The cottages are so quiet and you just don't feel like your in the middle in Christchurch. Nice and private, sit out on the deck and read a book! Bliss. Friendly staff who are happy to help. The laundry is free also which is great when you're traveling. Would highly recommend this place.

Changed hands since we were last here and the new owners are really nice. Nothing is a bother. Good central location with parking, easy access to other parts of the city. Quiet for a main road location. Units are clean and tidy and a good size. Always a pleasure to stay here which is why we keep coming back.

Like being in a park. Small private courtyard where the crickets were singing all day. Very clean and tidy. Comfy bed. Great shower pressure but small area for wet floor shower which spilled over toilet whilst showering. Quiet considering on a major road. Great friendly hosts. Loved our stay in number 11

Stayed at this motel for 2 nights. Had a group of more mature people. The new owners,Rodney and Rebecca, are absolutely awesome. Nothing was too much trouble. If you needed anything they were there to help. Carrying bags upstairs, getting the BBQ sorted, anything you needed help with they were there. The rooms are clean and tidy and you have everything you need. The newer rooms are lovely and comfortable. Will be back to stay here again and would recommend this place to anyone. Good luck to Rodney and Rebecca, keep it up and you will go really well.
