Convenient location between airport and the city, close to Hagley Park, shops and restaurants.
Busy street, so a little noisy.
Good motel and good value for money
Walking distance from city
Wifi is not so good Parking far from rooms
Within walking distance of parks, Merivale Mall, city centre
Great location for us. Free wifi. free paper. Friendly helpful staff.
Within easy walking distance of central Christchurch, lots of interesting cafés and bars to check out nearby
Wifi down for our entire stay, bathroom in need of renovation/freshening up
I found myself in CHCH after my partner ended up at CHCH hospital. It was late on Saturday night and I needed accommodation at short notice. I booked on line and phoned the motel owner. Despite being late in the evening (10.15pm) she was courteous and welcoming. She gave me my room number, left the room light on for me and put milk in the fridge. I was super grateful for this warm hospitality after what had been a very long day! Thank You I really appreciated your non judgemental acceptance on the phone especially given the late notice. We will stay again and would recommend to anyone :)
Very accommodating staff. We were allowed early check-in which was very helpful.
The room smelled quite strongly of fresh paint, which was a bit harsh. Price of the room was a bit high for a middle of the week stay.
Very helpful knowledgable staff.
Staff were great,really helpful, nothing too much trouble. Plenty of parking, not too far to centre. 5 minutes walk from Hagley Park where we saw the new year in. Sailing distance to museum approx 15 mins, all the tour buses go from there.
The Wi-Fi didn't work. A bit pricey with no breakfast.
bed was really comfortable. quiet. room was tidy and clean.
we were stay 4night. we could use wifi only 5min in 4days. very poor connection. i asked owner,she said "keep try". hopeless. kitchen didin't have enough tool. shower,,,,super low pressure.
Proximity to Christchurch CBD. Tariff was low. Receptionist was friendly and helpful.
Traffic noise. Kitchen facility was small. No stopper in bathroom sink.
very, very small bathroom at time of our stay there was no internet working
The owner is such a lovely lady and went out of her way to help me so much.
Close to the city, clean rooms
Shower cubicle was a bit treacherous.
The room was well organised. Everything was easily accessible the lady I dealt with was lovely. Everything was extremely clean and tidy and very comfortable
There was no sink to wash the dishes in unless I used the bathroom sink which I thought was a little strange. Other than that no issues at all!
The ease of making an Internet booking was very good. It's central location made my visit very easy.
Very tight parking.
We arrived late to a lovely lady on reception and stayed in a lovely studio. The bed was amazing we had such a great nights sleep
All good. Just what you need for a short stay. Nothing fancy but all working properly without any problem
Friendly greeting on arrival, clean spacious apartment with everything we needed for our 2 night stay. The road was a bit noisy but otherwise we enjoyed our stay.
The host was perfect and made our stay most pleasant. The kitchen had a good array of tea and coffee and was very clean. The location though won us over and is within walking distance of the city centre. The kids enjoyed the multi-device free wi-fi too.
The bathroom floor was a bit treacherous as it was very high and a touch slippery.
Close to shopping area
the light is a bit dim
lovely friendly staff, nice and clean
What a great experience , the lady on the counter was so helpful and friendly and was so for the whole weekend.The units were very clean and everything worked. I would definitely come back here.
Maybe a bit noisy from the busy rd but hey there were many events on that weekend so understandable.
