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.

I stayed here with my elderly mother for 3 nights in the penthouse suite. This suite has 2 large bedrooms, with the main one having an ensuite. There is also a second bathroom right next to the other bedroom. There is a large lounge, dining and kitchen area with everything you could need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay.

The lift up to the apartment makes taking luggage up easy. The suite also has a dishwasher, a great aircon (much needed on hot days as the sun pours into the room) and multiple TVs.

The motel is close walking distance to many great restaurants, a short 5 mins walk away on Victoria Street. It's also within a stones throw to the Christchurch Casino, Quake City and Christchurch CBD.

The secure parking is great and feels very safe, however the carparks are a bit tight, especially if you have a larger car. You just need to pick your spot carefully!

The host was very helpful with maps and asking if we needed to know anything about Christchurch.

I wouldn't hesitate to stay again and will be doing so next year.

We had a two bedroom apartment with a small kitchen ( in a tight area as you entered the apartment). It was comfortable and despite being on a busy corner, you could not hear the traffic. Well stocked with kitchen items; comfortable beds; very clean. The lady who was at the reception was very pleasant and helpful.

Focus motel is clean, comfortable and very well appointed. Wide selection of TV channels, microwave and utensils in the unit. Proprietor Roy is a nice bloke, welcoming, very helpful with local information and unflappable if anything should go awry. Not too far from the airport and close to the city centre. Recommended.

Focus Motel was an excellent choice for my recent visit to Christchurch. The unit was spotless and spacious and the owners were so kind and helpful. Added to this the location was ideal - walking distance to Hagley Park and to the centre of town (10-15 minutes), with several great restaurants also in the vicinity.

Great modern motel complex in the centre of the city. Easy access and parking, friendly greeting and explanation of nearby attractions. Rooms are modern and very comfortable, not the most spacious but in the city centre so more than adequate for the convenience of being in easy walking distance.

Arrived in town very early and Rory let us leave the car for the day while we walked the town and Botanical Garden. Chatty check in with same later with great recs for dinner and evening activities. Room quiet as a tomb, immaculately clean, pristine beautifully tiled bath with curtained floor shower soft towels and nice toiletries. Universal outlet for charging our shaver, rare in NZ. TV with plenty of international channels. Kitchenette with French press coffee maker, milk in the fridge, microwave, all you’ll need. Comfortable queen bed with top grade linens. 15 minute walk to everything. Ate across the street at Bog, the Irish pub and very pleased. Gated security after 9:30 pm with fob access. All at a very reasonable price.

We stayed here as a travelling party of four on a busy Saturday night. I called at 1 pm to see what time we could check in, his response was your room is ready come whenever your ready. (Certainly, not a response you get from other places) Greeting on arrival was extremely pleasant. Showed us to our room,places to go, where to eat etc. Room was spotless & beds were extremely clean & comfy. Only small criticism & nothing on the owners is, if we were there for longer the living room would've been a little cramped as the living space is quite small for a two bedroom apartment.
But I would definitely stay again no problems. Keep greeting the way you guys do, you are amazing.

We only had one night in Christchurch but were happy with our stay here. Clean, comfortable and a friendly welcome. It was close enough to the centre of the city and we enjoyed breakfast in a nearby coffee shop. Parking was allocated and there was a lift.

Focus Motel & Executive Suites went way beyond expectations and I find it hard to believe the review below. Read further down and you will see glowing compliments.
They lent us gear to clean our car and made our holiday a very enjoyable experience. If we need accommodation again in Christchurch this is where we will be staying. The apartment was spotless and in a walking down town location. Congratulations team on your friendly professional service.
