“Tucked away feeling in the midst of chaotic Riccarton road”
Reviewed 18 September 2013 via mobile

I was with my kids 11 and 8 yo, we just needed to stay one night while waiting for our flight back to Australia the next day. I have just driven 6 hours from the west coast, tired and a little broke... So I was kind of hoping for a little miracle of finding a very nice and decent place for my kids, without breaking my tight budget. We checked one motel and the price was much dearer than I was willing to pay. We kept looking and the name Fyffe caught my little girl's attention, It looked nice and so we went and asked, the manager was very accommodating, he gave me an expensive price as well, but I felt comfortable talking to him... So i just mentioned that it's too dear and we only need it for one night as we are in transit. So he showed me a room with a Super King bed, and he said if the three of us are ok to fit in it, we can have the room and it's much cheaper... Well my kids and i are all skinny, so we were happy to take it.
The room is pretty, very clean, modern, surprisingly spacious, and the beddings color scheme and room decor are modern and pleasant to the eyes. We felt rested and relaxed on the last night of our adventurous trip.

My wife and I stayed in a studio unit.The bed was very good indeed,clean and very comfortable,which was great as we were very tired.We found the unit was rather cramped,however,the facilities were modern and very clean.There were many cracked tiles,maybe being still earthquake damage.Felt it was a bit overpriced ,we have had better for the amount we paid.A big issue was that when we went out we never were able to have the same park again,which became very annoying.Car parks should have room numbers.Good though it was,but we will go elsewhere in future.

Hi,

Thank you for pointing out about the car parks we will take this into consideration. We apologize for the fact that accomdation are a bit higher than rest of the country at the moment, since the earhquake, our rate, insurance, rent and many other costs have increased by lots, some even doubled.

Thanks

Executive spa suite.
The room was fastidiously cleaned, spotless. The bedding was comfortable and quality.
And, George, the proprietor is an awesome guy.
The double glazing shuts out the noise of Riccarton road, and it's about a 10-15 minute walk to the mall.
I would happily stay at Fyffe again

Room Tip: The double glaze makes a difference, but ask for a room at the back of the hotel if road noise is a...

A friend and I were there on business last month and stayed for six nights. We had a suite with two bedrooms. We had excellent service, and the facility was spotless. The kitchen was well equipped. The location is excellent, within walking distance of the Riccarton Mall, buses also run up and down the street. Our unit was very quiet, away from the road. We also had our own little patio.

Clean and pretty quiet. We stayed 1 night here just passing through. I would recommend staying here if you want somewhere clean and affordable. The staff were very friendly, the room had cooking facilties and is within walking distance of a supermarket
