We stayed here as my young son had an operation just down the road, they could not have been more accommodating and understanding, the rooms where warm, comfy, well decorated and child friendly. The beds are extremely comfy and the rooms are immaculate. Nothing was to much trouble for them, including providing a cot and bedding on short notice.

I could not have asked for better :)

Our stay was very good,warm motel,cosy and comfortable bed,and the upgrade since we last stayed here is well done.We will come and stay again as the discount for hospital patient treatment was much appreciated.This motel is in walking distance to both St George's and Southern Cross Hospitals,which took transport worries from us as the weather was kind and we were able to do the walks.

We stayed here for a week and found the unit to be attractively furnished and redecorated, clean and comfortable. The weather was unseasonably warm for mid-July, and the unit was sunny. Intrigued by the old stove (Farenheit temperature control for oven) but these are being progressively replaced as the motel refurbishment continues. Handy to medical consulting rooms in Papanui Road, plus boutique shops, restaurants and the Merivale Mall. Would stay here again, recommend it to travelling couples. Friendly helpful staff.

I have been staying at the Diplomat for 3 months while having earthquake repairs to my home.The motel is in a great location only a 5 minute walk to the mall and several restaurants. The unit is very spacious and warm and has recently been upgraded. Having a full kitchen has been essential as I have had a long stay. The owners Brian and Bridget and thier staff have been friendly and helpful making my stay enjoyable. I would definately recommend this motel.

Brian and Bridget were perfect hosts who were very helpful with restaurant information and sights to see in the area Room spacious, comfortable and spotlessly clean. Great quiet sitting area out the back of each unit. when we booked the told us we would have to move rooms after 1 night. this was done without any problems. The first room had not been redecorated but still was in very good condition. the second room was brand new and both were excellent. A great place to stay to see Christchurch. When we arrived the car park was due to have been resurfaced but the builders had not turned up. Minor problem that will have been put right by now. would be very happy to stay here again
