We stayed here for 2 nights the rooms are clean and the beds are very comfortable. There are 2 hot plates and a small oven so you can cook for yourself. There is a supermarket just down the road in Belfast. There was a fridge in the room but it didn't have a freezer box

Thank you for your review. It looks like you enjoyed your stay with us. We are also a good to place to base yourself if you want to explore ChCh and the surrounding area. The fridges in the studios are only a year old and we have found them to be good in keeping the contents cool. We got them because as they don't have a compressor they are very quiet. As I don't know which room you were in I can't check it. We might see you again sometime.

Stayed here last month while in the Christchurch. Hosts were very accommodating for my early check in (as wedding started prior to normal check in). Handy location to airport too as had a 7am flight. Did very little but sleep in the hotel, but it was clean and tidy. I would stay

Thank you for your review. We are pleased that you enjoyed your stay with us. Although we are semi rural, we are still close to tourist attractions, shops, restaurants, airport and SH1 for getting in and out of the city. Since the new motorway has been completed we get very little traffic noise. It's good to hear that you enjoyed the teas, coffees and biscuits. The Groynes, next door to us is a great place for walks or relaxing. We hope to see you again sometime when you are next in Christchurch.

I want to commend Gerald and his wife for a wonderful time at his motel the weekend of our wedding. We booked some time in advance as it was Labour Weekend, and Gerald was extremely accommodating with changes in numbers, and requests for rooms as we got closer to the wedding

Thank you Fiona for your lovely review. We are very pleased that you and your group enjoyed staying with us, you also had the perfect weather for your wedding. Rosebank is right next door to us, perfect if you are having a wedding or function there. Yes we have found that we get very little traffic noise from the new motorway and Johns Road, even less now that they have put down the new quiet road seal. We are only 8 minutes from the airport and we provide a free shuttle service during the day. We might see you again sometime.

My wife and I stayed here as our first stop after a long flight and at the start of our two week vacation. The location was convenient, although due to construction on the main highway it was harder to find coming from the airport than we had anticipated. The hosts were very

Thank you for your review. Coming from the airport you now take the Rosebank/ Belfast exit before you get onto the Motorway. Our entrance is on Groynes Drive which that exit takes you directly to. There is a lock on the main door, the doors have to be able to be opened from the inside without a key in case of an emergency such as a fire. We are pleased that you enjoyed your short stay and we hope to see you again sometime.
