Good sized clean rooms, fantastic shower. Decor a bit faded. Service was excellent and friendly, culminating with a good breakfast brought to the room. Off street parking provided and a shopping centre just down the road.

It is a OK hotel but in real need of remodeling. Staff were very friendly and helpful on things to do in the area. Have a small kitchenette which is good. They have free self parking for people with cars.

Thank you to Shirley the new owner of papanui Court motel as I stay here every week to work at northlands mall and I cannot sleep with the noise of the cars with the rooms nearest the road so she changed my room back to the ones I usually stay in away from the road so I can sleep better.... More

Not modern but Roomy. The huge lounge chairs take up a lot of the space. Could be much better organised inside. Good position near papanui shopping centre. Not much room between car spaces for SUV. Quiet in back section.

This motel offers all the usual amenities and is close to Northlands Mall. However, despite the friendly welcome, we weren't especially impressed to get our milk, not in a sealed bottle or carton, but in a jug covered in cling film. The bedroom heater did not work, it was a bitterly cold night, and there were no extra blankets provided.... More

This motel offers very clean comfortable accommodation which is in close proximity to Northlands Shopping Mall and the Papanui shopping area. It is also close for travelling to Eastern Christchurch suburbs. We found it was an easy road trip from the airport and also into the Christchurch Central area although we were travelling at off peak times. Our motel room... More
