We were coming down to Christchurch for a weekend and as we were doing the return day trip on the Tranz Alpine we wanted to be close to the Railway Station. There were several places to choose from - we selected the Addington Court Motel because it looked good on their website, was reasonably priced - and it was rated as a Qualmark 4 Star Motel. They also offered free transfers to and from the railway station and as an added bonus we discovered it was a fantastic location to be in.
The rooms are just lovely, we had a studio which was plenty big enough for the two of us for a couple of nights. It had a well equipped kitchenette so if you wanted to prepare a meal you could, however it was easy walking distance to a wide selection of eateries. We had free wifi and we were thrilled to have electric blankets so the bed was nice and toastie warm (given that it is winter).
A free transfer (taxi service) was provided to the railway station and we could have taken advantage of a free transfer back, however we chose to walk as it is actually a very short distance. On the day we checked out we left our suitcase at the motel so we could walk into Christchurch City Centre - it was an easy 20 minute walk. The map we had been given when we checked-in was handy and noted many places to eat along with distances from the motel.
The couple who run the motel are friendly and made helpful suggestions as to where to go for breakfast and what to do in Christchurch. We would definitely stay here again on our next trip to Christchurch.
