Very friendly and accommodating hosts, room was spotlessly clean, beds were very comfy. Ideally situated for a short drive to shops and Christchurch central. Would highly recommend.

This motel is happily recommended by all four lady bowlers who recently visited Christchurch for a 4 day tournament, what a great base this motel proved to be. Very clean with lovely hosts who were both friendly and helpful. The two interlocking units with two excellant bathrooms (great water pressure) made the morning scramble stress free. No hesitation in re-booking next time we visit the city.

We read the reviews online about the Cranford Oak and decided to give it a go.
We were pleasantly surprised when we arrived. We were able to park our car very easily (some motels have tiny parking lots). The rooms are slightly smaller but it wasn't a problem for us. Even though we had a ground floor unit, we slept through the nite without hearing anything (good double glazing with thick curtains) Free wired broadband is available. And Greg and Sandy are great hosts. We booked a second nite the next day.

We spent four nights here and it was the cleanest and nicest place we had stayed. Sandy and Greg found nothing we asked too much, and went out of their way to make our stay very pleasant. I will recommend to my friends and if I return to NZ will stay here again

my husband and i had recently stayed in three different accommodations in Christchurch, and Cranford Oak is the best amongst. Location is very central, parking lot is very spacious, of course the owner Sandy is a very nice person.

My husband is wheelchair bound so we were looking for disability friendly accommodation for his university reunion. It was the first time we had been in Christchurch in 40 odd years without our cousins who have moved to supported accommodation in Wellington,so it was a little strange. But Sandy and Greg are both delightful and extremely thoughtful and softened the landing greatly. Good handrails in the bathroom for my immobile husband, and enough, though not a lot of, space in the bedroom for the wheelchair.
