I was pleasantly surprised when we got to this motel. It was really clean and the rooms were stocked and modern. Great kitchen, huge bathroom and free wifi!!!
The staff was great. So friendly and helpful. Being a small motel though no one is on staff after I believe it was 7pm which was tough for a pair of night owls. Still there were a couple of great places to shop and eat nearby. City center was within walking distance. Unfortunately when we went, Christchurch was still kind of a ghost town. Not much to do because the earthquake the year before decimated the city. Still a lot of rebuilding needed. The Merivale area is lovely though.
The only issue I had was the bed in the room. Whoever stayed there before had some bad BO and it lingered. That was the only issue with our stay. Febreeze is all that wouldve been needed to fix that situation. No big deal. Everything else was top notch.
