Thank you for taking the time for reviewing our stay. In regards to the internet there was an error on our part. The internet voucher were supposed to be printed out for 4 devices not 1.

The rooms were clean and quiet which we needed after a long drive. Would have liked cooking facilities but we ordered pizza and they delivered so that was great. Appreciate being able to bring our little dog too. Friendly staff and handy to most things.

We arrived in Christchurch after our journey halfway round the world and were immediately made to feel incredibly welcome by the owners. They gave us everything we needed for our stay and showed us to our room - which was huge, especially when you're not used to NZ's motel style properties. The motor lodge is about 20 minutes walk away...

We were allocated a room designed to cater for people with disabilities. It was clean and spacious. Plenty of car parking spaces. The staff were friendly and the whole booking and check in process handled very professionally. There are plenty of eating and shopping options close by.
