“You must stay here”
Reviewed November 10, 2012

My husband and I stayed here twice on our travels around the South Island. Of all the hotels / motels we stayed in, this was by far the best. It was excellent value for money. The room was spacious, clean, the bed was incredibly comfortable and the kitchenette equipped with everything we needed. Grant and Viv were so welcoming and could not do enough for us. They let us leave a case with them whilst we toured the South Island, suggested an itinery for us during our stay and sorted out a shuttle for us when we needed to get to the airport. The laundry facilities were brilliant - good size washing machine and plenty of washing line to hang it up on - I was even given new pegs !!
If we ever return to Christchurch, we would definately stay here again. I don;t normally both to write reviews, but this was so good, I thought I had to.

My sister and I stayed here for one night in September en route from Queenstown to Kaikoura. We had a warm welcome from Grant who was very helpful with directions and getting internet connections etc. Our ground floor 'unit' had a bedroom with one double one single bed, a separate lounge with dining area and kitchenette and a large bathroom with spa bath. Everything was very clean and quiet and we had all we needed. Could have stayed longer.
Christchurch itself is in the throes of rebuilding and it's still a bit of a challenge to get to some places, but try to visit Container Town where shops and restaurants have set themselves up in huge brightly painted cargo containers.

This unit was big and roomy. Having a separate lounge area was good for we were in a group and we could all fit for arvo drinks. Can walk into the city from here and although on a main road you cannot hear any of the traffic. Some good asian restaurants close by as there is nothing in close to the city. Good to visit and help to put some money into their economy.

Our downstairs spa 1/br unit was as you'd expect from a decent motel/motor lodge. Clean , comfortable , and the lodge manager was friendly.

There was a bit of noise from people walking around in the upstairs unit so sound proofing could be a little better. But , this didn't annoy us.

Great location and good value. Free internet was a bonus , and kitchenette was useful.

Thoroughly recommend staying here.

This was a great stay. The motel was within walking distance to the CBD. The room was clean and also had a kitchenette. The internet charge was also reasonable. The reception lady was very helpful with directions and also walked me up to the room to ensure I was happy with it.
One pleasant surprise was the fact this motel organises fixed fare taxis to the airport. My taxi came on time (very early in the morning) and the fixed fare was NZ$25. This was great because I didn't have to worry about traffic or anything and I knew exactly how much it was going to cost.

We (Malaysians) had booked double rooms instead of triple (by error) and surprised Grant when we checked in late evening. However, he was ever so obliging and did as much as he could to make sure we had a comfortable stay. Much appreciated, Grant! The lodge is pleasant with a good location, rooms were clean, beds had clean sheets and heated blankets, nice toiletries. Overall, it was a pleasant stay.
