We stayed here for two nights after taking the train from Greymouth. The motel hosts provide a free shuttle from the station to the motel which is in the Christchurch suburb of Addington. Train was 90 minutes late in so the supermarket next door was handy for some beers and it's only about 15 minutes walk either way on the Lincoln Road to places to eat (but don't leave it too late as they empty out by 8.30pm !!!)
Rooms are good, free unlimited Wi-Fi and lots of TV channels. Tons of hot water and a decent quality shower.
Hosts were really friendly.
Since the earthquake when most of the city centre hotels had to be closed, accommodation in Christchurch is a bit limited and mostly in the areas not badly damaged by the quake. Addington is only a 15 minute bus ride into town or a short cab ride.
I would stay here again if we ever get back to Christchurch.
