“Never Want to Leave”
Reviewed March 4, 2012

I always wish I had more time to stay at the Salerno with Pauline and Brendan. I hate saying goodbye every time, as I'm either on my way to work in Antarctica or on my way home from there. I feel it's worth every penny to stay at the Salerno and they've never turned me away or skimped on customer service. Christchurch is a second home to me and I'm heartbroken over the earthquakes, but people like Pauline and Brendan are the epitome of Kiwi resilience. They could just completely shut down and run off crying, but they have stayed and kept going instead. There are always going to be non-perfect days, although few and far between, but I would hope that people will give them those days and not judge harshly. In my opinion, you can't go wrong staying at the Salerno.

Room Tip: Room 1 is a nice large studio and has a combo washer/dryer. The suites are nice with the separate b...

This motel is well located close to the sadly devastated city centre.
Our room was very comfortable and attractively decorated.
happily recommend to anyone.
Saddest is the city which has far from recovered from the earthquake, so if you have limited time to explore South Island i would sadly recommend you give Christchurch a miss.

This said the Botanical Gardens are definitely worth visiting if you do stay.

We arrived late afternoon after checking into our pre booked accommadion that was not up to standard so stopped at the first avaliable Vacancy sign.
Friendly greeting for two weary ladies that had been shopping since arriving from Blenheim that morning.
Unit was certainly double what we wanted to pay but was well worth every cent.
The two bedroom unit was absolute luxury from the beds to the linen to the kitchen and the carpet.
Only sorry we did'nt stay longer. Proprietor walked out in the morning after checking out and opened the car door wishing us safe travels. It doesnt take much but it makes a huge difference.

We stayed at the Salerno Motel for 4 days in mid October 2011. Great location close to the city center. The room was clean and had everything you needed including a microwave and cookware. The price was within our budget and the staff were very helpful and accomodating. They even helped us booking "The Lord of the Rings Tour"...which was fabuous.

Room Tip: A second floor room is preferable because of downstairs parking and people traffic
