Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Stayed for 5 nights. Was really happy with the room and the service. Nikky looked after us very well. I come to Chch once a year for work related purpose. I’ll definitely stay again next year. The premises are located off busy Riccarton road but the room is really quiet and sound proofed. Shopping centre is literally across the road

I have stayed at the Kauri Motel on Riccarton on a few occasions over the past few years when I have stayed for a night or two while travelling for work. Nicky is very friendly and welcoming. The rooms are very clean and have everything you need, with very comfortable beds and an amazing shower! The location is a winner - right across the road from Westfield Riccarton Mall and walking distance for everything you need - on my last trip I had an awesome breakfast at Park Ranger and delicious dinner at Budda Stix. Finally if you have a car, there is free parking! Definitely recommend this place !

We stayed at the Kauri Motel for a few nights while visiting the South Island from Houston, TX. Although our room was small, it was clean, modern, quiet and had all of the amenities- to include a fabulous spa tub. The motel is in a great location, directly across from the mall with quick access to a coffee shop and supermarket; several restaurants, pubs, and quaint shops are within walking distance as well. Even with the location on a busy road, our room was soundproofed and you'd never know it. Helen is a fantastic host and went out of her way to help us with directions, road conditions, etc. on more than one occasion. Would stay here again on our next visit to Christchurch.

To accept a booking on line the motel has entered into a binding contract. When they advise that room is not available and have to break the contract, they should have endeavoured to find me another room. Disappointing situation, more so because the town was all but full, however I will say the receptionist was pleasant in handling a difficult situation.

We booked three rooms with the hotel directly as our first stop in NZ. The hosts were very responsive and sent various emails to enquire about our needs before we arrived.

The best thing about the hotel is its location. Directly opposite riccarton mall which has restaurants and supermarket. In terms of rooms and services its hits and misses. While the hosts took the extra effort to ask whether we need baby cot it was not provided when we arrived. The rooms were generally ok but one of the room located on the second floor corner had a glass door which was a hassle as you had to pull a curtain to open the door. The toilet which had a spa tub was very small and had little room to walk and turn. One of the heaters broke down during our stay and it took them a while to get us a portable heater.

The checkin and out is fast and hassle free but thats probably because there are no other guests. Do take note that there's no lift so you will need to carry your luggage up the stairs if u stay on the second floor.

The location of this motel, right adjacent the Riccarton Mall, is all it has going for it. The room was tiny, with small windows and no outlook. The room was cold and dark and the bathroom cramped. The mirror in the bathroom was so low you had to crouch to see yourself and there was no rubbish bin in the bathroom. It was reasonably clean, but worn. service was friendly and homely. Won't be staying again.

Spent one night here on way back to Australia, was great place, very close to shops. Situated on very busy road but did not hear any noise at all. Very comfy beds, great shower and heater in bathroom which we needed. Would recommend for sure

Opposite a major shopping mall and with bus stop within few minutes walk - on the route from Christchurch Airport - so very handy. Rooms are always well maintained. Double glazing ensures quiet and heat pump for warmth. Changed management since last stay but welcoming and efficient.

See comments about terrific response to lost property. Basically they went to alot of trouble to return it. Additionally, there was a warm and welcome greeting when we arrived on a wetand windy day. Location is handy (across the street) to an open-early cafe selling quite ok coffee and breakfast items.

We lucked out when our planned accom at another motel didn't have our booking and were full up - so we tried the Kauri - the kind lady at Kauri booked us in to a really nice room for the two of us - this motel is close to shops e.g. Katmandu and also some good food places, like the steaks at the sports bar a short walk down the road - this is valuable for guests as a lot of motels in Christchurch don't have a restaurant on the premises and many are not close to cafes or restaurants - the Kauri motel also has quick access to the Trans-Alpine rail station - this motel was nice and really good value for money - so five stars in this price range - this review is from Keith in Australia
