About the fourth time I've stayed here. Just fantastic as usual. Annette bent over backwards to help us out with an extra room. Always friendly and they have the best beds ever. Wouldn't stay anywhere else while in Christchurch.

Hi Neil. Thank you once again for your lovely comments. Always great to catch up & lovely to meet your family on this trip. See you next time.

First experience of a Motel in NZ. Clean and tidy with comfortable queen sized bed but decor a bit shabby hence 3*s. Adequate space and similarly equipped to other Motels used subsequently. Good location and within walking distance of a supermarket. Owners were very helpful...More

The accommodation here is basic. If all you are after is somewhere to spend the night then you're in luck. I wouldn't recommend a stay of any length though. The rooms are clean although things are quite tight. The owner is very friendly and helpful....More

One of the worst places I have stayed. Old frayed curtains carpets minimal cleaning. Hot noisy. Hard old beds. Horrible. No soap minimal towels. Scary stairs to upstairs level. Powerpoints in all the wrong places. No room in the bathroom. You can't dry your hair...More
