Thank you for your review. Great to see you had a quiet nite with us. The back section units and double glassing worked well to keep us away from the traffic noise:) A wee recommendation: we also have a large 3 bedroom family unit with a big lounge just opposite the smaller one that you had. This unit has all...

Like most others, we found this place to be quite clean. The unit that we had (#8) seemed small, but the property itself isn't huge and there are good number of units placed in the small amount of space, so I doubt any of them are very large. The bathroom was the smallest portion of the unit. The ceiling above...

Thank you for your review. Hope you enjoyed your stay in our twin studio. As there are 2 beds in the same room, the size of the room looks a bit small, the standard studio with only one bed will give you more space in the room and cheaper on price too:) Our air condition worked well in both summer...

there are many motels on Riccarton Road. 298 Westfield holds its own in terms of room comfort, but is let down very badly with the wi-fi. You can ask for vouchers, of 200 MB, advertised by the Zenbu company as 'easy, cheap, reliable'', and preferable to timed connections. It totally isn't. Any idea how long 200 MB gets you? 7...
