Very happy with the standard of maintenance at this property. 12 months after our last stay it still has an as-new feel. Right next to the casino, plenty of cafe and restaurant options in easy walking distance. An excellent motel in every respect.

The studio room is a little small for storage for 2 travellers.
The owners are very nice, the location was close to Victoria ave, and Casino.
The place is clean and sturdy which is important in Christchurch.
There is construction in the area, so was a little noisy later in the morning

Room Tip: All are good, no issues at all

We stayed at this motel for three nights and could not have been happier with our visit. The suite was modern and well laid out with stylish decor. The location is perfect with only a short walk to the central city and plenty of cafes and bars. Carol and Roy were extremely hospitable and helpful.

Room Tip: There is a penthouse available that is worth the extra money.

Have just returned from 3 nights at focus and couldn't have been happier with our stay. Carol and Roy go above and beyond for their guests. Was good location near several great restaurants and bars. Will definitely return when next in Christchurch.

We stayed here for 1 night during the Easter holidays in a 2 bedroom apartment. What good facilities for the price; it had everything we needed and reception service was excellent - Carol had made up the portacot for us which was a godsend as we arrived late with our very tired 3 month old baby to put to bed. The beds are comfortable, bathroom clean and well equipped with toiletries and the kitchen was well stocked in terms of crockery etc. We didn't spend much time in Christchurch as we were travelling through but if we return I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

What a great place. We were in a one bedroom apartment (room11) and it had everything we required. Spacious, clean, bright and comfortable. Reception was wonderful with Carol being so helpful. We didn't have a car so Carol advised us how to get around on foot and where to go for basic food shopping etc. Kitchen facilities were good and well stocked for cutlery and crockery.The location is excellent. We had been to Christchurch a couple of times before and we really wanted to be able to walk around the central city this time. The location of the Focus Motel was perfect for us.
