We stayed here a ouple of nights at the end of our NZ holiday and it was very hot inside the unit. Difficult to have the windows open due to th traffic noise and no air conditioning. The place was clean and had clearly recently been done over but the kitchen and the oven in particular left much to be... More

The Christchurch Motal is on a very busy main road so we throught it would be too noisy. To our surprise it was great. The room was at the back of the complex, very well designed, quiet, clean and comfortable. Much much better than our accommodation in Picton. We stayed here for 3 nights and really liked it. The reception... More

This motel was booked for us by our travel agent as part of a self drive tour. On the first night I utilised the guest laundry. The washing machine was $2 with $1 for soap powder and the dryer was $4. The dryer ran for 45 minutes so I was looking forward to crisp dry washing however everything was quite... More

Christchurch motel is good, decent, clean, value-for-money accommodation in a pretty good location close to central Christchurch. The service is friendly and helpful and I wouldn't hesitate to stay there again, or to recommend it to travellers on a budget. My only very small quibble concerns the wifi internet allowance. Guests are given 100MB for free -- this was probably... More

A rather roomy one bedroom apartment. Modest and simple accommodation. However the furniture, kitchenette, toilet are dated. Taps and cooking items are old and not advisable for you. Hot water flask heating coil is dirty and stained, likely mold. Used microwave to heat up water instead, which was safer. Pots and cooking stove was also old and not working well.... More

Motel located on busy main road not far from Westfield Riccarton Shopping Centre. Unfortunately we had an upstairs room, which was awkward carrying luggage upstairs in the wind and rain.

The rooms are advertised as being upgraded....yes to new furniture, carpet and vinyl but the bathroom was not touched and very dated. The bed was on the soft side and pressed hard against the wall (where the plugs for side lamps are, hence the reason they did not work as had been knocked out of socket). Bathroom had an old...

it was on the main road with lots of traffic but it was surprisingly quiet..we had an older looking room but it was very clean and roomy and there was even a kitchenette...iif you want to go to the shops or the pub it is further than they tell you but still a nice walk..
