We spent 2 nights at Abbey Motor Lodge. It was in a good location. The apartments were still undergoing some renovation outside however this did not detract from our stay. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were spotless. Kitchen and bathroom could indeed do with a facelift which I feel they are in the process of doing. Our room...

We were in for one night and our experience was fine. We were in recently renovated rooms which were well appointed with modern décor. Its a small motel on a busy road which was a bit noisy especially as we had the windows open due to the warm weather. I'm sure as the cooler months draw nearer the need to...

Arranged to stay well in advance. On check in day we were nearly in Christchurch after a 4 hour trip and received a phone call telling us that they were doing up the motel and we were rebooked in a hotel. Why we were NOT told in advance was just not acceptable. If we hadnt been almost in ChCh we...

Me and my dad stayed for a few nights. We had a large room with 2 bedrooms. Rooms were modern and well fitted out with nice furniture with good beds and a nice sized Tv, not to far away from the city centre. Rooms were clean and staff were fantastic and friendly. The place was undergoing some maintenance while we...

Good experience. Stayed for a night on 31th December with my family. Clean and quiet. Very friendly staff. Spacious for 4 people. Not that modern but I don't mind at all. Got everything you need for breakfast and cooking dinner. (not sure whether there was oven but no needed)

I had a good experience here, having stayed for four nights. My unit was quiet and very clean, with modern furnishings and a new shower. The doors on two of the kitchen cupboards didn't close properly—but otherwise everything, including the free Wi-Fi, was excellent. I was surprised to read of others' bad experiences here.

If you are under budget, this place will do the job. We paid AUD130/night, stayed overnight. The room was spacious. However, our room was old and door seemed fragile... would not recommend unless you are on tight budget.
