4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2008

Nice clean room with a comfortable bed and spa bath. Friendly owners who gave us a room away from the main drag so the sleeping was uniterrupted.

We decided to stay in Geraldine on our way from Aoraki/Mt Cook to Christchurch and just stopped at the first place we saw. Actually, the internet broadband sign called to my husband and son. We had a 2-bedroom unit that was comfortable, spacious and clean. And yes, there was good internet access. It was a short walk to town and the owner was very helpful with dinner recommendations. Wish we had more time to explore the surroundings.

  • Liked — Comfort and proximity to town center

We stayed at the Scenic Route after the hotel we'd booked was all locked up by the time we arrived late (at 11:30pm - small town equivalent of 3am). We were booked in quickly and efficiently - fortunate as we felt half dead by that stage.

The Scenic Route looks like your traditional NZ motel but inside it is new and fresh. A lot of effort seems to have been made in the small details - even down to having little tables outside the room entrances so the smokers can get some relief (we're not but it was a nice touch - complete with ash trays). The bathroom was great (shower only - no bath if I remember correctly) and the bed was the best I slept on in our holiday.

It's on the approach to Geraldine from Christchurch and Geraldine itself is a pleasant small town on the way to the more notable NZ tourist attractions. It does have a nice supply of cafes and stores for supplies though.

Found simply as a convenient place to stay en route, this recently opened motel had everything you could need (obviously all new), and only cost $162 for a 2 bedroom unit. I don't remember if it was rated
but should be 4+star.
