“Average Accommodation”
Reviewed 10 October 2012

The office smelt very bad on first arrival, If I had not already paid I would have moved on quickly. Office person was not friendly. Unit is very dated but was tidy enough. The towel In the room was of one star accommodation, something you would dry the dog with. I stayed three nights and was glad to be on my way. Would not stay again

Room Tip: Don't choose room 9, there is a set of traffic lights 5m from your room.

Reviewed 22 July 2012

Stayed here one night en route from Wellington to Lake Tekapo.

This would have been a solid 3 stars but it gets 4 stars because:

- Good location, 150m from Intercity Bus stop and less than half that to a late night pharmacy and medical centre;
- Reception was still open when we arrived 9:20pm (delayed a bit due to needing to stop at the aforementioned pharmacy!);
- We had only booked a cheap basic room but were upgraded to a full size one bedroom ground floor unit.

The unit was, I suppose, older style by modern standards but I generally like this sort of place, feels like the sort of house many New Zealanders grew up in. Toilet was separate from the bathroom (which is always nice), and the bathroom had a separate bath and shower. Sky TV. Good sized bedroom.

I can imagine it would be hard to keep warm on the coldest winter nights and mornings - Christchurch typically drops below zero a few times during winter.

Overall it was very good for our quick one night stay before catching the Intercity Bus in the morning.

Reviewed 8 April 2009

Stayed at this motel for 2 nights during the weekdays. Our double en-suite room was clean and the bed comfortable. The decor was sweet and homey and the facilities were good, except that the hair dryer wasn't working. The hosts were friendly and cheerful. It's not all that far from the CBD/Cathedral Square (around 10-15mins walk), if you enjoy walking.

P/S: However, If you would like to stay there during the weekends, check further about the area conditions (Bealey Avenue) before you book.
