We stayed here for business and rugby. Really well kept, tidy, clean accommodation. Friendly and obliging staff. Road noise was not an issue, good water pressure, excellent location. Totally recommend and will definitely be back if needing accommodation in Chch again.

Arrived in Christchurch without booking ahead, and spent some time looking for suitable accommodation of the hills side of the city centre. Addington Court Motel stood out and is a fairly new and well run motel complex. Well appointed, clean and fairly well laid out, it fulfilled what we needed. It was handy to main roads and was relatively easy...

My partner, his father and sister booked at this motel, the new owner was most helpful and really put herself out to help. It was very much appreciated. Thank you. As accommodation providers ourselves it's nice to know other places we can recommend.

We were visiting Christchurch only briefly as an overnight stop between the Coastal Pacific Rail trip and the TranzAlpine trip. The Addington Court was perfect for this purpose. Our host picked us up from the rail station even though the train was an hour and a half late. At 6.30 the next morning he drove us back to the station...

Motel close to Christchurch Rail Station. Very obliging free transfer service to and from the Rail Station. Motel Room was immaculately clean. Short walk to local shops and restaurants. Free wifi appreciated.

We stayed one night here between train trips. The train to Christchurch was 3 hours late getting in, but there was someone there at the station to pick us up and to take us back to the station next morning. Very clean and comfortable with very good facilities. We were so late in arriving that we found something to eat...

We were very happy with our stay at the Addington Court Motel. The room was comfortable and had a small balcony; the manager was friendly and helpful; and it was conveniently located on a main thoroughfare.

The only " Con" - No NZ power plugs near the bed. Having said that, it was simply superb. Bed was nice and cosy, ample amount of toiletries, friendly staff, good sized & neat room and bathroom. Small garden just behind the room. something that stands out is the unlimited wireless. The speed was just WoooooW... and unlike other places...

We really enjoyed our stay and the owners made it fantastic, visiting with us, giving us tips for restaurants and places to visit, helping us get a cab to the airport, helping with bus schedules and giving us a nice history of the earthquake. They also have a super friendly cat who will visit! Give her a ear scratch, she's...
