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.

Stayed here recently and the accommodation was great. Older motel units, refreshed, very clean,roomy and good sound proofing (couldn't hear the neighbours )
Owners friendly and helpful. Excellent location on main road expected it up be noisy at night but it wasn't.On a regular bus route which is a bonus. Nearby parks for a morning stroll out if traffic. Great motel great spot. Love that you can bring your canine.
All in all excellent.

Lovely owners, very friendly and helpful. Nice unit for a family of four . Had every thing we needed.unit was very clean. Double glazed windows so no road noise which was important to us.
Happily stay again and was only $150 for four people so excellent value! Close to shops and buses too.

This is our second visit as a family to this motel and it was as good as the first.
Owners are lovely and nothing was a problem. Room was big and had everything we needed. Comfortable bed and super quiet even though it’s on a busy road. Double glazing makes it very quiet. This is definitely our go to in Christchurch and good location and price.

Found is accommodation very good! Donna and Gary were very friendly and have the room had everything we needed. Beds were super comfortable and plenty of room for the 5 of us. The location isn’t far from many restaurant options either.

Would recommend!

We stayed here 3 nights & highly recommend it. Very clean rooms. Donna was very helpful & understanding - this was not a holiday but a sad trip. We had ‘family unit’.
The outside seating at front & back was very handy & pleasant.
Thank you Donna.

Very basic motel unit but just ideal for our short stay in Christchurch. Rooms are small and relatively clean. Towels supplied each day but rooms not services. Ok for a short stay whilst in Christchurch

Getting any kind of hotel in Christchurch is very, very tough since the earth quake. All of the hotels in the area share a reservation system, so if you find someone nice they can tell you who has availaiblity. We got this one within 10 min of someone else cancelling a reservation.. yes it is that tight. Room was very clean.. but it is a 1-2 star experience.. I don't recommend staying anywhere in christchurch for long.. go outside the city if you have longer stays in mind. This is a very nice place.. but not somewhere you want to do anything but sleep. Just 2 weeks prior a family had been living in our unit for the last 12 months.. wow.. that is tough.

I searched internet for suitable motel which had a bath (as I have arthritis). Also, on wotif this place was advertised with inclusions of: "excellent & sunny quiet room. Enjoy a drink on the balcony & watch the world go by" We had a downstairs small unit, no outside area, no parking outside. NO BATH. When I went back to the office the guy there didn't really care at all & did not offer any alternative. That is why I am writing this review. The stairs to the upstairs rooms was right outside our room so it was noisy with people going up and down. This property is right next door to a 24hr petrol station. The curtains in the unit were thin & didn't reach the floor, so lights came into the room during the night. The price on Wotif was actually higher than the "rackrate" if I'd walked in off the street. I don't think this is good enough for trusting travellers/bookers.

Room was perfect size for family of 4. Facilities were ok as we only had one night. There was no milk for coffee which was a shame and there was some debris left on the patio set outside. WE only required one night as our plane landed late and were not able to pick up camper van until next day so it did the job.

Travelled to Christchurch from the north island for hubbys rugby game, the kids & I arrived early and had requested an early check-in which was no hassle for the owners & was at no extra charge.
On our day of arrival I received a phone call from the owner saying they were thinking of upgrading our room to the deluxe unit which was a pleasant suprise & a lovely gesture!
I had a little hickup with funds which i explained to the owner & she was more then happy to allow me to stay & cover the left over cost when our boss had paid hubby & i (we stayed for 3nights, paid $300 upfront & the last $70 when funds were sorted)
Our room was warm, clean & welcoming. Beds were comfy & cosy, double in the main area plus 2 singles in the bedroom.
Shower was strong & hot with a heater in the bathroom too.
The kitchenette was roomy & fully equiped for me to cook our meals. Lovely quiet room with access to a play area for my kids through our back door.
Their customer service was beyond friendly & welcoming, i felt very welcome & appreciated as a customer. Parking right outside our room & close to all the essential stores etc.
I definitly will be staying with them again when we return to Christchurch next.
Overall i was extremely pleased with the service & our room. Their service made our stay in Christchurch so much more enjoyable.
Thankyou Northcote! 😁
