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.

I booked this through booking.com. After check out, I get a message saying that we were not welcomed back. I replied, asking for an explanation, as we have stayed in many places, from motels through to resorts, and have NEVER had an issue. He refuses to supply this, saying I need to ring if I wanted him to explain further. If it was a legitimate reason, then an emailed explanation should not be difficult. There are PLENTY amazing places to stay in Christchurch, with superior service, that are less expensive.

The rooms are spacious and very comfortable. We had friends come round and there was plenty of room to hang out. The motel is convenient for so many activities in Christchurch. We will definitely being staying there again. It is close to Merivale and easy to get to anywhere else.

This would be the best self catering property in Christchurch, we've ever stayed at. Fully equiped, oven, cook top, microwave, fridge & freezer, heat pump, washing machine & dryer (in every unit), beside unit 1 is a clothes line. Great beds, electric blankets, wardrobes & draws in bedrooms. Beautifully clean & serviced every day. The only thing it doesn't have is a dishwasher, but we don't miss having one. Quality furnishings. Free Wi-Fi & over 50 Sky channels on a large TV. Very quiet & pristine. Great host. Wouldn't consider stay anywhere else. Just the best. We stay often.

Rang to see the rate which was $170 per night & when I asked if there was any flexibility on that the older man hung up on me!! My hubby rang back & he wouldn't answer! Anyway I rang him back & we stayed three nights. The man was still very pompous but the unit was great. Lots of hot water & good shower pressure. Reclining chairs were fantastic as was the washing machine & dryer. HUGE bed!! Lots of tea & coffee choices but very skimpy on the toiletries for a 5 star motel.

We have stayed in this motel twice now and wouldn't look anywhere else. It is clean, very well equipped and extremely comfortable. It was very quiet and close to the city. Requesting an early check-in was no problem even though the unit we wanted was occupied the previous night. Will certainly stay again.

We stayed here a couple of times on our trip South. We booked an apartment which is at the back of the complex. It was clean and tidy and had a full kitchen and laundry. It was very quiet (no road noise) which we like. It is walking distance to Merivale Mall and a number of eating establishments. The only downside was that the Wi-Fi was pretty much non-existent in our apartment. They also have a tiny gym - we didn’t use it but good if you want to work out.

Walked in and got a room with no prior booking. Staff were friendly and helpful. The room was spacious and had a large spa bath, a nice shower and good cooking and eating areas. Nice comfortable seats and a large TV. Only slight downside were the outside lights were bright in the car park and stayed on all night.

Nice spacious rooms for an apartment and the Spa Bath was a great size. Beds very very hard, but the soundproofing was great. Carpark is very tight especially with all the big cars that tend to stay there. Was great to have a washing machine and dryer in the room, especially when travelling

We had a flight cancellation and Jetstar provided overnight accommodation. What a surprise to find this accommodation so close to everything we needed and every comfort provided for including the biggest TV we have ever seen in a Motel unit. Huge spar in bathroom, plush lounges and study desk with a beautiful kitchen set up and top of the range washer and dryer. Best of all, a very comfortable king size bed! Not sure of the price, as It was paid for by Jetstar but we were certainly impressed by the whole experience and our host was extremely helpful.
