“Friendly, spotless and possibly earthquake proof!”
Reviewed 3 August 2011

This is in one of the more badly quake-hit areas of the Christchurch suburbs, and although this meant some of the doors were a bit sticky the room itself was large and light and spotlessly clean. I was booked in with a colleague for an overnight stop while working in the city for a couple of days. While the motel's not particularly good for the CBD it's convenient for the eastern/southern suburbs, and to be honest, the CBD is still not particularly easy to navigate round so you might as well be here as anywhere. Our room had a double bed in the large lounge/kitchen area and a separate bedroom with two singles. Even though it was -2 degrees outside the rooms were nice and warm. If you're looking for somewhere with swanky designer decor this isn't for you. But if you're after somewhere that's reasonably priced, comfortable, warm and clean, this would do nicely

Reviewed 25 August 2010

My husband + I have just stayed @ Acadia Motel in Woolston. It is the first time we have stayed here always going for a more central motel/hotel. We were pleasantly surprised by the helpful owners. Giving us advice on the weather + helping us to plan an outing using up to date pamphlets. Clean towels, replenish tea + coffee. Although they are older style motels they had recently been painted. Decor is fresh+light. Our unit was cleaned to a very high standard. We were surprised at the ease we got to Shopping malls, central Christchurch + Colombo St where we eat out. The Woolston Workingman's Club is walking distance away and they have a curtesy van to get home.
