“These are really nice people who run a clean, quiet, first-class motel.”
Reviewed 14 March 2010

When we need a motel, we look for a good location with rooms that are very clean, very quiet, and decently priced. The Ashleigh Court Motel in Christchurch was just that -- a quiet neighborhood, lovely garden, spotless room, and a really comfy mattress, all at good value. Now add in the extras: the dishes and utensils useful for a little meal prep, tea (for me) and hot chocolate (for my husband), and the little container of cookies and the bottle of milk left in our room that tasted so great at 1:00 in the morning when we finally arrived from the airport (no problem with late arrival). But beyond all of that is contagiously friendly Steve who was such a delight to chat with, get travel advice from, and have translate any quirky Kiwi terms we were scratching our heads over. I mean, here’s the kind of guy who is happy to come out after dark to point out the Southern Cross in the night sky for a couple of northerners, or help curious tourists spot a little nocturnal hedgehog in the garden. Thanks Sue and Steve –- you are really nice people and run a first-class motel.

Sue and Steve couldn't have been more helpful. Organised a Taxi for 6 of us to go and see Cliff Richards. Helped us with ordering our meal and advised us of a great place for breakfast..
The accommodation was just great, quiet, spacious, spotlessly clean, an amazing shower, everything you could ask for.
Will stay again that is for sure.
Thankyou Sue and Steve

We would like to thank Sue and Steve for their hospitality, friendliness and help during our short stay in Christchurch. The Motel is in a lovely setting close to the City Centre, local shops and parks. The arrangements that Sue made to celebrate a Birthday were excellent and will always be remembered. Many thanks and if we are ever in Christchurch again we know where we will be staying.

Our two-night stay was excellent. Steve was extremely helpful in advising us on where to eat and giving us vouchers to help with the cost. Sue was most concerned when we had a slight medical problem and did all she could to alleviate it. The room was spacious and well appointed, and the breakfasts were large and wholesome and beautifully presented - well woth the $10 charge. Two very freindly hosts.

We stayed in a two bedroom apartment on a Friday and Saturday night. The apartment was a good size with a spacious new bathroom and comfortable beds. Although the buildings aren't new, the furnishings and decor were modern and comfortable. The motel is surrounded by lovely residential homes in a quiet established street, all within walking distance to local shopping and a 30 minute walk to Cathedral square. We would definitely stay again, thanks.

We stayed with a 9 month old for 3 nights in a studio apartment and the best thing about this motel was the hosts, Sue and Steve. Nothing was too much trouble, and Steve provided us with plenty of information on things to do and see around Christchurch. The location is good - very close to parks as well as several restaurants on Riccarton Rd within 1km (although the apartments have a kitchen if you want to eat in). Its a nice quiet motel, that is well looked after and we would definitely stay again in future.
