Wife said motel was perfect with regards to bathroom, shower, heating, ventilation, bed, and kitchenette. Walking distance to Tranz Alpine train. $18 taxi into town. Close to Riccarton Mall and Hagley Park. Would definitely stay here again when in Christchurch.

Golden Star is Riccarton’s newest motel, completed in early April 2017 and opening late June 2017. Located in the Christchurch’s western business area, Golden Star Motel is within easy walking distance of both ...More Westfield Riccarton and Tower Junction. Buses stop right outside and the city’s train station and AMI stadium are a short walk away. Less
