Is an excellent place to stay, is really clean with all mod cons - cooking facilities and in room washing machine and dryer. Fabulous bed and close to shops. Owners are friendly and room is serviced daily, no need to use air conditioning as room is very cosy, highly recommended

The Papanui road location is handy to the city, and the in-room facilities are good for business travellers - work desks, good wifi, plenty of power points, washer/dryer, ironing etc. Comfortable, quiet, and clean. Suggest phoning to make bookings, particularly if you need flexibility on number of nights, or trying to book far in advance, as the on-line AA booking...

I rung to make an inquiry and all I asked was if there was availability on a certain date. I got a "no i don't" reply and that was that!! I've never come across someone so rude on the phone and the worst thing is, when you go and book online it says the date I was looking at is...

We spent two nights at the Randolph and enjoyed our stay. Our studio unit was tidy and well presented. Peter at the desk was most helpful providing us instructions on getting around the city dodging street closures. Their location is excellent situated on Papanui Road close to the city centre Just 200 meters up the road is a nice cafe...

Checkin very prompt & efficient. However, room full of daddy long legs and hair in the bath. Different guy moved me to another room which was much better (though he couldn't understand what was wrong with other room)! ran the spa bath & black bits came out of the jets. Not the best. Handy location, but there are plenty others...

We booked this motel on-line the night before our arrival in Christchurch, after trying some other higher rated options (many were sold out). Randolph's turned out to be perfectly comfortable, clean, and the service was professional and prompt. Perfect with our car as we were easily mobile to drive around town and needed parking. We had a one-bedroom suite with...

I stayed at the Randolph Motel on business in March 2013. My room was more like an apartment. It was a 1 bedroom apartment with a Kitchen (Stove, Oven, Full Refrigerator and Microwave). Comfortable leather couch and chair in the living room with smallish flat screen TV and SKY TV channels. The bedroom was a king size bed very spacious....

I had book into this motel and received a message saying booking had been cancelled. This was two days after I had booked. Rang the owner who was a rude arrogant man. We stay in Chch several times a year but would not use this place.

The day before I was scheduled to arrive I received a message saying that my booking had been cancelled - the owners had accepted another later booking. Nice facility but not suitable if you are relying in the booking.

We were earthquake refugees and very glad we found ourselves at the Randolph. The room finishing was modern cosy and comfortable with everything we could want. Friendly owners looked after us very well and were happy to accommodate our special requests and arrangements. We have stayed at five other places so far and will reccomend
