This accommodation was great for what we were looking for. But without a doubt it's most outstanding feature was the hosts Bruce and Maggie. Bruce very kindly meet us at the train station from the Tranz Coastal scenic trip which was an hour and a half late ( I did ring Maggie and let her know this as soon as I knew). Nothing seemed too much trouble. They had arranged courtesy transport to the train station the next morning for the Tranz Alpine too which was great, considering how late we had arrived.
The unit was lovely, although if staying for longer I would have found the kitchen and bathroom a little small and pokey, but for the 3 nights we stayed it was fine. Comfy couch and beds and plenty of supplies ( sugar, tea etc) The spa was great after long days and it is was situated near some great restaurants and across the road from Hagley Park. Having said this it is still near the city centre, but not so near that it is walking distance really, so with that comes some degree of noise, especially as we were in the first unit, close to the road.
Overall though a great place to stay if you don't mind traffic noise etc. If we didn't need to be so close to the train station, we would have stayed further from the city, which if we ever visited again we would do, but this motel is great at a good price with the best hosts I have ever come across.
