The suede-like covering on the lounge suite was filthy and I didn't want to sit on the couch or chairs. It just isn't what I would call luxury accommodation in this day and age. I think it needs some TLC to get it's mojo back.

Lovely motel great location within walking distance to down town. Took the trolley hop on hop off which was really great, fun and informative. Public bus right around the corner which takes you to the gondola if you want a cheaper option. Supermarket, liquor store , pharmacy, restaurants all within walking distance. Only negative about motel is the shower, not...

Having a washing machine and dryer in the room was a definite plus, the room overall was clean, however, a little tired and had some work that needed doing, i.e. broken power socket in bathroom, what looked like a dent/crack in the bath, air conditioning didn't work or was hard to work out (no instructions). There was also some paint...

We visited with another couple and our room was ok, nothing special a litte worn out. The view on the little balcony was over a back lot not very relaxing to look at. The real problem was with our friends room. It had the smell of a very strong room deodorizer when first walking in(terrible) they were trying to cover...

We had a 3 night stay here during a 2 week visit through New Zealand. Our room had all the kitchenette items such as a small fridge and microwave, and we got a complimentary breakfast delivered to the room. There was no a/c, but if we kept the windows open, the room stayed cool. The bed didn't have much room...

After reading several reviews, I felt disappointed with the accomodation. I would not describe it as luxury, in fact it was average. Clean but the rooms could do with decorating, the colours were drab and the furniture dated. The kitchen area had a washer and dryer with powsder provided. There was a microwave and a portable grill for cooking. Staff...

Terra vive is a comfortable, spacious,clean and well equipt motel. Brian who is on hand was very accomodating and check in and out was a breeze. It is well situated and an easy walk in to the main part of Christchurh. Everthing was very accessible. All in all we were very pleased.

Terra Vive is a very good, 'honest' Motel, with well appointed, very comfortable suites, everything you need in them, and on site parking... We stopped there twice on our travels! Check-in & out were dead easy, and Brian was happy to 'hold' our luggage while we went into the city prior to our airport transfer. It's also very well positioned,...

This is a small place with just a few rooms but we love the personal touch of having Brian (the owner) on premises. The shower was fantastic, perfect after a long trip. Location is good, just outside of downtown. The room was a bit warm and like most places we stayed there is no a/c. No worries we left the...
