We stayed here two nights; both before and after our flights. It was an easy drive to/from the airport and the staff were very accommodating considering we didn't arrive until nearly 1am the first night. They ensured the room was ready and open so we just had to get there and fall asleep. As we were travelling with an infant they also provided a cot at no extra charge which was great.

The room itself was well furnished and nicely decorated. The mini kitchenette was useful and the bathroom was lovely and big. Nice toiletries were provided. Location wise it is very convenient and an easy drive to the main attractions in Christchurch. There is a big Westfield's shopping centre just nearby and within easy walking distance. As it's on a main road there were also buses available to get into the city centre and botanical gardens. Wifi is free which seems a novelty in many NZ motels.

We would definitely stay here again.

Was here for 4 nights for BeerFest weekend. Location is very central, less than 3min walk to Ricc Mall, and half an hour walk to Hagley Park.

Accommodation was awesome, no interruptions with cleaning which we've experienced with other motels/hotels, all done once we'd left the unit. Loved the free wifi. Very modern interior/furnishings. Friendly staff and managed to snag a good weekend weather wise! Great to see the units still hold up solidly in quakes- had a 4.2 during our stay, first one felt in a wee while!

Room Tip: Units towards the back would be quieter- heard the odd truck rumble past on Riccarton Road

Clean and great accommodation. Cheaper than many others we looked at.
We stayed in an executive 2 bedroom apartment and it was very spacious for our family(with 2 older kids). It was as per their description: Free Wifi Internet. Nice furnishings, superior accommodation. Queen bed in main bedroom, two singles in second bedroom. 3 LCD flat screen TV's with Sky Digital. Separate lounge room. Shower over spa bath. Kitchenette with microwave, jug, toaster, 2 hot plates. Laundry facilities 100 metres from Westfield Mall. Owner was very friendly and very helpful. On a main road so we walked to the city, but there were many buses going up and down the street so would be easy to catch one in and out of the city if preferred. Doona was super cozy.

Room Tip: I wrote poor for childrens activities, but I am not sure what they had avalable. There were many activites close by.

This was our first accommodation in NZ and it was excellent on most counts. We had booked(directly on their website) an executive 2 bedroom apartment and it was very spacious for our family(with 2 older kids). It was exactly like their description says:
" ***Free Wifi Internet*** Luxurious furnishings, superior accommodation. King bed in main bedroom, two singles in second bedroom. 3 LCD flat screen TV's with Sky Digital. Separate lounge room with double therapeutic spa bath in bathroom. Shower over bath. Kitchen with microwave, jug, toaster, bar fridge and hot plates. Washer/dryer machine. 100 metres from Westfield Mall."
May be because I booked very late, it was very expensive. The only other drawback is the road noise though we all slept well.

Arrived in the pouring rain (Cyclone Luisi supposedly heading our way!) and were greeted by a lovely young lady at reception. She explained that she was looking after the motel for the owner, and was just so helpful and pleasant to deal with. Rooms are beautifully finished and have everything that you could possibly want or need. We ended up staying two nights instead of the originally planned one, and we definitely stay there again. Love the red decor touches in the rooms - just stunning and reasonably priced.
