“Very friendly family accommodation”
Reviewed June 19, 2014 via mobile

Very nice facility, run by a very friendly family, and located very close to a great variety of food and beverage outlets. We would have loved to stay longer. A nice simple journey to the airport and reasonably close to the stadium.

Stayed June 2014, traveled with friends

My wife and I stayed a total of 5 nights on two separate visits over two weeks.The unit was close to the city and on a main road but still very quiet. We found the unit a little small for our extended stays and the heating struggled to keep up when the temperatures dropped below 0 during our second visit. However, this was more than compensated for by it's location and our hosts who couldn't have been more helpful. During our first stay we commented on the lack of toaster and microwave ( a must for hot chocolates!) and on our return visit found they had installed both a toaster and microwave. They actually listened to feedback and acted upon it. Highly recommended for shorter stays.

This is a handy place for traveling to/from the train station and a taxi ride can be included in your room fee. We had a 2 bedroom with kitchen and large bathroom. Even though it is on a major street, our suite, the first behind the managers, was very quite. Beds were firm and we had a great night's rest. also wi-fi!

We stayed here for 2 nights during February when travelling on Kiwi Scenic Rail and really appreciated the free pickup by Andy from Christchurch Station (even although the train was very late both times) on 2 separate occasions and the free shuttle to the station in the morning. The owners couldn't have been more helpful and pleasant and made our stay. The motel is close to the station, extremely comfortable, quiet, spotless and very well equipped - home away from home! On the first night we had one of the original rooms with separate bedroom which was furnished traditionally and although perhaps slightly dated was warm, clean and comfortable and everything worked as we expected. On another night, because of limited availability, we were given a studio which was a recent addition to the motel and was modern, clean, well thought out and again very comfortable. Would definitely stay here again. Thanks Andy!!

This motel was not your standard modern motel with square rooms and modern furniture. This was a motel with character and slightly older, but very clean and comfortable. We had great fun pulling out different shelves in the kitchen to find a fold away ironing board, or a chopping board. The kitchen was large and fully equipped; separate toilet and shower; and lovely comfortable bed. The motel is amidst lovely gardens and the owners really had gone out of their way with Christmas decs. Toiletries were supplied. Excellent location by the arena and shops.

Room Tip: A Studio room was large and kitchen was separate

Had a great 2 night stay here. The room was large enough for 4 adults to occupy quite comfortably. It was well equipped with all the facilities you could possibly need. The kitchen was of a decent size and had an additional larger basin which is ideal for doing some washing if so desired.
The beds were comfortable and plenty of heaters meant we could stay nice and warm during our winter stay!
Lovely owner who was very friendly and helpful. We would stay here again.
