I would highly recommend this motel and will definitely stay there again. The location is perfect being directly opposite the Westfield shopping mall. It is locally owned so you get that extra personal touch...we were given Xmas mince pies and allowed to check in earlier as the room was ready. Lovely clean, modern rooms and they have the best shower!

A great location across from the Riccarton mall, right on public transport routes with bus stops outside the door, only minutes from the CBD. Owners were lovely and offer a pick up from the airport which was handy. Room was very tidy and tidy but a little small, the king size bed overwhelmed the room a bit, however it was...

We stayed a night at the Kauri Motel as we were attending a family wedding in the area. Fantastic communication around booking was followed by a warm welcome on arrival. The room (well unit actually as it had a small kitchenette) was spotlessly clean and well appointed - we wanted for nothing! I have a bad back and can often...

The motel has everything you need in a room - kitchenette and from air conditioning to heater and not forgetting heated towel racks! A lovely place to stay with a big mall next to it and a short walk to Christchurch Farmers Market (on every Saturday) !!

As always, (my husband and I have stayed here previously) we enjoyed yet another stay. Lovely décor, quiet and the shower is great. Love the cuddly rug on the bed, fantastic to snuggle under. The owners Helen & Denis always make you feel very welcome. With Westfield Mall directly opposite, it's extremely close to shops, restaurants and cafes. Although the...

We had stayed at Kauri Motel several times pre earthquakes and arrived without making a booking. There were different operators and I was surprised that my name was still in the system. We had a funeral to go to the following day, which started off lovely and sunny, but as the day went on the weather turned very wet and...
