“Fantastic, quality motel with excellent service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 14, 2011

A reasonably new motel, what sets the Addington Stadium Motel apart is the great service provided. Nothing was too much trouble, - the Manager even brought in our washing when we were late returning one night! Spotless units, good quality linen, well equipped full kitchen. There is a small supermarket directly across the road, which greatly helps if you are self catering. We were delighted and would definitely stay here again.

We chose the Addington Stadium Motel because we were on our way to Akaroa and well situated for proximity to banks peninsula. We felt so welcome and our room was exceptionall y comfortable with no traffic noise whatsoever. A real find in Christchurch.

We had two nights at this motel, the owners were very friendly offering advice and generally sharing themselves around the guests.

The facilities excellent, would stay again in a flash, beautiful and clean.
Handy to where we needed to be, lovely bathroom and a good bed, which is essential.

Really ample parking space too.

We stayed here based on previous reviews and the need to get quickly to the Trans Alpine train in the morning before 8 am.

Despite being on the corner of a very busy road, we didn't hear any traffic noise from inside the motel room - windows were closed and it would probably have been a different story if they had been open).

Electric blankets on the bed and a wall heater, plus bath with jet bubbles made for a very cosy stay. The pillows and bed were very comfortable. Everything in the room was immaculately clean, and Bob and Ngarita were fabulous and friendly hosts.

We got a free ride to the station the next morning in very good time to catch the train.

For those wanting to use buses to get to and from the city, buses number 7 and 77 are the ones to take or else it is about a half-hour walk from the city centre. I managed to book this motel studio room for $5 less on wotif.com than any other booking website (including the motel's own website).

On a recent trip to Christchurch, we decided to stay at the Addington Stadium Motel due to its proximity to the things we planned to do while there. We were pleasantly surprised by the layout of the motel and the warm and friendly hospitality we experienced from Bob and Ngarita the owners. We loved our room (we recived a complimentary upgrade!) and while the motel is close to roads, we found the room to be quiet and relaxing. Additionally, it had everytthing we needed to self cater - the bed was very comfortable, the bathroom was exceptionally clean, everything was bright and shiny. It was truly a pleasure to come home to at night! Thanks Bob & Ngarita for your friendly, helpful advice and for taking the time to give us (walking) directions to Westpac Stadium.
We look forward to seeing you both on our next trip to Christchurch.

We stayed here for 1 night. We chose it because of its close proximity to the Tranz-Alpine train and they offer a complimentary drop off. We were not disappointed. It proved to be very comfortable, immaculately clean with hosts that were cheery and welcoming. Our room was on the ground floor at the front but we slept well and didn’t hear any traffic noise.

I stayed in the Addington Stadium Motel in Christchurch for three nights. After a phone call Bob (the owner) picked me up from the train station (and upon departure took me back again). The rooms are spacious, they have everything you need and are absolutely spotless! I was very impressed with the service I received throughout my stay. Owners Bob & Ngarita Stewart are the friendliest motel people I’ve come across so far. Helpful with anything you may come up with. I felt very well looked after. More like a member of the family than a guest. There is a supermarket just across the street. Bus stop to Christchurch is just down the road and the return bus stop is across the street. The bus takes you right into the city within ten minutes. The Addington Stadium Motel offers very good value for money. I strongly recommend this motel to everyone.
