Perfect for an overnight stay. We were picked up from the station in the evening and taken to the airport the following morning which was really helpful. The room was clean, comfortable and well equipped.

We stayed here twice on our trip in 2 different rooms, very comfy little spot. Owners were extremely friendly and accommodating. Airport transfer was a bonus no taxis needed. Will absolutely stay here next time in NZ.

We stayed only for a night before flying out of Christchurch, and this motel was perfect for our family of 4. Spotlessly clean, super friendly staff, close to the airport and comfortable. Thanks to team who allowed us a late checkout when our flight was cancelled. Highly recommend.

We stayed for one night on our trip. Room was dated but clean and tidy. Bed was comfortable enough. Shower was small. 3 star place that gets a little higher rating as the communication was good because we needed a key left out as we didn’t arrive till near midnight
