“Friendly Service”
Reviewed 7 November 2013

We just stayed in this hotel overnight to catch a very early flight . If reception had not called us to remind us of a change to daylight savings time, we would have missed our flight. He then arranged with a taxi to pick us up the next morning, as well as the young man staying in the room next to us. This taxi charged us 1/2 the price that it cost us to come from the airport to the hotel ! The room was large, clean, and had a kitchenette and a sofa to sit on. The room was very plain but had a nice king size bed. The bathroom could be modernized as the toilet was in its own cubicle, plus the shower made it appear cramped. The grounds and the buildings were well kept, neat and clean.

Room Tip: We had a studio room. Do not know if that is a larger room than a standard.

Stayed here for 3 nights while attending a sports event. It is an older motel that is dated and probably due for renovation. However, having said the it was clean, comfortable and we enjoyed getting back there - a very relaxing atmosphere. The beds were very comfortable and the unit we were in was spacious. I did see that there was a large playground for kids and unfortunately didn't check to see what other facilities were available. The staff were very pleasant and were helpful transporting us to the airport. There is a bus stop directly outside so we didn't bother hiring a car as Christchurch must have one of the best tranport systems in NZ. Would definitely stay again :)

We have stayed here three previous times, the place has always been outdated but we have in the past been ok with that as it came with free short term parking and airport transfers and was clean! This time upon arrival our room smelt badly like Chinese takeaways. The room was unclean. The man at e desk was very unhelpful we did not need an airport transfer on he way there but asked if we could have one on the way back. They said that we would have to walk to the sudima hotel to be picked up! If you enjoy staying in a 70s themed (including no wifi, or internet) unclean room with hosts who don't go out of their way for repeat customers go for it!

Couldn't fault the service we received. Collected from airport after the driver had to look for us. Driven a short distance to motel which was very clean and tidy. Owner offered to drive us to any food outlet to purchase dinner within reasonable distance. Beds were deliciously comfortable. Would recommend to those who have traveled and need a good nights sleep :)

We arrived in Christchurch airport at night and motel boss picked us up from airport quite promptly. Room is very large with 2 beds that can accomodate at least 3 people. Amenities are quite basic though. A small heater and electronic blanket can keep us warm at night. We ordered breakfast which is too basic (would rather bring our own instead)

In the morning, motel boss called up Omega rental to come and pick us up, apparently they are quite familiar with each other.

Motel boss can speak Chinese which is an added benefit for tourists from China.

Room heater wasnt on upon check in, not a great start on a winters evening! room was based on a 70's era theme or last time it was furnished, however it was clean and tidy, heavily dated though insufficiently heated ( a colleagues room was damp) given they charged $130 australian it was well over the top and cannot recommend this place to anyone at that price, it really was over the odds for such basic accomodation

Room Tip: dont stay here

Stayed here overnight before an early morning flight. The rooms were so basic for the price. Literally everything in the room was old and smelt musky. I was at first hesitant to lay on the beds from the smell in the room. The heater also was really really loud so couldnt sleep with it on. there was a smaller cheap bar heater that didnt really do much for the size of the room. Wouldnt choose to stay here again.
