    Very good

    My family stayed for 5 nights and we enjoyed the fact that we were not disturbed by staff or other guests, the unit was cosy and comfortable and the owners were very friendly and helpfull, I would not hesitate to stay there again. Thank you Brain and Katie :-)

    The shower was great!

    With advertising Sky, I assumed you would have Sports and/or movies, unfortunately this was not the case. I would suggest airing the rooms out due to arrival of guest as our room was very musty smelling.

    Location - near the centre of Christchurch. We also liked our first floor room with two balconies.Helpful young woman on reception.

    The spa bath was tall with wide sides -- making stepping in for a shower a little awkward and potentially dangerous. Provision of a non-slip shower mat would be helpful.

    Good location, allowing us to walk to town rather than having to drive. Helpful staff.

    Too loud, both from the passing traffic and the door-slamming neighbours. Some mould in the bathroom.

    Good

    Helpful staff, clean room, facilities were up to date.

    The only comment I would make was that you need to get your cleaners to remove the hair from the shower water exit as it is blocked and the water backs up in the shower when the tap is on. Unit 12. Cheers Tim

    Superb

    We stayed at this hotel primarily because we had to be at the Airport by 06.30 to book in for our 08.15 flight back to Sydney. I ws pleasantly surprised by the location in relation to easy acess to the city centre, and also very pleased with the spaciousness of our room and the facilities provided. It was a bonus to find that the airport was so easily accessible from this location.

    No complaints at all - we would be happy to stay again.

    No complaints

    Good

    It was clean and roomy and had everything we needed.

    Had two single beds pushed together and they were uneven - so not comfortable for a couple. There were things that needed repairing in ther bathroom - looking very tired. Could do with a paint.

    Good Motel near the city center, or whats left of it. Good starting pont for sightseeing in christchurch, the Airport bus leaves around the corner, so easy acess from the airport. Free w LAn might be a important thing for Internetholics. Would go here again.

    The spa pool was broken.Laundry not inclusive, 3nzd extra for washing machine and dryer

    The room I had was smelly as if it had not been aired out. The carpet had stains all over it. Price was extremely high for what was offered. I understand that this was short notice given to the motel but the room should have been up to standard before 1900. Mould was on the mirror which was not very appealing to the eye.

    Very good

    The position was very good for the easy access to the centre of Christchurch. (Poor Christchurch). The Manager(?) was very friendly and helpful.

    Carpets needed a clean and we were disturbed one night by late-night swimmers (3.45a.m. to 4.45a.m.) very noisy and obviously drunk!
