Our family of four stayed in the 2-bedroom apt for just one night enroute to Christchurch. Geraldine is only 1hr 45mins away from Christchurch and 1hr from Lake Tekapo, so it's a good stopover. Motel is within easy walking distance into town and the owner was very warm and friendly Was pleasantly surprised with how modern and large the apartment...

We were pleasantly surprised at how neat and tidy the rooms were, they literally looked untouched! The staff went out of their way to help us and made sure that we knew where to go in the local area. The bed was comfortable and it was exceptional value for money. We were just so impressed with this accommodation and we...

We found the motel adequate but not exceptional. We had the room adjacent to the road (15) which is a bit gloomy internally, but ok when overnighting. The traffic is noisy and clearly audible when it's running, fortunately there was little traffic after about 11pm so it didn't really bother us. The rooms are spacious if a little dated, but...

This lodging choice worked out great for us. The young owner/manager was so helpful and polite. We were just a few short blocks from a great restaurant, which he recommended. I'll try to remember the restaurant name and update this review! Be sure to ask about Peter's observatory, which is close to the hotel. I wish we had visited Peter!!...

Small motel right on the main road - maybe 20 rooms total. Very clean inside, large bathroom and a nice couch / sitting area. The parking lot is small and a little tight, but you do get to park right in front of your room. Several places to eat and a grocery store are a 3 minute walk away.

Not much to do in Geraldine but if you are passing through on route to Queenstown this would be the place to stay. Warm, comfortable and clean with big bed and huge bathroom. All the rooms open onto the parking area, i.e. its like a "motel" configuration with all the rooms at ground level and you park outside your door....

We expected to overnight in Timaru, but on arrival in the early afternoon found it to be too big and full on for us, and not much going for it, and we were looking for a small quiet place, so we went north , and followed our nose, and ended up in Geraldine. Drove thru town and spotted this motel...

Modern, comfortable, warm, quiet, easy walking distance from the town. What more can one ask? Trip advisor says this is too short and I must add at least 107 characters. OK. Modern, comfortable, warm, quiet, easy walking distance from the town. What more can one ask?

We stayed here last week for 3 nights and it was wonderful. New owners are very welcoming and friendly and we really felt like it was our second home. Our room was spacious, very clean and had a full kitchen. The location was fantastic and very central. It is close to restaurants in town and the Talbot forest parks. We...
