Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Have stayed here most times when in CHCH, and the Metropolitan never fails to deliver excellent standards.
This time was no exception.
As well as covering the 101s of accommodation service, this business goes above and beyond. Right down to putting bottles of water under all the cars in their carpark, so when you wake up with a frosty windscreen, you have water right there to clear your screen.
We had some laundry that we did on sight, and popped down to the mall, just 200m away. The owner said they will put it in drier for us. On our return our washing was not only dry but waiting in a basket at our door.
The cleanliness is so good, I saw one of the staff sweeping up autumn leaves that had blown off the street into the carpark. Most places wouldn't worry about such small things, but the feel at the Metropolitan is, what else can we do for our customers when we have taken care of the big issues that affect your stay.
You will get a great sleep here in comfy beds, and service that you won't even see, that is being done behind the scenes, so you can get on with your business or holiday.
Thanks once again Metropolitan.
One last thing, I had initially booked, then Covid hit.
Metropolitan did not hesitate to refund 100% of my payment. Air NZ could learn a lesson here. So as soon as we could travel we re-booked with them.

This motel is located about 200 m from Westfield shopping centre with ample parking .
Our room had a queen size bed with a kitchenette and bathroom with spa bath . Superbly clean and well thought out with a small microwave , fridge , toaster and plenty of tea , coffee , hot chocolate and butter cookies . Utensils also included scissors and can opener. A pair of tongs also available . There was no stove .
Wifi was very fast . TV shows included Netflix though the TV could be bigger .
The bed was very comfortable and we had a great night sleep . There was also a heater both in the bathroom and the bedroom.
Will definitely return .

The room was clean, comfortable, & exactly what we needed. Central to everything, we barely used our vehicle. The Owner was lovely, nothing was a problem. Awesome shower & spa bath in our unit. The bed was made each day when we popped out, towels replaced & dishes washed. We will definitely return next time we visit Chch. Thank you!!

The townhouse is an actual townhouse located behind the motel. You can reach it by walking on a path behind the motel or driving around. It feels like having your own home in Christchurch. The place is very spacious and a great deal. It is less than a five-minute to from the Westfield mall.

The hotel manager did it all, from checking us in to answering questions to even cleaning the rooms. This is surely a sign of the times, with workers so hard to find, and I was really impressed with his service and attention to detail.

Marco goes the extra mile to make your stay so comfortable. He had put the heater on for my arrival which was so appreciated on a chilly winters night. Handy location with off street parking and shops nearby. Always clean, comfortable accommodation and happy to recommend.

We recently stayed for 3 nights on a girls weekend away in a 2 bedroom apartment and we couldn't recommend it more!
Very well appointed room with each bedroom having TVs and electric blankets.
The service was outstanding. Great communication for our late arrival & daily service in the room. So nice to come back after a long day shopping on a cold day.. to your curtains pulled, lamps on and heater going. Can't wait to stay again. Thanks so much!

I had messaged the motel the previous day to see if we could get in a little earlier and in fact they said we could have the room from 11.30! We had a 2 bedroom spa suite. The rooms were all clean as was the kitchenette. The one thing I didn’t like was no sheet or cover on duvet in main room. Would recommend.

Great location. Super clean. Even got 6 set of high quality coffee and tea plus proper milk (not the cheap stuff I see in most motel), plus a couple of yummy short bread. Friendly staff. Our flight was delayed. Macro just prepared the room for us to help ourselves that night. He also let us check out late to catch up the mush needed sleep. Highly recommended!

The Metropolitan Motel is in an ideal location. A stone's throw from Riccarton Mall & close to restaurants & bars, this motel suited the wife & I just fine.

My wife is a "Shop-a-holic" & being near the biggest shopping mall in Christchurch was a real bonus. As for me, we were a few kilomrteres from Riccarton Racecourse & Addington Raceway.

That's the main reason we stayed in Riccarton was because of the New Zealand Cups in both the gallops & trots

As it turned out we were closer to all the action than if we stayed a few kilometres away in Central Christchurch & the cost of Hotels/Motels is a lot cheaper in Riccarton than Christchurch CBD .

So if you want to be on a guaranteed winner stay at Riccarton. Couldn't fault the Metropolitan Motel, parking at door, close to shops & Racecourses

Title self explained .

Left my toothbrush case there, nobody call me after finding it. When I called back, the person answered the home telling that will call be back. After three hours , I have to call back to find out.

They have discarded into rubbish bin, then they suggested me that they will find it in rubbish bin. It is ridiculous, it is a toothbrush case. Can I used it after that?
