I rarely leave reviews, but I travel regularly within NZ on business and have been consistently impressed with Roma on Riccarton. Of all the motels I have stayed in, Roma on Riccarton would have to be the quietest, warmest, best furnished and I note the units now have new heat pumps/aircon. Each unit I have stayed in has been exceptionally... More

Although located on busy Riccarton Rd this motel was quiet. A must for us because we live in a rural are and are not used to road noise. Very clean, within walking distance to Riccarton Mall and plenty of eateries. Also within walking distance to Christchurch Railway station.

Stayed here a while ago and came back a year later. Accomodation is excellent, clean, comfortable, well appointed, centrally located. I couldn't remember why I stopped staying until my recent trip.

Great location, really clean and had everything that you could wish for in the unit. Lovely and warm and quiet, even though we were close to a busy road. Great café and bar across the road and within walking distance to town, Hagley Park and the AMI stadium so its location ticked all the boxes for us.

At $119 for a room for 2 adults and one child, this was very good indeed. Fast and unlimited internet included, which is something you don't get at many other motels/hotels. An excellent location, within walking distance of Riccaron Mall, Hagley Park, Pak n Save and numerous places for getting something to eat.
