My group of 5 stayed for 2 nights. We needed 3 bedrooms. In order to provide 3 bedrooms,space has beeen comprised resulting in a suite that felt really tight and cramped. The bathroom in particular was very small. My overall feeling about the place is coloured by my frustration with the wifi which did not work.In order to get anywhere...

there are many motels on Riccarton Road. 298 Westfield holds its own in terms of room comfort, but is let down very badly with the wi-fi. You can ask for vouchers, of 200 MB, advertised by the Zenbu company as 'easy, cheap, reliable'', and preferable to timed connections. It totally isn't. Any idea how long 200 MB gets you? 7...

The rooms were neat and space was adequate. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. While the motel was away from the town center, it was close to some really good food places and shopping for provisions was also convenient.
