We stayed for 3 nights during a tour of NZ and Mary & Mike couldn't have been more welcoming. They clearly love the city and always found time to talk about it and what we could do. They went the extra mile for us, booking restaurants, shuttle for the train etc and made our visit very enjoyable.Very happy to recommend...

We stayed at this property during a two week trip to New Zealand. This is a very well run property! The couple live there and the condition of the property shows their pride. We had a ground floor room right next to the laundry room and since I needed to do our laundry it was perfect. Clean, comfortable and well...

A terrific place to stay - located within walking distance of food, shopping and the park. The owners are very helpful and friendly. The rooms are nicely equipped, comfortable, and very clean. We'd recommend it to friends and definitely stay again.

During our three weeks in NZ we stayed in quite a few places and this was by far the nicest. We were made very welcome by Mike on our arrival. The rooms were lovely - comfortable sofa, comfortable bed, a great spa bath. We'd definitely stay again and would recommend it to friends.

Spent here our last night in NZ before flying back to Europe. Perfect location close to Hagley Park on Riccarton Road. But although Riccarton Road is a busy main road, room was quiet and calm. Downstair rooms have charming small "patios" in the back with table and chairs for outdoor sitting. Big well furnished rooms. Knowledgeable and friendly receptionist (owners...

We booked two rooms for a single night here and wished we could have stayed longer. Rooms and toilets were spotless, all utilities were working fine and there was milk in the fridge :) For those staying here, you must try Cafe Sismo- it's across the road and serves absolutely awesome all day breakfast. There are also many other food...

Mike and Mary make this stay special. Come in as travelers, leave as friends. Helpful tips for the traveler, central location to enjoy CHCH by foot or car, speedy internet, milk waiting in the fridge for our first morning early coffee.

Lorenzo Motor Lodge is in a perfect location for exploring Christchurch. It is in walking distance to Hagley Park, The Botanical Gardens and The Canterbury Museum. There are also shopping and dining options nearby. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The lodge is 15 minutes from the airport and a 5 minute ride to the train station.
