“Good service and good location”
Reviewed 31 December 2013

A very pleasant place to stay. Pleasant and courteous service. Well-equipped room. The location is excellent. I wouldn't want to stay in Christchurch CBD at the moment: Lorenzo Motor Lodge is in a part of Christchurch where everything is open and full of life. There is a big mall with a supermarket nearby and some really interesting Asian restaurantas. It's a pleasant walk through parks and the Botanic Gardens to get to the central area to see how the reconstruction is going.

Just 20 minutes from the airport

Effortless check in and we were in our room within in a couple of minutes. It is in close proximity to a good range of restaurants and shops and 20 minutes walk gets you into the heart of Christchurch.

This is a good clean and well sited accomodation which I would recommend to anyone staying in Christchurch

Everything was near perfect on our two day stay here. The deluxe double spa suite was very clean and there were a few nice touches I.e. cookies, make up remover, stand alone fan which helped make our chch weekend wonderful. Would stay there again!

This motel with the hispanic name is owned and operated by a person named Ping Liu. Just a funny little tidbit there. Very nice people! Check in was so easy! I was just asked if I wanted skim or regular milk for my coffee, and the lady took the milk out, walked us to our room, and actually said, "You asked for a quiet room, and this is a good one". I have honestly never had anyone mention my request before. All of the hotel websites ask if there are any requests, but then they just ignore them.
There was a private little courtyard in back with a sliding door and trees. The bathroom was large, but the shower only had a curtain around it. No barrier between it and the rest of the bathroom floor, which was a little odd. However, it had great water pressure and a hand held shower head, which I love. There is also a heater in the ceiling - COMFY!
The room has a large selection of coffee, tea and sweeteners, and even a cookie. There's a microwave, fridge, small cooktop, dishes (including wine glasses)...just everything you need for a very comfortable home away from home. I would not stay anywhere else in Christchurch! This was the best place we stayed throughout our 2 weeks in NZ, and it was only for 1 night :(
Oh - forgot to add - There is a fitness center across the street you can use for free (Ibis charged $15.00), and they have relationships with the surrounding restaurants to be able to charge to your room.

Room Tip: Apparently, just ask for what you want, and they'll get it for you. I asked for a quiet room, a...

Lorenzo Motor Lodge was the best of about 8 different hotels we stayed at on a recent bike tour through the South Island, ending in Christchurch. And, it had very reasonable rates of $144US per night. Recently upgraded, nice bath rooms, with double jacuzzi tub, clean, helpful and friendly staff, plenty of towels, a rarity for NZ. Owner operated shows in customer service and hard work. We liked this place so much, it is the only place we will stay at in Christchurch, should we go again. Keep the bathroom door closed when showering, or it will set off smoke alarm. Very small inconvenience for such a nice place.

Room Tip: Our room was away from road so it was quiet, but they all may be.

This was our last stop before out flight the next morning back to the North Island. The motel was along a strip of others, so you have to really look out for them as a lot of them look similar! The owners were very friendly and we found them really helpful, they came to our room to tell us when they are there and when they are out etc, where there is locally to eat and generally introduce themselves which was lovely!

We found it was a very comfortable place to rest for our flight the next morning, and we ate at Nando's accross the road!

Definately a recommended stay!
I don't think there is alot to do in Christchurch, i'm not sure if this is because of the earthquakes they had, but it's not somewhere known for its breathtaking views. But definately provides a good first and last night nearer the airport, rather than driving for miles on the same day.
