We were happy with the room, it was cleand and tidy. We unfortunately left a charger cord in the room we stayed in and didn't realise this until we arrived home. We live 6 hours away from christchurch so we can't just pop back to get it. We called the motel straight away and asked them if they had found our charger which they said that they had. I asked them if they could courier it to us and would pay the shipping costs for them to do so, which they agreed to. It had been 5 days since I had contacted them with no sign of our charger cord and no charges have come off our credit card so they obviously havn't sent it. I e-mailed them instead of calling as there was a bit of a language barrier over the phone the last time I called,so thought it may make the communication easier to understand. It has now been a week with no reply from them. I can't think of a reason why they would want to keep a charger cord that is no good to them. We are very disappointed that they havn't kept to their word. I would urge others to be careful to never leave anything behind.

Room basic and clean by the smell of cigarette smoke was sickening. I did complain and he gave me a can of orange room spray. That lasted all of 5 seconds. When I woke in the morning I felt quite ill.

Clean and comfortable - I very much appreciated the older style, large units - and the owners were very nice people. Stayed in large studio and then a two bedroom unit when my family joined me. Nice decor, good room servicing. Chose the place as near to Canterbury Uni & the rates were reasonable. Convenient to supermarkets and food outlets.

Comfortable, older style motel unit, but at short notice was very acceptable and much appreciated. Owners are lovely, very accommodating and even brought fresh garden flowers into our unit when servicing which was a lovely touch. Tip to fellow travellers, book direct when making reservations (not through booking.com), as the booking.com commission is put on top of the reservation price. :)
