We recently stayed at Salerno for 3 nights. We requested an upstairs room which was provided and although the motel is on a very busy road, the room itself was very quiet. Our room was very spacious and clean when we arrived and the king size bed was one of the most comfortable beds I have slept on. We did...

Rooms are perfectly clean, comfortable, everything works and the bathroom is fabulous. Thoroughly recommend for a simple place to stay, rest and experience ChristChurch from. Easy 15 minute walk to the City Centre. Took a taxi twice, at a cost of NZ$11 and NZ$17. The motel staff are very helpful, although reception is not 24 hours, every time I needed...

Stayed two nights where the room had everything that you need. Nice big room that was clean and small kitchenette with everything we wanted for crockery, glasses and cutlery. Also had a massive spa bath. Good central location although only compromise is that Bealy is a busy street. Other than that can't fault it!

Overall we enjoyed our stay. Excellently appointed apartment in good location. It had its own washing machine and dishwasher. The washing machine was a front loading washer/dryer with limited instructions. We downloaded the manual from the Internet and worked it out. Next motel same machine much better instructions. The room needed some basic maintenance broken cupboard handles and sink that...

Booked into this apartment thinking it had a restaurant and bar, it had neither and the room service was shocking. They did not replace the tea,coffee,sugar,milk soap toilet rolls even the 2 extra towels we required for the spa bath. Not a happy experience

What a rave review!!! We never listed that we have a restaurant or a bar! For the room service, we have a very clear door sign to inform the staff to clean/service the rooms, they will not disturb you if your door sign shows" privacy requested", however, we still willing to help if you forgot to put sign up, a...

Reasonably priced and clean, the staff are accommodating and pleasant. In a convenient location, right in the city. We will stay here next time we're in Christchurch. Bealey Ave is right on the fringe of the CBD. It's a 10 minute walk from the picturesque Hagley Park.

For the low cost I was extremely impressed with the room which had a nice new kitchen, very comfortable bed, nice big spa bath which we used every night. The staff are lovely and went the extra mile for us a number of times throughout our stay: our room was cleaned even when we left our room considerably after 10.00am;...

As a frequent visitor to Christchurch for some 25 years now for family reasons (aka the "contractual obligation" tour) I have come to realise that short term accommodation is a bit of a hit or miss affair in this city. We finally found the perfect hotel then the 2010/2011 earthquakes intervened and rendered the building uninhabitable: sadly we had to...

I believe we have suitcase rack in the room for your suitcase, if you need a big room with more space, the family unit (2 bedroom apartment) is the way you should go because you had 3 adults. All our rooms are double glazed, some times we had street noise because of the boy racers, however that is public issues...
