I've stayed here a few times and I like this place. Good sized room, strong shower, great heating / air conditioning, a desk lamp to do work with, now it has unlimited internet (recent innovation and well overdue), great kitchen facilities, a mirror with a light to aid shaving. Almost perfect. It has Sky but only those silly five channels...

I stayed here for three nights with several adult family members. We had a two bedroom suite. The whole place was very clean. The bed was comfortable, it was very quiet at night and I slept well. The blocks are two storeys and I think there was someone in the upper unit but we never heard them. There is good...

Thank you for putting a great review online for us, just to get you up to speed with your comment on body wash and shampoo, the Accommodation sector is moving in this direction to try and be environment friendly as much as possible and this is one area where there is a huge amount of plastic bottles going into landfill...

We chose this motel for our first night after flying in to Christchurch (one couple ex Tauranga; the other ex London) for its location, its reputation for comfort, cleanliness and proximity to suitable watering holes. In planning our 10 day journey around the southern half of the South Island we felt that Lincoln offered the opportunity to get on the...

I couldn't rate this place any higher. The friendliness and professionalism shown by the staff really impressed me and the room followed suit. Clean, tidy and modern with everything you could need. I wouldn't hesitate booking this lovely place again, and I found the little town of Lincoln delightful too!

Excellent place, great hosts, clean, modern, very well kitted out. We were not short of anything and were well received when requesting anything. Second stay and just as good as the first visit. Will definitely come back.

We stayed here one night and couldn't have been happier; it's a wonderful motel with every amenity you could want......very comfortable room, excellent bed, free wi fi, kitchen equipment etc. The location is quiet and really wonderful in terms of having several great restaurants just a few blocks away......it was also spotlessly clean and staff was excellent. Highly recommended.

Well where do I start. This property is all kinds of magic. My delight started on check-in with a quick and easy streamlined process. Offered milk in a couple of different colour choices, a small and tasty bottle of orange juice and a daily paper makes this accommodation stand out from most NZ motel accommodation already. Taken to an upstairs...

Our room was spacious, had nice cooking and bathroom facilities, was very quiet, and the staff were very helpful to us. The motel is pretty new, so that explains how sparkling everything appeared. Very very clean!!

We originally booked for one night as we had a wedding to attend in nearby Tai Tapu, however our plans had to change after the Seddon earthquake and we needed to change our booking. This was not a problem, the owner happily accommodated our request and on arrival we were greeted with a very friendly and efficient lady who was...

My husband and I and then my son and I have stayed at the Lincoln Motel on a couple of occasions over the past month. The units are very modern and clean and would rate as one of the nicest we've stayed at in NZ. Nice furnishings, bathroom facilities and the owners and their staff are very friendly. Would highly...
