Cold damp foggy day

3.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 23 May 2019
Back of complex upstairs facing Riccarton Rd,cold room took 4/5 hours to heat up.wall heater was a non fan type,bathroom extraction fan didn't work,which left the walls and ceiling running in water from the steam of the shower.there is construction on a motel building next door which faces into the Riccarton mall motel,bedding was limited to sheets and a duvet,no extra bedding in cupboards,in the morning we were woken up at 6.00 by workers next door using a giant sanding machine,unit was cleanish but needed updating,a bit run down,very handy to the huge Riccarton Mall complex across the road and bus stops right at the gate,won't stay again though.😣😣
Date of stay: May 2019

On our trip to Christchurch we stayed at this motel for the night.
The owner is very friendly, helpfull and a pleasure to deal with.
The motel is directly oposite Westfield Shopping Centre which is a bonus.
The room was excellent with a large bed and a small bed in the room. A well equipped kitchenette, spacious bathroom and table and chairs to eat at.
Room was very clean and tidy with a heater that really heated the room.
The large fridge was an advantage to us as we prepared our own meals rather than eating out.
Very soft bed for those who like them that way.
OVRRALL VERY GOOD ACCOMMODATION AT THE RIGHT PRICE.

Room tip: Downstairs rooms at the back are great.

This place is very conveniently positioned to the mall which is right across the road. It is on the main road to town and not far from the airport. Purple bus goes right passed from the airport.

Quiet with parking. Friendly staff who offered more WiFi tickets if needed.
Rooms are a little tired but comfortable.

A very tidy and clean motel. Excellent location to the mall, grocery shopping and various eating establishments. Everything I needed was within walking distance. Great service and ver helpful staff. My only gripe was the low water pressure in the shower but did not have an impact on the charming motel. Would definitely recommend and visit again.
