Friendly welcome. Free wifi in room. Good size room and small outside patio. The staff even arranged a free transfer to the railway station. Easy walk through the park into the city. Plenty of restaurants within a few minutes walk. Trevinos was our choice and an excellent one at that.

What an excellent motel. Great location with plenty of good eating establishments close by - you must go to Dux Dine for dinner and breakfast. The studio room was spacious; the bed ultra-comfortable; the shower invigorating; and a full range of Sky TV channels to choose from. Lots of nice touches to make one's stay enjoyable. Lorenzo may be a bit more expensive than some other motels, but worth every penny.

Room Tip: Rooms closer to the road may have some traffic noise - my unit was away from the road and I always t...

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.
