Reviewed 15 June 2014

We chose this Lodge for its proximity from the Railway Station for Tranz Alpine Train.just a 10 minute walk.!
Found rooms clean & neat with all the facilities.Equipement including heater were quite new. TV with one of the maximum international channels. Got free WIFI for an hour even though it was not originally promised .
But the most amazing part was the warm & friendly staff @ the check in counter .
Have to make special mention of Ms . Anna , she is such a wonderful person who goes out of her way to service & help the guests. My family was really touched by her attitude.

We stayed here for one night. The room was clean and inexpensive. The room was small, but that was exactly what we booked. We walked to Hagley Park and the city center, which took about an hour. We walked to the Tranzalpine train station the following morning, which took about 10 minutes. We chose this hotel because the hotel was near the train station.

Other than its close proximity to the Christchurch Train Station, there was nothing particular satisfactory about this hotel. In most respects, the hotel was lacking for a number of reasons including limited and tight parking; no on-site staff presence except at check in; sliding glass doors were entrance to room, which reduced privacy and security; bathroom sink spouted like a geyser; TV remote battery was low; sheets on bed were old and did not seem clean; and WiFi was an additional charge. In addition, the closest restaurants or stores were a 10-minute walk away and the Christchurch city center was a 30-minute walk away. A better choice would be stay at one of the many motels on nearby Riccarton Avenue, which also included many eating choices and stores.

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.

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!
