short reprieve for birthday

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 17 Jul 2020
booking and confirmation were a breeze, no complicated questions or insecurities. after arrival we were aware that we had received a free of charge room upgrade. the room was nice, clean and complete for our stay. The room had a king size bed and the room is fully double glazed and with a heat pump to get as comfy as we liked.

The owners are very friendly and helpful. even after we told them we had a little accident and spilled coffee on the carpet he wasn't angry but kept his cool and cleaned the carpet while we went for a walk.

To make this story not a never ending story. we like to thank Leon and his wife for the hospitality and the service. also we would go there again in a heartbeat.
Good place to stay. FYI, we spend two nights here and enjoyed all of it.
Date of stay: July 2020
Room Tip: we had room 6, very quiet even while the laundry is adjacent.

Disabled parking handy to unit and room in unit for use of small Travel scoot Friendly hosts breakfast available if required. Very quiet unit and great blackout curtains. Good rubbish/compost systems in place, too!

My wife and I stayed three nights in a very comfortable, well-equipped room. Everything was neat, tidy, and thoughtfully provided. The host, Leon, was extremely gracious. The location was only a 10-minute walk to the heart of Christchurch, and we found that a fantastic Indian restaurant on the next block.

Room tip: We loved Room #9 -- upstairs towards the back and on a corner. Nice and quiet.

Owners here are truly lovely. They were very accommodating when I needed to stay an extra night without notice. The room was great with lots of space and everything you’d need like a fridge, microwave and lots of dishes and cutlery. Really quiet for sleeping and had black out blinds too. Highly recommend if you’re in Christchurch.

We were in Christchurch for a concert at the town hall and this motel is very conveniently located for that. The welcome is warm, plenty of information and guidance is given, and the motel unit itself was very very nice. Very clean, well provisioned, and with a decent bathroom. The motel also looked after our bags the next morning after we had checked out. I don't think you could go wrong here.
