Our stay in Christchurch was something of a last minute plan, and with the problems stemming with the earthquake, we were a little uncertain as to where to stay. We were touring New Zealand by bus, so we wanted someplace close to the bus stop because we didn’t want to cover great distances by foot with our luggage. The Courtesy Court Motel fit the bill as it was only a couple of blocks from the Intercity Bus Stop, which is currently located on Bealey Street. Christchurch had just experienced a rather significant snow storm a day or two before our arrival, so it was doubly well that we chose a motel close to the bus stop. The walkways were all still very icy and hard to manage.
The motel’s rooms are split between three buildings and are both ground level and one flight up. There are no lifts, at least not in the building we were in, so be prepared to climb steps (not a problem for us). We had a king bed room with amply supplied kitchenette. The bed was comfortable, and the room was maintained in a very clean condition. We found a few lights not working in the room when we arrived, and we told reception about them the next morning. One was fixed quickly, but the other would require an electrician, so it could not be repaired in the short time that we were there. This was not a huge problem for us, so we weren’t perturbed by it.
We used the Guest Laundry facility where we found that the washing machine was free to use, but there was a charge for use of the dryer. This also did not present a problem; it was pleasant to be able to use the washer as part of our room charge. Our stay was short, but we felt we got good value for the bargain.
The Internet service was free and unlimited.
