We've stayed here twice and it has to be my top pick in Christchurch. This time we were in a two-bedroom suite and it was very well equipped and furnished, with modern bathrooms (including a bath), large TV and stereo. The location was quiet and the staff were accommodating and friendly. Free wi-fi was great. We'll be back!

I come to Chch often, and Focus is my favourite place to stay there. Each room is perfect, spacious and most have a balcony. It is safe and secure and walking distance to cool cafes and restaurants. Carol is an incredible host. She took the time to show us where to go eat, sites to see and made sure everything... More

We had a lovely room which was spotlessly clean and well appointed. We were upgraded to a One Bedroom with a balcony which was much appreciated. I work in the industry so very fussy when it comes to the standard of accommodation and I couldn't fault both the friendliness and customer service as well as the cleanliness and room presentation.

Lovely place to stay. Really tidy and immaculately clean with friendly staff. Exciting to see Chch on the mend and they have some great pop up cafes and re:start container mall a short walk from FOCUS. Also close by is the Museum, botanical gardens, Ballantynes and lots more. Would definitely stay again!!

Good new, well fitted motel room. Good comfortable beds, free secure parking. Convenient to the city with a short walk. Small kitchen with enough to have breakfast. Good range of TV channels. This seems like a very new place with all very clean and new fittings.

I decided to pay a premium and stay at the Focus so i would be closer to town and not need a rental car. I was not disappointed and the stay was excellent. The place is exceptionally clean. Very comfortable with good heating (-2 degrees outside!!!). The premium meant that I had free unlimited fast broadband, full package of SKY... More

I stayed here for 2 weeks, the owners were wonderful, informative and helpful. The rooms are north facing so my room had heaps of sun and warm and cosy. Walking distance to central CBD. On main bus routes

We stayed here only one night but enjoyed our stay. The room was very clean and well appointed and even had a balcony. The location is VERY central, but is right across the street from the casino.

We only stayed at the Focus for one night, as we were passing through, but I have to say I felt quite at home in our little studio room. It was comfy, modern and very clean.

I stay at the Focus regularly for business and figured I really should offer a positive review. Roy is always friendly and gets you sorted quickly and without fuss. The rooms are comfortable and large enough to allow you to relax or continue working. Internet speed is adequate for checking emails etc. Pretty quiet location so I always get a... More
