“Awesome experience!!!”
Reviewed 30 May 2014 via mobile

Stayed at Feed Motel this easter holiday. The motel staff was very friendly and helpful. The service was great. I had a room at the back of building which was vert cosy and quite. The room was just refurbished. Contiential breakfast was bit simple, but the price was reasonable. Highly recommended, good service along with good price.

Stayed May 2014, travelled solo

Stayed here for one night, Had no idea what it would be like in the New Christchurch after the quakes.. I found the motel a little far from the City Centre. Not that clean and smelled funky.. Staff were friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: Rooms at the back are quieter

Not a place I would stay at again. Bed linen was soiled (Laundry contractors fault apparently), fridge hadn't been wiped out from last guests and we found some kids socks and a filled salad roll under one of the beds! Water pressure in the shower was poor and cups were chipped. For the price I would have expected better. Friendly staff though.

Room Tip: Don't accept room 5, very outdated and musty.

We would stay again but parking off the street is very cramped.
And we could easily hear the guy in the next unit snoring.

The bedding could do with an upgrade. However, having said that I slept well and that was about all the really mattered.

Ferry Motel was the best of about 10 different hotels we stayed at on a recent Kayak tour throughout New Zealand, ending in Christchurch. And, it had affordable rates of $120 per night. Recently upgraded, nice bath rooms, and lovely garden, clean, helpful and friendly staff, plenty of towels, a rarity for NZ. Owner operated shows in customer service and hard work. We liked this place so much, it is the only place we will stay at in Christchurch, should we go again. Keep the bathroom door closed when showering, or it will set off smoke alarm. Very small inconvenience for such a nice place.

The service is pretty good. The place is outdated which i don't mind but they could use better beddings (the bed cover thing really put me off), better plumbing system (toilet is super noisy when you flush - room #2) and better cleanliness. I found some hairs and stain on the bed sheet. :( oh also found a small bug in the bathroom to add in to my nightmare.
Chose the place due to very limited choices on that day throughout the city (did not know if there's any special occassion on that day)
