“Not Impressed”
Reviewed 18 June 2013

Our unit was upstairs and the bedroom and bathroom was very cramped.
No room for your bags in the bedroom as you could just get around the bed.
The bathroom was the same. Getting in and out the shower was awkward.
The unit was clean and tidy. One more thing I would like to add. The couch bed sofa
out in the lounge area for seating was the most uncomfortable piece of furniture I have
ever sat on. We have travelled around the South Island a lot and always had nice
comfortable seating. Not impressed. Would not stay there again.

My new husband and I had our 'honey moon' plans changed due to family tragedy. We spend all of our annual leave time staying at motels and hotels around new zealand and other pacific islands. I have to say we totally enjoyed our stay. Thank you to a quality motel absolutely lovely and the upmost helpful service we totally enjoyed our stay. A place you must visit and stay. We will definitely be heading back there and informing all of our family, friends and others of this lovely place... and we are from Christchurch! A+++++

Room Tip: We loved the private spa pool, and the lovely service topped it off you cant beat that in Christchur...

Originally we planned to stay in Kaikoura but hadn't booked anything, to our surprise all accommodation was fully booked. Oh well, on to Christchurch. We headed for Papanui Rd and called into Casino Court. The motelier was very helpful and welcoming. We had an upstairs studio unit which would put most one bedroom units to shame for space. There was a good kitchenette with full oven, sink microwave etc. Just what we needed at the time! I could see the rooms would be a little too hot at times as there is no air conditioning and double glazing would be helpful. Still, for the price we thought the stay was great value and would recommend the Casino Court. Just have a small car though as parking is very, very tight!

Room Tip: I would probably go for the first floor studio like we had, our number was 10. Great location, off...

What a great motel-such a perfect location, close to town, Merivale and the park. We were very impressed with the spacious rooms and excellent lay-out for a family-and very reasonable. Lovely clean room and bathroom-with a powerful shower! Very professional, welcoming hosts. Would definitely stay here again. Highly recommended.

It was quiet. It was clean. The beds were comfortable. The location was excellent. And, the service at the front desk was terrific.We appreciated the separate bedroom for our children and every bed had a heated mattress pad. Lovely!

Room Tip: Ask for a room further away from the road.

Reviewed 6 November 2012

My unit had a double bed in the lounge area (shared with a sofa and a small dining table and chairs) and a separate bedroom with two single beds. The moving space in the lounge area is a bit cramped. There is a TV in the lounge area but not in the bedroom. On the positive side the bathroom is spacious and clean and the kitchenette is of good size. Very friendly reception, a good night's sleep. A brisk walk to the Merivale Mall which has a Fresch Choice with a good deli selection. Bus stop on the doorstep. In all a good overnight stay.

I am very surprised at the review dated June 26. We were guests at this motel for four weeks. We found the owners very friendly and went to amazing trouble to accommodate us during the month of June. We were displaced from our home at short notice to enable repairs and the folk at this establishment went to the effort of accommodating us, our daughter and family of tiny people who was visiting from Sydney as well as helping us out when the repairs were not finished on time. We found the staff and owners professional and friendly and would recommend the place to anyone who wants a good, cosy away from home feeling place to stay.
