Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 August 2012

Stayed here for one night. Room was decent size bed was comfortable, good size bathroom, the best feature was the location, short walk to Hagley park, and a longer walk to the Riccarton mall, but ther were cafe, restaurant garages etc all very close by.

Picked Roma from TripAdvisor reviews. Location is good - short walk to Riccarton Mall, Hagley Park, 2 excellent cafe's across the road, restaurants. Parking at the motel. 1 bedroom apartment for 2 people, double bed in the bedroom, single bed in living room. Strong smell of takeaways in the room. Moved couch a little and showed up dirt etc. Building tidy and new-looking, rooms unusual layout, furnishings old. Shady section. Good privacy. Small private outdoor area was nice. Basic kitchen facilities. Overall size of rooms and bathroom pretty good. 100MB free wireless internet. Friendly and helpful owners. Value for money? No. I'd pay more for better next time. Since Chch earthquake the cost of renting a self-contained unit has increased significantly, particularly in good locations like Riccarton Rd. The shower at Roma was the best part - excellent pressure!

Room Tip: Ask for a sunny/bright room. Rooms furthest from Riccarton Rd are the most quiet.

My consistent theme!

I think I’ve written a review on this motel before but I was there again a couple of nights ago and as I only write reviews on the very good and the “could be improved” establishments otherwise I’ll be spending more time as an amateur journalist and have to give up my ‘real” job, I felt compelled to make another mention for superlative service which is my consistent theme on what differentiates the sublime from the average.

I’d developed a cold and cough over the past few days and when I stayed at the Roma this week, it was severe and I didn’t get much sleep as I was coughing and spluttering all night. In the morning when I went to check out I mentioned this to Garry and Yvonne, the owners, and Yvonne immediately suggested a cough remedy that she recommended as when she was teaching as having a cough wasn’t conducive to standing in front of a class and coughing all over to them and this medicine was the most effective she’s ever come across.

I noted the name of the medicine and where to buy it from but then Yvonne came out and gave me a new bottle of this! Now, how many motel or hotel proprietors would do this?

Again, another superb example of superlative service!

Well done, Garry and Yvonne!

Room Tip: I had room five on the ground floor on this occasion and while the room was fine, I did note that n...

Stayed 2 nights in the spa studio. This was the best accommodation in our trip to various places in New Zealand. The room was nice and cozy. Convenient location, close to many restaurants and bars. Surprisingly calm even being on the main street. Kitchen was efficient. The best part was the jacuzzi. The owner is very nice and friendly. We'd love to stay there again in our next visit to Christchurch.
