On booking asked for a quiet room as the motel is on a very busy road. No problem. We were given a very spacious room at the back of the motel. The room had a large double bed as well as a single. The bathroom was walk in and roomy. The galley kitchen was very well equipped and

Thank you for feedback and for staying with us. We appreciate that there was a slight smell left from the previous guests. We do try to ensure all smells are gone before anyone checks in but what can happen during the busy season is that we have guests staying and leaving virtually every day and sometimes with this and the heat we cannot rid all the smells in this time frame. We were pleased to have you stay with us.. Kind regards, Roger & Shelley

We stayed here for two nights Dec 28/29 so right in the heart of the hot Canterbury summer and holiday madness, and it was just perfect! Close to everything, walking distance (3 mins by foot!) to the wonderful Dux Dine restaurant and possibly the best motel I've ever stayed in!

Comfortable and clean
is there a sauna
Hi Elise I didn't notice one, its a standard motel layout, but really nice and in a great position. My room just had a shower but a full kitchen. There is a communal laundry within the complex. The owners are really helpful.

How far is it to the airport, is there car parking? Or a shuttle bus to the airport? Thanks
It's about 20 minutes easy drive from the Airport and there is parking outside the units. I'm not sure about shuttle bus but there is a local bus you can take from the airport that stops only a couple of minutes walk from the motel. Check the local bus Company "Metro" for times and more info. (tried to add the link to their home page but could not do that) Hope you got some useful information from this.
