Had a great stay here. Owners were so nice and accommodating and nothing was a problem. We were allowed to keep our bags there past checkout time which was very convenient for us and kind of them. Room was fantastic with plenty of heaters and spacious. Thanks heaps and we will be back to stay another time.

We stayed 5 days over Christmas 2019 in a two room suite and enjoyed ourselves. The hosts were friendly and were always picking things up, keeping the whole place immaculate. There is a laundry which I took advantage of. Quite a few families there and their children played with scooters and ride-on toys in the central parking area. Plenty of parking too. The whole place was surprisingly quiet and I think the hosts kept an eye on anything which might become noisy.

This motel is very clean with friendly owner and good location for university and Riccarton area. However I found it very cold, it has only one quite small heater which didn't warm the area up enough for me. There was also no heater in the bathroom.

We arrived well before check-in time, the manager was only too happy to let us check early which was great. Convenient parking. Convenient location. Clean & comfortable. We had a little trouble using the stovetop & unfortunately the wifi kept dropping out.

Stayed here last year too. Visiting our kids at work and uni. A good standard average motel. Clean and easy and affordable too. Heater was on and room was warm upon arrival. Bed comfy, shower good and hosts friendly. On busy Riccarton Road but not too noisy and handy location. Thank you, will stay here again.

This hotel has lovely big, clean rooms. It is only about 25 minute bus ride from the airport. The bus stop is about a 5 minute walk away. It is also only 15 minutes walk either way to pubs and restaurants. There are also a couple of take-aways directly opposite. All in all, I was very happy. I do not know where the bad reviews came from unless there have been drastic changes to the property.

This has been our third visit over a number of years, and our 2 bedroom apartment was excellent, we were close to rail, airport, Riccarton Mall, the city, Hagley Park. Comfort was good, parking was easy. Probably no longer the flashest place in town, but still really good, and an excellent place to stay, By the way, heaps of public transport past the door all the time.

After a ferry ride and long drive from Picton with my three children, we arrived at this motel and were welcomed into our room by the lovely owners. Both were very hospitable and accommodating with our late arrival. The room was a great deal and had modern amenities. Would not hesitate to stay here again. Thank you.

We arrived a bit late but the hosts were very helpful and friendly. Rooms are comfortable and spacious and were perfect for the one night stay we had for a business trip. The location is convenient and central.
