Only there for 9hrs as we arrived late and left early but a lovely little motel for the stop over. Room was small but Extremely clean, with a Big comfy bed. We had contacted the owner Tina prior to arrival and told her that we weren't arriving till late. She arranged for the key to be left out for us...

We stayed for 3 nights. Was a lovely unit, clean, tidy and had everything we needed, including a lovely wee garden/courtyard. Service was very friendly. The motel was in such a handy location, right next to plenty of restaurants. Positioned on an arterial route into the city, however as our unit was back of the road, it was actually remarkably...

Great friendly service we booked as a party of ten people, 8 adults and 2 small children under 5 years. Great location, good clean units, slightly dated, but it looked very much like its part of an ongoing process of upgrading as funds become available, Lovely furnishing including new curtains, lovely mats. No complaints about the beds, and the hotel...

Landed at Christchurch Airport at about 2pm on 25 August 2016. We picked up our rental car and proceeded to our first night's lodging at The Coachman Motel approx. 25mins southeast from the airport. 

Checking-in was a breeze. As it's motel-style, our car was parked (free) in front of our room. All rooms are on the ground floor. Ours was...

We enjoyed our stay at the Coachman Motel. The price was right. The location was great. The room was clean, warm and comfortable with a complete kitchen. Very convenient for where we wanted to be that night.

Even though rooms were clean, décor is getting a bit dated, and a coat of paint would not go amiss to just brighten things up a bit. Motels are however next door to the Bush Inn Shopping center, which has banks, restaurants, cafes, shops, Petrol station and a hotel/tavern. Great place to stay if you are a budget traveller, or...

I was pleasantly surprised by this Motel. The room has been recently modernised with new curtains, bedspread, couch and double glazed sliding doors. The kitchen and bathroom are more dated but clean and tidy with everything you need.

A great place to stay if you're visiting the university, it's a 10 minute walk and close to shops. Was comfortable and warm enough for a budget winter stay, close to the airport and bus stops at the gate. Could do with some thorough cleaning (corners, edges and under bed) but mostly good and couldn't complain about the cleanliness of...

The Coachman Motel has been our motel of choice in Christchurch for the past 10 years - due to it being perfectly situated for us and comfortable for a few days stay. The last two times we have stayed there the road noise and partying on Riccarton Road (directly opposite) has been such that we have had no sleep -...
