Sherborne Motor Lodge
Ranked #58 of 146 Hotels in Christchurch
Reviewed 8 April 2014

Our flight arrived after midnight. Malcolm and Linda arranged things so we could access our room when we arrived. Not only was everything as described, on a cold, wet and windy night the heater was on, the lights were on and everthing was just perfect.
A more welcoming experience we could not ask for. Thank you both for an excellent experience. We will certainly stay again.

We are a Ma 'n Pa motel and our office is open thirteen hours a day (twelve in the off season). We realise that some of our guests have travel arrangements that get them here at times that don't necessarily suit us so we do our best to make their arrival as easy and comfortable as possible.

Lovely motel, very friendly and helpful staff / owner, and plenty of restaurants and supermarket (within approximately 7 mins walking distance), close by.
Not too far from the airport or the centre of the city.
The room was excellent, you could easily live in an apartment this size!!! There was a well stocked, separate kitchen with a door to close it off, and also a separate bathroom. There was also a large area for the beds, and lounge and dining area. Plus, free parking outside the room was a bonus.

This motel is only a short drive from the Airport and even closer to the City centre. The Manager was very friendly and welcoming on our arrival and gave us all the information we needed on local amenities.

The room was clean and spacious with a well equipped kitchenette - everything we needed including fridge, toaster, microwave and electric fry pan.

Cleaning staff attended every day - often not the case with apartment style accommodation - and they did a good job.

Thoroughly recommended - good location, price and standard of accommodation.

We stayed here after over 24 hours of traveling from the UK and it was everything we could have wished for; quiet, clean, spacious, well decorated, with a big comfortable bed with plenty of choice of weights of bedding, (very considerate when you don't really know whether you will be hot or cold), a good shower, plenty of surfaces to put things on, real milk in the fridge, easy to find from the airport, wifi, shady places to sit outside. Malcolm suggested where we might shop and eat and gave us maps and advice. He remembered us when we returned for the last night of our NZ stay 6 weeks later. We recommend the motel highly.

24 hours plus in a bus with wings is no fun and having done the trip myself a few times, I know exactly what it feels like. Here at Sherborne we know what people need at the end of it: somewhere clean and quiet to wash up and relax until you feel human again.

We were only here for a very short night before our flight the next morning. It was easy to find from the airport and not too far from the downtown area. The staff was very friendly and helpful in recommending restaurants and fuel stations. The room was clean and adequate for our short stay.

Thanks for your positive feedback. We have a good group of cleaners who try hard to maintain our rooms to a top standard and Linda and I always try to give our guests all the local info they need.

Our family stayed here at the beginning of our holiday. It was a perfect choice - clean, quiet and comfortable, a well equipped kitchen and nice bathroom. Malcolm and Linda were incredibly helpful after we discovered we had left our computer tablet behind. It was no trouble for them: they packed it carefully and shipped it to our next accommodation. It arrived safely. We are very grateful to them for taking such good care of us.

Room Tip: A nice, quiet location

It was no trouble at all, happy to help - I've had some personal experience of losing expensive items when I've been away. All I did was what I would've liked to have been done for me.

On arrival and booking in, we were greeted by Malcolm who was friendly and informative about the local area. The unit was very clean, and serviced daily during our stay which was excellent. Very comfortable, good location and quiet. Overall a pleasant experience. Will stay again when in Christchurch.
