We arrived at our motel to find the rooms were not good and as a result refused to stay there. Of course our employer had to pay for that night's accom but we set abt looking for an alternative which we were lucky enough to find... in Christchurch.

Awesome people and spoilt my wee girl. We're in Christchurch for not a nice reason but was made so much better by these people and great room. Very affordable and nothing is a problem. We will be back

We stayed for 3 nights. It was in a good location for everywhere in Christchurch. From my memory of visiting NZ, most of the places did not have a big water heater. Even for only two people couldn't have enough hot water for a shower. So I made an inquiry about the hot water situation and they told us that...

Very disappointing at first glance and on entry into the motel it was even worse. It is more of a backpacker style motel charging rates similar to other quality hotels. It reminds me of a boarding house. Room was spacious but noisy if you are located adjacent to Beasley Avenue.

Firstly, they have a 7 day cancellation policy which I'm sure is because everyone that gets there wants to leave straight away but doesn't want to pay and not stay. Either that or their clientele are pay by the hour types and don't care about the quality of their accommodation. It's old, drab, skungy bathrooms, ripped and stained carpet, old...

Street facing room was terribly terribly noisy. With the traffic lights outside its a stop start noise of vehicles that continually wake you up. Wouldn't recommend and wouldn't stay here again. Have been lying in bed trying to find somewhere to stay.

Booked through Trivago and Expedia. Central location with an easy walk to the city centre. Our room had recently been renovated and was modern and clean. Staff were welcoming and knowledgeable about local facilities.

The motel look old. It was super noisy because it just next to the high way. We could not sleep until really late and had to wake up quite early in the morning. Even though the staff are friendly but it can't make me come back there for the second time.
