We spend our first and last nights here of our two week camper holiday. We arrived at 2 am in the morning and found the key where we were told it would be, the room nice and warm and fully equiped. Parking available. Nice quiet area close to all amenities

Overnight stay after a late flight in to Christchurch. Keys were left out for us and the room was prepared well for us with the heater on and lights left on. Staff the next morning were excellent and very helpful and pointed us in the right direction for breakfast at a good cafe 2 minutes away. Would definitely stay again.

Good value for money if not wanting to spend a lot on accommodation, bathroom was a bit tired tho and could do with a renovation, no allocated parking for your unit which would have been preferred, room well serviced daily

This motel is closer to the airport BUT there is no noise from the aircraft. We chose this motel as it was on the right side of the city to drive to the airport, and it was a straight drive there and the traffic was flowing very well. The accommodation was spacious and comfortable and very clean, the bed was... More

Fantastic place to stay at a reasonable price. Staff were really great. Close to all amenities. Lovely continental breakfast which was delivered to us the night before. We were even offered to park our vehicle while we were away.

Very good spacious accommodation fully equipped. Laundry room and helpful staff. Very clean all round. Great location for getting in to Christchurch city as bus stops just around the corner. We were on first floor and could sit on the verandah to catch the sun.

Close to the university and good value. Room was clean and functional. Great water pressure in the shower, though it was quite a small shower over a chubb so a big step to get into the shower. Friendly host and good parking outside of the unit.

This motel fit the bill after arriving late on a rainy night. Basic but clean and comfortable. It is kind of retro with glass, louvered door. It was a bit further from the airport then we thought. So, taxi was a bit expensive. Taxi drivers have to pay a surcharge to pick people up at the airport. They then have... More
