“Comfort and quality”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014

Stayed for the night. At the northern end of Riccarton Road and handy to cafes and restaurants. Very nice rooms and quality at a reasonable price. Courtyards are private and being north facing it gets the late sun. A great spot for pre-dinner drinks.

Room Tip: Away from the road is best and we had a downstairs room with a lovely courtyard out the back.

We booked this room as our first stop from the airport. We chose the location so we could walk into town but be near the major roads out of the city. The rooms were quiet, roomy and comfortable. The owners very helpful. We would stay here again.

This place was easy to feel at home. All the conveniences including kitchenette, laundry, living room area, comfy bed, big spacious bathroom and a gym across the street. Free wifi and parking. Also to add to the fun, Fifi the cat was always curious as to who was checking in and out of the motel. Hagley Park is only about 2 blocks away, and really beautiful with botanical garden and Canterbury Museum included. Easy to catch a cab around the area. The manager, staff and cleaner were always very attentive and accommodating. Our particular room lacked space in the bathroom for toiletries - they could put up additional shelves for this, and the room lacked drawers, but we made do with the large closet and used the luggage rack.

We stayed here this past week and were thrilled that first of all we got accomodation with such short notice. Roma was spotlessly clean and roomy with a single bed in the living room and a queen bed in the bedroom. The beds were very comfortable and the shower was great -- lots of good water pressure.I think the place is worth 5 stars but can only give it 4 because of a little breakdown in communication. I tried several times to contact the management to let them know I had not received a confirmation email for the night we needed to stay and I never did hear back however, they did honor our reservation. We also asked for a wake up call since we had an early morning flight and we never got it. Lucky for us we woke early enough ourselves.

Stayed here during the week for work, and the location is suburb for what I wanted. Loved the free gym across the road (open 24 hrs), plus being so close to Hagley park, so options for exercising are covered very nicely. Nice 15 minute walk down to the Riccarton mall, so again location good. Lots of bars and restaurants around the area. Rooms are comfortable, beds are a little hard for my liking, furnishings are pleasant, I had a ground floor spa unit, and the bathroom was an ok size, unit itself was a decent size, microwave was appreciated. Toiletries are lovely, nice smelling. Free internet was good. One little complaint was i stayed for 4 nights yet only received 1 small bottle of milk, another would have been appreciated. same with the biscuits, only on the 1st day. Unit was clean on arrival, and was kept clean during my stay.

Very nice room and spacious area. Ground floor room affected by waterfall water noise during toilet flush from upstairs room! Pillows were VERY flat. Good location with minimal other noise. Walk across the park into town, its beautiful!

We spent only one night here, but could easily have spent more.

Gary was incredibly accommodating, letting us check in early, as soon as our room had been cleaned, which was a huge help to us.

We'd selected the motel based upon reviews here on TA and it's proximity to Hagley Park, where we'd booked a Segway tour for the afternoon of our arrival.

Our unit was spacious (#6), clean and sufficiently quiet. It's located on a busy road and near the train tracks, but neither was a bother thanks to the soundproofing (and I'm sensitive to noise!).

Our unit also had a well equipped kitchenette, a private patio out the back, fast (free) internet and excellent water pressure.

All in all we had a lovely stay and would happily return to Roma on Riccarton.
