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.

Ground Floor and great base to explore Christchurch without being right in the heart of the city. The rooms are dated but they have everything you need, the couple running the place are lovely and helpful people. Nice and clean rooms, fairly large as well and great water pressure and short stroll to either the city in one direction or the shops and restaurants and cafes in the other. Was a great stay and would recommend.

What a perfect place to stay. Beautiful ground floor self contained unit with a private sunny area out back. Close to transport, easy walking distance to restaurants and a very adequate shopping centre. Thank you Karen and Alan.

We stayed for three nights while visiting friends in Christchurch. The rates were really affordable and rooms were comfortable with everything we needed. The location is great - across the road from several good restaurants and close to a Westfield. We didn’t end up walking into the city but it wasn’t too far if we had. Owners were very accommodating of our need to check out at 4am to catch an early flight. Only criticism is that the shower curtain was too short which meant the bathroom floor got very wet

We came to Christchurch for two nights, then returned after two days away. Chose to return to Roma because of the prettiness of the place and its location. Hosts were amazingly helpful and went out of their way to offer suggestions in their city. It was a very sweet find!

I stayed at Roma on Riccarton for over two weeks on a work trip. Mark, Lynne and Jill were lovely people who were always friendly to approach and talk to after a long day of work and travel. The amenities (TV with Netflix, clean kitchen and bathroom) were excellent and modern. Most importantly, the bed was super comfortable. I would definitely come back for work or a holiday!

Two Bedroom Apartment was absolutely fantastic! Previously stayed at another property but by far Roma on Riccarton was the best! Very close to everything and really quiet even though property is on the main road. Excellent value for money and will definitely stay here again :) Thank you Mark for being an amazing host!

Rooms were tidy and had all the necessities for a week long stay for work, beds were comfy with lots of pillows, spa tub was a hit. Close to many amenities, restaurants everywhere, walking distance to work. Mark at the main office was very friendly and happy to assist with anything. It would be nice to come back sometime.

For a single night's accommodation for work, Roma on Riccarton is great. Everything you need, comfy beds, handy location, friendly staff. Great price. If what you're after is affordable clean accommodation. This is for you. Just don't expect anything "extra".

Thanks for the nice review, pleased you found our complex top notch and everything you needed. There is plenty of extra, great food, cafe's, shopping malls and much more all within walking distance. Not to mention our Rooms and what we offer in them. Perhaps on your next work trip you could let us know what "extra" you would have liked? If we are missing something we like to know. Look forward to seeing you again. Regards Mark

After staying at a few ordinary, impersonal Christchurch motels, we've made the Roma our go-to motel in Christchurch. The rooms are just presented so lovely, clean and comfortable. Mark, Lynne and their staff do a top notch job, and are very warm and welcoming. Lots of yummy food options across the road, location suited us as not too far from the city or the Uni, and Riccarton Mall great for shopping. Also quiet rooms considering on a busy road. We'll definitely stay here again next time we visit Christchurch.
