Difficult to understand person on phone when booking, hard to repeat over phone. In morning the cleaner came into our unit at 9.00 claiming she thought we had left, no knocking etc just barging in. Very unprofessional. I would not stay here again or recommend to anyone.

The family room there might have been the first place we stayed at that was actually bigger than our house. The quiet surrounds were nice and yet we were close to town. Comfortable place that was a good base for Christchurch.

Due to the earthquake we were unable to proceed with our train trip planned holiday.I rang the motel and was spoken to by someone I could barley understand who repeated everything I said and just said no refund.

I spend 2-3 days a year here, due to a work course nearby. The staff is friendly and polite, no issues here. This time around the room was disappointing. The mattress on my bed might have been bought from the Salvation Army, as I sank over 5 inches on those holes. Actually, you can visually check that upon arrival... Then,...

This motel is clean and tidy. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Stayed one night in this motel.

We were placed in this motel one day prior to arrival when original motel had painting issues. Room clean and comfortable and we were given a free ride to railway station for trip on the transalpine train. 7:45 start. Excellent , friendly service. Reasonable price.

given they are still in a re-build mode, this motel was the best I could find. great for business or a single night stay. not for families, and if you are looking to sleep well, get the inside rooms as this is at a main intersection.
