Guest reviews

  • Older travelers

    the receptionist was extremely helpful in advising us on how to explore the south island

  • Older travelers

    We were very pleased with our apartment and the friendliness of the staff. There was plenty of information available about Christchurch and the surrounding area. The laundrette served our needs.

  • Older travelers

    Convenient location that was not too far from city centre, with a range of eateries around. Bed was a bit small. Easy to get to from airport.

  • Family with children

    They place was organised, friendly,helpful, and the traffic wasn't too noisy on Saturday night. for it being so close to the main road.

    There was an air freshner that came from somewhere in the room. The scent is toxic to those with sensitive noses. The room was fresh without this artifical cover-up.

  • Older travelers

    The staff at check in and check out were very friendly and the rooms nice and tidy.

    No towel rail, heater or ventilation in the bathroom, so I think winter wouldn't be that pleasent?

  • Older travelers

    15min walk to center of city. Just a 15min walk to the suburb of Merivale with a supermarket Fresh Choice and several restaurants and a big Tavern The Brewers Arms(all of which we discovered by accident) on Panpanui Road. I wish that info was available at the motel.

    30min($3.00) minimum for the computer.

  • Older travelers

    The motel was very convenient and clean

    The traffice noise was a problem at least 3 emergency vechiles with sirens heard during the night and the curtains failed to block out the outside light.
