We enjoyed our stay here. We stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment. The rooms were very clean, comfortable and tidy. The kitchen was well equipped. The beds were comfortable. The facilities were modern and the shower was great it had really good pressure!
The staff were friendly and helpful, happy to call a cab and help with info regarding buses into the city etc.
There is a bus stop right outside the motel on Riccarton Rd that takes you into the city in about 15-20mins. You can also walk straight down the road to Riccarton Mall which has supermarkets, McDonalds, clothes shops etc which is about a 15 minute walk.
Only negatives was there was an odd damp smell in our room, but it wasn't too bad we didn't bother mentioning it to the staff, and there was a bit of outside noise with uni students making noise on their way home in the early hours of the morning but that's to be expected when you stay in a uni area.
Overall this is a great place to stay if you've got business or leisure in Christchurch.
TIP..... with the $10 airport fee added, a taxi to this motel will cost you $35.
