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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The couple who own and run this motor lodge are so lovely. They go out of their way to welcome you and help with anything you might need. The rooms are comfortable and very clean. The garden was in full bloom and the hydrangeas were stunning! I can recommend it wholeheartedly!

Spotlessly clean & comfortable accommodation with good bathroom & well set up kitchenette. Peter collected us from the airport late in the evening & drove us to breakfast & pick up our camper vans the next day. They couldn’t have been more welcoming , helpful & accommodating. Highly recommended if you are arriving at Christchurch Airport or exploring the wider Christchurch area.

An absolute gem of a motel. Do not give this one a miss. Peter met us at the airport ( last flight in) and took us to the motel. Super clean and comfy rooms, well equipped and all you need for a night or much longer. Rooms have a cute little patio onto a big garden area. We were picking up a camper the next morning and Peter dropped us off there after a delicious breakfast at a coffee shop he’d recommended. He and Tess work hard to make this a home from home. On top of that they are honestly the most lovely couple. You will be very, very happy you booked here.

Had such a peaceful and serene stay. The large grove of trees in the garden were in their autumn finery. The room was top-notch and immaculately clean, but it is the kind, wonderful hosts, Peter & Tess, that will see you returning again and again. The pride they take in their grounds, and the loving attention they lavish on the rooms let you know that their hearts and souls are invested in making your stay as pleasant as possible. Take my word, you won't be disappointed.

What a lovely place to stay! The grounds are filled with beautiful flowers. There is parking close to the door. The rooms are spacious and clean with comfortable beds. The unit has everything you need to stay for a few days, although we only stayed one night. I’d happily stay again.

Amazing. Absolutely lovely. Everything you need after a day out and about. Beautiful and clean with so many little things that you need and they're there. Little things like a long mirror, electric blankets on the beds and not just a jug but also an old school pot to make a proper cuppa in the morning. BBQ area. Check. Clean and tidy everything. And the effort that goes into keeping the grounds tidy and slick are noticed. Beautiful 👌 look forward to coming back tonight after another day out. Thanks Peter and Tess. You've got it going on 👍

So, read the sign by the door that says how to turn the outside security light off. Unlike us, we went to bed & didn’t see the sign until the morning. It was so bright, which meant a rubbish sleep. Shame because it was a lovely place, friendly and very clean. It is out of the way from places to eat, but was good for a quick exit in the morning for our long drive.

Peter, the proprietor was helpful, and so generous of spirit! You sense the pride he has of this wonderful place! The room was well appointed, modern facilities, and very well cared for. Gardens are beautiful… and well tended, again you can see the pride of ownership. Cleaning staff were wonderful and gave us options to dine out on our last night in New Zealand! Thank you to Peter and his staff! Highly recommend this one!!

Absolutely perfect- the owner or manager was so kind and super lovely putting us up at the last minute in a snug studio with a comfy king bed and kitchenette. All I wanted was to hear my soup and go to bed warm and I had the best nights sleep in ages. Warm, cosy and quiet! Would definitely come back if I was on business or passing through! Great value for money!
