On a 5 day visit to Christchurch we found the motor lodge perfectly positioned so we could walk to the majority of the attractions. The one bedroom apartment worked when my brother joined us for the weekend with a fold out bed in the lounge area. Off street car parking. Quiet, up

We had a two bedroom family unit at the back of the complex. Absolutely no noise, spacious and comfortable unit and very clean. Not too far from the city centre and Hagley Park and with supermarket close by. Great place for a family stay and very reasonably priced.

Hello could you please tell what number bus to jump at the airport that will pass near by the Lodge thank you.
Neville is right. There are only 2 buses from the airport. Make sure you get the one that goes via Fendalton. The bus will go into the city alongside the park and then turn right into Victoria St. Ring the bell to get off once the park (on your right) finishes. The bus will the. Turn right into Victoria St and there you get off. The walk to Ashford from there is quite short - 5 minutes. As you get off the bus, turn left and walk straight down Papanui Rd. You’ll pass a Shell Service station. Go a bit further. Ashford is on the same side S the Shell. Good luck
