“Great stay!”
Reviewed 20 April 2013

Fantastic place to stay with very helpful owners. The rooms were very modern, spacious, clean and tidy with full kitchen facilities.
We chose it for proximity to station and on our return night a couple of days later for easy route to airport. The station is walkable along shortcut we found through retail park. Coffee shop in park open early enough for breakfast even if getting Tranzalpine express.
Great restaurant, Speights, also within walking distance.
We changed our itinerary a couple of months before the stay and the owner was more than happy to change the dates we stayed at no extra cost.
Owner was very helpful in giving us directions and discount voucher for Antarctic Centre.
Would highly recommend!

This Motel is new or newly renovated, in a nice location close to shopping malls and the kiwirail station for Coastal Pacific or Trans Alpine. The lady owning the place offered to drive us to the station and in general the people there were very friendly and ready to help us. The only minus is the lack of WiFi internet. We stayed for one night when arrived with Coastal Pacific and then depart with Trans Alpine the next day.

My wife and I chose Christchurch for the destination of our trip. This place gave us a last night sleep in New Zealand, comfortable and warm, especially the bed. The owner and all the staff were so friendly and warm. This place gave us a perfect end for our beautiful journey.

We booked here for the location... Taking 7am train. Station is a couple of minutes away.
We got here early and were given our room as soon as it was clean... Around noon.
Rooms are v clean, with well equipped kitchenette.

We spent our 2nd night in New Zealand at this motel. We chose it because of it's proximity to the railway station. If you have train rides in your itinerary, I would highly recommend this place. Host, Ivana is a lovely lady. Upon arrival, we told her that we had a morning train to catch and she immediately arranged for a free shuttle for us to the station in the morning! Our room was clean, decor is modern and heaters (very impt!) were in the right places! I would definitely come back again!

Three of us stayed 5 nights over Easter in a 2BR apartment. The property is well-located (particularly for our purposes), and was clean and comfortable. Despite being in the front room by a main road, little traffic noise was heard. Bathroom is a decent size, well equipped and modern., in fact all rooms and the kitchenette (2 gas hobs, microwave, pots and pans, crockery and cutlery etc.) were well sized.

The property was completely renovated a few years ago, but the standout is the manager Ivana. We are not demanding guests, but I arrived this trip having left my iphone charger at home. I mentioned it to Ivana and voila!, one iphone charger for me to use for the duration of the stay.

On our previous stay a few years ago we flew into CHC late and arrived at the property towards midnight. None of this 'key under the mat' business, Ivana was waiting up to check us in.

A couple of points which may be negatives for some people but did not bother us).

1) We were in the room for the first two day when it was serviced and the sheets were not changed (not in there the other days so unsure about them). Not unusual for motels in NZ and was not a concern to us for the short stay we had, but if it is to you, check before you book.

2) It appears only wired internet is available which again was not an issue to us, but may bother ipad users. Again, check directly before you book.

I would happily stay here again, and my ratings are in the context of it being a motel.

We stayed 2 nights organised, attending the Glenn Frey concert only a short 10 minute walk to the CBS Canterbury Arena.
The accommodation was excellent, roomy, quiet and extremely comfortable. Fully self contained and close to the city centre. The owners were extremely obliging and I would stay there again.
Overall excellent value for money.
