Stayed here with my family (3 kids under 5) for one night. Great motel - good value, huge room, kitchen with proper oven. Walking distance to Margaret Mahy playground which my kids love. The owner (or manager?) was exceptionally friendly / helpful / welcoming. Even offered us a high chair if we needed it.

This place is a gem. Only a short walk into town but feels like a quiet oasis. The rooms have been modernised, but maintain the character of the 60's architecture. Rick is one of the best hosts I've come across. Friendly, helpful, aware but unobtrusive. He got to know us and our needs very quickly. He also very kindly stored our bags after check out and not only drove us to the airport, but detoured so we could collect an item we'd left behind in our camper van hire that we had returned the day before. This was an incredibly generous thing to do and topped off a great 2 weeks on the south island.

Although this motel was in a reasonable location and had good safe parking, it’s seriously in need of an update, it’s very old fashioned, cleaning could have been a lot better.The size was good plenty of space to unpack. We wouldn’t stay here again for the reasons I have given. However the owner. Manager was quite charming and gave us plenty of info on the city and surrounding area

Love this motel. Owner Rick and motel managers made us feel at home during our two nights stay in this property. This is our first trip to New Zealand and we were given good recommendations on where to go for our meals and other places of interest within Christchurch. Room is clean, the environment is quiet. Most importantly if you drive, the property is within close proximity to the city centre. Highly recommended.
