When you are travelling one of the main things is a good night's sleep and this is what we had at the Earnslaw Motel. It was clean, comfortable, quiet, adequate facilities and the price was reasonable. We were warmly welcomed and our check in dealt with efficiently. Although the decor is a little dated this was not of a concern...

We had to check out early, had booked 3 nights, could only stay one, the boss assured me if they could sell the room he would refund the $115/night, I thought that was fair. I phoned on both nights to get a late booking, no there were no rooms available, therefore our room had been sold, we got no refund,...

It has a good structure, clean and the kitchen is well furnished. The bathroom also I'd clean although the water pressure isn't impressive. Downside, is too close to a main road, therefore it'll be difficult to sleep in certain hours. The WiFi signal is poor and doesn't reach all cabins, and if it does, is very slow, almost unusable. They...

I stayed at the Earnslaw Motel with my grandson in early January. We found the Motel very clean and comfortable. The little extras were very welcomed eg. the cookies my grandson enjoyed and I enjoyed being able to make real coffee in the coffee plunger. The staff were very accommodating, friendly and helpful. The only downside was that for us...

Flying business trip so them room was booked for me. First visit and hosts were welcoming and polite. Room is very spacious having been built 70s/80s but has newer bathroom. Full sized kitchen and bathroom which were both spotless. Everything you need with nothing you don't all in a handy location to airport and town. Would book again anytime.

We picked this motel for our mini break in Christchurch. The staff were friendly and helpful and nothing was a problem. It was also reasonably priced being well within our budget. Our room was comfortable with a comfortable queen bed in the main room and two singles in the second room. The bathroom was roomy and the shower was wonderful....

We stayed three nights from a Thursday night to Saturday night, and were pleased to find that the motel was comfortable, clean, well presented and spacious. We booked a family unit, with a double bed in the main room and two singles in the separate bedroom. The kitchen facilities were good. The host was really friendly and helpful, and made...

We live in Greymouth and find this motel in a good location as we come occasionally for shopping expeditions to ChCh.

The host is friendly and welcoming. The motel is pretty central. Just across the road from the Warehouse. Since it is a main road, we could hear the traffic from early morning = no sleeping in. The rooms are pretty spacious and well furnished. The bathroom needs upgrading. Warning - the hot water is seriously hot and since there is...
