Tower Junction Motor Lodge is 700 meters from the railway station (8 minutes walk) but quite far outside Christchurch city centre, about 3 kilometres. Friendly and helpful staff. Arranged transportation to the railway station for free. Room was clean, comfortable and quiet.

Thanks for your review and for taking the time to write one. Glad you enjoyed your stay and it was a pleasure meeting you. Hope you enjoyed your New Zealand holiday. Although we are a reasonable way from the city centre there is plenty of public transport available. We are very close to one of the largest shopping malls in Christchurch and restaurants too.

Taxi will cost between $30-45 but there are plenty of shuttle services, try AirNZ taxis website to get started. Need to leave about 1.5-2 hours before that depending on who you use. Taxi would be quickest. you should be fine with luggage.
