Easy walking distance to Victoria Street for a night out or ,if visiting Christchurch a great central location . We wouldn't hesitate to stay again ☺

I stayed for a night on a recent work trip. The studio apartment is bigger than some of the average Christchurch hotel rooms. Being relatively new, it is very clean and well maintained. The motel is an easy walk to many of the great restaurants on Victoria Street, the casino and city centre. It was also very quiet ensuring a...

Apart from the great location everything about the property was ideal. We had a one bedroom apartment style room with a small kitchenette, which was a perfect base for our fist night in NZ. We would have stayed at the end of our stay but the property was full. The owners were very friendly and welcoming throughout our stay.

We've stayed here twice and it has to be my top pick in Christchurch. This time we were in a two-bedroom suite and it was very well equipped and furnished, with modern bathrooms (including a bath), large TV and stereo. The location was quiet and the staff were accommodating and friendly. Free wi-fi was great. We'll be back!

I come to Chch often, and Focus is my favourite place to stay there. Each room is perfect, spacious and most have a balcony. It is safe and secure and walking distance to cool cafes and restaurants. Carol is an incredible host. She took the time to show us where to go eat, sites to see and made sure everything...

We had a lovely room which was spotlessly clean and well appointed. We were upgraded to a One Bedroom with a balcony which was much appreciated. I work in the industry so very fussy when it comes to the standard of accommodation and I couldn't fault both the friendliness and customer service as well as the cleanliness and room presentation.

Lovely place to stay. Really tidy and immaculately clean with friendly staff. Exciting to see Chch on the mend and they have some great pop up cafes and re:start container mall a short walk from FOCUS. Also close by is the Museum, botanical gardens, Ballantynes and lots more. Would definitely stay again!!
