Reviewed 1 August 2017

Because of a serious delay of JETSTAR, we arrived at this motel 6 hours later. It was already 8 pm with rainy weather. The reception was still waiting for us. During the 3 days' living we felt warm and comfortable in the wet and cold winter. The room has a good view and facilities can help us do some simple cooking. It not far from Park n Save, New World and K mart. Driving to city only takes 10-15 minutes. Driving to the airport is not too far as well and quite easy to find. If it is the first time u visit Christchurch, it is really a good choice.

A great motel, easy to find, very clean and comfortable and it was quiet. The manager was very welcoming and was able to answer all our queries. We appreciated that later in the day when we were out the staff turned on our heater ensuring we returned to a warm room.

Christchurch has a very good bus system which we used rather then taking our car into the CBD and the Riccarton shopping mall. As the bus stop was about 100 metres away from the motel it was a most convenient way to get about.

The Cranford oak motel was one of the nicest places I've stayed at in terms of friendliness service, and location. Probably the most notable item I experienced was the hotel manager Steve. Having never been to New Zealand Steve made sure I was comfortable and helped with me learning my way around. I could go on but I will just say great place to stay and I will be going back!!!!

The room are nice with good shower and bathroom facility. Not much place for seating down in the room. We had the room on the end so it was very noisy from the road traffic.
The manager was nice and gave us fresh milk for the coffee. Lots of parking in front and good WiFi. Location is a little far from all attractions.

Room Tip: Get rooms close to the office.

A great spot to stay about 10 minutes from the airport. Hosts Feng and Steve show pride of ownership in this cute motel with well appointed, tidy and very clean rooms. Cable TV included with fast free wifi. Free parking too.

Room Tip: All rooms seem to have excellent furnishings and location. All good.
