We only stayed here 2 nights but for the stay this place did its job. Centrally located and easily accessible to key public transportation (bus and train station) it was a perfect jump off. All you needed is in close proximity and you also had access to a local gym just across the street. I loved the jacuzzi tub especially after a long day of walking. The room was adequately equipped and the motel was quite. Our host was very friendly and most helpful. Although Christchurch is still recovering I would definitely come back to both the city and Roma! I just love New Zealanders!

Normally I won't stay in any hotel or motel in Christchurch because I live in Christchurch. Because of earthquake, my house have to be fixed for few weeks, I need somewhere to stay. Roma is a nice place, the location is handy, it is in the Riccarton area. Close to the shopping centre and restaurants. Their rooms are nice and clean. They have free wifi and gym that locate at another side of the road. I just love it. Friendly owners.
I am highly recommend to stay in this Motel, especially people like my situation.

It was a lovely surprise to find this motel - instead of the bland boring interior that you find at most motels our unit was decorated with warm golden colours and had furniture that was attractive. We loved the colours the owners had chosen as made a welcoming change from white or grey. Then bed was really comfortable and the room had good heating. Although on a very busy road we didn't notice it and slept well - we were there on Fri and Sat nights which is when it would be most noisy. As everyone else has said the hosts were very polite and seemed genuinely pleased to see their guests.

Room Tip: back from the road best

Great motel, very close to everything. Hagley Park, restaurants, Westfield shopping centre all close by. Tidy units and great room service. The management was friendly and helpful. Our unit was peaceful considering being on the busy Riccarton Rd. Also the rooms are spacious and warm. The free wifi was handy too. I recommend this motel

Just got back from a business trip to Christchurch. It was winter, and the rooms was quite cold when I arrived. Thankfully they had an electric blanket already warming up the bed, which was a very nice touch. The room was had a good little kitchen area and overall was quite clean. Also, the staff were very helpful and nice, and there was free WIFI. The location was fairly central and located near some good restaurants. For example, the Ground Floor Cafe across the road made an excellent breakfast and artistic & tasty lattes. My latte had a bear face on it!

On the flip side, the entrance was a bit weird. It's a sliding door with blinds that you need to fight through to get into the room. Also the furnishings and bathroom fixtures (sink cabinet, shower, etc.) were very basic and the room was a bit noisy. At about 4am there was quite a bit of talking and traffic in the parking lot immediately outside the room.

For the price we found it a bit average. I think it was about $30 per night over-priced (in which case it would have been "very good").

Room Tip: Avoid ground level because of parking lot noise.
