Stayed just one night passing through. A nice little motel, rooms a little small and the cleaning fluid smell is almost overwhelming. A bit far out of the city but ok for 1 night.

Warm, Friendly owners Bob & Ngarita made all the difference after a 36 hour journey from the UK. Their advice & help were invaluable, their motel so clean and comfortable, a gret start to our NZ tour.
A reasonably new motel, what sets the Addington Stadium Motel apart is the great service provided. Nothing was too much trouble, - the Manager even brought in our washing when we were late returning one night! Spotless units, good quality linen, well equipped full kitchen. There is a small supermarket directly across the road, which greatly helps if you are self catering. We were delighted and would definitely stay here again.
We chose the Addington Stadium Motel because we were on our way to Akaroa and well situated for proximity to banks peninsula. We felt so welcome and our room was exceptionall y comfortable with no traffic noise whatsoever. A real find in Christchurch.
We had two nights at this motel, the owners were very friendly offering advice and generally sharing themselves around the guests.
The facilities excellent, would stay again in a flash, beautiful and clean.
Handy to where we needed to be, lovely bathroom and a good bed, which is essential.
Really ample parking space too.
We stayed here based on previous reviews and the need to get quickly to the Trans Alpine train in the morning before 8 am.
Despite being on the corner of a very busy road, we didn't hear any traffic noise from inside the motel room - windows were closed and it would probably have been a different story if they had been open).
Electric blankets on the bed and a wall heater, plus bath with jet bubbles made for a very cosy stay. The pillows and bed were very comfortable. Everything in the room was immaculately clean, and Bob and Ngarita were fabulous and friendly hosts.
We got a free ride to the station the next morning in very good time to catch the train.
For those wanting to use buses to get to and from the city, buses number 7 and 77 are the ones to take or else it is about a half-hour walk from the city centre. I managed to book this motel studio room for $5 less on wotif.com than any other booking website (including the motel's own website).
