Tranquil Suburban Motel Tucked Away In a Leafy Environment

4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 17 Nov 2023
Liked · My wife & I have travelled to Christchurch for the New Zealand Cup Horse Racing Carnival in most recent years, since the Covid Pandemic wained.
The Ashleigh Court Motel is tucked away in a leafy, quite suburban street & the only traffic noise we heard was the Wednesday morning Garbage Truck emptying the Garbage & Re-cycle Bins but that noise only lasted a few minutes.
Last year we stayed @ a Motel on Riccarton Rd & it was a wee bit noisy. The lack of traffic noise @ The Ashleigh Court Motel is a real blessing, especially if you are a light sleeper.
We stayed in a 2 Bedroom Apartment which had a few stairs to gain access, however the apartment had all the facilities that one needs to be self supporting, the apartment even had it's own washing machine.
There is plenty of easy access Off-Street Parking so there are no "someone's taken our space" parking hassles.
Would stay @ Ashleigh Court again no problems, I even spoke to the Manager regarding the possibility.

Disliked · With all the serenity one might think all is perfect, however if you do not have a vehicle, you are staying in accommodation that is a 15 minute walk away from the shops @ Riccarton Mall & the Metro Transit Hub.
A minor hiccup was the Hot Water Pressure for the apartment's shower, but the peaceful environment makes up for a lack of a little water pressure.
Date of stay: November 2023
Room Tip: Expect a wee walk to Riccarton Mall & Metro about 15mins, if you are Back Packing
Trip type: Travelled as a couple

We stayed here as it was Pet Friendly. We had our 2 Bichon Furbabies with us .
Unit was clean and tidy, we were very comfortable, except no Air con, big let down.
Lovely surroundings and gardens. Not sure if the other units are rent out to long stayers, but they sat outside smoked and talked till early hours of the morning and then left in there car that was parked right outside our unit , Visitor policy is 10pm in most places, this needs to be policed.

Stayed two nights here and what an awesome place to stay was close to the malls and also St Georges Hospital was minutes away. The Owners are lovely very friendly and very helpful with places to go and things to do. This is going to be my motel when in Christchurch. The Beds are awesome.we had unti number 4.

Room tip: All units are lovely and unit 4 is tops.

Despite the attractive surroundings this motel has a dated 50s feel and the service was poor.
On discovering that the milk supplied was trim milk I went to the office to change it.
Nobody around all dark! It was only 9.30pm.

This is the first motel we have been to that had ONLY 2 cups in the cupboard.
Which means you have to wash them each time you have another drink.

On the positive side the shower was good.

We spent the night here on our way back to Wellington after spending a few days in Greymouth. The unit was dated but very clean and tidy. The only negative was that we were given Trim milk so it would be good if management asked guests what milk they prefer. Trim milk may be fat free but it does contain sugar, not good for a diabetic. Bathroom was very spacious, We had a very good nights sleep.
I highly recommend this motel.

Had 3 nights there in a one bedroom unit{room 7} at one end of the motel and as we had our bikes it was so handy to have a part of a trail in our street so we hardly used our car.as Christchurch is so geared up for cyclists just a shame about some of the walkers don't listen to a bike bell!
Everything about our room was fine with plenty of room and quiet as well and the staff very friendly so would definitely stay there again.
