Spacious rooms seem even larger overlooking lovely garden and trees. Always made to feel welcome, with heaters warming the room on arrival in the winter. Clean and comfortable with practical extras like,cling wrap and tin foil-useful for travellers! The free Wi-Fi is a bonus too. Close to airport, supermarket and restaurants, but with the surroundings it feels as though one...

Thank you for your review. Our Motel is unique in that we have large lawns and gardens, great for young families or just relaxing. We are semi rural but only a few minutes drive to the local super market, shops and restaurants. It's great that you enjoy staying with us.

Clean, comfortable and tidy with everything we needed for a quick stop over. We were in a unit running along the main highway, the noise was not bad at all and we were able to sleep soundly. Close to the airport and 2 supermarkets are within a 5 minute drive.

The spaciousness of the rooms and large beautiful grounds was just what we needed. Rosebank winery next door with large beautiful gardens to sit and have a coffee or wine or even a meal was an extra bonus, with the Groynes also within walking distance, with streams and playgrounds. All on your doorstep. Plus very friendly and helpful staff. Diane...

We booked the self contained three bedroom townhouse and it did not disappoint. It had everything you would expect in a motel unit and more! The kitchen was huge, shame we didn't have time to use it! If we return to Christchurch for a longer stay would book this out as it would be great for week or more. It...

Our party of four had the townhouse because of our need for 4 separate beds. The spaciousness of the upstairs and downstairs areas was just what we needed and the cook was in heaven being able to use a large kitchen. The accommodation is close to The Groynes, a delighful series of parks, streams, picnic spots and play areas for...

The bathroom is in need of urgent upgrade, floor completely floods when showering as shower glass walls dont connect to floor, dont leave clothes on floor when showering... Dual access to rooms good but in need of nice pathways around all units, clear of large planter barrels. Lovely surroundings, road noise, so not quiet if in unit by road. Clean...

In response to your review, sorry to take so long to respond but I feel I need to put this into context. This group stayed for 1 night. The guests had returned from a wedding, at around 1.30am I got a call from another guest complaining about your group talking in loud voices and swearing outside. All visitors are required...

Reviewed 24 November 2012

The gardens are lovely but the rooms are poorly maintained with dated decor. It is situated on SH 1 and the traffic noise goes all night. Also not cheap compared to others in Christchurch of a higher standard. The owners were friendly and helpful. This could be and of the nicest motels in Christchurch but it needs work.

We flew in to Christchurch after a long flight from China, and it was so nice being met by the lodge's transfer service. The Chardonnay is only 8 minutes down the road from the airport and is in a beautiful rural type setting. Right behind the lodge is a winery in which to eat, and then behind that is a...

My mum and I stayed here at the beginning, and end, of our NZ holiday in November 2007 (had to select 2011 as dates didn't go back that far). Located not too far from the airport with a lovely winery next door. Very quiet and homely with views of farmland all around. The drive to Christchurch is about 15-20 mins...
