“Good motel”
Reviewed February 4, 2013

We found the staff very helpful and welcoming. The apartment was clean and modern and met our needs. Well placed for local shops and restaurants. Easy walk through a beautiful park to the centre of Christchurch

Room Tip: If you want to avoid the sun ask for a ground floor apartment

Dont be fooled by the 'Quality Hotel' signage outside - this is a Motel and nothing more. There are no facilities on site and no option to order food etc. When we enquired about breakfast, we were told to go to the neighbouring hotel, which we should have then booked into! Its a long walk to any shops, though the park is opposite and this is a lovely place to visit.
The staff were thoroughly unhelpful and everything seemed to be too much trouble.
On the flipside, the rooms were a good size and there were some kitchen facilities. There was also limited free wi-fi available.

I stayed at this motel for 3 night on a business trip. Having arrived at the motel late in the evening, I was greeted by the friendly host and shown to my room in no time. The room was really spacious, clean, tidy and cosy, with all essential items available.

This motel is within walking distance to the a large shopping centre and there are many restaurants around the area. A short walk will take you to the park.

A small complaint would be the number of available TV channels. The choices are really limited and TV reception was really bad. However, the free WIFI with 500mb was really generous.

Will definitely come back again.

Those visiting Christchurch must understand that the downtown area was devastated in the February 2011 earthquake, so typical downtown hotel rooms are few and far between. We stayed at the Towers on the Park as an alternative. It is literally right across the street from the central park downtown. The rooms are spacious, clean and highly functional. We had a king bed room with a spa (you have to pay extra but it's worth it after driving all day on narrow winding roads!). There is no restaurant in the motel, nor a breakfast service. Because it IS right across from the park, one of the biggest roads in the down town area runs directly behind the motel, creating a far amount of road noise. However, the layout of the motel is such that you still have a sense of privacy.

Room Tip: The spa rooms have large jetted tubs easily big enough for two persons! Also, don't arrive in Ch...

There is plenty to do and see all within walking distance of this motel. Walk across Hagley park to Christchurch city centre or walk to Riccarton Rd where there is countless Pubs, restaurants, takeaways and a big Westfield shopping centre. Free wifi, large clean comfortable rooms make for an enjoyable stay. The only downside is that it is on a busy intersection and there was a bit of traffic noise but I didn't find it to bad.

I lived in the TotP for 5 months from July to November 2012 doing EQ service in Christchurch. Matt and his team are outstanding and are my first choice for any return trip.

Although a 'Motel', I have had better service there than in many Hotels

Great service and help, lovely clean and tidy rooms, no request too much trouble.

Needs Sky TV though!

Room Tip: Ask for a suite if you are staying any length of time
