This place is absolutely worth the money. The staff is really considerate for allowing early check in as we landed quite ahead of time. The location is amazing too. Only complaint is that we got a room facing the street. That was noisy. Also only if they had more heating in the room it would have been more comfortable.

Stayed in this motel twice when my friends and I landed late in Christchurch and when I'm flying off to Auckland. First time we booked a 4 bedroom apartment. Cosy place with full kitchen facilities and comfortable bed. The downside is poor water pressure in both bathroom. Still acceptable as my friends and I are only staying for a day....

We werent sure what to expect as we are generally hotel snobs. But this motel 2 bedroom apartment proved to be very good and had everything we needed. We were pleasantly surprised at the size and location. The only dampener were asian tourists next door talking until 3am in the morning outside our window. We politely asked them to keep...

Some great points about our room - great location, close to Burger King and Pedros lamb place is insanely good. Nice large space for me, my kids and my mum. I was at a conference so had finished early and was able to check in at around 12, rather than the usual 2-4. Not so great - none of the...

A great motel with kitchenette and other breakfast essentials. A short walking distance to burger king which is superb for supper. Nothing to complain except remember to take the tea/coffee creamer/milk from the receptions.

I was incredibly surprised coming into this place! The room was quite large, comfortable bed, great kitchen unit with microwave and even hot plates. They gave us a small bottle of milk on the way in which was much better than the little milks you usually get at other hotels. The main issue we had was with our key/lock on...

We stayed for three nights. Pros - good location on Bealey Ave, unit was spacious, wifi worked pretty well, good electric blankets on the beds. Cons - carpets and bed covers were stained, no smoke detector in our unit, mold in bathroom, big shower but curtain only covered 2/3 of it. The baseboard was ripped off in our bathroom, and...

This is a clean well appointed motel in a central location. The downside is the road noise. A pair of air plugs would eliminate the only downside of this motel. Would stay again with ear plugs or ask for a room away from the road, I was in Unit 4 which was upstairs. Free Wifi.

To be honest, for a place listing $150 a night for a 2 bedroom motel apartment, I wasn't expecting much. So when we arrived on the premise I literally had my jaws dropped...the place is great. Really great. The apartment room has a very spacious living room area, and the rooms are spacious as well, very useful to sort out...

I have stayed at the Southern Comfort Motel twice now and each time I have had an excellent experience. It is excellent value for money. Good location - although not in the centre of Christchurch, plenty around. The rooms are spacious, clean and tidy and the services are great. Staff are friendly and helpful. I have loved both stays here...
