We stayed at Northcote at the beginning and end of our trip to NZ - total of 7 nights. So pleased with the friendliness and helpfulness of Mike and Elsa to make our stay enjoyable. The trampoline and swings in the back were wonderful for our kids to let off some energy. We stayed in the one bedroom standard and...

My family along with another family stayed here for two nights over Easter. The rooms that we had suited exactly what we needed. The playground outside our back door was particularly good as the kids could just come and go as they pleased. I would recommend Northcote Motor Lodge to anyone needing a place to put their head for the...

Thanks for your feedback Larry, yes it was unfortunate that the previous owner did not pass on your booking to us.

Therefore we decided the least we could do was offer you our four...

We booked this unit last minute and were very impressed with the quality and comfort. Hosts were friendly and welcoming. Bed was comfortable, shower great, room clean, tidy and well appointed. Having a couch to relax on was an added bonus. Am sure we will be back.

The rooms are spacious and very clean. It is very easy to find. It has everything that one wants in a room. The room rate was very reasonable compared to like motels in the area. Request a room in the back for less traffic noise.

Went with my family. Arrived very late and they arranged everything for us to pick up the keys at the reception. It's normal procedure, but they were very nice. Rooms were very clean. Facilities inside the room were perfect. Wi-Fi was ok. We were very satisfied, and recommended to everyone that would spend a couple of nights in Christchurch.

“Rooms bit drafty and being open plan takes a while to heat up - close all the bedroom & bathroom doors as soon as you get into room. Almost resorted to putting a towel down as a draft stop by the kitchen, but heater eventually worked.”
