    Shower was pitiful. Disappointing water pressure. Not enough milk for two guests, either.

    Comfortable. Very quiet despite being on a busy road. Pretty garden. Warm. Plenty of linen and blankets

    There was water running down the roof onto our entrance way into our room, which saturated the mat and we were wetting the vinyl and carpet I told the person in charge and he said he knew of the issue and not worry about wetting the carpet as he will get it cleaned when we left. There was no offer of another unit and the motel was not fully booked.

    First room we were put in had a really old kitchen, some dirt around the floor, especially around the fridge, two big holes in the wall, a hole in the bedroom door, no blinds on the kitchen window (open to the neighbor) and - personal dislike - a wardrobe mirror opposite the toilet.

    Staff was very helpful in organizing another room as the first room we got didn't come close to what we had booked. Second room was much more up to standard (standard according to the website and cleanliness), although it was quite a small room.

    New beds! Ours was very uncomfy.(got to a point I tried to sleep on the floor) And our sliding door was hard to move. But plenty of blankets and pillows. The gardens need some work as well.

    How close it was to horn castle arena and how nice staff were when we got there. Realized they go the extra mile to say hi to people coming in late too which is awesome to see.

    No hot water for a shower, had a freezing shower. Parking was hideous. Place was musty and not aired regularly. I though $125 was steep for this accomodation, although it’s 2 bedrooms it wasn’t well maintained to warrant that end of the scale for one night.

    Three beds, queen, 2 singles. It was quiet.

    For us the situation was great, maybe a little closer to the city.

    This was an ideal spot for us as we were within easy walking distance of the AMI stadium for the rugby! There are shops and bars well within walking reach. Town centre around a 30 minute walk, but on the flat. Friendly staff, plenty of room in the unit with a kitchen and bathroom.

    Given the price of this motel we were waiting for the catch - we didn't find it. It had older style construction but was redecorated with new furniture. The bathroom could be described as retro with low pressure hot water but adequate. The heaters were on when we arrived and there was a panel heater which kept the room warm and a fan heater for faster heating. We decided that we would be returning.

    This was a wonderful retro experience. The bed was very comfortable and the setting was like time had stood still. Everything was clean and tidy and the location was in a suburb close to the CBD (but a car was necessary to get to Christchurch). The receptionist let us into the room a little bit earlier which we really appreciated. Quiet location, independent units and good value. overall. Free WiFi and on site parking a real bonus
