I wish I could give a better rating this motel, as location is absolutely perfect (it is right by the park, very close to downtown), the property is nicely kept, large rooms, passable WiFi, clean, altogether fine But, it is all ruined by the really, really, really uncomfortable beds. They are so soft, that they are almost waterbeds, making good...

A short business trip to Christchurch made all the more enjoyable thanks to the location and service of the Aalton Motel. It's only a short walk across the park to the city centre and located on main routes to the airport. the Motel is clean and quiet and close by to numerous good restaurants and bars and has near by...

great place on Riccarton, one of Christchurch's busiest streets. Interior was clean and the kitchen was well equipped, even with an oven which we appreciated. The sofa bed was a bit creaky and stained though. The other beds were nice and comfortable and heating was good. 15 mins walk to Pak n Save supermarket, but lots of other food and...

We had a two bedroom unit and it was spacious and clean. The free internet worked really well. Every morning we got the morning paper wich was really nice. It was...

We booked a two-bedroom and a studio for five people. The rooms were spotless. This is a 1960s or 1970s motel, showing its age in some ways - fewer power points for the tech items we use nowadays, for example. But it made up for it in others, like the helpfulness and friendliness of the hosts, the spaciousness of the...

Stayed overnight in this motel and quite honestly found the staff to be more than helpful, the rooms impeccably clean and tidy and the location excellent. We would not hesitate to recommend this establishment to everyone.

The motel is very clean and tidy. Kitchen is complete with oven, microwave, stove and fridge. Pots, pans and cutleries are all neatly kept in cabinets and all looks clean and tidy.
