Best option in Christchurch. Room has everything you need and is super clean. Val the owner is amazing. Kind and unbelievably accommodating. My mom and I were in Christchurch for almost three weeks since my dad was in the hospital in the area. Val did everything she could to help us when we needed it including rides to the hospital....

Would not stay here. If you park in the wrong parking spot, the manager will intentionally park you in despite an otherwise completely empty lot! Not a way to promote business. Have made it a point to tell others not to stay here based on such a poor experience here.

Located in Redwood just down from the Styx Bridge and off the main road leading into Christchurch. Simple motel units that are comfortable and clean/tidy with all the basic appointments. The rooms all face the street and windows appear to be double glazed. Once the windows and doors were closed the road noise dropped considerably. A large shower with average...

Thank you, Swinn, for taking the time to write such a positive review. Yes, all the windows facing the street are double glazed and once they are closed, it's amazing how quiet it is...minimal traffic noise. Our showers are a good size...we know what you mean by "contortionist behaviours" as we have stayed in motels with very small shower cabinets...

Needed somewhere to stay on this side of town. The gardens were impressive so took a look. I was my own and felt safe so that was important to me. Very nice people own the place. The kitchen is well equipped. I only used the kitchen for my evening drink and toast and cup of tea in the morning but...

David K, Owner at Avon City Motel, responded to this review

Thank you JKLM2 for taking the time to write a review on your stay at our motel. We have many guests who like to self-cater so they are impressed with the cooking facilities each unit offers. It can get quite expensive "eating out" especially if you are staying for a few nights. We are pleased that you felt safe here...

We stayed there last week for a night with our two boys. The rooms were immaculate and very clean. Nice owners who took time to answer our questions and were very helpful. The gardens were very beautiful.

Stayed here for 2 weeks while working in Christchurch area situated in Redwood so location was good for accessing main roads. Friendly proprietors, room was comfortable, clean & well serviced, the gardens were amazing. Friendly proprietors. Free wifi was limited per day of stay.
