Good location was about the only good thing. Dated units, worn carpet, office smelt of cigarette smoke, towels in rooms also smelt of smoke, grubby surfaces. Bed mediocre. You can get FAR better in Christchurch for the same or not much more.

We had a 3 night stay - were were down for a family reunion. Our unit was dirty with dust everywhere, and carpet stains "hidden" under carpet. There was hazard tape on the floor of the shower base, and there was a "spongy" feel to the base like it would give way and wasn't safe. They did not re-supply tea/coffee...

This is yet another motel in Christchurch that is now run by people who have a very limited command of English. There is nothing about it that is modern but it was clean and tidy. The bed was comfortable but the is no heating and no fan so it is very much a mild weather location. The wifi worked well....

Arrived late afternoon. Upon opening the door to room 4 we were greeted by an almost overpowering stench of cat urine which the motel representative couldn't smell!.. He offered to spray some air freshener. I told him that wouldn't get rid of the smell. We didn't see him for the rest of our two night stay. It was a warm...

If you are coming on winter time please make sure there is room heater on your room. We came here at the end of summer and it was raining, for that the room was cold and we hadn't find any room heater. We had bed heater which is not good enough. The stuff wasn't good enough....😡😡😡

I booked in here because Christchurch was super full and it was all I could find so my expectations weren't high. Based on this I was happy with my stay, my room was aged, basic but well cleaned. Staff were very friendly and helpful. They need netting curtains though.

We booked online and thought it was a great deal and so easy considering we were coming Boxing Day. Staying one night and was extremely disappointed with this place. Booked for myself, partner and son. Dust everywhere. Stains on the sheets and carpet. Looks like no body has bothered to look behind beside table or tv. Not ideal parking unless...

I phoned the Hotel directly to ensure a sofa bed was made up as two single girls. This was not done, we arrived late so I did not want to disturb manager and took a sheet off the double bed. No milk in the fridge. These things mentioned by phone, manager took no responsibility and did not discount either. I...

when booking online I should have checked out some reviews, fortunately I was only booked in for one night $100. Staying in the middle of winter my first room was freezing and stunk, obviously why all its windows were left open. The furniture was covered in stains while the carpet was also. The room was very dated. I than asked...
