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.

Just the one night, but nice and easy / pleasant reception- free wifi handy. 18 year old son shared with us, sleeping on sofa in front room - he is 6ft but had an okay night - esp with the wifi :) tv in lounge and our room created privacy as well. Parking can be a bit tight if place...

Arrived in Christchurch and this was the first hotel we stayed. Located near the airport and near Riccarton Mall. Owner was friendly and gave us wifi passwords for all our devices! The smaller room with 2 single beds was on the ground floor. Upper mezzanine level has the double bed and a separate bathroom! You can't imagine how important and...

Good points: Clean, near bus stops (direct bus to city centre, which takes ~ 10 min), near Riccarton mall (5 min bus). Bonus points: Lovely hosts, free shuttle to and from airport. Improvements required: - Lighting, especially lighting in bathroom (the bathroom in one-bedroom unit has only 1 light bulb right at one side, hence, the rest of the bathroom...

I surely recommend 315 Motel Riccarton to my fellow travelers. It was very clean and the amenities are just as described. The person at the front desk was kind and helpful. Given the price point, my expectations were well exceeded- it is a great value!

Stayed here for a week, and found the place very good for a hotel, helpful and friendly staff and a decent enough location. It's a new motel so nothing felt particularly worn. The free airport pick up and drip off was very useful.

We had a good stay at the modern motel and Carol is really good to deal with. Full facilities and a bit of space handy for a family stay. Airport pickup and drop off is good and the airport is less than 10 minutes away. There is a supermarket not too far away within walking distance.

An absolutely fantastic motel located on in a fantastic location. The rooms were just the right size and very tastefully done. The kitchenette was fully equipped and cleaned everyday. The receptionist George was very helpful in guiding us through the attractions and booking a cab for us before we could pickup our rental car. He even dropped us at the...
