Upon arrival you will find breakfast set up for the next morning. The free breakfasts of cereal, yoghurt and toast is a bonud for already cheap accommodation. This place is modern, clean, well appointed, quiet... everything you want when staying away from home. It is within waking distance of Northlands Mall and an easy drive around the city. I cannot recommend this accommodation highly enough. We will definitely stay again.

We have stayed at V motel a number of times on our visits to Chch over past year. Cannot speak highly enough about this motel. It is so convenient on Main North Road but also quiet. Parking onsite. Hosts are accommodating and very pleasant. The motels are new, roomy and immaculate and hosts are wonderful. Breakfast is part of the night rate, cereal, yoghurt and fresh toast and spreads. The service exceeds anything we have experienced around NZ.

Warm welcome on arrival, extremely helpful ,pleasant host who even offered to carry our bags up to our room. Our room was upstairs with its own balcony with outdoor furniture and a light sculpture which was very pretty. The room itself was large with lovely bedding and pillows, a leather couch and large footstool, kitchen, dining table and chairs (with bowl of chocolates), and plenty of bench and storage space. The bathroom was huge with good shower and quality towels. There was a heat pump/ air conditioner which was quiet, and a very large flat screen TV with you tube and Netflix as well. The added bonus here was every evening breakfast trays were delivered with cereal, toast, juice, fruit and yoghurt -all part of the room cost, no extra charge. This motel is exceptionally clean, large and the hosts are fantastic. We could not fault it. Add to this the location is within walking distance of shops, supermarket and restaurants. Highly recommended. Thanks for a lovely stay.
