Based on a relatives feedback we booked a 2 bedroom apartment. First the positive, its close to town and has some nice restaurants close by. The TV is huge, not sure why it's so big but I suppose that's what some people like. The pool is good, kids enjoyed it and the staff were friendly and helpful. On the downside,...

Our last night in NZ. Interesting history, read the owners book whilst I was here. The bar was interesting with all the family paraphernalia. Gordon Ramsay would have a field day here. The rooms ( we had a two bedroom for the 5 of us) was absolutely fine. Loads of (free) movies etc on the TV. Very well positioned.Quick walk...

I spent two nights at the Pavillions in between moving houses. Firstly it is in a brilliant location super handy to everywhere and right on the edge of the CBD. Being a local I knew most of the restaurants and eateries around but I decided to opt for the "Breakfast included" option on my stay but more about that later....

The motel is in a perfect location not far from the airport and central Christchurch. You could walk into Christchurch but we chose to drive. The pool is small but the kids loved it particulary as its right...

Hi Sam, thank you for taking time to post a review. We are glad you enjoyed the comfort and spaciousness of our rooms as well as the nice comfy beds.

Stayed here overnight before our early flight home, it was only about 15mins from the international airport (at 3:40am). Comfy clean beds, warm room, hot shower. We stayed in two triple rooms on the ground floor. The only complaint was the haphazard free parking. Without lines all the patrons were parking in many different angles. We had a large bus...

Good motel in good location, pleasant staff. On site bar used by locals, short walking distance to Central Christchurch, would definitely stay again if in the area . Self catering accommodation which included a no site laundry which was very useful.

Good base to explore Cristchurch from, room clean and well appointed. Very helpful staff, and restaurant worth a visit with a good range of food. Only slight negative - pool small and not very private.

Thank you for your feedback on your stay. By the sounds of your review you stayed in a Hotel Studio and perhaps in future you may like to try an Executive room.
