“Guaranteed cleanliness and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 March 2014

I have returned to Arthur's Court Motor Lodge because it is such a good place to stay in Christchurch.

The owner lives on the premises and is so flexible - he let us check in early after an overnight flight. The rooms are impeccable and décor is uncluttered, modern and well thought out.

I am particular about clean bathrooms, and these were spotless. The second stay was in the room with a spa and it was spotless. At another motel with spa I once experienced dirty water running through the spa holes, whereas at Arthur's Court I had no hesitation putting my baby in the spa here - it felt totally new.

I was quite a demanding guest (or so I felt) with questions and needs for my baby, and the owner was nothing but willing to help. We had to use the 24 medical centre about a minute away by car for our baby, in the wee hours of the morning, and again the location of this motel was perfect for medical help, food shopping and getting into town.

You will find that a lot of other accommodation is in a belt that looks close to town, but isn't due to traffic flow and one way streets around the park. Travelling from Arthur's Court to town or shops/medical centre flows well and it seems we got to town within minutes.

We will stay there each time we visit Christchurch for sure.

Room Tip: All rooms are great. There isn't much in the yard so this this place is perfect for getting a re...

A very nice quiet place located not too far away from town. The apartment itself is nicely furnished too. The manager of the lodge is very friendly and helpful! We were trying to rent a car and the manager patiently called up around 5 companies and manage to find one for us. (Peak period in Feb)

This property was really excellent, situated fairly close to the city centre but in a quiet location. All facilities were excellent, the room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The guy on reception was exceptionally helpful, pleasant and knowledgeable. We'd definitely stay there again.

Arthur's Court is on a main road yet there was no street noise to speak of. The rooms have been renovated, modern and very clean. We stayed in a two bedder and the beds were very comforable. At the end of our trip we stayed right in Christchurch but we would have been better staying out of town a little back at Arthurs Court.

We stayed in a twin bed room for our first night in New Zealand in mid January and couldn't have made a better choice. The reception let us check in early, organised the shuttle to collect us from the airport and pick up to take us to the train station the next morning. The chap was most helpful, explaining the best shops and directions into the City (an easy 15min walk). The room was spacious, modern with stylish décor and spotlessly clean. Beds and linen were luxurious and very comfortable. Great bathroom with plenty of hot water and towels. Glossy kitchen that we didn't need to use but grateful for the supply of fresh milk, tea and coffee. Big T.V on the wall that we didn't have time to watch. Good local shops and restaurants. Nothing to fault this motel and we were very impressed with the standard just wished we had more time to enjoy it.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and appreciate the free wifi and free laundry services. The room was very clean and beds were comfortable. Glad that we have booked Arthurs for another 2 nights towards the end of our holidays.

We stayed in a two bedroom, two bathroom family apartment at the beginning of December 2013. We found picking accommodation in Christchurch difficult and in the end selected this motel on the basis of the trip advisor comments and the information on their website.

The apartment was large and modern with free wifi and parking conveniently at the front of the apartment. The apartment was clean but perhaps not as clean as we had expected given the ratings and statements made on the website.

The kitchen cupboard doors were smeared and some of the cutlery and crockery wasn’t spotless. The dishcloth provided was terrible and we actually bought our own to use. There were also a number of lights which didn’t work.

That said, it was still a really good place to stay and the onsite laundry and outdoor drying lines were also very handy.

The beds were comfortable and the bathrooms were spacious. We also found the apartment to be quiet and conveniently located near a supermarket.

Not sure that we would stay again. There were a lot of other motels in the area which may have offered better value for money.
