“Suited my needs very well”
Reviewed February 3, 2013

The owners are friendly and helpful, bus stops right outside (and chch has the best bus system I've come across), and only 2 mins walk to sm block of shops with choice of takeaways and convenience store. I stayed in two rooms, the first twin studio beds not very comfortable, but no probs with the second, a single suite. Both had sep kitchens, and i was able to wash and dry a load of laundry. Its def not flash but not bad value for money either. I would stay there again.

Old and worn out. Stained carpets and bed speads, collapsed mattresses in both rooms. Heater in bathroom inoperative, doors that do not close properly. Room was advertised as having a washing machine but this was not the case. Laundry room located downstairs and behind the building, the washing machine did not work properly and neither did the dryer, $5 per wash. Everything is needing to be replaced but no money has been spent with the exception of a new sofa and tv, but this just highlights how revolting everything else looks. A really poor effort for NZ100 per night.

Room Tip: If there is no other option in Christchurch, maybe stay here.

It's a tidy motel with pleasant surroundings .The room is fully self-contained with kitchen/ bath / lounge / bed room. For a lovely mini suite cost even less than a single room inside the city. Enough off street parking. Only 5 minute walking distance to the city center, just on the other side of the Worcester Blvd. The Kiwi couple are nice and friendly. Good vale for your money!

Room Tip: Mini Suite is really good deal.

This is cheap accommodation about 10 minutes walk from Christchurch centre. It has clean, functional rooms, with all facilities for cooking. It supplies tea, coffee and toiletries (which is not the case with establishments of a similar price in Christchurch.) It has pleasant garden surrounds. Drawbacks, only two, it can be a bit of a walk to town and it is not in a safe area at night. The owners, who are a very pleasant couple, need to check all windows and catches. One of the handles on the window was slightly lose in my room and this can be enough to put me off staying again in a place. I am often a single woman traveller . However, if you are on a budget, it is a good price. It is also on a main regular bus route. The beds seemed Ok to me and it has excellent showers. It was $60 for my room and this was a one bed unit as I was travelling out of high season.

  • Liked — Good value for money
  • Disliked — Window latch needed securing and in a bit of a seedy area of Christchurch
