We are in Christchurch in the early evening by Inter-City Bus from Mt. Cook. The owner met us at the bus stop and took us right to our room, now that is service. The room was excellent, clean, roomy and a nice private bathroom. Great experience and all our tours either picked us up in front of the Motel with the exception of the day we departed at that was at the Double Tree 2 Blocks away. So it was no problem. It is also directly across from a beautiful park.

Very friendly staff and a cute little motel just at the north edge of the CBD (a 20 minute walk to the center of the city). The room had a nice living room with dining table, in addition to the bedroom. The shower was incredibly weak, sadly. There was a washer and dryer onsite that was pretty cheap and useful and the staff were kind enough to let us finish the laundry even after it nominally closed.

Only stayed for 1 night, wish we'd have added an extra night in Christchurch now but can't change that now.
Apt was really spacious with pretty much everything you could want. Cooking facilities, large, bed large bathroom
Rick was very friendly and offered loads of advice on things to do. Nice bloke.
Definately recommend it here and will return if ever in Christchurch.

Family of four. We stayed for 8days in a two bedroom 4 bed unit. Staff were amazing. Arrived to warm clean rooms each night. Staff helped with suggestions for ways to book attractions cheaper and gave great restaurant recommendations!. It was a wonderful delightful stay. Would highly recommend this place.

This motel was a gem. Rick was so helpful in restaurant choices and an Allen key for wheelchair repairs was a godsend. Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable. Much appreciated. The ride to the train station also saved us a bit of cash.

Hey team. We had a rental car that we dropped back to the airport as we flew out. The motel is very close to central Christchurch so you could walk to airport shuttle bus route or grab a taxi for maybe $30. Safe travels... More
