“Affordable hotel - but away from city center”
Reviewed 21 May 2009

I stayed in a one bedroom apartment on the first floor of the Aotea. The units are quite spacious and the place is extremely affordable. You are provided a tv, micro, gas, etc and the one bedroom unit can easily accommodate 3 people. The staff was also quite helpful with suggestions on how best we could utilise our 1 day in Christchurch. Only drawback - The motel is kind of far from the cathedral area and hence taking your car to the city center might be required.

Reviewed 28 March 2008

Our room at the Aotea Motel was spotlessly clean and comfortable athough our 2 bed apartment was a little small for the 4 of us - but there's so much to see and do in the area that we were out and about so much that it wasn't a problem. The kitchen facilities were fairly basic - 2 ring hob, micro and fridge but fine for what we needed!

It was a 15 - 20 minute walk into the town centre but we walked along the River from the motel which was quite pleasant and avoided alot of the traffic!

All in all - we enjoyed our stay at the Aotea motel - certainly good value for the price and the owners were friendly and helpful.
