Spent here our last night in NZ before flying back to Europe. Perfect location close to Hagley Park on Riccarton Road. But although Riccarton Road is a busy main road, room was quiet and calm. Downstair rooms have charming small "patios" in the back with table and chairs for outdoor sitting. Big well furnished rooms. Knowledgeable and friendly receptionist (owners...

We booked two rooms for a single night here and wished we could have stayed longer. Rooms and toilets were spotless, all utilities were working fine and there was milk in the fridge :) For those staying here, you must try Cafe Sismo- it's across the road and serves absolutely awesome all day breakfast. There are also many other food...

I don't write reviews but having stayed a night at Lorenzo Motor Lodge i just had to share how impressed my partner & i were. I can't fault a single aspect of the hotel & would have happily stayed longer. The service was exceptional, the room immaculate & we were within a 15 minute walk to the beautiful Christchurch Botanical...

Mike and Mary make this stay special. Come in as travelers, leave as friends. Helpful tips for the traveler, central location to enjoy CHCH by foot or car, speedy internet, milk waiting in the fridge for our first morning early coffee. And some nincompoop (me) left his shaver in the room, travelled to Twyzel only to be tracked down by...

Lorenzo Motor Lodge is in a perfect location for exploring Christchurch. It is in walking distance to Hagley Park, The Botanical Gardens and The Canterbury Museum. There are also shopping and dining options nearby. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The lodge is 15 minutes from the airport and a 5 minute ride to the train station.

Hands down, this is one of the friendliest places I've ever stayed. Mike and Mary are both exceptional hosts, and the Lorenzo Motor Lodge is a perfect place to come home to after a day out in Christchurch (or a long international flight). I stayed in room 10, which is amply sized, immaculately clean, and very comfortable and quiet. The...

My wife and I spent one night at Lorenzo Motor Lodge. The staff was friendly. The rooms were clean and nicer than we'd expected based on other places we'd stayed in New Zealand. Our only complaints were the lack of air conditioning (it was hot while we were there) and having a handicap room with a wet shower (booked late)....

We had two nights here in Jan 2013, and it’s a great base to explore the area from. The welcome we had was very warm, the room was massive and spotlessly clean. Bathroom was a little on the small side, but clean and perfectly functional. Kitchen was nicely equipped and there was free wifi which was great. The surrounding area...
