Spent two nights here in a two br apartment on arrival in Christchurch. Beds were comfortable, unit was clean and quiet and had a convenient little kitchenette with everything we needed. Close to Riccarton Mall shopping where you can pick up a SIM card for travellers at the Spark shop and groceries from the supermarket. Bus into town from the...

We stayed here for 2 nights in Christchurch. It was great for the price. The room was spacious, and the shower was amazing. There are 2 malls within walking distance. The only complaint is that it was a little far from downtown, but there was a bus stop right outside. Would recommend.

This motel is exactly what you might expect for the location and price. It looks relatively new, is well-equipped and very clean. There is air-conditioning. The location is good for both the centre of Christchurch and airport, which is why we chose it. The UK equivalent (roughly) would be a Premier Inn. For us, this has been ideal for a...

Reception staff were super friendly and helpful when I checked in. I was even able to check in a little early. A lovely clean room greeted me, with a separate bathroom including a spa bath. The room was warm and despite being on a main road it was quiet. The spa bath was a lovely treat with a long haul...

The experience at my recent business trip to Christchurch was successful and I like to attribute partial credit to Fyffe on Riccarton Motor lodge.

My husband and I stayed for one night before our flight out of Christchurch. The room was great, very clean, modern and well equipped with cooking facilities. The hotel was located in good distance to the Westfield shopping center. We would certainly return.

I stayed at the motel when in Christchurch for a conference. The room was perfect -- a one bedroom unit with a kitchenette. It met my needs. However there were several unexpected wrinkles. First, the motel's information book offers a daily newspaper on request, which I did. I received a newspaper my first morning, but none the next four mornings...

My wife and I stayed here at the beginning of February. It was clean, convenient for our needs and the staff were welcoming. The room had everything we needed, with a well appointed kitchen. It wasn't stylish but it was functional. There was also free wi-fi with a good signal.
