This was a basic but clean motel with good parking. It is in a good location for staying at as you fly into Christchurch before setting off to explore this beautiful South Island. The staff were extremely helpful as we needed them to look after our suitcases for us whilst we met with friends - as we had already checked...

Stayed two nights here with family and couldn't be happier. Excellent location, nice and clean and the staff were very helpful - ie we needed an extra towel as my hair is very long and that was no problem at all. Kitchenette was handy and plenty of room. Very affordable too.

We booked a room with shared bathroom but the friendly-receptionist offer us to upgrade the room. It is not just a room, but a house i reckon! it is fully equipped with small living room, kitchen facilities, bathroom with tub which makes it a perfect stay! It is quite a big space for only two of us but we loved...

It's not new but it's in better condition than my house. It's clean, conveniently located, and really good value. With nice people running it why would you want to stay anywhere else? This is the third time I have stayed and it won't be the last.

A very warm, friendly welcome. Good location and did the job. Signs of wear and tear (pots and iron) but was clean, had everything we needed, space to relax, and was value for money. As with everywhere in Christchurch, building noise from next door couldn't be helped. Free 500mb Internet a day with Zenbu wasn't really enough though, but saying...

My partner and I visited here assuming we'd paid for a full function room cause that's what we were told (i.e With a toilet, shower etc) but instead what they had given us was a room with a bed with an electric blanket that didn't work, a barely functioning fridge and a jug. We had to share a bathroom and...
