Very comfortable and spotlessly clean rooms with everything you need. Superbly located for the Tranzalpine and Coastal Pacific trains. Owner Phyllis goes over and above with the free drops off to the station at 6.30am/7.30am in the morning - all delivered with a smile on a dark and chilly June morning! I would definitely recommend Tower Junction motel to travellers to Christchurch. Thanks Phyllis.

Hotel's Favourite
A very friendly and welcoming visit from the proprietor. She was a delight to talk too. Room was lovely and well appointed. Complex is right on a busy road, but didnt hear anything, and slept soundly. Very close to Train Station and the Riccarton Mall, and also not far from airport. Will definitely stay again

I stayed or three nights and had a fantastic stay. The motel offers great location to both shops and the transalpine. The rooms are modern and very comfortable. As a solo traveller it is always a pleasure to have a great host during a stay in a new city. Great hospitality , great location and a comfortable stay.

We stayed for 2 nights and chose this motel as it was close to the train station, for the TranzAlpine . It was clean and comfortable and the owner was very helpful. Great to see within walking distance of shopping mall and restaurants. We hope to do another trip later and will stay here again

The room was clean and nicely furnished with parking directly out the front of the unit. The motel has a very reasonably priced guest laundry and good fast internet. However the host makes this place a cut above the rest as she even got up at 6.30am to give us a free transfer to the railway station to catch the Coastal Pacific. Great service and highly recommended.
