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.

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 at Lorenzo for 2 nights in July 2022

Located at the Hagley park end of Riccarton Road it is close to Riccarton and the city centre.

When we arrived the room was warm and toasty with the heat pump going.

The bed was super comfortable and just right for a good nights sleep!

Having a Nespresso machine was a nice touch as we enjoy our coffee

We thought the motel was very good value and we wouldn’t hesitate to stay there again.

Located on Riccarton Road this hotel is surprisingly quiet. The rooms themselves are spotless and cleaned to a very high standard. The 1 bedroom apartment was a good size and very comfortable for a couple of nights. I didn’t use the kitchen area but it was well equipped for anyone wanting to cook a meal in their room and the bathroom is large with a shower over the spa bath. A really good motel and well worth the stay.

I would have been happy here. Clean and convenient ... although pretty much like all the other motels along Riccarton Rd. EXCEPT that I have just endured two nights of loud band music coming from a pub nearby. No sound proofing to filter it. A motel where I can't get to sleep because of location beside a music venue gets one star. Perhaps could endure it except no one likes classic rock played at loud volume ... no one!

Response from Small, General Manager at Lorenzo Motor Lodge
Responded 11 Nov 2023
Hi Dave, what a surprise you rate us only one for overall experience to stay with us. The music is out of control by us, we can't do anything about it, weekend always busy at Riccarton area, also Hagley park got music venue during the weekend, and you did mention about our clean and convenient,but only rate us at one star are a bit shock for us, we fully booked on those two days, you are the only one rate us such a poor score. Other guests they all happy stay during those 2 days and will come back to stay with us again. We didn't see you when you checked out, the only way I am thinking you may be a very very light sleeper.

I think the best thing about this place is the proximity to parks, shopping malls including a lot of restaurants. Since I didn't come by car, there is also a bus stop nearby with routes that include buses in many different directions, which made it much easier to get around. I'm glad I came in the spring, the flowers in the garden in front of the entrance were all in beautiful bloom and it was a pleasant experience. The cleanliness of the room was also good as well as the facilities and equipment.

I stayed 2 nights in New Zealand with my friends. The location of this motel is perfect. There are plenty of places to eat nearby, about a 10-minute walk from the Riccarton shopping centre, and bus stops are nearby, including a bus stop to the airport. Next door is Hagley Park. The motel was clean and comfortable, and the service was good. The owner was very warm and friendly and showed us the surrounding places and recommended good restaurants. Will stay again, and has already recommended this motel to others.

This is a nice motel. We had two bedrooms, shared bath, and a small sitting area. The outside courtyard table was a bonus. There is a small kitchen but not feasible for cooking a large dinner. There is also not an easy way to wash dishes. The location is great with many restaurants nearby as well as Hagley Park which is awesome for running and walking!

Just out of the city and well located for my business trip and in walking distance to the office. Room was spacious and has a lot of amenities. Might be dated but very clean and well maintained. Room off the main road so quiet. Bed was super comfortable. Table for diner if you eat in and 2 x single comfortable chairs to watch tv. Heater and aircon in good working order. Plenty of parking available.
