We spent two nights at Addington Court Motel and chose it primarily because of its location to the stadium. The owners of the motel and very friendly and helpful and the unit was wonderfully clean and tidy. Can't fault it and would be back for sure when next in Chch :)

Very clean place, I couldn't fault it. The beds were a little too hard for us to enjoy, and we were woken at 6am by the heavy traffic noise on the dual carriageway outside. Apart from that, it's a nice little motel, with very friendly staff, that's well located near the train station - very handy for the early morning... More

We chose to stay here at the beginning and end of our stay. The rooms are very clean and comfortable and we appreciated the complimentary transfer to the train station. They cheerfully accommodated our out of hours checkin and checkout times and we'd definitely stay again. The upstairs rooms (#9, #10) are the quietest!!

Had a concert at the Horncastle Arena so just a 5 minute walk. Very handy. Not too far to the Speights Ale house too. Very pleasant units. Good service & very clean & tidy. The AMI arena is in this vicinity too.

I picked this motel because it was close to the railway station for the TranzAlpine train trip. It was approximately a 20 minute easy walk to the train station.

The Addington Court Motel is near new, the rooms are immaculately presented and the family running the motel are really helpful. Plenty of space, modern bathroom, adequate kitchen facility, Sky TV and a small balcony on the upstairs units. It represents good value for money.

We stayed here for business and rugby. Really well kept, tidy, clean accommodation. Friendly and obliging staff. Road noise was not an issue, good water pressure, excellent location. Totally recommend and will definitely be back if needing accommodation in Chch again.
