“Stay in town”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 April 2014

Poorly maintained rooms and not close to town. I suggest you pay a bit more and stay in town. I walked into town and back for the excercise and there is a bus service to make it easy for those not wishing to walk.

Room Tip: Don't stay here.

If you are looking for somewhere that is convenient to the shopping that Christchurch has to offer that is located in the riccarton area, then look no further. When I stayed here, I was amazed at the size of the one bedroom unit and the price I paid. One comfy double bed and a single, with Sky tv to watch along with tea, coffee and two bottles of milk as a complimentary gift. The shower is warm, the atmosphere is inviting and for 100.00 it was well worth it. I tell my family and my friends about this place when we come to christchurch. The location is perfect with a bus stop literally 30 seconds from motel to stop. Lots of parking and friendly service makes this motel a very cool place. Cheapest around too

We were very unimpressed with our small room. It was advertised as a double, but we were surprised at how small it was. There was very little room between the bed at the walls and nowhere for us to put our luggage. We understand that rooms are at a premium in Christchurch, but compared to another room we'd had in Christchurch earlier in our trip this one was very disappointing. We won't be staying there again.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back would be quieter.

Central location and good for CBD & airport. Very basic, consisted of bits and pieces of odd/old furniture. In need of modernising & carpet was threadbare. $8 for 24 hrs internet, continually timed out. Sorry, but wouldn't stay again. Korean owners, pleasant and will pay more and go for upgrade next time in Christchurch. Ate at Lone Star which was excellent.

Room Tip: Would not recommend

Very spacious rooms, good spacious kitchen area. Date rooms but we got used to that in every motel in NZ. Short drive to the airport, which is what we needed for a very early start. Good wifi connection. Friendly staff. Was exactly what we needed.

This Motel is basic, conveniently located to Bar , restaurant, Malls, buses and University . It's probably close to needing a spruce up but provides the necessities and, while in a noisy location on Riccarton Road, is tidy and comfortable

Quiet, clean, close to amenities. There's plenty of space in the units and the kitchen is adequate and useful. The water pressure in the shower is excellent, and there's lots of hot water. The staff is friendly. The wireless internet function well for us, although it is not free.
