Reviewed March 29, 2014

Enjoyed our stay here, freshly renovated room - very clean and comfortable and perfect location for city, park and the beautiful botanic gardens. Handy to very good restaurants. You will see us again next year. Thanks

Good points, So close to everything the location is fantastic.If you have children the swimming pool would be an asset,check in was also excellant room was ready on arrive we let them know we would be arriving before check in time.TV good choice of channels,Even though the motel is on a main road we did not hear any traffic noise and had quality sleep
Not so good points The room was very dated and could do with a decent spring clean and the wee outdoor private garden area could do with a bit of TLC but over all our experience at Southern comfort was pleasant

Very beautiful, huge rooms with everything. Beautiful balcony, nice service. Only 5 minutes walk via Victoria street to the centre. Through the earthquake , the centre is really dead. In such moments, you realize how from one minute to another life can change.

Our room was very tired, almost scruffy, nice man who appeare to run the place though.
Although the place appeared to have been redecorated since EQ, it was in need of an update. Its location is very good, we have stayed several times in the past but will probably bypass it in the future.

First time have ever stayed in a motel and had to ASK for enough plates, cutlery, and cups for the 4 people we had booked for. (The unit could sleep 5, what did they expect people to eat off/with?) Don't the cleaners CHECK these after each occupant?? Also toilet seat very wonky, shifted sideways as you sat...most disconcerting and uncomfortable. Guy in office very pleasant and friendly but obviously not too good at managing. Would try somewhere else next time..

Totally not what i was expecting..The Room was Un-aired, the Underlay was Filthy, the Carpet had other peoples Hair on it, and the Kitchen+Bathroom Floors were Very Dirty...I Did complain to the man in the office+he had no apology for me, he just said someone will do it..Well..No one vaccumed the carpet, nor did they wash the floors..The under lay was replaced + i got clean towels..There was No Follow up on my Complaint...Totally not good enough for $150 per night!!! I would not reccomend, nor will i ever go back again to this establishment...

Room Tip: Ask for a quite room, as it is on a main street.

This motel is in a good location with easy walking to bars and eateries and what was the CBD. The guy on the front desk was very friendly and helpful. Admittedly our motel room was a bit outdated and in need of a refresh, but as far as value for money and location, this motel is fine for a couple of nights.
