Thanks Chris for keeping the motel and the accommodation "Schmick" Pristine! Even though we spent one night there, we woul certainly have enjoyed a longer stay. Breakfast is available should you require (minimal cost)

Due to a change in plans I did not stay here but all of the communication I had with Chris was first class, I was after a room to stay in with my pet whilst moving home to NZ (a very stressful time!) and they were very helpful and personable. I will be sure to keep them in mind for...

Sliding back the door, greeted by an extra large bed beautifully appointed and quiet. The warmth of the room sets the mood for a genuinely restful night. And it was. The room was very clean, and the furnishings were perfect in size and colours making everything flow. The bathroom was spacious and thankfully, no sterile white towels. Everything matched,and the...

Amazing, friendly staff. Warm greeting and helpful service. Room was excellent. Large king size bed, furnishings were very good. Small kitchen to make tea and coffee etc. The only draw back was the shower pressure was pathetic and there was no plug for the hair dryer in the bathroom which may be because of the law there but it would...

Room was lovely and warm when we arrived as lady had put heaters on. Bed was set out so stunning and the spa bath was divine. Only 1 couch in the room when you really needed 2 as nowhere for the other person to sit. The stay was lovely and the bed was very comfortable. Had the cooked breakfast but...

We stayed at the Strathern for about a week and will be checking in again when back in Christchurch in several weeks. The lodge was so comfortable and private - we loved it. Has a great location w walking distance to town and to the Merivale restaurant and shopping areas off Papanui St. It was an easy, pleasant walk to...

Good location, good facilities, clean and warm, but mostly...... Michelle, the receptionist is the type of person, who you hope to meet when checking in, after a good days driving. She was friendly and helpful, and even had the room all warm and comfortable, in time for our check- in

I have stayed in this Motel many times and have stayed in a variety of units. As with all accommodation in Christchurch it is quite pricey at $160/night for one person but the rooms are immaculately clean, warm and very recently refurbished with each unit looking very different. Outside looks slightly dated but very tidy and lots of well tended...

Reception very friendly. The motel looks a little older. It is rebfirbed inside and so clean. Really is home like and comfortable. Congratulations on a well kept motel. There are cooking facilities in the room and they are immaculately clean. All rooms have heating and electric blankets as Christchurch can get a little cool. Close to restaurants and shops -...

We only stayed one night but the room was perfect for us. Interesting decor, but super clean, massive spa bathtub, comfy bed and soft furnishings, well stocked kitchenette, milk and butter in the fridge, and lots of well thought out and generous organic amenities that you would see in any five star hotel. Easy 10 minute drive from the airport,...
