Stayed here the weekend before the Feb earthquake. The staff were fantastic and friendly. Helped with anything we needed for our 15 month old boy. The room was very clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed. The motel is located on a busy street, and it does get a bit noisy outside. The rooms are well insulated so no problems...

Our first impression of New Zealand and Christchurch, in particular, was created in large part by the first-class accommodation we enjoyed at the Salerno Motel Apartments on Bealey Avenue. The spacious, colorful and clean apartment came with all the amenities and modern features you could hope for. We shared a two-bedroom suite with another couple for five days. They also...

This was a perfect start of our 4 week tour of New Zealand. Sparkling clean and like new rooms were all that you could want. The location is great for walking into the city. Our 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom suite had all the amenities of a luxury suite and big enough for our group of 16 to assemble for briefings.

The staff of Radio Live cannot speak highly enough of the way we were looked after during what was a trying time for the hosts of Salerno in the aftermath of the Christchurch earthquake. The rooms are top notch; stylish, extremely clean and the beds so comfortable. Generous breakfasts available and chocolates/biscuits left daily. But what we appreciated most was...

Wonderful wonderful motel with rooms of 5 quality. The spa bath was amazing after a long day sight seeing. The location was perfect with a 10 minute stroll straight down to cathedral square. With a late arrival the hosts got our room ready and left the door open for us to enter late at night so we did not have...

I cannot speak too highly of Pauline and Brendan at Salerno. They took in 4 frightened Tasmanians on the night of the Earthquake and made us feel welcome and secure. Although there was no water or power, we were warm, dry and safe thanks to them. The lack of sleep had nothing to do with the enormously comfortable bed and...

Salerno offers modern, roomy, and comfortable rooms with well-stocked kitchens. It is easy walking distance from the Christchurch town centre, tourist attractions, and many fine to outstanding restaurants. Pauline and Brandon are wonderful and friendly hosts and will always offer the local's take on places to go, see, and eat. I just can't say enough good about this place! Stay...

This motel was a perfect place to arrive after a long drive. Spotless, roomy with tasteful decor. Well located. The owner was welcoming and had great advice. I emailed them after the earthquake and they have informed me that the motel is fully operational.

Welcomed by very generous owners on the day of the earthquake. They offered spare accomodation, blankets and mattresses, opened their private home, BBQ facilities, and provided an amazing meal in the aftermath of the earthquake, having lost all electricity and running water. We were 'hotel-less' and very scared, they were amazing....nothing was too much to ask. The facilities were of...
