I have been regularly travelling to Christchurch for the past two years. Focus Motel is always my first choice for accommodation. Roy and Carol are most welcoming (even when I arrive after midnight) and my room is always clean, the bed comfortable and it feels like home! I highly recommend the Focus Motel.

After a long flight from England, Roy and Carol immediately made us feel welcome. Our room on the ground floor was clean and nicely fitted out. The bed was large and comfortable, and the small kitchen area was great for a spot of breakfast. We left for a 4 night trip and kept some luggage at the hotel. When we... More

Roy & Carol are lovely hosts and the suites are superb. Roy showed us around when we arrived and gave us some really helpful info about ChCh, as it was our first time. We had a studio room which was decorated to a very high standard and excellently equipped with bath and shower, Sky TV and a really well designed... More

We spent 3 nights here, and the place was fantastic. Room was very clean, plenty of space, well appointed, and bedding was comfortable. Location is perfect, walking distance to city centre, as well as Victoria St restaurants and bars. Managers were very helpful in providing local advice.

We were very happy with our stay at the Focus Motel, spotlessly clean and Roy was very friendly and helpful. The room had a nice living room area and kitchen and the separate bedroom had a wonderfully comfy king sized bed.

I was driving from Queenstown and it took longer than I thought, and I arrived about 30 minutes after the office closed. I phoned on the way to make arrangements, and was surprised that Roy and Carol waited up for me. My modern apartment was great, and so was the location. Walking distance to the city, right near the casino,... More

This Motel is ideally situated in the centre of Christchurch. We were very kindly upgraded to one of the suites on the first floor which was beautifully clean and spacious and even has its own balcony. The bed was really comfortable which was ideal after a month touring in a campervan! The hosts were lovely and very accommodating with our... More

We were pretty pleased with our two bedroom suite at the Focus. It was clean and tidy, and the linen was comfy. Our daughter also liked the chocolates that were left on our beds.

Sleek, chic and a very friendly welcome. Only wish we could have stayed longer. We kindly got upgraded for no extra charge and the suite we were upgraded to was lovely. I would recommend this motel to people of all ages. Great location and great motel!
