“Great stay in a 'different' motel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 November 2013

We stayed for two nights at this wonderful motel. This place has got a very personal touch, which made it very different from the typical motels we stayed at in New Zealand. The very friendly owner made it a great, and very personal stay. He was very welcoming, gave us some good recommendations (about Christchurch and the route to take towards Lake Tekapo) and welcomed us with a Heineken (because we were already away from home for so long). The cottages look brand new, clean and very comfortable. The city centre is only a couple of minutes drive away. Absolutely the best value for money in Christchurch. Don't miss it!

Due to needing temp accomodation for 6 adults and two dogs during EQC repairs, Phil offered our family a townhouse on Geraldine Street. Extremely comfortable, spacious and mod. We had everything we needed, Phil is extremely friendly and down to earth, thoroughly enjoyed our stay, highly recommended, thanx.

My husband and I stayed there because it was a ground level motel. Earthquakes. It was reasonably priced as well. Very clean, would recomend to anyone.

Room Tip: One back off the road.

Accommodation was very spacious and clean with friendly hosts who gave us lots of information of local facilities and attractions. The Continental breakfast served to our room was an added advantage. Would certain go again.
