“Great Location”
Reviewed March 30, 2013

Friendly, helpful & accommodating owner/staff. Location is on a main road & on bus route although we didn't get effected by the traffic noise. Restaurants, bottle store etc all within walking distance.Shopping mall within walking distance too. Very handy to Hagley Park. Rooms clean & tidy.

Very neat and tidy but as others have written we were in the two bed family apartment No. 1 from memory, it is closest to street and very noisy day and night. But a great spot handy to everything. Recommendations from staff for where to eat were spot on. They even rang and arranged bookings for us. Very helpful.

Warmly greeted by the managers. Good sized rooms. Bathroom and kitchenette were OK. Close enough to walk to town centre, and restaurants / cages in Merivale. We enjoyed our stay, the only draw back was we were at the front of the complex and the hum of traffic noise started early finishing late, so sleep broken if you are a light sleeper.

Had a four bed appartment (#2) next to the street. Nice location with friendly and helpful stuff which welcomes us to new zealand. The rooms were clean and spacious. The motel is near to the city that you can reach center or botanical garden by foot within 15-20 minutes.
Only 4 from 5 points cause of the thin windows and walls which could not block the traffic noises in the morning. Maybe an appartment more away from the street let you sleep longer. Also the big breakfast with 15,50 NZD per person was overpriced.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the street may be quieter.

good location, good reception and big enough for 4 people. We booked a two-bedroom apartment, the room upstairs has no door... And the apartment is just beside the busy road, noisy! No oven in the kitchen.

My husband, our four year old son and I stayed here for 18 days as part of the time our house was getting repaired from the Christchurch earthquakes. We stayed in a 2 bedroom downstairs unit at the back of the property close to the pool. The unit was well equiped with stove top, fridge, pots etc to be able to cook. Also has a microwave. Flat screen TV's with sky in lounge and both bedrooms. The beds were comfortable and we slept well as was nice and quiet. Our unit was always cleaned well. We used the pool several times, this was also kept clean and was great to cool down as a couple of the days were a hot 30.c and 31.c. We had a free newspaper delivered at our door Monday to Saturday. There are some places to eat within walking distance, and the city centre and botanic gardens are close to. There is off street parking also. Neal and Carol were great hosts, friendly and helpful. We would stay again, think it is good value and highly recommend to others.

Room Tip: Units at the rear are quiet.

Would highly recommend this property, it ticks all the boxes they were helpful, cheerful, tidy and very clean along with being very quiet, fantastic nights sleep. The cost was very reasonable for us. A property worth visiting.
