Room smelt of cleaners. Shower head kept falling down. Did the job but a bit average. It was a good location but i felt it was a bit dated and could have done with an upgrade. I will not be staying here again.

Stayed here for one night after getting off the train and before getting on the plane home the next day. They promote a free pick up service from the train station, but this only applies if you book with the hotel directly (they charged $10 per person if you book through Expedia, etc. and then request a pick up). Couple... More

We had a short stay, only overnight for a concert so didn't spend a lot of time here. However the staff were helpful and very friendly, (storing our bags the next day was no problem). The rooms were clean, and comfortable. With the Westfield Riccarton across the road the motel is in a good location.

Stayed 1 night after a flight from Sydney. The hotel was easy to find from the airport. The room was reasonably comfortable well equipped and very clean. On check in we were given a carton of fresh milk and one of juice, as well as several free internet vouchers. Dan on reception was cheerful and a pleasure to deal with.... More

This motel is situated well - directly opposite the Riccarton Mall. The motel itself is of good quality but could do to be refurbished shortly. The host Dan and his staff were excellent - they were always checking that we were happy - even did our washing for us!
