“Marmite!!!”
Reviewed 2 November 2012 via mobile

They have it!

Seriously, I really enjoyed my stay here, thought it was a very well appointed and comfortable motel room, and good value. Potentially could be a bit noisy as is close to the road, however, I didn't hear anything!

Very convenient to Addington Raceway, the Westac Events Centre and the Christchurch Stadium.

If only my office wasn't on the other side of town, I wouldn't hesitate to stay here again.

Nice cat, and MARMITE for my toast in the morning.

Thanks!

We were transferred here from the Arena because they were full so the 2 do seem to work well together. The Motel is very well equipped and in good condition with a friendly helpful owner. We caught the early train to Picton and the Motel arranged for a taxi to take us at no cost to us. If you are traveling by train Christchurch centre is a short bus ride away although Addington seems to be expanding at a faster pace than the CBD rebuild.

We were taking the train from Picton to Christchurch and the train was late getting to the station. The manager of the hotel, personally picked us up at the train station and drove us to the hotel. The room was very pleasant and clean with a kitchenette. This included a small bottle of milk in the fridge, pots, pans, dishes, silverware, etc. to help us keep our costs down. My computer could not get internet, so they sent a guy out the next day to fix my computer or their network. By the time I got home, my old computer had wireless. For a pleasant stay in Christchurch with friendly competent management, try Addington Court.

I spent two weeks here on business, and was allocated one of the downstairs rooms. The room was very clean, well appointed with modern televisions and a basic but functional kitchenette. I had a few very minor problems with appliances and these were attended to promptly and without fuss by the staff and manager.

I definitely recommend this Motel.

I spent a week staying at the Addington Court Motel on a business trip. My room was always immaculately cleaned - nothing was missed and nothing was done by halves, it was like coming back to a new room every day. The bathroom was perfect (and shower pressure was strong which I love). Bed was very comfortable - slept like a baby. A little bit of road traffic, but nothing that keeps you up at night. Friendly owners - very understanding when I had a late check-out. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Very happy.

We used this motel at the start and at the end of our Trans Alpine Train journey. The decor was modern and the bathroom was clean and modern too.
The help from the Managers was great, they organized train transfers and a shuttle in an efficient and friendly manner. They even went the extra mile and loaned an umbrella for our walk around the devastated Christchurch Red Zone.
We will definitely stay here again when we come back through Christchurch.

Nice room really comfortable, only issue is you can hear everything from the room above, if it wasn't for this it would have been great. Having a good sleep until upstairs got up in the morning early. Location good.
