Tower Junction Motor Lodge
Ranked #21 of 146 Hotels in Christchurch
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 27 March 2014

The Tower Junction Lodge is totally neat and clean. We had a kitchenette and it was well stocked. The owner was nice also. We stayed here two nights because we arrived by train from Picton and were taking the TranzAlpine to Greymouth and return. The motel is actually in Addington, about 3km west of the city center. It is about a ten minute walk from the Railway station. There is a very good restaurant/pub called Speights Ale House about midway between the motel and the rail station. Near the pub is also Anna's Cafe where we had breakfast. There is a large Chinese restaurant about five minutes walk west on Blenheim Road. Between the motel and the city center there is a huge park and botanic garden. If your are without a car and don't like to walk or can't this may not be the best location. It is on a main bus route but we didn't use it and I don't know how good it is.

Stayed at this lodge cos it's near to the crusaders stadium, room, toilet is neat and clean. Quiet at night. Very close to Westfield mall for groceries and within walking distance to super rugby stadium. Will stay here again next time.

A great place to stay! We had been camping for almost 3 weeks so we welcomed a clean bathroom and bed! It is relativly close to the bus stop to take you downtown and the staff are very helpful and accommodating. The only down side to the room our friends had was the shower. It is an 'all in one' bathroom so when they had their shower, the entire bathroom was flooded. However, that was the only downside to this place. Would definitely recommend staying here!

I know Christchurch is probably expensive, but I expected a slightly bigger room for $125. There was barely enough room to move: you stood up from sitting on the double bed (had to share a double for two single women - not ideal) and you were basically standing at the "kitchen" counter. However, it was only a one-night stopping point on our tour of the South Island, so it wasn't a huge problem.

We stayed here twice during our tour around South Island. Tower Lodge is conveniently located on Blenheim Road, about 4km from the city centre, within walking distance (5 mins) to buses (No 40) at Tower Junction or (No 5) in Clarendon Road and 8km from the airport. It is also possible to drive to town, park in Hagley Park (Limit 3 hours) and walk into the city. The rooms were well fitted out and the self catering facilities adequate. TVs come with SKY, providing some decent tv. Generous wifi. For eating out, there are options within walking distance, but most are in Riccarton, about 1km (long walk/short drive). Bed - very comfortable giving a good night's sleep every night, and bathroom ok too. Clean. Very friendly staff. Our thanks to owner Darren for his help during our stays.

Very straight forward stay. Arrived a little earlier than planned. Room ready 10am, bags stored till then. Friendly and helpful staff. Great location for train station - shuttle was also arranged without asking. Be aware location is a reasonable walk or taxi from town, thought close to Mall. Just what we needed for 1 night.
