298 Westside Motor Lodge
Ranked #76 of 146 Hotels in Christchurch
Reviewed 7 May 2011

1 word sums it all - Perfect! The staff members were friendly and they made us feel right at home! It was my mother's birthday on 15-April and I wrote to Westside asking them to help me buy a cake for my mum and they agreed to help out. Upon arrival at the Christchurch International Airport, I called them to request for a pick up. It was past midnight then. Trish answered the phone and said that she would be there in 20 minutes' time. It took us a LONG TIME to get to the pick-up point as we could not find it and we waited at the wrong spot! But Trish waited patiently for us in the van. Now, that's customer service at its BEST! Our 1 bedroom unit was warm and cozy and it was SPOTLESSLY clean. Our unit has 2 LCD TVs (in the living room and bedroom), a well-equipped kitchen, and the bathroom has heated towel rail, heater, hairdryer and free toiletries (i.e organic soap, shampoo and makeup remover). Continental breakfast is also available at a reasonable price. There's free Wifi too! My parents and I truly enjoyed our stay at this motel and we will (without a doubt) return when we make another trip to NZ in future! 2 thumbs up from all three of us!!

Reviewed 30 April 2011

The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient. Airport transport included, though not mentioned in the hotel description. The room was clean and included a kitchenette and jacuzzi tub (again not mentioned) and was one of the least expensive available. Great value!!!
