Was put in the end unit of the place and it was the noisiest place ive ever stayed. The motel is on the main road (main road of the south island) and trucks drive past ever 3 seconds. Couldnt sleep, left the next day. When we informed the owner, he said "you must live in the country".

Stayed one night, Very comfortable, but could do with a re paint as a bit smoky on the walls Kitchen facilities were good. View from lounge a bit of a pinch, very close to Caroline Bay Good towels and face clothes, nice amenities, tea coffee and hot chocolate , Also a decaffination coffee.

Stayed one night here in a studio unit with its own little balcony overlooking Caroline Bay. Comfortable unit and enjoyed the spa bath with complimentary toiletries. Pleased to be allowed a late check out at no extra cost. Very handy. would stay here again.

The motel management looked after the place as if it was his own. Beautiful views of the harbour was picturesque and location of motel was close to all the cafe's and restaurants - we especially enjoyed the Indian restaurant If you like roses you will be in for treat. Not just the roses at the motel is amazing, but also...

We stayed a night recently and found the place really clean and comfortable. The owners were very friendly and their little doggie is such a smashing little fellow. The place was a little over priced, but then again we were happy to pay the premium for the cleanliness and comfort. Ross & Visa Kumaran. Merivale Christchurch

Called a few weeks before and booked a room for 4 adults, was told that the cost would be $175 for the night. When we arrived to check in, told the person on reception that we were unsure if the fourth person would arrive (as they were unwell) but would confirm that in the morning when checking out. Went to...

Great location, easy access to beach and city centre by foot. Rooms clean and of good standard. No double glazing though so every noise could be heard so not the best place for a good night's sleep. The upstairs room had 4 single beds in it which was a bit OTT, am pleased there were only 2 of upstairs (2...

Our room was ready upon arrival. We were welcomed, given a newspaper and key. The room, although a little dated, was spacious and well equipped with kitchenette including cook top and microwave. We appreciated the little extras like plunger coffee, nice soaps and the teddy bear! The motel entrance is on a busy road which made access somewhat stressful and...

I have discouraged many from staying in this hotel. I booked a room with a friend while in Timaru for a girls night out with friends here. We had pizza made a punch and headed off to the location of the girls night. I didn't end up staying in the motel as we fell asleep at my friends place. We...

We booked this as the closest place available to Christchurch airport (lack of planning on our part during the Cricket World Cup). It was reasonably priced (cheap) and we weren't expecting much. The hotel owner was helpful and friendly. The room was very good - clean, comfortable, recently decorated, spacious and had all the facilities we could have asked for....
