We booked 219 on John's due to it being in perfect proximity to the airport and because they have the wonderful service of storing your vehicle on their grounds for a week for no charge for e.g if you are going on the plane, or picking up a motorhome and travelling on. The location is also very handy to all of Christchurchs major attractions. From initial booking through to check in were all smooth and the service was very friendly and welcoming. There is a small playground for the children with bbq picnic area and laundry facilities which we well utilized during our stay. Our motel room was spacious, comfortable and quiet with easy parking right at the front door. The beds were comfy, and apart from the conservatory which had considerable mould through it, the rest of the unit was clean and tidy. The down sides, I found the rooms to be a little dim when it got dark, another lamp or brighter bulbs would easily solve and the heater was inadequate for the size of the room too so staying in cooler months overnight it wasn't all that warm. We could have used some extra basic home comforts like a hair dryer etc that the room didn't come with. Otherwise we were quite happy with our accomodation and would recommend to travellers for their stay.

as always our self contained tourist cabin was very clean and tidy. it was a cold wet day and it was warm and cosy. The shower pressure was great. the staff were friendly. and we were happy with the cost. Only thing i would suggest is to maybe put a sign at the goynes turn off so guests know where to turn off the highway. we will be back to stay.

Stayed here upon arrival into Christchurch. Chose to stay here as it was close to the airport for an overnight stay, before travelling around the South Island. Cabin was clean and compact, but had everything required for an overnight stay. Value for money. Hot shower, comfy bed and heating. Would stay again.

Awesome place to stay before our holiday. They stored our car while we were away. Arranged the shuttle to take us to the airport and collect us on our return. Great units, very clean and great price too. Friendly staff. Definitely stay there again.

Friendly staff!!! We stayed for one night in July in a self contained chalet, the room was lovely and warm, we woke in the morning to a heavy frost and had we had no idea until we looked out the curtain. Rooms were lovely and clean and we had a well set up kitchen(more than we expected), the beds were comfy, and the shower had strong pressure. would definitely stay again!
