We arrived in Akaroa without a reservation had a wander around town and checked out a couple of accommodation options. Then I looked at Trip Advisor and noted a very positive recommendation for the Criterion Motel so we ventured out to find it and I am so pleased we did.
We were given a lovely corner room on the ground floor with awesome views of the harbour, very spacious with king bed, sofa lounge, table and chairs, kitchenette, very roomy bathroom and doors opening to an outside gated patio complete with director's chairs for outdoor use, it was a very comfortable room.
The location was right across the road from the harbour and restaurants and the supermarket and other shops were in the street behind. We ate at Ma Maison right across the road from the motel and I highly recommend it, food and service was excellent. So if you are going to Akaroa you can't go wrong with staying at Criterion Motel and eating at Ma Maison!
