We spent 5 nights in this motel in November. Spotlessly clean, comfortable, warm and quiet. The managers are so helpful and friendly. Highly recommended. We enjoyed our stay here immensely. Thank you.

Stayed in motel for 10 days during business visit. The stay was comfortable, room was serviced daily, kept clean and pristine. Netflix, sky TV and wifi Internet is a plus . Thanks to Steve, the hospitality was amazing. Best business stay. Close to Airport, Shopping places and restaurants near by is an advantage. A quiet stay away from the central...

We booked at the last minute needing somewhere handy to St George Hospital. Cranford Oak were very obliging and put a single bed in the unit at our request, nothing was a bother. Sky TV, free Wifi, spotlessly clean and plenty of parking. This cosy motel ticks all the essential boxes. Thanks to the lovely folk at Cranford Oak.

Stayed for the first time at Cranford Oak Motel in Christchurch - it will not be the last! We were most impressed with the high standards displayed by the motel manager hosts, Steve and Feng, from arrival to departure. Having stayed in a wide range of accommodation throughout Australasia and UK, I consider that these hosts definitely have the right...

Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this motel. The room was okay for two although my friend slept on the pull-out couch, which took up a lot of the space and couldn't really be folded back during the day. The hosts were incredibly friendly and helpful and prepared to change things around so we could get a ground floor room. The...
