I booked a studio room at this Motel as it was close to the railway station for the Trans Alpine Express,, we arrived to find we had been upgraded into a 1 bedroom assisted unit - at no charge - the unit was spacious with high quality furniture & fittings - extremely well equipped with a wet area bathroom - heated towel rail very comfortable bed & outside garden area, The hostess was so friendly & informative - giving us a discount voucher for a resturant within walking distance & taking us to the station next morning & offering to pick us up on our return from our overnight stay in Greymouth - holding our luggage for us as well. We arrived back to be welcomed like old friends & our luggage had been left in our room which was a studio- once again very spacious, clean & comfortable, with our own deck she arranged a taxi for us to go into Christchurch central the next day for a tour & also our shuttle back to the airport the following day - while this is not a central city location for walkers, it is only a short trip by car & I strongly recommend it to anyone looking for affordable comfort close to the station & Addington Race Course I would definately go again!

We found clean rooms in an apartment-like suite that really felt like a sort of villa. The place feels very new and even somewhat on the luxurious side. The host was extremely accommodating, and chock-full of helpful information about the area.

My one disappointment is that it is not well-located for travelers who intend to explore Christchurch on foot; it is on a busy road, and is probably just a little too far from the middle of town for walking there and back. It *is* quite close to the train station, which is nice if you're planning to take the rail trip across the Southern Alps.

Tower Junction is a very nice motel - we had a spacious room with a good bed, new furniture and a well equipped kitchenette (both microwave and two gas cooking plates). The bathroom was new as well and spotlessly clean. The hosts were really friendly and gave us lots of information about sightseeing in Christchurch. Wifi is available against a charge.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the end, away from the busy street.

It's a motel but it's clean and new inside and out. Towels and sheets are really soft. The heater in the room and the bathroom (and for the towels) worked great (these are the first heaters that have worked on our trip and they work well). It's in a residential area. We called when we arrived at the train station and the motel manager picked us up. In the morning we had to catch another train and they drove us back to the train station. They let us leave our luggage when we went on the Trans Alpine train trip for the day. There is a washer and dryer on the premises. 10 minute walk to a few strip mall type in formal restaurants (the owner pointed us to them). We loved Sami's Slovaki and Kebabs.

We stayed at the Tower Junction Motor Lodge for one night as we were catching the Tranzalpine early in the morning and this place is practically next door. We stayed in a twin room and were really impressed with the quality and cleanliness of the room. Recommended.
