I have travelled quiet a lot, and this was the most comfortable bed I have ever had when travelling. While clean it is very dated. The wifi was great however the parking was very limited and the location wasn't very well advertised. A bit on the expensive side for what you got.

A dated motel which is still serviceable and central. A bit tired but clean. Good off street parking. Staff are very helpful. Close to a range of restaurants. A little noisy later in the evening but not from the motel guests or rooms. Would recommend if you are going to an event or function at Addington Paceway.

Friendly place. Rooms very comfortable and family friendly. They allowed us to leave a vehicle there for 3 days while we did a train trip. Rooms have full kitchens. Our unit even had 2 TVs. We would be very happy to stay there again.

Stumbled in about 10 pm, way after office hours. Janice met us with a smile and warmed up fireplace in our apartment. Loved everything about it. Heaps of space, soft, downy robes. Only place we stayed with shelves, etc. (including Hiltons, Marriotts) for toiletries. Easy walk to Addington Co-op and Mosaic by Simo (great value, great food) and bus stop...

Staff were super friendly and we got shuttled to and from our train station - shops, restaurants and bars just a few metres up the road and the unit was very comfortable. I would highly recommend this motel and will book again for my winter trip.

We stayed in a one bedroom unit with a king size bed in the lounge and two single beds in the bedroom. The beds were very comfortable and the unit was very clean and had lots of room. The hosts were excellent and very friendly. They provided a free drop off service to the train station and even helped us...

We stayed in the one bedroom unit and it had heaps of space with all the comforts you could want. Its just a stone throw away from bars and restaurants also has free Wifi. Also close to railway station for Tranzalpine train trip and they give you a free shuttle to station. Would recommend staying here and would stay again....

The people were lovely, the room was spotless with a very comfortable bed. Rather small, would have been cramped if I was a couple. My unit looked like a sleep-out from the outside, but possibly one needs to make allowances for post earthquake Christchurch. Expensive for what it was, but very convenient for concert-going at the Horncastle arena.

Great Location, so close to all amenities, the owners are so obliging in all ways, walking distance to food outlets and restaurants, the only thing that i could fault was the shower! not enough pressure if any, but other then that , it was great for a over night stay or for a couple of days, very affordable
