The towels are pretty well worn and tatty, the bathroom had mould starting on the walls, the shower door wouldn't shut properly and the carpet is getting threadbare to the stage the fixing poke through and...

Room is however in need of a overhaul (lots of scuff marks on slider doors, inside doors and some walls. Whilst these are not major they detract from the overall impression....

We were two couples who stayed in Christchurch in November 2016 - and we had two rooms at the Southern Comfort motel. During our visit the motel was fully booked the 4 nights we were there - it was the time of the Christchurch A&P (agriculture and produce ) Show - so the town was busy. We had two rooms...

I stayed for four nights. The motel is comfortable, and the staff are friendly. The kitchenette in the motel room is very well-equipped. The bathroom had good water pressure. Everything was very clean and well-looked after. Late night check in was easy to arrange. Staff were very helpful in organising keys for a late night arrival. The motel is well-located...

The rooms were good, we had 6 girls visiting so all stayed in one room, however the bathroom had a strong smell of Mould and needed some love. Missing panelling on the floor, visible Mould etc please give it a good clean and improve the extraction of steam!!

There's 2 heater in the room and living room (Thank God!) No problem with parking, abundant space available. Reception staffs were friendly. Definitely recommended. The only downside was the traffic...

We had a great stay at this motel. The price is very reasonable and it is well located being just around the corner from alot of restaurants. The room was comfortable and we even had our own little courtyard. People on reception were very friendly and welcoming. Yes I would stay here again

We checked in 4 days ago at this Southern Comfort Motel in Christchurch. Looks a normal motel. Bal the Filipino bloke manning his reception office takes service to customers to a higher level. We had issues with our flight booking and with all the limitations he has had to endure in managing the reception, he was outstanding in helping us...
