This the 3rd time we have stayed here - and we will definitely be back. We have stayed in both the 2 bedroom apartments and 1 bedroom apartments which have all been spotlessly clean and very comfortable. Carol and Roy are very friendly and helpful - you can't ask for better hosts. Great location, easy walk to central city and...

It was great to find accommodation so close to the city centre which also had adequate free parking. Having arrived after a long days drive from Queenstown we were quickly checked in and pointed in the direction of local eateries. We had a ground floor two bedroom unit which was spotlessly clean and the heating had thoughtfully been put on...

This was a superb choice for my two days in Christchurch. The rooms were spotlessly clean and comfortable and equipped with everything I needed. The hosts were very kind and welcoming and the location was easy to get to and very convenient and within walking distance for everything in central Christchurch. I would certainly choose to stay at Focus Motel...

As other reviewers have noted, the warm welcome of the hosts here really sets the stage for the well-kept, clean, modern yet cozy and comfortable rooms. Location is walking distance to restaurants, Re:START container mall, and lovely botanical gardens. Great base to see Christchurch rebuild. Laundry facility was much appreciated!

Hi, I fly in to work in Christchurch every week and have been staying at the Focus Motel for nearly three years so I guess I know the motel well. First things first, I find a great place to stay depends a lot on the hosts and the hosts at the Focus are diamonds. I have found Roy and Carol...

Superb facility. The location is prime and safe, close to eateries and the city, and convenient. The room I stayed in was very comfortable and impeccably maintained at all times. The owners are lovely, and I found them to be polite and helpful whenever I needed to speak to them. I wouldn't go anywhere else if I was staying in...

Spent two nights at Focus a week apart and had a very warm welcome both times from Roy, Carol and their staff. The rooms were clean, very comfortable and the motel is very well placed for the centre of Christchurch, with some wonderful restaurants and bars all within a 10 minute walk. There is no restaurant and a tray breakfast...

When we arrived at the motel on our first day in New Zealand, we were greeted by a warm friendly welcome. The staff on reception (owner of the place?) was so enthusiastic and helpful. He knew who we were before I told him, he told us all the good places to go to in detail and led us to our...
