Hotel is located opposite the mall (which has the nice Kmart I have ever seen!). Easy bus ride into downtown Christchurch (which is still in disrepair). I had a 2 bedroom apt with one queen room and other with two twins. Separate living area with expanded cable on the TV and a small kitchen. Furniture dated but clean and i...

Another work trip and late booking. Very busy in town and ended up with a two bedroom unit at a reasonable price. Very clean and tidy place but a little dated. Reception was very nice and informative. The rooms were well set out but minimal. Good parking off a very busy street and a 10-15 minute stroll to restaurants etc....

My favourite place in Christchurch to stay. It's clean, very easy to commute from. The owners and staff are friendly and welcoming. Would recommend this to any business overnighter or tourist. Good eateries close by.

The room were clean but a bit outdated, the room furniture in particular looked tired. Unfortunately the bathroom was in disrepair, evidence of mould in the shower tiles. The location is handy to shopping with a eateries further down Riccarton Road

Stayed in room 810 and noted when filling bath no blind on bathroom window which was right at top of stairway that everyone uses and can see into. Clean and tidy though, just please put a blind up. Also no where to leave key at reception as I left very early in the morning so had to leave room unlocked.

This motel is well located in Christchurch Motel Zone, pretty easy to access from airport, surroundings are nice and convenient, many shops, and westfield mall. However, we stayed with booking on line, they mess-up our booking, which we need re book again, very lucky we got the room to stay, however, their attitude and lack of customer service skill made...

Great place to stay. Nice and peaceful but not too far from the Riccarton mall. There were 5 in our family and our unit was great. I would not have any issues in staying here again or to recommend to others to stay. Thanks for a great stay

My husband and I stayed in the hotel with our 12month old son. It has a lovely bathroom with huge spa bath which was a nice touch, and a nice little area to have a drink outside while our son fell asleep. Its nothing special but its fairly new and very clean.

I was needlessly concerned that this was the only place with 4 rooms available with the Cricket World Cup in town. Very nice modern room with all the amenities. Very new and tidy premises. I can't say much about the service as checkin was so quick that I barely got to speak to staff and was gone again before the...
