Just the right place for a couple of nights at the end of a road trip. Christchurch itself was very quiet but I gather it was a holiday weekend. We enjoyed the museum and it’s environs as well as the Botanic gardens

We stayed at this motel recently and were very impressed. Our unit was lovely and clean and had everything we needed. The motel is well placed within walking distance of the city centre. We arrived mid-morning and were really pleased when we were told that...More

Very clean and tidy. Big room, with everything we needed. Great location, easy walk into the cbd. We checked in late without any difficulty. Nice and friendly staff, nothing was too much to ask. Would definitely stay here again.

Stayed here at the beginning of our two week trip around the South Island. Located in a great location, 5-10 minutes from the centre of the city. Lovely customer service and lovely room. Had everything we needed including wifi. Would stay here again. Thank you!
