“Very happy. Would go back”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 September 2012

There are a few reviews about the road noise. This we didn't hear much of. You do get the emergency vehicles every now and again, but it wasn't enough to wake me up. The big windows have 2 sets of window coverings to protect your privacy. We stayed in a deluxed spa suite and were not disappointed. The room was immaculate and featured a double spa, king bed and kitchen. The place looked quite new and the hosts very friendly and helpful. Christchurch City is pretty much a no go, but they are starting to open it up. There are a number of small shops opening up in containers and temporary buildings. Support the locals and visit. There are a number of restaurants in walking distance. We got takeaway from the Chinese place at Carton Court. Was good and pretty much normally priced.

Room Tip: Go the deluxe spa room. We were upstairs and was very comfortable

With all the 'big name' hotels that I prefer closed down after the earthquake I was a bit hesistant to stay in a motor lodge, I shouldn't have been. This place was lovely - well appointed kitchen and super comfy beds. Bathrooms were a little on the small side, but perfectly adequate.

The best part of this place though is the service, they were very very lovely and able to help with everything.

This hotel offers everything you need. Of course the rooms are clean. We had a bigger room (called De Luxe Suite) with laundry facilities. But the owner took over the washing since she has a bigger machine. There is no breakfast restaurant but the owners bring a cooked breakfast to your room. Another solution is to go to a nearby place but after comparing prices and quality you will prefer to stay in your room. You need help to get around in Christchurch? Salerno knows everything. The room had a microwave kitchen. Everything (crockery, cutlery ... ) was there, even a dishwasher. This place can be recommended. And as you can guess: the owners are very friendly and offer excellent service. Travelling in NZ is not that cheap and the place seems rather up-market priced. But compared to what it offers, it is worth the money.

To be fair, since the big one Chchurch really has quite a limited set of attractions, but the motel, although very clean, trendy, fantastic bathroom and a parking space, is not close to a decent choice of restaurants nor supermarket, and is a bit of a walk from the center.

We were there on May 8, on our away to Queenstown and back again on May 15 & 16. The motel is well kept, clean and nice managed by a friendly lovely couple Pauline & Brandon. Pauline organized our taxi for the airport. Best was, she pre heated our room before we arrived on may 15 evening. Asked them to recommend a place for a good dinner and Brandon dropped us there which was just down the road. Thanks Pauline & Brandon as we didn't get to see you before we left.
