“5 star amenities within a motel... GREAT!”
Reviewed December 19, 2011

Our last 2 days in New Zealand, we decided to stay in Terra Vive and explore both Christchurch and Akaroa… the liked the location since it is right on Bealey Avenue, close to the city centre but easy to get to the airport as well…

I must confess that this was one of our favorite places in NZ… for 175 we had a top notch unit with an amazing spa bathroom, including a fantastic bathtub, fluffy quality towels and linens, huge 52” flat screen, amazing bed, kitchen, washing machine and dryer and a small sofa as well… they also provide free wifi and cable…

The owner of the place was very accommodating and helpful with our queries…

Overall, I think this place is bang for the buck, since has a truly 5-star feeling for a relatively cheap price in an expensive city… I would definitely recommend it to other visitors to CHC…

We arrived to a lovely smiley welcome and a wonderful room. This was a great start point to our holiday and we highly recommend it. The room has all amenities including a fantastic spa bath and large on wall TV. We had a balcony and the bed was one of the most comfortable. The room had a washer and a dryer and ironing facilities. There was good off road parking and the apartment is within easy lacking distance of many amenities. Well worth visiting and we will do so again.

Room Tip: We had an upper room.

Arrived after a gruelling flight from Singapore and what a haven! Beautifully furnished and well appointed Apts. Very tasteful. Comfortable bed and good facilities for laundry with small kitchenette. Would highly recommend a stay here.

We booked as a result of all the fab reviews for theTerra Vive - we weren't dissapointed. Great main road Location for all the major connections and eating places. Staff were always helpful and resourceful.The room was well appointed with a spa bath tub, if you have the energy to use it and laundry facilities (washer & dryer and soap powder) very useful after a being on the road.

Good selection of Crockery, cuttlery and microwave not forgetting salt n pepper!

Generally we found all the accomodation to good standard in New Zealand and specially if you are working to a budget - book the most ecconomical or search for last minute bargain, there are plenty to be had.

We stayed here on our honeymoon, and based on the reviews we thought was going to be really nice.

The room was ok, very basic. The fittings were not completed in our bathroom, and there was mold on the back of our curtains. Our room got all of the noise from the road, so our sleep was very disrupted.

Upon check in, the manager/owner did not appear to be ready for us and left us waiting while he organised himself.

I would be finding somewhere else to stay next time we visit Christchurch.

I stayed here for one night in a 2 bedroom self contained unit ( I was upgraded). It was a great size and had perfect amenities.

Not sure what the other poster is talking about re: the earthquake being a year ago. That may be so, but it is blatanly obvious that the city is in ruins and that there would be workers staying in Christchurch. Not to mention people who need accommodation who's houses have been affected!

The service was great and the room perfect, clean and well maintained.
