We enjoyed our stay . We found the service very friendly and accommodating. The facility is very clean . The units have air conditioning. This motel is situated close to most facilities. We will be back to stay here . We did the Tranz Alpine train while in Christchurch. The motel staff took us to the railway station and picked us up after the train trip . Great value here ! Wifi is slow !

Rafiq was a wonderful host and made us feel like we had been welcomed into his home. He made sure our arrangements were settled and our trip would be smooth. The pick up to and from the train was great. Even the cat must have done the "kiwi host" course!

Easy self-checkin outside normal hours. Cheerful hosts. Free shuttle to railway station. In fact, host waited 30minutes at station for our arrival by train. You don't often get that service with a smile. Comfortable bed and warm room. Thank you.

Stayed here Anzac Weekend because of the location to the Crusaders Stadium. The friendly service will bring me back here. The room was nice with comfortable bed, nice heating, two tv's with Sky and free wifi. The shower had a good flow of hot water, better than some other places that i have stayed. When the opportunity arises the Arena is my first choice, until then I recommend this to anyone.

A nice comfy room upstairs. Welcome card and chocolates a nice touch. Warm welcome by staff. Close to rain station but to far to walk with a bag - free Shuttle to train station in morning. Gave recommendations for places to eat within walking distance. Thanks,
