We had a good over night stay in a two bedroom cabin. Everything we needed was there - bedding, kitchen supplies and ensuite. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. It was also a perfect location for the International Antarctic Center. Good price too.

We contacted this property by phone late in the afternoon as we unexpectedly required accommodation. Initially we were advise that they were booked up but the lady in reception went to the trouble of juggling bookings around and was able to free up one night only which suited us fine. A short while later we received friendly greeting on arrival...

My wife & I had an overnight stay to break up our road trip from Picton to Timaru. We chose a motel room which we found was roomy,comfortable & clean.

Thank you for your feedback. We note your comments about the size of the showers. These are older units and the shower cubicles are not as spacious as modern units. If you remind us next time you stay, we can accommodate you in a unit with larger shower units.

I and my family were there in the beginning of May 2015. The weather was quite cold but this motel had nice weather at that moment. The location was not that far from the airport and supermarket.

We spent two nights in a self contained cabin with good kitchen facilities. The location was perfect for us, not wanting to be in the CBD at Christchurch, but close to the main roads in and out of the city. As we rented a car, this place suited our circumstances. I would recommend a visit.
