Arrived in Christchurch at 1am - quick taxi ride to motel - $27 taxi fare. Key for motel room was easily accessed via a key box (code for box was sent to us via email earlier in the day). We were in room 18 and upstairs room. Everything was clean, tidy and modern. The room had a kitchenette as an...

The service was very good, we received all the information we needed at check-in. The location was also ideal, just a few km from the airport, down a single straight road. The rooms were nice and clean.

This motel was easy to find after a hectic day of driving. Appreciated having proper milk in the fridge and the wi-fi was excellent. The recommended Thai takeaway that was delivered meant a relaxing evening for us.

I would recommend this as a very classic style motel. My room was clean and bed and pillows very comfortable. It had basic amenities and the reception staff were very pleasant and helpful. I was traveling for business and leaving at the airport early so it was a great location for me.

This is a typical kiwi motel on a main road and designed for one night stays. Room was fairly small but clean with basic requirement met. The room was not air conditioned and the fern North Wester meant it was too windy to have the main window open, but there was a skylight in the bathroom. No real traffic noise...

Good, cheap and clean hotel. Perfect if you need to get to the airport early in the morning since they offer airport transportation. But if it's rather far from the city centre and a bit complicated to get to the city if you don't have a car (you have to take two buses to get to the city centre and...

Thankyou for your review. We are an airport motel, but also on the main bus route for easy access to all other city directions. The bus leaves for the inner city approximately every 20-30minutes and picks up and drops off from directly outside our motel.

Arrived 10.30 at night, given easy instruction to find key for room. Lovely clean and tidy room very up to date, with milk in fridge ;-). Even though close to road there was little noise which was great as we had early flight out next day. Wonderful to deal with and recommend as close to airport.

The communication by the motel was pretty good...very clear instructions on how to get our keys as we arrived after the reception closed (9pm on the dot - we were there at 9.02pm). The motel is not far from the airport. The bedsheets were very filty as there were white stains all over and there is no air condition in...

Thankyou for your review. Our front office staff work from 7am-9pm, so yes the doors are locked for their safety at 9pm - we are sorry we just missed you, but as you mentioned you had received clear instructions of how to access your key. In regards to the bed cover that was not clean - thank-you for bringing this...
