What a lovely clean tidy motel with great hosts. Nothing was a problem and they were only too happy to chat about the city, the history and give directions. A friendly wave each day from the office certainly put a smile on our dials. If we return to Christchurch, we would definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: The main road is quite busy, so if you are a light sleeper I would ask for a room away from the main road.

This hotel is okay
I have stayed at other hotels in Christchurch and I prefer them.
The rooms are pretty small and noisy.
People talking outside, walking upstairs, dragging furniture in their room upstairs was all too loud
And it is on a busy road, lying in bed listening to trucks going past makes sleeping difficult
The internet access was not free. We got 300 mb to use free, which expired after 5 days. Once we had used it up we had to pay for more, even after we had been there for 5 days.
I would have thought that if someone stayed for one night and was allowed to use 300mb that they would give us 300mb for each day we were there.
I found the heater difficult to set. It's just a dial so I didn't know how far to turn it to be comfortable. It took us a few nights of waking up in a sweat to finally work out where to have the dial
The hot water in the shower is difficult to regulate
There are no good restaurants in walking distance . Robbie's across the road is pretty average
Overall, it's a motor inn. It's okay for a short stay on the way through.

Stayed at the motel in June. Would recommend to anybody. Lovely and clean, modern rooms and decent water pressure in showers! Thanks Sandy for the chat. If ever back that way you will be the first place to stay.

I stay at this Motel every 5 weeks for a couple of nights.
The rooms are always clean and tidy, and the owners are always friendly and helpful. Greg and Sandy are always happy to have a chat, and show genuine interest in their guests.
First pick for me in Christchurch - every time.

Room Tip: I personally prefer the ground floor rooms.

Booked 3 units and the booking handling was great. Booked over the phone, confirmation via email, and clear and concise details of after-hours checkin.

Rooms were modern, clean and with all the amenities needed for an overnight stay.

15-20 minutes from the airport
