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.

Had the pleasure of staying here last week and as a family it was perfect for the quick one night stay we had. Will def be coming back. Hosts were very accommodating and even had the heat going in the room as it was a cooler night when we arrived. You will not be disappointed.... quiet, comfortable and modern. See you back in November:)

As was the case last time on arrival at the motel you felt very welcome. The unit was very comfortable, with large rooms so you feel like you are home away from home. The kitchen area is great and you have plenty of room to spread out in the lounge and relax. Everything was very, very clean. We will definitely be back there again

We were attending a family wedding at Tai Tapu, so Lincoln was a perfect spot to stay, being only a 10 minute drive away. The Lincoln Motel is modern and clean. We stayed in a studio unit which was spacious. It had a very comfortable King bed, a couple of comfortable armchairs, dining table & chairs, a kitchenette and separate bathroom.
The hosts were friendly and helpful.
Everything you need is within walking distance to the motel ... cafes, bars, convenience store, Post Office, gift shops, pharmacies.
Excellent place to stay!

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights at the Lincoln motel. I had cricket meetings at the NZC High Performance centre at Lincoln University over the weekend. The unit we were allocated was ideal for that purpose being a 1-bedroom unit with cooking facilities. The location was perfect for the 2 of us, being very close for me to attend the meetings and for my wife to walk through the village and take in some of the history plus indulge in coffee and muffins in the nearby shopping complex. The unit (Room 20) had all the required facilities for a comfortable stay, very clean and well presented. The hosts were very friendly and went out of their way to help us. As an example they allowed my wife to stay in the unit until midday of the Sunday check out until my return from the cricket meetings. Very much appreciated. We couldn't speak more highly of the unit and the facilities. Many thanks.

Our stay at Lincoln Motel was excellent. Very friendly & welcoming!
The bed and pillows were extremely comfortable. Our daughter slept on the roll out bed and it was also very comfortable.
The motel is well situated in the Lincoln village with lots of food outlets/shops nearby. Will be making sure we book there again.

Clean & modern. Very quiet, being off the main road. Well appointed with good parking. Friendly hosts with real milk, not those horrible wee thimble things.
One thing I would love to see in every motel unit in the nation is a full length mirror. When you're a lady, going to a function, you want to see how the dress and shoes look. Also, a separate mirror in the lounge or even cupboard, means hubby can use the bathroom mirror to shave while I preen myself. They are around $20 from The Warehouse.
Overall though we had a lovely stay at Lincoln Motel and would definitely stay here again.

First-timer here. 3 nights.
One bedroom Apartment (rm12) upstairs near front by road. No problems here!

This motel is fantastic! Right in the heart of Lincoln, Christchurch. So much to offer around you. Dairies, eateries, supermarket, all sorts. It’s extremely well appointed.

Lovely decor, comfortable super king bed, all very super clean and reassuring. Linen and towels great. Lovely supply of teas, coffee and we were even asked what milk we like prior to our arrival! Hosts are really super friendly and super helpful.

We stayed here as location is close to where we needed to be. Brilliant find for us :).

Motel is about 20 minutes drive from Christchurch city, if you have a car it’s worth staying here instead of city itself. A home away from home. Would definitely recommend and we will stay again next time. Happy to not look for anywhere else.

Would recommend this motel. Very helpful staff and room amenities very good.
Plenty of space for 3 people and you could stay very easily for a week if you wished to cook for yourself as well.
Good system worked out if you are going to be a late arrival.
