We arrived late (8pm) & was greeted by a very warm welcome, as the heater & light were left on for us. Ping also left us a lovely welcome note. We've previously stayed here & again can't fault the motel. The room has everything that you would expect for a 5 star motel. It is spotless, spacey, warm, bright & location is perfect for the mall, restaurants & bars.

We stayed 2 nights. The bed was very comfortable and the room of a high quality. Very clean with good staff. The laundry was excellent and next door an excellent Dux restaurant. We are already planning another visit from the north island for a weekend it was so good. We stayed in 8 locations on our south island trip and this and one other stood out. Great stay!

We often come to Christchurch and have never stayed in this motel before. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The studio unit was roomy, clean and well-appointed. The staff were friendly and polite. We'd stay there again.

I choose to stay at Lorenzo when i travel to Christchurch for work, and would not stay anywhere else. Spacious well appointed rooms tastefully decorated and maintained with thoughtful care and attention which makes it feel just like home. Very friendly and welcoming host who genuinely cares about the comfort of guests, even defrosting my car window this morning after a heavy frost!

As expected. Very clean and quite comfortable with two generous couches. We had the two bedroom unit. It was warm and far enough from the road to be very peaceful. Really there was nothing to fault and reasonable value for money

We arrived mid-afternoon after a three hour drive with high expectations, we weren’t disappointed. Ping had upgraded our room to a 1bedroom with spa tub,it was roomy,efficient and clean. The mini- kitchen,the spacious bathroom and separate bedroom were cozy and welcome. Located close to several good rated restaurants and a liquor store(for beer) we opted for wonderful take-out eaten at the dining table in our room. Next day we explored the park area and a few of the areas local stores and pubs. We were very impressed with the Lorenzo and would highly recommend it to travelers looking to recharge their batteries. Travel doesn’t have to always be stressful!
