“Staff always on lookout to make stay more pleasant”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

We were upgraded to one bedroom suite prior to arrival, and the owners and staff were consistently helpful, friendly, and efficient. Extras included free newspaper delivered daily, well equipped kitchen which included a new pack of ground coffee everyday! the location was quiet, and free laundry was a great added bonus. Will definitely use again at our next stay. We also noticed it was the only motel around the area that was always full throughout our stay... Good sign!

We were booked into this motel for Easter. On arrival we were given a run down studio apartment with a grotty looking bathroom, rusted microwave and a jug of milk in the fridge that could have been there for days!!! We told the owner we were not happy - he showed me two larger rooms which he wanted $170.00 for so we told him we were leaving!! He refused to give our money back - finally agreed to credit one night back less the wotif commission that he would be charged as it "wasn't his fault we changed our mind"!!! Somehow he cancelled the refund on the eftpos machine and we have had no refund at all!!! We are absolutely disgusted!! We would not recommend this motel to anyone!!

I stayed there for a few nights while I was in Christchurch. It has parking which is very convenient and is reasonably close to the airport (important since I had flow 24 hours and usually drive on the other side of the road). It was very walkable into downtown Christchurch and had a few cafes and restaurants nearby. The rooms are big and have everything you need. Not elegant but does the trick. The staff was very nice and tried to accommodate my very early arrival (9am). No complaints but nothing fancy.

We have stayed at numerous hotels and motels, but never before have written a bad review, or had anything stolen. We politely reported an expensive aftershave stolen from our locked room, and we were made to feel like we were making it up or had mislaid it. The managers just looked at us blankly, and the cleaner made us feel like we were imagining it. There was no apology, neither did they care that someone had entered our room and been through our drawers and bags, and left them open. It was as if they just didn't care! The room was damp and smelly, but we never complained. We came home with all our clothes smelling like the damp room. We chose it because it was handy to the city and walking distance to our conference, but it wasn't worth the tariff, and wouldn't recommend this motel to anyone else. Would never stay there again, because of the way we were treated by the staff.

Room Tip: wouldn't recommend it at all, but especially not the rooms right down the back of the section in...

Proprietor may not intend to, but comes across as rude, belittling and dismissive.

Parking good, simple location to find.

Room had dated but wholly functional decor and fittings. Primary issue was the lingering smell. Room in general was musty but the bathroom had a deeper stench of body odour and drains.

Unlimited wifi welcomed.

The devastation in Christchurch makes getting accommodation in the CBD almost impossible. This great little place is just outside the main CBD area, but certainly within walking distance.
The room was clean and well maintained. It included fridge, kitchen sink and a hotplate cooktop.
This was a great option at a reasonable price.
Though the state if Christchurch city at the time made finding dinner difficult. but there was luckily an Indian restaurant a block or two away.

Reviewed 13 January 2014

Our 2 night stay at courtesy court was at the end of our 4 weeks in New Zealand. We had unit 1 which was a 2 bedroom apartment. It was clean and tidy, there was adequate space for us and our 2 tall teenagers. It is not flash, but it was perfectly fine for 2 nights. Apart from a bit of paint peeling off the walls here and there, it was reasonably well maintained. We appreciated the small jug of fresh milk left in the fridge ( although it was only enough for 3 cups of tea!). Most other hotels we stayed at only provided UHT milk which we do not like). We walked into the central city and back from this location with no problems, so I don't think a car is absolutely necessary. There is a milk bar (called a dairy in NZ) nearby as well.
