We stayed for two nights at the end of a long trip through New Zealand, and Roy was exceptionally helpful - above and beyond anything we could ask. Before our arrival he reached out to us via email to advise us about nearby roadwork and arrival details to ensure there were no problems. During our short stay, he helped us...

The Motel is in a great location. Walking distance to most places in the CBD and very close to Victoria St. The hotel is half a block from the casino. The rooms are nice and well equipped with a kitchenette. There is no AC, but it was cool when I stayed here so it was not a concern. The one...

As a regular to Christchurch and have stayed at many properties, Focus rates in my view as the best. Extremely comfortable, clean and the hosts are very accommodating. Will be staying here again on all future trips.

We were two couples looking for a two bedroom, two full bath suite in the central business district of Christchurch. The Focus Motel was just what we wanted. It is located within walking distance of most of downtown Christchurch and the Royal Botanical Gardens and parks. The room was neat and spacious and the staff very helpful. I would definitely...

This is a well kept andc spacious motel. The bedrooms are indeed separate from the living rooms. The owners are helpful and it is a very easy walk to the centre of Christchurch. Perfect place to stay on a visit to the city.

Thank you do much for my enjoyable two night stay for a wedding in Christchurch. Central location that was smart, modern, clean & efficient, with Carol and Roy giving it a 'homely' feel. The car park is gated for extra security at night. I have never had this facility at a motel before.

Carol & Roy took very good care of us, going beyond the requirements of a first rate host. They took care of booking a restaurant for us and Carol even drove us to another restaurant during rainy weather when the taxi company was not answering! She also helped me in the guest laundry room. My husband has Parkinson's and Carol...

I had high expectations of this place having read the Tripadvisor comments and wasn't disappointed. The host was extremely friendly and helpful, the room very clean and well-serviced. We were upgraded to a 2-bed apartment (not that we needed the extra bedroom) that had loads of space. It's an easy walk to the city centre and to other attractions like...
