The biggest thing that I was impressed with was the laundry facilities that are provided at no extra charge. Only one washer and dryer, but they even provide you with the washing powder. The rooms were nice and clean, and unlimited internet a bonus too. Biggest downfall was no aircon/heat pump (although there was a wall radiator). This would have... More

We stayed one night after arriving late from the airport. Motel very easy to get to from the airport [we had a car], late key service worked easily, rooms were of a very high standard, bed comfortable, everything just like it should be for a guest. We couldn't fault the place.

Great hotel, Great experience Hotel room is clean and well equipped. Bath tab is great. Love the hotel and service is great too. Location is great, not far from the airport. Courtesy pick-up at the airport saves us time for walking to the hotel.

From the moment we checked in, we couldn't fault this lovely place. Reception were incredibly helpful, organising our early morning transfer to the airport, and generally making us feel relaxed. The room was clean, comfortable and just what we needed on our last night in New Zealand.

Very well organized motel. Our room was nice with enough space, good bed, very clean, little kitchen, quick WiFi, modern style and very friendly staff. It was a nice arrival, even at midnight, we received a code to entry and this was working well. It was also very nice that we could leave our bagage on the departure day, so... More

We were on our way to Nelson and stopped here to get a good nights sleep and they did not disappoint. Free shuttle pickup from the airport and a short 10 minute drive to location. Very clean rooms with sky tv and a nice dairy and a Japanese restaurant nearby. Also had really fast wifi, which was great for us... More

Bill even offered to drive us to our rental car office the next morning. We plan to stay with them again before our flight back home. Our... More

Staff were very helpful and offered shuttle service to the airport. Room was clean,tidy & functional. There are self catering capabilities within the room which was handy. When we went to pick up our camper van from an unspecified location around the Christchurch airport, Bill was informed enough to know we would be stranding ourselves in the wrong location. He...
