This motel was a lovely surprise: the photos do not do it justice! It feels brand-new, although it is more than 5 years' old. It has classy silk curtains, and is well appointed. Great, spacious comfortable bed. The staff is very friendly, efficient and helpful. (Came running when I set off the smoke alarm, burning the toast!). I could live there, it is that comfortable. The only harsh reality is the empty space every room looks at: the house next door is no longer there, due to the earthquakes. However, accepting that as a fact of life in Christchurch, our stay was very good. The motel is in a very handy location, close to a supermarket and also the CBD. We had free WiFi for our iPad. Only thing: it needs serving and wooden spoons and a (small) frypan. And why is it that no accommodation in New Zealand has flyscreens on windows or doors?it even has very efficient washing machine and dryers in every room! For the first time in our lives we took clean washing home from holidays, as it was so easy to do the washing. Brilliant in every aspect.
