arrived after a very short trip from the airport (much closer to Christchurch than I expected, property looks great with modern road appeal. check in by the host was a breeze, shown to a large studio than was modern light and airy. had a great sleep then a superb shower.
This place ticked all the boxes for us, excellent place to stay the rooms are lovely and well kept. Can’t fault the excellent customer service from the owners, they truely went above and beyond when our group unexpectedly had to squeeze in and extra nights stay. Highly recommended from us.
Nice modern rooms with a queen & single bed. Well maintained and they were cleaned well. No laundry facilities available. Good WiFi available. Parking onsite. Owner was friendly. We had a front unit & it was quite noisy so I would recommend getting a back unit
I spent 2 nights here while on a work trip. Friendly hosts, modern and comfortable. Lovely clean white towels and good bedding. Well equipped. Only one small negative was the bread supplied for breakfast was soggy.
When the ONLY positive aspect of a 3 day lodging is they supplied lots of clean towels...you know it's all downhill from there. Used booking.com for the first and last time for a motel room on short notice in New Zealand and stumbled upon Kaiapoi on Williams Motel near Christchurch. Looked like I was booking a room but accidentally (?) got booked into a house 2 doors down the motel owner let's out. Pictures on line made it look retro cool when in fact it was just old, broken down, shabby and sad. House looked to be built in 1950 and was last updated in 1951. Welcomed to a bowl of moldy food, dirty dishes and a half consumed community water bottle left by previous guests. Owner (Alan) came by soon after my evening arrival with the next mornings plate of breakfast food (picture a kindergarten sized faux juice box, container of milk and cereal along with 2 slices of bread in a Ziploc bag he took from his own kitchen. Total discount store value of $1.25 for which he charges $11 per person!). I showed Alan the disgusting conditions and of course he blamed his cleaning crew. He took zero responsibly as owner then got offended because I wasn't happy. Nice, huh? Anyway...this guy is a scammer. Claimed WiFi available and it is when the wind blows the right direction, maybe, sometimes. Tiny a/c unit in living room completely useless in the bedrooms. Not even a $10 box fan to help circulate the air. Open the windows? Some did open some did not. No screens so when you turned on a light every species of flying insect known to NZ invades! Final insult came when I wanted a receipt that he claimed he couldn't provide as he's waiting for booking.com to pay him!! All in all AVOID THIS PLACE!!!! Owner is a shyster and could care less about his guests. You've been warned! …
