Although Christchurch did not live up to expectations the Lorenzo was conveniently situated for both the City centre and the Airport. A 20 minute walk through the beautiful Hagley park to the City via the Botanical Gardens and a 15 minute bus ride to the Airport. Very comfortable if not spectacular!

We stayed here after flying into Christchurch airport on arrival in New Zealand. It was very easy to drive to from the airport. The room was a good size and well-furnished. The bathroom had everything we needed. The motel is pleasantly landscaped with some lovely roses at the front. There are also a couple of places to sit outside at...

Stayed here for business for 3 nights and the rooms are clean and contemporary with a comfortable bed. Location overall is pretty quiet and you hear little noise from the other rooms. Super friendly staff and price is good value for what you get. Definitely recommend.

Very comfortable room with a queen size bed in the bedroom and a single in the lounge area. Lovely shower over a jetted spa bath. Just enough room to not feel cramped with a tv in both the lounge and bedroom with many channels on offer. Lots of shops handy as well as a liquor store just across the road!...

Travelling with another couple and staying for three nights, we were checked into upstairs rooms 10 and 12. Our room was large, modern and very well appointed, with a small rear deck. Whilst our deck was too small for four people to gather, on the front veranda outside Room 12 was a table and four comfortable chairs that we made...

I booked the family room but was told 2 hours from destination they had a "plumbing issue" and the room wasn't available. I was given the available but much smaller unit. Sleeping on an uncomfortable bed in the living room wasn't my idea of a fun holiday. There was no apparent attempt at getting the family room fixed 9unless it...

We stayed here twice for a total of 4 nights and found both rooms to be of a very high standard. A helpful resident manager and her family / staff. Spotlessly clean, modern and very well equipped and the room with the spa bath (#12) was a treat for us 60 year olds. Road noise was noticeable at the room...

We have stayed here before and it was clean and tidy and we were happy with everything and thought nothing of it. Then we had a baby. We have returned and the Lorenzo Motor Lodge has been amazing. Suddenly we are really aware how clean and lovely it is. They provided us with a brand new portacot all made up...

We recently stayed two nights in a one bedroom suite. The unit was compact but having x2 two seater sofas meant we could both relax. Unfortunately there was a strong odour in our room and it would have been good to open the sliding door onto the balcony, but the people in the room below us were smoking outside and...
