We stayed in a two bedroom unit and found it to be clean, very comfortable and had everything we needed for a one night stay for our family of four. The owners were very friendly and helpful with some good local information.

Stayed two nights here. This motel is clean, comfortable and has everything you would expect of an apartment. We found the beds and linen to be excellent and slept really well. It is in a good location for the CBD and has super friendly and helpful owners.

We almost missed this place when checking Christchurch accommodation but thanks to TripAdvisor's reviews we booked a 2 bedroom unit and were pleased we did. While a little dark and small our ground floor unit had everything we needed for our stay. Most importantly it was warm (when it was minus 4 overnight!). The hosts are really friendly and helpful with useful directions and advice about what was available. The city is only a few minutes' walk away as is an excellent café around the corner. Would have no hesitation in recommending.

We only stayed for a night here with our friends in the 2 bedroom apartment- it was lovely - clean comfortable and warm. Our host Carol was helpful and friendly - we chatted with her for ages about Christchurch. It was also a very central location to stay! Thankyou for making our stay in this beautiful city a very memorable one!

With accommodation in Christchurch at a premium, this place was a great surprise. The rooms are lovely, very clean and just across the road from the casino. A group of us stayed there and everyone was very happy with their rooms and the owners were super helpful.. We will definitely be back next year...

Room Tip: Rooms are priced according to their size ( ie extra living room area etc) so let that be your judge...

On our late arrival, we were shown to our room, the Penthouse, and on a chilly night we were welcomed to a warm, cosy, large, stylish room. Lovely bouncy carpet, underfloor heating, modern kitchen, bathrooms, tv etc. The apartment was very clean and felt like a home away from home. Did I mention the furnished balcony? Fab. The beds and pillows were so comfortable that we immediately fell into a deep, restful sleep.
Carol and Roy are proud Cantabrians, and gave us lots of options of where to dine within walking distance,(in some funky, start-up areas!) which were great, and up-to-date information of where to explore and support the local economy:)
This is a perfect, central, comfortable place to stay in Christchurch. We will be back.
Thank you, Carol and Roy, for your hospitality and wonderful stay. CHRISTCHURCH IS COOL!!!

Room Tip: The Penthouse is very special, and good value.

Never to sure about staying at a motel but this place is fantastic. I'm normally very fussy but couldn't fault this place. From the location, to some over the best customer service. Rooms are new and clean. Couldn't ask for much more
