Stayed two nights, would have loved to stay longer. The 'units' are really self contained studio flats with kitchen facilities to cook. The room and bathroom are 'oversized' with plenty of space. On site parking is available. The unit was exceptionally clean - spotless!

The facilities here are spot on. I stayed with my mother in a studio with two king single beds (which were very comfortable!). The room was big enough for two people to move comfortably in and had a very plecent appearance. The windows are double glazed which made a huge difference. We were not disturbed by any outdoor noises. The...

Stayed in a twin room with my daughter while visiting my son at uni. Was close to uni and to shops. Room was lovely. Spacious and clean. Had a rental car and parked at motel. Convenient. My previous visit I'd stayed in town which was nice but much harder in terms of parking and all the road works. Will stay...

I was in Christchurch for the weekend, staying at the FYFFE on Riccarton. The location was not too far from the airport and handy (walking distance) to the Riccarton mall and other shops. The check-in/check-out processes were a breeze and the people at reception very helpful. The room itself was well laid out and had good lighting. The kitchen facilities...
