“Cute place, good position”
Reviewed 7 April 2014

This place has cute and spacious rooms and is well situated. It's a very pleasant walk across the gardens from the Christchurch CBD, and is also walking distance from a lot of shops, including a mall, on Riccarton Road. Some aspects of the rooms are a little dated, reminding me of some past family holidays, but everything is clean and good. Friendly and helpful management.

This place is a cozy and an affordable option in Christchurch.Centrally located, it's quite near to malls, grocery stores and restaurants. The owner is an extremely friendly person and helped us out in our day to day activities and requirements. The rooms are extremely spacious and we'll equipped. Highly recommended for a simple,cozy, homelike stay in Christchurch.

Stayed one night, great welcome at reception. Location is great, with plenty of restaurants just around the corner and a short enough walk into the centre of Christchurch. As said by other reviewers, the rooms are a little dated, but it was good value for what we paid. Perfect for short stays, but I probably wouldn't stay here for a week!

Stayed two nights at this motel and Bruce the Manager could not have been more helpful with advise and places to visit.
They also provided transport to the train that we were catching to continue our trip.
We stayed in an upstairs King studio.. plenty of room, with a kitchen.
Across the road from the Christchurch Botanical Gardens and a short walk to eateries and the city.
A little dated but very clean and comfortable... excellent value for money.

Room Tip: Top floor corner suites is large and sunny.

We spent 2 nights here and have no complaints at all. As another person has mentioned maybe the bathroom and toilet is small but totally adequate for short stays.

Staff excellent and helpful.

Highly recommended!

Flew into Christchurch and driving to Hokatika next day. Hotel is a bit dated in decor and fittings but everything worked well and it met our expectations. Its location meant our shopping for trip supplies was easy. Closeness to the park allowed for a great walk before having dinner at a near by venue. All in all a goog experience.

Room Tip: Maybe the definition of a suite is a little generous however we slept in the bedroom instead of the...

We were a group of 6 golfers who took 2 rooms. The place is in a great location. We could hear boy racers on the Saturday night so if you were a light sleeper that would likley upset you. The beds were really comfortable. Sure it is dated but it was clean and good value. The shower was not very good at all pressure wise but that was the only real negative. There is a nice cafe aroung the corner and up Riccarton road called Cafe Sismo - the first one you come to after the railway line - on the left hand side. The food was good and the service exceptional.
