Situated on a busy main road about 15 minutes drive from Airport. I think it was ok for a one night stay but I do not think personally it was 5 star accommodation. Compared to other hotels previously stopped at it was the worst one on the trip.

I enjoyed my stay here quite a bit. It's slightly further from the centre than I thought (I was hoping to walk) but it's a super easy drive and there is some free parking available by the gardens and then you can walk everywhere from there. There are several restaurants and a grocery store just down the block though so...

Definitely among the best motels we stayed at in New Zealand (and we stayed at many during our 2 week trip). The room was spacious, the bathroom and kitchenette were well appointed, and we had a big screen TV. Staff at the reception were friendly and helpful. The motel is close enough to the city centre to walk there in...

Check in was quick and easy, the gentleman was very helpful and willing to show us local attractions on the map. Room was clean and well kept. Noise from road wasn't too bad. Great location. Thanks for having us

On arrival it was a pleasant change to be greeted with good friendly conversation and helpful advice on your trip and not straight into booking details. Staff were very friendly and helpful, had good advice on the local area and of attractions which you had in mind to assist you on your stay.

Arthur's Court is a great little motel run by nice people. I stayed for two nights in February 2017 and the studio had almost everything I needed. Housekeeping offered to replace anything I needed on the second day as I was clearly just hanging out in my room, and I appreciated them not wanting to disturb me. The wifi was...

Check in was possible earlier than planned; Leon & Vivien brought our entire luggage over to the room; accommodation is very nice, very clean, comfortable and spacious; the kitchen is well equipped with all you need for a nice dinner

We only had one night in CHC and we chose Arthur's Court out of the many motels and lodges in CHC. The motel is clean and spacious, and had everything that we need. The only downside is that we were given a room that is right beside the busy road. We were fortunate though, that it wasn't too noisy at...

Stayed for a few nights. We had a very spacious room with two bedrooms and an additional bed outside in the main living area. It was a good basic motel with two bathrooms and kitchen. Clean rooms except for the curry odour when you come into the suite. The location is about 30 minutes from town (by foot) although we...
