This is a little place that has it all. Tidy, clean rooms. Very friendly, helpfull staff. Spa bath in room. A proper spa to use. Kids playground out the back with a zip line. It's 50m from the beach! Really can't say enough. The only reason it's missing the 5/5 from me is that the bed is too soft for my liking (but the fiancee gives the bed a 5/5). Perfect holiday spot. We will be back!

We had a nice stay at Charles Court Motel. While the complex is run down and in need of an upgrade, the room itself was quite modern and neat. We were able to park the car in front of our room which we liked and The motel had a walking access to the beach.

We stayed one night here on our trip back to Christchurch and although the room was a very good size, and had its own cooking facilities, the complex is very dated and needs an overhaul. Good facilities in the grounds for families with a playground and swimming pool and it is only a short walk to the beach. We had a lot of rain overnight and in the morning we discovered that there was a leak in the bathroom and the floor was covered in water, which just showed how much upgrading needs doing. But, we were very comfortable there and the owner was very friendly and recommended the local pub for our dinner, which was excellent. No breakfast provided, so we ate on the go.

We stayed for a single night on the way though to Franz Josef - we arrived with no expectations. We were pleasantly surprised by the size of the room and the facilities provided by the motel (Playground for the kids, swimming pool etc). A short walk down the the beach.

Great place for a short trip for the kids

The best thing to say about this motel would be to blow it up.How do you have a shower when there is no soap holder in the shower recess.Paper thin walls with very little privacy and it seems to be a place for very budget Accomodation .I wouldn't recommend it to my worst enemies.

Room Tip: Don't bother
