“A lovely place to stay.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2014

We had a lovely stay at The Lorenzo motel. It's a centrally located place with the Westfield mall at walking distance (approx. 10 mins). If you like to walk, then the Richard Hagley park and the old chapel are also just about 20-25 mins from this place.
The staff was so friendly and co-operative.
The rooms were spotless. There was a small kitchenette where a small meal could be cooked.
The only thing that could have been better was the size of the beds. My family is slightly on the obese side. So the beds were kind of small for us to be comfortable. Other than that, everything was perfect. This was one of the few hotels (in my experience) in New Zealand that provided free, unlimited wi-fi!!

On a recent trip to Christchurch we stayed at Lorenzo Motor Lodge. It was a very good choice. It is west of the city, on Riccarton Road, just west of Hagley Park. The room was roomy and comfortable for the three of us. The reception was very polite and friendly. And, Lorenzo Motor Lodge knows how to do something that baffles larger hotels in New Zealand- it provides free internet access!! Riccarton Road isn't very impressive, but it is only a short walk and you find yourself in beautiful Hagley Park.

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
