Reviewed 19 January 2010

We stayed 4 nights at this lovely motel. Although we only booked a few weeks before and had particular requirements (5 adults for 2 nights and just 2 for the other 2 nights we were accommodated in a large sparkling clean unit for the whole period.

Great service which exceeded our expectations.

It was a true pleaser after two years away from New Zealand to be greeted at Alcala Motor Lodge by Kathy and Grant, two down to earth Kiwis who truly look after there guests.
The Alcala Motor Lodge is clean tidy and well set up for all the family including the kids, it is close to the center of town including the arts centre, square and casino. I would have absolutely no hesitation in reccomending this Motor Lodge too one and all.

I have just stayed at this hotel for the third time and this was the second time my parents were with me.
The level of service is fantastic, an example is that my mother had problems getting into the bath. Grant manufactured a solid step to make this easier within half an hour of our request.
They also loaned me two bags to keep food cool while we spent two weeks visiting family in another town.
The rooms are cleaned daily, the motel is within walking distance of the city centre, or just walk 100M to get a bus and they have rolled out free wifi to residents.
All in all, it is a nice place to stay as you feel close to the owners (yes, they are the owners, not just managers)

After staying at Alcala Motor Lodge this last week, we were very impressed with the standard of the Unit we occupied ( number 6), and the friendly and very helpful owners. The unit was exceptionaly well furnished, clean and well laid out. We would have absolutely no hesitation in reccomending this Motor Lodge to any one who asks.

Stay here if you demand clean rooms and helpful staff.
This motel is owned by a nice couple who answered all my questions about the local area and my room as well as the check in lobby had plenty of information of what to do in New Zealand, with coupons for discounts off local attractions in Christchurch.

I would stay here again, just because I know the owners have a vested interest in their guests (they own the motel so they make sure you are comfortable).

Very clean, comfortable Motel on Sherbourne Street, which is about 5 mins from the City centre.
Arrived quite late at night and the kids were tired, but we all felt like coming home at the warm welcome Kathy and Grant gave us. We had a two bedroom unit, which was made up nicely for the kids.
The owners provided all the information we needed to get around Christchurch.
Many thanks, we will stay again!
