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.

Situated directly opposite the Riccarton Mall, the motel provided everything we required for a one-night stay. It wasn't a large unit, but it was clean, well-equipped and ideal for us. Car parking was easy too and even though the motel is on a busy road, it wasn't difficult to enter and exit.

We arrived at our Motel and were greeted by a very friendly man at reception. Our check in was seamless and we were shown to our apartment. The apartment was a two bedroom with a kichenette. It was quite compact but very well appointed and extremely clean. The beds were very comfortable and the apartment was very quiet considering we were on a very busy road. It is situated directly across the road from Riccarton Mall so very handy to shops and places to eat. I would happily stay here again without hesitation.

Location - Just opposite to the largest shopping mall of Christchurch, Supermarket, Restaurant and shops around within just a minutes walk, off-street complimentary parking space provided
Good service, easy check in and check out, the host seems to be Chinese, easy communications.
Everything inside the room is good enough, We like the bathtub, it would be better if the bathtub can be provided at G/F.
Highly recommended.

Im never one to complain or leave a review. But YUCK! One night accomodation here, and one night too many! Absolutly disgusting!!! Dirty old furniture. A shower you cannot work. Unclean sheets! Unclean everything! Horrible old bed with springs poking out.
The lack of service from staff is dismal - when all we wanted was a shower!
And to think we paid $200 for this! Absolutely disgraceful!

Located across the road from the mall and close to nearby eateries.
Free parking onsite.
Rooms were amazing! Very modern, clean and had everything we needed for our stay.
Beds were very comfortable. TV had a great selection of channels & streaming sites.
Everything is very well labeled and organised.
I would definitely recommend this place

Many would agree that $140 NZD per night for a studio room in Christchurch is reasonable. I must say upon arrival all things indicated to an enjoyable nights stay. The young man who greeted me quickly showed me to my room and to my surprise the room was ready at 12 noon. Unfortunately things went down hill from that point on. The room smelt of an overpowering " stale cigarette smell " even though it was said to be a non-smoking room. I had a meeting to get to so I left my overnight bag on the bottom of the bed and did not return until later that evening. I started to see the true state of the room - cracked seal in the fridge, dirty and torn bedside table lamps stood out. When I sat on the bed to take my shoes off ... I noticed a sock ? That wasn't mine laying at the base of the bed. When looking for a power point to charge my phone - I found what I believe to be the most shocking discovery ... 2 very badly frayed electrical wires connected to the electric blankets. I moved the bed slightly to remove them from the sockets and to no surprise I then discovered a damaged wall behind the bed itself. This is my first real negative review on tripadvsior and my intention is not to scare away any potential clients from this motel - it is purely to raise to the proprietors attention that you can not expect guests to pay for a substandard product that has many broken facilities and requires immediate attention.

I made the mistake of pre-paying for 2 nights before arrival..... this motel is NOT up to average standards... let alone `luxuary`. The Queen bed was terrible ; extremely soft hence roll together was horrific, resulting in no sleep. Generally the room looked tired, only had one sofa chair, so the second person had to `relax` on a hard dining chair. The studio was cramped and had terrible condensation. A towel draped over a tray of mugs and plates is not acceptable in a $140 room. This motel was full of Tradesmen and as a budget basic long term single mans stay would be fine. However this is not a tourist or holiday destination. It is way overpriced.
The only positive was that it was across the road from the Mall

This place is very tired - it's been a long, long time since it's had a facelift. The carpet was stained and although everything seemed cleaned, it's age made everything feel dirty. Beware of the 70's scifi shower - not really sure what that's about...? We chose this place because we had only one night in Christchurch, and we wanted to eat at the Fox and Ferret - it was close by, but I would rather have walked further and had a nicer, more modern room elsewhere. It was extremely noisy all night because there is a 24 hour McDonald's across the road. I would have preferred to shut the windows and use the airconditioner, but there wasn't one. Disappointing.
