Last minute decision to head away for New Years and stayed here. Lovely host, clean and fresh. Air conditioning was amazing for the hot nights. Private outdoor areas. So handy to Riccarton Mall, we walked to dinner and Lime scooted home :) Huge spa bath, Sky with heaps of channels. From reading old reviews, new owners have made huge improvements, so don't read them.
Will definitely be back

Clean, comfortable, good service, really enjoyed the stay. Very quiet. I especially liked that the host had turned the heat pump and light on to welcome me. Will definitely stay again. Highly recommend.

We stayed here as part of a large group. Staff were welcoming and friendly and managed to process everyone fairly quickly, despite still learning a new computer system. Room was clean, warm and comfortable. Lighting wasn't too bad, which is saying a lot since most motel rooms have terrible lighting, and the water shower pressure was excellent! Room was at the back of the motel so very quiet, despite being on a busy road.
Good value for money.

This motel was reasonably priced, clean, well presented and had all that you needed in a motel room. The customer service was lovely.
It is in an easy spot to get in and out of and right on the route of the bus service.
If you have concerns about a motel not being fenced in this might be an issue for you but otherwise it’s as good as, if not better. than other motels in this price range (have to say I think Christchurch motels are extremely well priced) - I couldn’t fault it.
