around!
The kitchen was very well equipped.
The location is excellent too - Westfield is only 100m up the road so good for stocking up on supplies.
When we head back to South Island again, we'd definitely consider staying here.

We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment here in November last year. The rooms were lovely, clean and modern with a few little extras such as great plunger coffee and a washer dyer in the kitchen. There was a TV in the living area plus one in each bedroom - which the children loved :)

We were greeted warmly each time we spoke with our hosts, and they answered all our touristy questions with a smile. There is ample parking on site.

Very convenient to the local Westfield shopping centre and a number of restaurants. It is located on Riccarton Road which is fairly busy, but we had a room at the rear and didn't hear any road noise at all

It is a little out of town but it didnt matter to us at all as we had a car. There did seem to be a lot of buses constantly driving by, so I 'm sure it would still be doable if you were reliant on public transport.

We also found the motel on Wotif but ended up booking directly on the website with their last minute rates as it was cheaper.

Will definitely stay here next time we are in Christchurch!
