Our team members thoroughly enjoyed their motel room, and the service provided by your team there. They found the service and facilities exceptionally wonderful, and noted how clean everything was. Will definitely go there again.

As this trip was planned at the very last minute, we were happy we could get accommodation here. Especially with Saturday 17th being the All blacks rugby game and most of the accommodation throughout the city was booked out already. It is located within the Christchurch central area and it's very close to town. There's a restaurant and bar within...
