5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 April 2013

This Motel is very central - very clean and really well appoointed, we stayed the night while being in Chrisytchurch for a good freinds birthday. Everything we needed was there, would definetly stay again. Lovely and warm is close to main road however we did not hear a thing.

Went to the New Cashell St mall, its awesome - defeintly worth a visit - great to see Johnsons grocers etc going again. Great for coffee and food - Made me feel even more proud of Canterbarians!!

Everything about our stay here was wonderful, from booking to checking out, these people really know how to look after their guests and at a very reasonable price. Upon entering our room we were greeted with a modern designer décor which was inviting and comfortable as well as immaculately clean. Very comfortable bed, no noise and very friendly, helpful management.

Room Tip: go with whatever they recommend you won't be disappointed

We enjoyed a 4 night stop at this motel.

Room was good and reception very friendly & helpful.

We'd relied on email to sort out the transfer from the station but it hadn't worked - do ring them! All resolved happily.

There are eating places nearby but not on the doorstep.

Bus service to city centre is nearby.

spent three very comfortable nights there in February. Free WIFI was the clincher. Rooms were spotless, beds super comfortable, a good selection of informations available and the hosts were professional and warm. A good selection of restaurants within 5 minutes walking distance. Will be returning again next year.

A great place with spacious rooms with kitchen, flat screen, free unlimited wifi (a rarity in New Zealand), modern and more than you'd expect for the price. Takes a 15 minute walk to downtown, but as downtown is still recovering from the 2011 earthquake, there's hardly anything much closer anyways. Around the motel are a few good bars and restaurants to kick back. Good place to scout Christchurch from for a day or 2.

Really good appointed rooms which go well above the usual motel accommodation. Basic kitchen but weren't there to cook, so didn't care. Arrived after hours and key arrangements were managed by the staff so we had no problem to get in. The heater and the lights in the ground level room were left on for us and we felt welcomed when arrived after midnight!
The parking is available at the property but was packed that night, so had to park on the side of the drive way. It was a Pleasant surprised when no one complained in the morning.
Oh, and the price is very reasonable for the level of service. Would definitely come back again.

This was a very clean, neat, colorful unit with a small patio and garden in the center of town, easy to find, with a helpful staff. It was easy to drive from here to the Christchurch Arboretum, and to get downtown to see the reconstruction after the earthquake. We would be glad to return
