Well set up comfortable 1 B/R apartment with good facilities, plenty of eating places including The Lone Star close by as well as a shopping mall in close walking distance, and a bus stop at the front door, Another bonus is the free Airport Shuttle.

This motel is very good value for a well setup room and facilities. It is very clean with a very comply bed. Not far from a great restaurant. A little kitchen setup with microwave a d a great little bathroom. Handy to stay to get to the airport today.

Clean, cosy, quiet and comfortable rooms with helpful and friendly staff. Was very warm on a chilly winters night with a great location too. We had a group of 3 of us staying on the same night and we were all very impressed. Bathroom was very pleasant too, clean with a great shower.

Quiet unit at back of motel. Poorly lit inside- light bulbs blown in living area didn't help. Hair in the bed!!!! Bed spread ripped Breakfast fruit was pre- packaged fruit in jelly not fruit in juice.

There are so many motels on the Riccarton Road. You can go to Google map and compare the price and offer for each. The reception is a Malaysian and he is nice and offer Drop off service to the airport. The hotel room is with mechanical smell(after cleaning) but in general way, it is ok. There is Countdown(Supermarket) near this...

Renovated bathroom really clean and new with great shower stream. Electric blanket. Nothing is within walking distance but with a car you can drive a couple km down the road and there is heaps of restaurants etc. Didn't like the duvet cover on the bed, don't like them on any bed as they are disgusting and aren't washed.

The hotel is located a little away from the CBD. Facilities provided are average. Staff helpful. Problem with the room lock. Lighting in the room was very low. Food joints located within walking distance.

The man running the motel was very nice, however the rooms are showing wear and tear - light bulbs missing, tears in the the couch, shower doors don't close so water gets all over the floor, etc. Also the room smelled of cigarette smoke. Good location with a market and restaurants nearby.

We stopped here after a long day of driving, just basically passing through Christchurch on the way to our next destination. Staff were friendly & the room was clean. The Wifi worked as advertised, and this motel actually had air-conditioning!!! A pleasant stay for us, would recommend.

Very lovely motel in the qieut neighborhood. They picked us up at the airport and next day they gave us a ride to car rental! The place is very clean, with comfortable furniture, fully equipped kitchen and nice bathroom.
