“Clean and comfortable”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

We booked this motel on-line the night before our arrival in Christchurch, after trying some other higher rated options (many were sold out). Randolph's turned out to be perfectly comfortable, clean, and the service was professional and prompt. Perfect with our car as we were easily mobile to drive around town and needed parking. We had a one-bedroom suite with spa tub. It was larger than we needed, but all that was left when we booked. It was lovely, spacious, clean, and quiet. Furniture was a bit dated in style, but not a big drawback. Great place!

I stayed at the Randolph Motel on business in March 2013. My room was more like an apartment. It was a 1 bedroom apartment with a Kitchen (Stove, Oven, Full Refrigerator and Microwave). Comfortable leather couch and chair in the living room with smallish flat screen TV and SKY TV channels. The bedroom was a king size bed very spacious. The bathroom was average size, single sink with a separate tub and stand up shower along with a Washer and Dryer. Although this Motel was very comfortable I'm rating it a 3 out of 5 for the 2hr limit of Internet. I was there for business and this was not enough. It is 2013, even Mcdonalds has Free Wifi 24hrs a day - shouldn't Hotels provide this as well - especially for business travelers. The staff was very warm, welcoming and friendly I must note...

I had book into this motel and received a message saying booking had been cancelled. This was two days after I had booked. Rang the owner who was a rude arrogant man. We stay in Chch several times a year but would not use this place.

The day before I was scheduled to arrive I received a message saying that my booking had been cancelled - the owners had accepted another later booking.

Nice facility but not suitable if you are relying in the booking.

We were earthquake refugees and very glad we found ourselves at the Randolph. The room finishing was modern cosy and comfortable with everything we could want. Friendly owners looked after us very well and were happy to accommodate our special requests and arrangements.
We have stayed at five other places so far and will reccomend

Room Tip: We had a studio and it was specked out beyond our wildest dreams

These motel/ apartments are the best accommodation i have ever stayed in.

My partner and i have stayed here on multiple occasions and will continue to stay here whenever we are in christchurch. This is the sort of accommodation you could only wish you could find every where you stayed.
The owner/manager strives to keep his accommodation clean well serviced and always up to date. Rooms have great kitchen washing and bathroom facilities. The bathrooms are wonderfull and clean. The showers have very good water preasure as does the spa bath. Takes hardly anytime to fill the tub for a relaxing soak.
I would have no hesitation in recommending the Randolph as a classy absolutely great value for money accommodation choice.
My partner and i have spent about 200 nights in motels/ apartments or Hotels over the last 6 years. The Randolph is our favourite and leaves most other places in its dust.
Everyone i have ever told to stay there has loved it and now also continue to stay there.
Thanks for the great service Randolph.
