We booked a double room motel unit. The rooms were basic but clean and have everything you need, bonus of double glazing on the windows so even though we were in the unit closest to the road, the traffic noise didn't disturb us. Our kids loved the little playground - older kids might find it too junior but there is a great park just across the road. The owners were lovely and friendly, we'd brought our own cereal for breakfast and when asked, even gave us an extra bottle of milk for free so we didn't have to find a store.

Room Tip: If travelling with kids, get the family motel unit - great value for money and parents can sit up an...

219 On Johns was booked based on proximity to airport. We arrived from Melbourne at 12:00am and easily found the hotel after collecting our rental car (turn left at the airport roundabout and keep following the road and it is on your right hand side past the golf resort).

We booked a basic motel, it was basic but the bed was comfortable, the room has really cheap wifi, good TV reception and a nice shower.

Given our late check in, hotel management had arranged for easy collection of our keys, turned the heater on and left the light on.

As we had a 6:00am flight we returned to Christchurch and checked in here the night before. Our family motel unit was one of the best we stayed in while in New Zealand, really surprised us….

We would definitely stay hear again, Belfast has some great food outlets near by, petrol stations and is only five minutes from the airport.

Thank you for providing a great start and great finish to our holiday!

Room Tip: Go the family motel units, even if you are only a couple. More room and modern facilities

We found 219 on Johns just in the knick of time. We were running out of gas and daylight with
no place to stay. It was only a few days after the earthquake in February 11' We needed a decent motel room where we could unload the camper van and start to organize our things for our flight out of Christchurch the next morning. It was cozy and had a kitchen so we were able to stay in and eat. The shower was good and they accomodated me with a hairdryer and tea. Very helpful staff. It's a great deal for 67 bucks!

obviously I should have got a motel unit, instead we booked a cabin because of the children, and it was at best average , but it was clean and warm and all we wanted was a night before an early depature from Christchurch. The beds were double beds with an overhead single bunk and were quite flexible and the bathroom was "compact". The staff were friendly though and it is just a couple of minutes from the Airport, and with a check in time of 5am every minute asleep is great..

Room Tip: the motel units at the front are obviously the better ones

It was clean and tidy, everything we expected, just straight forward overnight accommodation. Great if you've got an early flight the next morning. Not so great if you want to go out for dinner and don't have a car.

There's a secret about this place though. If you survive the trip across the main road out the front during peak hour and make it to the park across the road, venture in a little deeper and you'll find the most picturesque parks with little lakes all over the place. If you make it in time for sunset you'll feel like you're in an oil painting. There were a lot of ducks there which we assume you can feed if you happen to have some bread or something with you. Enjoy.

I loved the place, clean, comfortable and the owners were so great. They helped us to buy the groceries as we checked-in late on that day.
