very friendly hosts, very easy to find, warm unit. Nice easy use kitchen, which is very tidy. Only problem was shower moving and temperature fluctuation, will be sorted easily. Nice and private grounds with ease of parking spot for car.

We recently stayed here during a short stay in Christchurch from Australia. It is conveniently located near the international airport. The property offers free shuttle service to/from the airport. The room was very clean & comfortable with kitchenette facilities. There is a laundry room available with washer & dryer operated with $2 coins. The rooms are serviced daily.

A good and clean motel with friendly and very helpful owner. When I informed the owner that I needed to return to the airport the next morning to call the car rental company to pick me up to collect the car, the owner voluntarily offered to drive me to the car rental company directly to pick up the car.

This was a pretty good hotel. We reserved the suite, and it was worth the extra cost. The spa bath had an unusual layout in that the carpet leads right up to the tub in the same room as the bedroom/main room. This doesn’t negatively affect the room though, and doesn’t make the room feel damp. There weren’t many rooms,...

Great service from a fantastic gentleman. Airport pick up and everything you need! Coffee, tea etc available and a kitchenette in room. Very clean and well kept!! Book over the phone to save yourself a little bit of cash as there is an online booking fees added into the total !

If you need a motel close to the airport this one is great. Tucked in behind a residence the unit was well equipped for the traveller who just needed down time before heading out or home. The host guided us to the airport to drop our car and gave us the trip home at no extra cost. The unit was...

We needed a room for just one night before an early airport departure and came upon this place. Awesome! We could have stayed here for several days and been quite happy. The room is very modern and clean and like our own little house. The host was so nice and helpful and friendly. We were surprised to find a little...

My wife and I stayed here for a month in one of the two bedroom suites. The room felt very clean and updated, and had everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The proprietors provide outstanding service, very friendly and accommodating, which made our time there an excellent experience. I highly recommend this motel.
