The outside of this motel is attractively presented with hanging flower baskets and neat areas for parking. The motel is on the corner of Papanui Rd and Clare Street and you can drive in either entrance.

Greeted by Chris who is an absolutely lovely lady, and I honestly felt liked she cared. Beautiful clean room, everything you would expect in a 4-5 star place. I loved the interior decorating very chic and modern. The use natural products from Blenheim in the bathroom was awesome

Well equipped, spacious motel unit - spotlessly presented. People on site very helpful. Lovely display of flowers - great use made of spaces available.

Stayed overnight in Unit 9. A good location on Papanui Road convenient for either the City or Merivale. The unit was spotless, and in a fresh decor. Liked the touch of the supplied bathroom products, which are made in NZ; it is unusual to get anything other than a few sachets of shampoo and shower gel. Staff were friendly, and...

We stayed in a studio unit and the unit was very clean! Even the toilet bowl was sterilised, which some hotels don't even do now! The bed was very clean and comfortable too. There was also May Chang amenities for our bath too. It is about 15 min drive to the airport, and 10 min walk to a shopping mall...

Very clean and beautiful accommodation that is walking distance to restaurants and the supermarket. Service at the front desk was excellent as well. Will definitely recommend this to others! The flowers growing throughout the lodge are also very beautiful and helps to enhance one's experience here.
