“Welcoming and Great Location”
Reviewed 1 September 2014

We stayed for 4 nights for a mixture of business and pleasure. Jeff and Naomi were welcoming and gave us plenty of information about Christchurch as well as highlighting eateries etc that were close by. The rooms were immaculate and well-appointed. The blackout curtains made for a good rest. I have no hesitation in recommending this property and will be returning.

This is an excellent motel run by extremely friendly staff. The room was well equipped and comfortable, with good, fast internet. The highlight of our stay was the friendly welcome and the advice provided regarding nearby restaurants and landmarks. We were also given some very useful tips for our drive from Christchurch to Dunedin. Would recommend this motel to everyone.

Hello Nick F and thanks for the review after staying with us at the start of your South Island holiday.
Great to see you loved our Central City Christchurch location including the many nearby restaurants and landmarks that can be easily walked to. Hope you had a great drive to Dunedin and enjoyed the pies and salmon along the way!!

This place is fantastic ! Very clean and has everything you could want in a room . Jeff the guy at reception was great , very welcoming . Speaks fluent Japanese (heard him on the phone) . He told us about a few places we should check out too .
The place itself is very close to everything . Literally a small walk to Victoria street which has all the nightlife on it .
Would definitely stay here if I come to Christchurch again !

Hi there ashskyy says Jeff, the guy at reception who was on a rather long phone call with a Japanese guest - thanks for waiting!! Thanks for staying with us at the end of your ski infused NZ holiday - staying in central Christchurch close to the Victoria St. entertainment precinct was a great choice. Wonderful that you enjoyed all and everything including our central city info pack!

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!
