Thanks so much for another amazing stay. We loved our executive downstairs unit with the courtyard. Always clean and tidy, with a high regard to detail in every way. The new courtyard looks amazing.Thanks again from Claudette and Richard.

Have stayed one or two times a year at The Randolph for a number of years now. Can not fault the accomodation. The rooms are immaculate, spacious and well appointed. Free WIFI is available to guests. Peter, the Manager is friendly and always ready to assist. Situated in an ideal location to the botanic gardens, the city and short drive...

Host Paul was extremely helpful and friendly and took time to show us an apartment before we booked. The two bedroom apartments are luxuriously appointed and spotlessly clean. The full sized kitchen was well equipped and the option of having breakfast contents delivered the night before allows you to eat at whatever time you like - great if you want...

This is a hard one to review. We stayed here because ChCh was full so not a place we would usually choose. Our apartment was a 2 bedroom, all they had left and fine for us as a couple - but no dishwasher and only 1 bathroom which if we were there with kids would have been disappointing (we stay...

We are reasonable regular travellers to Christchurch and have stayed at a number of motels in Papanui Road or Bealey Avenue. We found that the Randolph is the best value for money. All of our trips have been during the busy Christmas period. The Randolph has bigger rooms, was very clean and cooking facilities and washing machine/dryer was included in...

This is our second stay here, we have a one bedroom unit for a week, it is perfect. Tastefully furnished and decorated, washer/dryer is so handy in our unit. All modern appliances, and enjoyed our own private courtyard.

Honestly was a little bit skeptical when my colleagues suggested this place for a one-night stay. In the end, very satisfied! Clean & spacious room with self-sustained amenities. Also came with free 10G-worth of free wifi (some places around town don't offer this much even if you are paying for it!)

There is no dishwasher in the 2 bed/2 bathroom unit. What about hygiene really this was not up to standard for such accommodation. When one books the "family" unit with sleeping/beds arranged for 5 people and a port a cot all set up prior to our arrival. We were most upset to be asked by management how many people were...

Is an excellent place to stay, is really clean with all mod cons - cooking facilities and in room washing machine and dryer. Fabulous bed and close to shops. Owners are friendly and room is serviced daily, no need to use air conditioning as room is very cosy, highly recommended

The Papanui road location is handy to the city, and the in-room facilities are good for business travellers - work desks, good wifi, plenty of power points, washer/dryer, ironing etc. Comfortable, quiet, and clean. Suggest phoning to make bookings, particularly if you need flexibility on number of nights, or trying to book far in advance, as the on-line AA booking...
