“Good for the price”
Reviewed 9 November 2013

I stayed here for 2 days on business. Nice spacious room, basic but clean and had most things I needed. Was upgraded to a balcony room which was nice. The owner stayed up to greet me as I had a late check-in (10.45pm by the time I arrived) and was very friendly. The receptionist who was on the next day was pretty grumpy but when I checked out the friendly chap was back again so all good. A few small things which could be improved - powerpoints were hard to find - in odd places so I couldn't plug my laptop in (eg behind the bed so I had to pull the bed out and plug it in behind the bed). There was a little road noise as it faces on to a busy street but the double glazing does seem to mitigate this.

This motel is close to the CBD area and it's within walking distance to the city centre. However, as major reconstruction is still going on, there is little to see there (in the CBD).

The room was spacious and clean. Good sky tv channel selections and even comes with a dvd player

We arrived in Christchurch from Australia at 12:30 at night for our honeymoon. We had called a couple of days beforehand to get the key left out. The gentleman was very friendly on the phone, we arrived and our key was there. Although the rooms aren't 5 star quality, it was very warm and we had a great sleep, still one of the best beds we have slept in yet. Great service, good value for money & close to our rental car dealership. Stayed one night.

Great central accommodation. Friendly helpful staff and well priced. My Studio room was clean and well equipped and as I was on a quick business trip it was all I needed. I only booked for one night but stayed for three and as it was over the weekend and got there last booking.

Quite a good place. Now the owner is the Chinese. They kindly upgraded my bookings. With all furniture and cooking Kitchenware, everything is easy.

Room is clean and large space. quite close to city center. Easy to book shuttle to airport.
There are many restaurants available. Subway and several nice restaurants in streets not far away

This hotel was nice, we had a two bedroom apartment here, which was very nice and well equipped, we used the hotel BBQ one night while we were there, also we used the hotel launderette, and the owner was very helpful.

This is a standard hotel that is very clean, centrally located and reasonably priced. The desk staff are pleasant and helpful. It's within walking distance (only a few blocks) to Cathedral Square, the white-chair memorial, and the new cardboard-tube cathedral.
