Addington Court Motel
Ranked #49 of 146 Hotels in Christchurch
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 17 May 2013

I stayed one night on holiday and the room met all my expectations. It was reasonably large, very clean and comfortable. The hosts were very helpful and gave me driving directions, and always ready for a chat. Overall, I enjoyed my stay.

The only issue is that cleaners tried to open my door around 9 am (as they seem to do at most motels in New Zealand) whilst I was in the shower. I say "tried" as this room had a security latch that will not allow the door to be fully opened from the outside (as hotels tend to have). This is a rarity as almost every other motel I stayed in New Zealand does not have these and those incidents were very annoying. So, I would rate this motel as superior to most.

Thank you very much for taking the time to post a review for the motel, we appreciate all the feedback that we receive.

We are glad to hear you enjoyed our facilities and your stay with us. We were sorry to hear you had a knock on the door at 9am though, as we have a strict policy in place in this regard.

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.
