Reviewed April 10, 2013

Stayed 2 nights in Christchurch in December 2012. We were a group of 7 people and everyone seemed very satisfied with the hotel. It is nice and clean, staff is helpful and friendly and there is a restaurant, pub, supermarket and fast food within walking distance. A walk down to the city center is 20 min away.
No wifi, but the hotel have an ethernet cable in the room. Room was spotless with comfy beds. No complaints what so ever.

As all the previous reviews say Clean and neat Motel with everything you would need.

Free internet - good speed internet, nice host. good clean beds, massive flat screen TV, Laundry in room(which was a great help for us as it was v much needed ), clean shower and kitchenett :-) , Safe neighborhood, We are Indians and it worked best for us a very good Indian restaurant (coriander )one block away literally 1 min walk.

Overall Bang for the buck and more.

Its in a drivable distance from christchurch city center.

we had a good stay and would recommend it

The guy at the desk was helpful and gave a generous amount of allocation for wifi. the room itself even has a plug in for your laptop! Washer and dryer as well. clean reasonably priced as well.Good place to rest before departing. There is no sitting area but there's a dining table for meals.

Areas for improvement:
The shower screen had a gap where water leaked out.

We spent three nights at this hotel and we were thrilled with it. The staff is very helpful and polite, but the best part is the rooms. The rooms are apartment style with a mini fridge, stove top, sink, great bathroom w/ shower and a washer and dryer. The location is pretty nice - there's a bus stop right in front of the hotel and it was only a ten minute bus ride to the city center. Highly recommend staying here!

Room Tip: Our room was on the main level and faced the parking lot, so we always had our curtains drawn. I wou...

Booked in here for 1 overnight stay before flying home. Lovely large appartment style room, very well equipped with own washing machine & dryer & good cooking facilities. Quiet location. Only minor downside was their were no net curtains & we were looking onto the car park so wasn't private unless the curtains were pulled.

Nice place, clean, good space, decent price. The internet service was a bit bad but may be because my computer was from the Americas, not sure if it had anything to do with my connection problems.
The hotel looks new and is well located if you are travelling on a budget, you can take a bus right outside and the bus can connect you to the interchange station so you can go anywhere. There's a very good Thai restaurant across the street

Room Tip: Rooms on the back are quiter and roomier

I stayed with more 2 friends, we all liked it. The only inconvinience is that they don´t have 24h reception, so make sure the reception will be opened when you arrive. This is a brand new apartment, big, washer/drier available, parking space, free internet (not wi fi), grocery store very close as well as restaurants and bar.

Room Tip: they all look the same...
