Located in Redwood just down from the Styx Bridge and off the main road leading into Christchurch. Simple motel units that are comfortable and clean/tidy with all the basic appointments. The rooms all face the street and windows appear to be double glazed. Once the windows and doors were closed the road noise dropped considerably. A large shower with average flow is a bonus for the larger travellers trying to get clean without contortionist behaviours. We heard little noise from our neighbours in the adjoining units. We stayed in a unit that had two bedrooms, one with a double bed and the other two small singles. Both comfortable. This complex has immaculate gardens, all in colour at the time of our stay and well maintained. Ironically, I remembered staying at this

Thank you, Swinn, for taking the time to write such a positive review. Yes, all the windows facing the street are double glazed and once they are closed, it's amazing how quiet it is...minimal traffic noise. Our showers are a good size...we know what you mean by "contortionist behaviours" as we have stayed in motels with very small shower cabinets and it is quite a feat to wash oneself. We are pleased that you found everything to your liking and hope to see you sometime in the future...perhaps when there is another wedding in the family. Although, if it is in 35 years time we just may have moved on! Val and David

Needed somewhere to stay on this side of town. The gardens were impressive so took a look. I was my own and felt safe so that was important to me. Very nice people own the place. The kitchen is well equipped. I only used the kitchen for my evening drink and toast and cup of tea in the morning but it would be fine if you wanted to self cater. The bathroom was roomy and the bed sit area also roomy. Will stay here again.

Thank you JKLM2 for taking the time to write a review on your stay at our motel. We have many guests who like to self-cater so they are impressed with the cooking facilities each unit offers. It can get quite expensive "eating out" especially if you are staying for a few nights. We are pleased that you felt safe here and that you will stay again in the future. Val and David

We stayed there last week for a night with our two boys. The rooms were immaculate and very clean. Nice owners who took time to answer our questions and were very helpful. The gardens were very beautiful.

Thank you Linda for your lovely comments. Both our cleaners enjoy their work and strive to keep a high standard of cleanliness. The gardener maintains the grounds immaculately and won first place in a recent garden competition. We hope that you will stay again next time you are in Christchurch. Val and David

Stayed here for 2 weeks while working in Christchurch area situated in Redwood so location was good for accessing main roads. Friendly proprietors, room was comfortable, clean & well serviced, the gardens were amazing. Friendly proprietors. Free wifi was limited per day of stay. A couple of shopping malls located 5 - 10 minutes away.
