Thank you to Lynne and Mark for their hospitality. Staying overnight in Christchurch was a last minute decision and we had driven past and also looked inside a number of motels. Lynne was happy for us to look at the room and straight away I told my hubby we'll take it. It was the last room available due to a...

We had been double booked by the Tourist Board at another motel and managed to book a room here at the last minute. We were glad we did! Everything was superb! Our own private little garden with table and chairs was just what we needed after a long journey. There were lovely flowers and it was a real suntrap in...

I am not usually into posting reviews but I feel I have to on this occasion. The stay at Roma on Riccarton was just superb. It started from the website to the kiwi greeting at the motel to the room. There was no expense spared in furnishing the room we were in. Comfy bed, 2 seater recliner chairs, the bathroom...

We stayed here for a couple of nights on a flying visit to Christchurch. The room we had was on the ground floor and had a spa bath. The whole room was spotless and fitted to a very good standard, including high speed wifi. Toiletries were of a good quality alongside large white fluffy towels in the bathroom. Kitchenette was...

Good Morning, Thank you for the great write up on our room, most overlook the extra things we have added since taking over this complex. like the recliner chair, a corporate guest of ours suggested them and so far the rooms with them have been a real hit. We would welcome you again anytime, your review is very clear and...

A short 2 night stay here but a lovely friendly check-in and out from the owners. We requested a quiet unit with a king-sized bed and this was certainly what we got. A comfortable unit with little road noise and a great bed. Very clean and tidy with aircon available if needed. We would have loved a full length mirror...

I rarely leave reviews, but I travel regularly within NZ on business and have been consistently impressed with Roma on Riccarton. Of all the motels I have stayed in, Roma on Riccarton would have to be the quietest, warmest, best furnished and I note the units now have new heat pumps/aircon. Each unit I have stayed in has been exceptionally...

Although located on busy Riccarton Rd this motel was quiet. A must for us because we live in a rural are and are not used to road noise. Very clean, within walking distance to Riccarton Mall and plenty of eateries. Also within walking distance to Christchurch Railway station.
