“Great location. Nice, clean and comfortable room”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 January 2014 via mobile

We had unit 7 with the spa bath. Well worth while. The unit was very comfortable and the host very good. The location is great and just a short walk to a good cafe, de spa chocolates and just a big further along to the Merrivale mall.

So pleased you were happy with your accommodation, thank you for your comments. The De Spa Chocs are great and so is the Metro Cafe, we are fortunate with our location. - Jocelyn

My work takes me to many countries throughout the world, I found in 2013 this accommodation to be up there internationally for cleanliness, lovely staff and the rooms are very comfortable.
My next visit to Christchurch in July will most definitely be the Milano Motor Lodge.
Thank you so much Jocelyn and Murray . . . Loved it - No complaints from me!

The hotel is beautiful and the location on Papanui Rd is excellent - 5 minutes walk to Merivale Mall, 10 minutes to the city and close to many restaurants. The rooms are modern, very comfortable and extremely clean. Lovely bathroom and good kitchenette. Jocelyn and Murray are perfect hosts - very helpful but not intrusive. I had 5 weeks staying at Milano and I can honestly say I was sad to leave. The roses are magnificient.

We were delighted to find this family operated facility to be maintained in the most tidy fashion. The US hotels could take a lesson from the friendly hosts. The rooms are large but the beds were only queen sized. The kitchenette was well appointed and a flat screen TV in both the living room and bedroom. Dealing with a shower curtain in the jacuzzi tub was a bit of a nuisance and make sure your room is well back from the busy street.

I have recently started a new sales role that requires some travel from Auckland to Christchurch, I was fortunate my company booked my accommodation with Jocelyn and Murray at Milano Motor Lodge in Christchurch, the rooms are well appointed and spotlessly clean and it is a pleasure to return to after a day on the road, the little touches of a small chocolate on arrival and biscuits in the rooms is also appreciated as there are times when meals have been skipped, the bed is so comfortable I sleep better at Milano than I do at home. I have since stayed a second time at Milano and I would not stay anywhere else in Christchurch

The hotel is beautiful, the location is fantastic right near shops, restaurants and the centre of town. Free DVD's to keep you entertained and the place is really clean. They even help with scales for weighing your bags before heading to the airport!

Thanks for writing the review we do appreciate them and also enjoyed your family group staying with us. Our location is a plus especially as the city rebuilds as most things are located handy in Merivale. We'd love to host you and your family again. Jocelyn

I have been staying at Milano for numerous years and don't intend to change while Jocelyn and Murry are here. It is nice to know that in the Winter the unit will be lovely and cosy. The units are of a nice decor, Spotless and good quality linen.
Jocelyn and Murry make you feel wellcome but aren't intrusive. Last trip my car battery was flat and Jocely dropped me to my first appointment and then attended to the AA servicemen. Nothing is too much trouble.
