“Obliging”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

We spent our last night in the South Island here.
Room was clean and comfortable,Very minor traffic noise and was warm

I had trouble connecting to WiFi but the manager was very helpful and got me connected using his access.(Partner had no trouble connecting)

Booked on line a couple of days prior where the room price was stated, however on printing out the booking we noticed that it had increased by $10. I mentioned this on checking in and the manager agreed to the lower price. Of some concern was that we were asked if we could pay cash rather than Eftpos. We paid by Eftpos.
The room had a large TV and also a stereo unit.

HI,

Thank you for your stay with us your review, regarding the following

however on printing out the booking we noticed that it had increased by $10.

this might have been caused by the fact that we do lots of discount throught out the year. When we are changing the price for disounts, sometimes we make a mistake and dicounted for wrong days or amount, I think when you made the booking we must be updateing our prices, but we will always honor our deals :)

Thanks

Fyffe Motor Lodge is a quiet, clean and simple place to stay. Everything works and is clean and tidy, with parking off the main road. Double glazing not only keeps heat in, but also road noise out. The staff are courteous and efficient.

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the back, away from the main road, if you are likely to be distrubed by traffice n...

Spent two nights here at the start of our trip to New Zealand. Had emailed the owner to ask if we could store our luggage there after long flights from the UK (we would be arriving before check in time). The owner had our room ready on our arrival, which was great after such a long journey. We had a ground floor room at the rear of the motel. Room was very quiet. Very clean with a comfy bed and a large bathroom. Toiletries, hairdryer and plenty of good quality towels provided. Kitchenette with cooking facilities, pots, pans etc, which we found very useful. The man on reception was lovely and very helpful. Really enjoyed our stay. Plenty of shops and places to eat on Riccarton Road.

Room Tip: We had a ground floor room at the back. I had emailed the owner to say we were light sleepers. Nev...

Absolutely loved this hotel! The studio room we had was very large and very clean! The managers were MORE then accommodating. I cannot say enough good things about them. They even went to the store and got my mom ice cubes for her drink! The room not only had TV and wifi but also had a nice music stereo. Another nice touch was the towel warmer in the bathroom. Highly recommend this place!

We have just completed our 3 week stay at Fyffe on Riccarton Motor Lodge as our home was undergoing Christchurch earthquake repairs. Short notice, lengthy, accommodation is difficult to find in Christchurch. George we can’t thank you enough for making it work for us. You went above and beyond our expectations.
Fyffe on Riccarton Motor Lodge is close to the Westfield Riccarton Mall and Bush Inn Centre either by car or on foot. Shopping, banks and numerous restaurants are readily accessible.
The units are very clean and well serviced on a daily basis by friendly, helpful staff. We experienced peaceful sleep - a quiet, well equipped sanctuary. There is plenty of onsite parking.
We highly recommend this accommodation. A big thank you George - please convey our thanks to your staff.

Room Tip: George has a list of restaurants and their menus that will deliver to your unit.

Happy with this accommodation as our first night in NZ. Our room on the second storey was very clean & there was a friendly man on reception. Close to restaurants & Westfield shops are walking distance. Would recommend this to couples spending about $150 AUS.

Stayed overnight in Feb prior to flight overseas...George was super with helping out with our requests as Christchurch is busy these days searching for reasonable accommodation.
Requested studio unit at rear to avoid traffic noise being on Riccarton Road, nice unit at the rear upstairs, spotlessly clean, modern and comfy bed - ideal.
Already re booked for another night with greeting visitor from Australia on the midnight flight, so staying again in May, George once again very helpful.

Room Tip: If you wish a more peaceful sleep especially at the weekends, request a back unit.
