Great location, clean room, comfortable bed. Everything you need is there. Close to the shopping center, food store and only few minutes drive from central. Hosts are friendly, helpful and lovely. With heaters in rooms too to keep you warm in winter

It was a very cold weekend in Christchurch. The Manager contacted me to find out when we were arriving so that he could turn on the heaters well in advance. We had the two bedroom units out the back which were quiet and spacious for our flexible family group.

Very convenient location. And the room is new and tidy! Will come back again. The motel owner is very helpful, when I asked him if I can check out at 11am. The room I was staying even has a spa pool inside!

Husband and I had a one night stopover in Christchurch and we were glad we chose this motel out of its many competitors. Our host, Marco, was extremely welcoming and shared tips on food options and on where to stop for sightseeing on our way to Arthur's Pass. Room was spacious for 2, clean, with modern decor. Superb location right...

With a location close to Riccarton Mall, PaknSave and several good standard food and drinks choices, we found this Motel to offer an excellent overnight experience. The owner works very hard to provide an outstanding stay, and his attention to detail with room cleanliness and responses to any requests was impressive. WIFI service was reliable and responsive.

Hi Peter Thanks for taking the time to post a review. We have upgraded our WIFI from 1G per night to 2G per night. Telecom is laying fibre optic cable along Riccarton Road at the moment and we will make sure our WIFI is as good as it gets. Cheers Marco

We stayed on a quick overnight trip to Christchurch. The room was excellent, very clean and fresh, beautiful comfortable bed, blackout drapes, extremely quiet back unit. The shower was great. All the things you want to be good were superb. The lovely owner stayed up late to ensure we knew where to park after our function. Great service thank you.

4 of us stayed for 2 nights at the start of our trip to NZ. We arrived very late and Marco was there to greet us, the following day he gave us great Christchurch tourists tips and even lent us his pre-programmed sat nav! Hotel was well located, and the rooms were spacious, clean and very comfortable. Would definitely recommend.

10/10 for this Motel and Host Marco. I have managed and stayed in lots of motels and and this one tops my list. Marco was such an obliging host and nothing was too much trouble. Cleanliness, decor, situation (close to Riccarton Mall and PakNSave), privacy, bbq, child friendly - all 10/10.
