Reviewed 7 January 2014

We stayed here on our last day in NZ and happy we did. The people here are super helpful telling us what was around the local area and helping to book our airport shuttle.

Clean and modern room, bathroom was very nice ours had a spa bath but unfortunately we did not have time to enjoy it. TV had Pay TV access, Ipod doc clock radio, fresh milk and microwave in the room, they also have free Wifi.

The restaurant next door Dux Dine was a great place for breakfast. There are lots of other places to eat along the street and a Large shopping centre down the road. About a 1.5km walk through the Botanic gardens to the main part of the city. Or catch a bus for $3.50 as there are lots that go down Riccarton Rd.

Stayed here at start and end of NZ tour. Good quality accommodation with modern fittings and all quite new. Comfortable beds and helpful staff. Excellent restaurant next door, Dux Dine and many more close by. Short trip to airport and a pleasant 30 min walk through botanic gardens to town. Kept our luggage for us on last day whilst we went sightseeing before evening departure.

Room Tip: Rooms on two floors so if you don't want stairs ask for ground.

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...
