Stayed for one night after flight into ChCh. Selected this accom based on fellow advisor's reviews and was not disappointed. Good location close to where I needed to be, easily accessible and quiet room despite it's main road location. Easy access parking bays outside rooms.

Room was high quality for a motor lodge and had all mod cons you could ask for, including washing machine and dryer in cleverly concealed laundry space. Room was cosy warm despite freezing temperature outside. Bed was very comfortable (soft without being too soft) and has electric blanket if needed.

Excellent bathroom of a good size for this style of property, with excellent water pressure and oodles of hot water. Shower is in a large spa bath which would be good for a soak if you so desired. Good selection of quality toiletries, of which the hand wash was a highlight.

Would readily recommend to those requiring short term stays with 1-2 persons for a couple of days.

Terra Vive suites is a short drive from the airport and is centrally located. The suites are complete value for money, spacious and have a functional kitchenette and good washer/dryer. There is ample parking too. There is a basket of goodies as welcome along with coffee/tea sachets and a beaker of fresh milk. The owner/manager is not always available, but that's ok - he makes you aware of his availability in advance. We stayed here for a total of 4 nights and had no reason to complain - the facilities were top class, with restaurants a short car drive away, or the restaurants are happy to deliver. the wifi connection was very poor though. Lovely porch at the back with a table and 2 chairs!

Stayed here for two nights in a spa room, room was very comfortable with a very comfortable bed, large flat screen TV and a washer and dryer which came in handy. Staff were friendly and helpful with directions around Christchurch.

Room Tip: I think all of the rooms would be good as ours was exceptionally clean but if you would like to rela...

We stayed her on a trip to the casino. The rooms were fantastic!! Very new, beautifully decorated and with everything you need. The casino was only a very easy 5 minute walk away and a delicious Thai shop 100m down the road. I would definitely reccomend this place.

Owner was very helpful and friendly. The rooms were great, very 'boutique' with trendy, new facilities and a large flat screen TV. Fabulous spa bath. There was a washing machine and tumble dryer in our kitchen which was just what we needed! There was a small terrace at the back of the room with table and chairs.
The owner provided complimentary snacks in a basket and was very helpful in arranging a free shuttle bus to the TranzAlpine Express Station.
Just across the road there is a good cafe for breakfast and a steak house about 10mins walk down the road.
Would DEFINITELY return.

My wife and stayed here on our first night in Christchurch in March 2012. Rooms were very well appointed, new and modern decor, large bathroom, comfortable bed, satellite tv and convenient location. It is located on one of the "four avenues" of Christchurch so it is a really busy street but the room was very quiet inside thankfully. Free internet was great. Very much recommended.
