Hi, I fly in to work in Christchurch every week and have been staying at the Focus Motel for nearly three years so I guess I know the motel well. First things first, I find a great place to stay depends a lot on the hosts and the hosts at the Focus are diamonds. I have found Roy and Carol... More

Superb facility. The location is prime and safe, close to eateries and the city, and convenient. The room I stayed in was very comfortable and impeccably maintained at all times. The owners are lovely, and I found them to be polite and helpful whenever I needed to speak to them. I wouldn't go anywhere else if I was staying in... More

Spent two nights at Focus a week apart and had a very warm welcome both times from Roy, Carol and their staff. The rooms were clean, very comfortable and the motel is very well placed for the centre of Christchurch, with some wonderful restaurants and bars all within a 10 minute walk. There is no restaurant and a tray breakfast... More

When we arrived at the motel on our first day in New Zealand, we were greeted by a warm friendly welcome. The staff on reception (owner of the place?) was so enthusiastic and helpful. He knew who we were before I told him, he told us all the good places to go to in detail and led us to our... More

When I have to stay in Christchurch for work or pleasure I always pick Focus Motel. The owners can't do enough for you and very friendly. Rooms are always, clean, comfortable and have all the facilities you could ever need. Location is perfect right next to Victoria Street which seems to have a new restaurant or cafe every time I...

Roy and Carol were the perfect hosts for this centrally located ( yet private ) location. Upon our arrival, Roy checked us in personally and gave us a plan to enjoy our 1 day in Christchurch. It made all of the difference. The accommodations themselves were perfect for our needs. Large 1 Bedroom space, great amenities, ( coffee press!) and... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. Roy was very welcoming and gave us loads of info on what was open in the city and where to go round about for restaurants and bars. Our room was on the top floor with a small balcony overlooking the car park. It was very clean and comfortable and we didn't notice any noise.... More

Have stayed here twice now and every time the service from roy and Carol could never be faulted. The over and above service we have had both times is nothing we had experienced before both near and far. Great size rooms clean and tidy every time. looking forward to our next stay and have recommended you to friends and family.

Focus was my first stay in New Zealand and it was quite a welcome. The airline lost my suitcase for a bit and Carol & Roy were incredibly helpful with the situation - calling to help trace, offering laundry assistance for what I had in my carry-on, etc. The room was top notch and very good value for the money....
