Annabelle Court Motel
Ranked #84 of 146 Hotels in Christchurch
Reviewed January 28, 2013

Was well located to bus stop and Riccarton Mall with the Internet cafe just 1 block away. Could'nt believe they do not give milk after the first day (should have read Sally Faulkner's review first!) The room was really basic but generally clean except for a lolly wrapper on the floor, however, when I went to use the phone there were several strands of long black hair entangled in the cord which put me right off! The bed was hard and lumpy and it was two beds pushed together but I had to keep pushing them back together as they slid apart all the time. Stayed 3 nights and unlike Sandra N I did not get a change of linen even with the extremely hot weather and no air conditioning in the rooom . At $145 a night I felt a bit ripped off. The nicest part was the bubbly lady on the front desk :)

Nice and clean motel and within walking distance to the Riccarton Westfield shopping centre. A really nice cafe across the road which has good food and serves a very good breakfast. Returned to our room on the second evening to find it all nicely cleaned with fresh linen and chocolates left on the table :) a nice touch! The lady at the front counter was very helpful ordering us a taxi for our early morning departure and telling us what to expect to pay. Overall a nice place to stay and would stay there again.

great location they need to fill the drive onto the road huge dip nearly took the front of the car off, caution, take it side on, dont ask for milk on the 2nd day, only wanted enough for 2 coffees was told they dont supply it and to go and buy it...... (customer service a half cup milk wouldnt have broken them) as motels go, ok,good bars and cafes close by.

Room Tip: i always would rather get the ground floor as there is no lift and to drag bags upstairs is a pain

We stayed in a studio unit for one night we had booked on the road because there was little accomadtion in CHCH at the time of our stay, as i checked in the man behind the front desk was not helpful just gave me the key and pointed to the room the Lady who checked us out in the morning was lovely and bright and asked if we needed any help with further travel top marks for her :), we got to the room to find it was not clean and had finger/hand marks all over the wall and hair in the bathroom (not from us) did feel it was not clean enough to cook in. After staying in 5* motel the night before for $130 then arriving to this at $145 i was very disapointed, My suggestion is to go and check out the motel before you book :)

We stayed for a week in a comfortable 1 bedroom apartment - with the very sensible arrangement of the two single beds in the bedroom, so that the grown-ups get the kitchen/lounge/TV space after the kids are in bed. The room itself was fine, but a little tired and worn - some peeling laminate, broken shelf in the fridge. Comfortable beds though, and just enough room for two adults and two kids. The location is great - in post-earthquake Chch, Riccarton Road is one of the main busy shop/restaurant areas, and this motel is very close to a number of good restaurants, interesting shops, and the big Westfield Riccarton mall.

One of the nicest motels we stayed in NZ. Its in the busy area of Riccarton which is great as you can't access the city itself due to the quake. We had a ground floor unit with 2 bedrooms, one double and 2 single beds. the main room itself was very spacious with a comfy couch and big tv. The bedrooms were smallish but perfectly adequate and good storage space. Bed clothes were fresh to hotel standard in my opinion. The bathroom was fine, we had no widow but that must depend which unit you have. We only stayed here one night so didn't make use of the kitchenette but it was spotlessly clean. there was a surcharge for wifi but only a few dollars and to be honest you'll find that in most places they charge.
Overall, really nice motel and would have no problem staying there again

We stayed here on the recommendation of a friend because it was close to the train station where we were catching the Tranzalpine the next day and they could organise a free shuttle for us. We arrived quite late in the day but checkin was smooth and trouble-free. I had booked on the internet and it was all good.
We were able to walk down the road to a pub where we had dinner then back for a comfortable night's sleep. Our shuttle arrived pre-dawn (because of daylight saving) and on schedule and we made it to the train station in plenty of time.
I'd recommend this motel even if only for an overnight stay, especially if catching an early train.
