Reviewed December 4, 2011

Stayed here a week on business. Room was a studio unit and quite small but it was fine for what I needed. The staff were very nice and the room was serviced quickly every day. Vehicle access to the premises was a bit of a nightmare during rush hours until I started to make use of the roads behind the site coming in from Riccarton Road rather than Blenheim Road heading west. The only thing I didn't like was the LCD TV was not set up to receive digital TV, it was all analogue, which meant a washed out stretched picture.

Stayed here for a month with work. Stayed in the studio apartment which is of good quality but a touch on the small side - like a hotel room with kitchenette.
Location is good, with easy access to central Christchurch. Owners can't do enough for you.
Rooms cleaned daily and staff very approachable if you have any issues.
Would I stay here again if I was paying (not my employers) - yes.

think this place should be higher up in the hotel listings and i cannot figure why it isn't. maybe it is the location or the cost of the rooms i don't know, i only stayed here overnight as a stopover on my way to new plymouth - recommended by a family member. i found the receptionist friendly, helpful and polite and they kindly kept my bags for a few hours after check out until i got my flight out. i didn't have much interaction with staff but what i did have was brilliant!

Booked this motel as a result of other reviews on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed. Our one-bedroom unit looked quite new with high quality furniture and fittings and was immaculately clean. The owner gave us a warm welcome and organised the free bus shuttle for us from right outside the motel to the railway station as we were taking the Tranzscenic Rail across to Greymouth the next morning. The motel was quite close to Hagley Park so we walked through Hagley Park into Cathedral Square in the evening, had a wander around, and walked back to the motel. Was probably about a 45 minute walk into Cathedral Square. We had a very comfortable stay at the Tower Junction Motor Lodge and returned for our last night in Christchurch.

I have stayed at Tower Junction on many occassions, it is ideally located and close to shopping mall and city centre. The units are of a high standard and very comforatable the large LCD TV in the lounge makes it a home away from home. Ivana is always pleasant and nothing is to much trouble for her. I would highly recommend Tower Junction to anybody staying in Christchurch whether it be work or pleasure.

This is a really great Motel if you're catching the Tranzcenic Railway from the station at Christchurch, with just a short walk, but the motel arranged a free 6.30am pick-up.
We stayed there for one night and had a family room for 5 adults, the room was perfect, clean and modern.
A bit of a trek to the town centre, but there is a couple of local restaurants and bars within walking distance.
The motel is located far enough away from the city as not to cause too much of a problem, and within easy reach of the airport.
Very helpful staff.

My husband and I needed a place to stay for the night before taking the TranzAlpine Scenic Train across New Zealand the next day. So we were looking for a place close to the train station. This lodge was the perfect spot. Lovely room, quiet for being in the city, and our host offered to drive us to the station the next morning (no charge!!) Very helpful. Would definitely stay there again, even if just checking our Christchurch for a couple days.
