I stayed for four nights. The motel is comfortable, and the staff are friendly. The kitchenette in the motel room is very well-equipped. The bathroom had good water pressure. Everything was very clean and well-looked after. Late night check in was easy to arrange. Staff were very helpful in organising keys for a late night arrival. The motel is well-located...

The rooms were good, we had 6 girls visiting so all stayed in one room, however the bathroom had a strong smell of Mould and needed some love. Missing panelling on the floor, visible Mould etc please give it a good clean and improve the extraction of steam!!

Check in and out was prompt and quick. We got the upstairs unit and it was clean and had a sofa bed. Kitchen was fully equipped with all utensils provided. There's 2 heater in the room and living room (Thank God!) No problem with parking, abundant space available. Reception staffs were friendly. Definitely recommended. The only downside was the traffic...

We had a great stay at this motel. The price is very reasonable and it is well located being just around the corner from alot of restaurants. The room was comfortable and we even had our own little courtyard. People on reception were very friendly and welcoming. Yes I would stay here again

We checked in 4 days ago at this Southern Comfort Motel in Christchurch. Looks a normal motel. Bal the Filipino bloke manning his reception office takes service to customers to a higher level. We had issues with our flight booking and with all the limitations he has had to endure in managing the reception, he was outstanding in helping us...

Very happy with our three night stay at this hotel. Very comfortable bed, liked the separate lounge, well equipped kitchen. We had a unit at the back of the motel and it was very quiet and with our own little courtyard. I also liked the dispenser for soap and shampoo in the shower and liquid soap dispenser at the handbasin,...

This place is absolutely worth the money. The staff is really considerate for allowing early check in as we landed quite ahead of time. The location is amazing too. Only complaint is that we got a room facing the street. That was noisy. Also only if they had more heating in the room it would have been more comfortable.

Stayed in this motel twice when my friends and I landed late in Christchurch and when I'm flying off to Auckland. First time we booked a 4 bedroom apartment. Cosy place with full kitchen facilities and comfortable bed. The downside is poor water pressure in both bathroom. Still acceptable as my friends and I are only staying for a day....

We werent sure what to expect as we are generally hotel snobs. But this motel 2 bedroom apartment proved to be very good and had everything we needed. We were pleasantly surprised at the size and location. The only dampener were asian tourists next door talking until 3am in the morning outside our window. We politely asked them to keep...
