Thanks for staying with us Madshus on your first night on holiday. Mmmmmm can't do much about the weather but can always find a warm welcome which makes all that crappy weather ..... vanish.

Great centrally-located motel with very welcoming hosts. Geoff went out of his way to ensure we had everything we needed and gave helpful tips on local eateries.

Room was large with well appointed kitchenette, en suite bathroom, desk & chair, free wifi, armchairs and big comfy bed. The TV had a good range of channels including sport.

Best of all they have a strong emphasis on being eco-friendly so have a recycling programme, use green light bulbs & use eco-brands for all their soaps, cleaning liquids etc.

Great location only a short walk from many of the good restaurants. The service was second to none with many suggestions to good eat locations prepared for you. The rooms were comfortable and the heating worked maybe a little too well.

Hi there nik22192 and thanks for the review. Yes, the heating does work well so its important to turn it down when retiring for the night or things can get a lil' too hot - so to speak. Other than that great to see you loved our central Christchurch accommodation options including all the great dining options in the Victoria St. preceinct which is just 5 mins walk away!

Great place to stay very close to the CBD without being right in the thick of it. Jeff and his family are very friendly and can offer great advice, and it's nice to stay somewhere and support a family business.

Strongly recommend to anyone looking for a nice, warm place to stay.

Really had a great experience here. The hosts are super friendly and I felt really well taken care of. They go the extra mile to be helpful, I am a big fan of great customer service. Good location, clean and comfortable. We stayed 6 nights and would recommend to anyone visiting the city.

Room Tip: 2 bedroom suite great for families.

Nice motel, clean and friendly. Centrally located, within easy walk to the CBD.
Geoff and Naomi spared no effort to make our stay comfortable. Geoff prepared a map of surrounding facilities that he updates regularly as more businesses re-open after the devastating earthquake.
I will sure stay there again.
