We stayed for the night in a family of 7. We were given two rooms which were on the ground floor. While the property looks rather old, worn out and rather depressing - the kitchen and rooms were clean and comfortable if you are just stopping over in Christchurch for a short stay or layover. The surroundings looked pretty eerie. A dilapidated house which looks like it is about to collapse stood next door and pavement outside the motel had cracks all over. Perhaps due to the previous earthquake (prior to December 2011) of aftershocks. Funnily enough, we left the next morning for Sydney, 48 hours before the 23 December 2011 earthquake hit Christchurch.....
