Aalton Motel
Ranked #57 of 146 Hotels in Christchurch
Reviewed 3 December 2015 via mobile

We very much enjoyed our stay here. Well located with a nice walk through the gardens to the CBD. The room was well appointed with everything we needed and lots of little touches. Very clean. We would stay here again.

Stayed: November 2015, travelled as a couple

This is the best motel that I have ever lived. Location, equipment and staff are all outstanding. The staff helped me to book a taxi at 4 am and told me that the price was $34. I forgot to ask if it is a fixed price. When the taxi arrived, the driver used the meter and charged me $43 instead.

When it comes to wanting that familiar feeling of being totally at ease and of being at home - then Aalton Motel is for you . We stay here every year at approximately the same time and have always been treated like VIP, Aalton is very well located in riccarton, great value for money and super comfortable. One thing that always makes us smile is seeing the constant improvements going on from year to year making our stay always better than the last one - I would not look for accommodation anywhere else in Christchurch with out looking at Aalton first. Look forward to being back next year.

Stayed: October 2015

We were one family but in two groups, were very late in booking in but could not be looked after any better..During the four days stay,we had to be shifted three times but this was done for us and there was no inconvenience whatsoever.Nothing was too much trouble for our hosts.Certainly,it wasn't the very best in accommodation in which we have stayed but all the units were very clean and tidy and none of us had any complaints.We were lacking for nothing. Was great and we would recommend this motel..

Room Tip: No problems anywhere

This is a sleepy little motel with just a few rooms...and lot of TripAdvisor certificates plastered on the wall of the shoe-box reception area. Fair enough, with all those certificates, it should be good. Not really. The firniture and bathroom is a bit tired, there could not be a smaller bar of soap in all of New Zealand. There is basically no internet connection; they will tell you there is, but the redirection doesn't work...so, you can't actually get connected. The heater is a bit fidly, and small. The good news is that it is not a far walk from the Running Bull pub / restaurant
