“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 26 December 2013

Service wise, this motel is the best place that I've stayed in any parts of the world. Nothing seem to be too much trouble for the friendly folks running the clean and comfortable place. Cheerful Sylvia gave useful tips and advice, and very helpfully located a clinic for us and checked taxi fares to the airport.

Owners Mary and Terry were outstanding. When they learn that I had to return the rental car at the airport late at night, they offered to pick me up from the airport. What's more they did this without being asked. On top of that, early the next morning Terry drove us to the rail station. I'm speechless with gratitude for their amazing kindness!

Not only was the room very clean, everything else inside was spick and span too. We spotted Japanese speaking cleaning ladies, maybe that partly explains the high cleanliness standard. Unlike some places (including even 5 stars hotels), we did not have to ask for anything during our stay. Cups, towels, toiletries, everything was catered exactly for the number of people staying. We had the most comfortable stay at this wonderful place during our NZ trip and would highly recommend this place again.

We stayed here at Christmas and we were very impressed by the service of the lovely couple running it. They let us use their printer and were so helpful in giving out advice on where to go and what to see. They even gave us some Christmas crackers. Both rooms we booked were spacious and they have separate toilet and bathroom. Highly recommended cos they go the extra mile :)

We have been staying at this motel ever since it was new, it's spacious, constructed to a superior standard, it was designed by a motellier and it shows! The third owners have just taken over the motel and they are very organised and welcoming, they are keeping up the high standard. 306 is very handy to Bush Inn, there are supermarkets there, an ATM machine, and a petrol station, so the location is very good indeed, but the main advantage 306 has is that it is of a clearly superior standard.

Room Tip: Has good double bedroom units for children if needed.

we booked in for two nights in October with our two daughters who had seats at a concert close by.
We had been warned that the Motel had a group staying for the Masters that have been noisy .
We had a sleepless night due to a party of selfish idiots below us who partied til 4 pm .
We weren't prepared to walk to the office past theses drunks for fear of being abused so couldn't inform the owners of the problem .
We confronted them in the morning and asked for them to see it doesn't happen for our second night .
They told us to leave as we weren't happy and that the group had stayed longer than us and were still there for that night .Money won the day even though they refunded a part of our stay.
Disappointed they didn't refund all of our night as it was ruined.
The motel was up to spec and tidy so no problem there ! just the idiots below.

I stayed here last year and tried to get in again this time, but unfortunately I will have to stay elsewhere. Just wanting to inform travelers that this is a great place to stay in ChCh. The unit I stayed in was clean/tidy and very impressed with the friendly and helpful service. Location is great too. Parking is available on site. Would recommend if your heading to ChCh this would be your choice of Motels to stay. Not over the top prices either, which is what you want if your only there to sleep. Remember to book early though or you will miss out!

We spent two nights at the motel. Everything was to a high standard, bedding, towels, bathroom products. Little extras like plunger coffee were appreciated by two tired parents! We are a family of five and the two bedroom unit was pefect for us. Family friendly Restuarants are a close walk from motel. Airport a short distance too. Great stay, friendlt staff. Highly recommended

I stayed here for almost two weeks and was very impressed by the service. Rooms are very clean and nice. The staff was always around to answer questions and even squeegie the moisture off your car windows in the morning. There is everthing you need within walking distance and the bus route is right on the main street. If you need a place to stay do not hesitate to book with the 306 !
