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...

A very comfortable motel. The unit we were in would be very suitable for persons with mobility issues. The unit was very clean though the courtyard at the rear of the unit does need some tender loving care.

Convenient location to the city. As a business traveller accommadation criteria covering location and available facilities are essential. Local Restaurants are all within walking distance. Good Internet access is essential. However this fails dismally. Internet access was not only extremely poor & slow but kept dropping out. To the point of being unusable. Very frustrating. Road access from a busy...

Motel room was comfortable for a 3 day stay. The cleaning lady was friendly and helpful. Problems were encountered in other areas. On arrival we asked where the local bus went from to go to the centre of Christchurch. Reception lady did not appear to know what we were talking about and unable to give us any info. We later...

Arrived at 2pm and room had not been cleaned even though check-in started at 1pm. when cleaning was was done it was not satisfactory, mould in shower, broken glass outside entrance and dust and cobwebs through out. Staff seemed confused and unprofessional. Staff tried to have me pay for the same room 3 times. Motel itself was dated and tacky....

I would categorize this as a 2 star kind of place on a good day. Service is good but the place needs an update. Walls are thin, street noise is high, no AC, bathrooms are a bit dirty (nice brown grout and old soap still in shower), and stained couches. On the positive: free wifi and nice staff.

The Canterbury U/17 Boys Softball team stayed at this excellent Motel while the National U/17 tournament was held in Christchurch. Thanks to the fantastic experience we had staying here we won the tournament. The Management and cleaning staff looked after the boys, it helped us win the tournament.

Southern Comfort Motel looks like an average Motel from the outside. The room were above my expectations compared to other motels. We got a 400MB wifi voucher, but you can access the internet for free. Its working perfectly on computers, but very bad on all mobile devices. The pool and spa looks good, apparently it was just cleaned after someone...
