“Lovely Hosts”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

The lovely hosts make this place a great place to stay.
We stayed in a 2 room chalet and were very pleased with it - it was roomy and comfortable and were impressed that it was serviced daily as that doesn't happen all the time with motor camps.
It was certainly a very convenient place to stay and would recommend it for families.
The only draw back would be the parking - there were cars everywhere and although the chalets come with a carpark we could only park in it one out of the three nights we were there as others had parked there.

We turned up early to time we said, but that wasn't a problem lady in the desk was happy and we were greeted with a smile!

We got to our room to see our. Bed wasn't made? Thinking we had to make it ourselves we put our things down in the room and then two cleaners came along. The room isn't ready they said. I told them we had been told by the receptionist that the room was ready. Problems for us. They cleaned the room as we headed into Christchurch.

This motel is a far way from Christchurch but very good if you did the airport.

The toilet and shower block were okay.
The shower was very poor and I was very cold while in the shower.

The bed was fantastic and got a great night sleep.

On arriving we were told by the helpful lady/owner that we'd been up-graded...
Which was a bonus...
I'd had correspondence from the owner via email on what was our eta and that if we were running late that she'd leave key somewhere we'd be able to collect & self cheak-in.....
Thankfully we didn't need the offer.... Though again very helpful...
The rm was large and very comfortable, twin bedrooms,kitchen and bathroom & toilet...
Ample rm to park the car....
We were very happy and would not hesitate on staying again in future....
Though a little difficult from uk.....

The down side to this place.....
Its at least 20min from city centre by car, 10-15 from airport on Christchurch's ring rd...
Noisy at night if your rm is near rd (which most are)...

Room Tip: r'm on south side are quiter, we were near rd, and very noisy at nights....

Just about summed up in my title. We had my parents arriving at the airport late in the evening and collecting a hire car the next day. We had the 3 bed motel room. Very spacious and well equipped. The place was spotless! Every staff member we came across was so helpful and accommodating. Sensible priced laundry facilities too!. So close to the airport and car hire location. We enjoyed our stay so much that we've booked a return visit. Keep up the great work :-)

Room Tip: Can't fault this place. It is close to the road but honestly the location is so close to the air...

My hubby and I stored our bus there for around 15 months during the week and stayed two nights every weekend for that time and found this place addictive... extremely helpful and friendly people, Bronnie, Steve and Lenore. Was very family and animal friendly and laid back with a variety of people from tourists to permanents, one big happy family. The toilets, kitchen and lounge are very clean and tidy and the cleaning ladies always at the ready with a hello... I will so miss going there, as we have moved back to the North Island but we would not hesitate to make the effort to spend a night with them again... thank you Bronnie Steve and Lenore (sorry Lenore if I spelt your name wrong). You all are great people...

We arrived at this hotel about 2 a.m. because of our late flight, and left quite early in the morning, so we didn't stay for very long. This is a holiday park, so all the bathrooms are in one place. We had a double room with a shared bathroom. The room was basic, but clean. The bathrooms were also basic but clean. There was plenty of parking.
The location of the hotel is perfect for someone catching an early morning flight or coming from a very late flight. The service at the hotel was excellent. Because we came so late, it was arranged for us to have a key at the front office and directions to our room. Everything worked great. In the morning, we were greeted by a very friendly lady at reception and she helped us find a grocery store near by.

We stayed for three weeks on a powered site and Bronnie could not have done more for us. Extremely helpful friendly owners and lovely surroundings. Thank you very much for your friendly welcome. If we needed to we would definitely chose 219 as our first option for accommodation in the future.
