What a motel should be

5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 6 Aug 2018
I was fortunate enough to select the Tuscana for one night before heading to Australia back in June. This motel is well priced, very very clean, quite and well maintained. The room was large and well appointed. The owner (I'm sorry I can't remember her name) is a lovely person and look after me very well. I will be staying here again.

I was given a ground-floor room. A good room for those with disabilities (large shower, handrails - but toilet roll holder and towel ring have been placed slightly too low).
Clean, but several things need to be fixed. The bathroom window wouldn't close properly; the carpet was fraying; cupboard doors in the kitchenette scraped on the floor. The taps on the bathroom vanity are too small - could do with an upgrade to a mixer tap, especially given water can be very hot.
I found the room quite noisy (there was a somewhat redundant ticking clock and the fridge shuddered regularly) and very light, even with the blinds and curtains closed.
Travelling for business means I like to have wifi - yes, it's free, but it's per device (hopeless if your aren't travelling alone) and drops out a lot.

Booked a 2 bdrm unit for our family and advised our usual late arrival - it’s never a problem here as it can be at other motels.
The heater and lights were on in unit 4 , so nice to arrive to on a chilly winters evening.
The Tuscana always has consistently high standards , so clean and comfortable, extras we enjoy are the plunger coffee, morning paper and tea selection.
Despite being on busy Bealey Ave, we have never been disturbed by traffic noise , so apart from other guests , it’s peaceful and a great nights rest is guaranteed .
Thanks very much , highly recommend.

We are staying here tonight and it is really nice. Room was a great size, comfy bed, and awesome facilities, however I did think it came with in-room laundry facilities but it didn’t.
Good location within walking distance to the city and great restaurants

I was in Christchurch on a business trip so caught the early flight in. We arrived well before check-in had even begun, and we were greeted and checked in easily. Upon check-in the man behind the reception was super friendly and was giving us heaps of information about things to do and places to eat. We asked for directions to our conference venue, he wasn’t 100% where it was but gave us a round about idea. At check out time he asked us if we had found the venue easy enough as he had walked about the street location to find it himself incase we struggled. Room was nice and warm, very clean. Only fault would be to update your website photos, they make your great motel look old and not very good inviting. This is 100% not the case!! Would recommend to everyone who is staying in Christchurch. I will be back on the next trip.
