Our room was spacious, had nice cooking and bathroom facilities, was very quiet, and the staff were very helpful to us. The motel is pretty new, so that explains how sparkling everything appeared. Very very clean!!

We originally booked for one night as we had a wedding to attend in nearby Tai Tapu, however our plans had to change after the Seddon earthquake and we needed to change our booking. This was not a problem, the owner happily accommodated our request and on arrival we were greeted with a very friendly and efficient lady who was...

Stayed in Lincoln again for a work visit, and the Lincoln Motel is still my go to venue for accommodation. Management is very friendly and engaging, and rooms are clean, quiet and very comfortable. I will continue to use the Lincoln Motel into the future.

Located about 25 minutes from Christchurch this well appointed, family friendly property as a good choice. Ample parking and close to the University, restaurants, and a grocery store. Room prices can vary greatly depending on availability, so be sure to consider whether this property is good value for the time of your stay.

Room was clean, beds were comfortable. Bath was spacious and clean. Plenty of restaurants nearby. Staff was friendly. Drain in bath smelled when window was shut, but easily solvable in summer by leaving window open (probably won't work in winter).

Thanks for posting your review Dan, I see you mention the drain in the bathroom, it shouldn't smell, shame you didn't tell me while you were here I could've done something about it, I will look into and get the problem sorted.

Five of us arrived on Friday to a wonderfully clean two bedroomed unit. The host was extremely friendly and everything was in place. The beds were comfortable and warm, even the sofa bed in the lounge. There is plenty of parking available near the rooms. Each day, the friendly staff arrive to clean, make beds and they even emptied the...
