Stayed here one night when we came to Chch to pick a car up as it was located close by, we stayed at another much more expensive hotel the next 2 nights and was really disappointed we left... the Owners were very friendly, helpful and accommodating, the motel itself was clean, spacious, comfortable bed, and despite being next to a...

I was fortunate enough to stay at this motel for 4 nights in January and cannot praise Morag, Dave and the team enough for the quality of both the accommodation and service I received. From the moment I arrived the hospitality I received was at a very high standard and the whole team were lovely to deal with I found...

We had to overnight in Christchurch with two doggies so I had to find pet friendly accommodation. Well, I don't think I could have chosen better! We stayed in a standard studio apartment which was very roomy and very clean. The bonus was that this studio (and the others in the same block) had a back door which led straight...

This is a very conveniently located hotel, and although on the older side has everything you need for a great stay in Christchurch. Our unit was spacious, the facilities great (with kitchen provided) and the owners are lovely and very accommodating. Unfortunately I can't give this review 5 stars as the bed was the worst I've slept in in ages,...

Northcote. Check in was standard parking is high. We only had a Camry and if the hotel was full would have found it difficult to park. Room was clean and had a small kitchenette with enough to cook with. Room was clean and the beds good. The outlook was onto suburbia, petrol station one side homes to the other. Supermarkets...

I stayed here while up in christchurch for a concert. I picked Northcote as it was pet friendly and I wanted to take my dog. I phoned to make my booking as I wanted to just ensure "Stella" would be okay coming to stay with them. Morag was great and told me where would be a good place to park....

Northcote Motor Lodge is a great example of a classic New Zealand motel - for all the right reasons. We were a group of two couples and booked a one night stay here prior to taking an long haul flight from Christchurch International Airport. The lady (manager/owner I think?) that checked us in was friendly and helpful and provided us...

We were visiting Christchurch for a funeral and were there just one night. The unit was clean and tidy, and we were welcomed by a woman standing-in for the owners. The big disappointment was the bed - definitely past its use by date, and it would have benefited from a mattress topper if management not able to replace the mattress....

Thank you for taking the time to pass on your comments after your stay with us. We try to accommodate everyone but tastes are different and most responses were favourable of the beds so didnt realise they could be hard. However, we have purchased some mattress toppers now and have them on some beds. I hope the rest of your...

My mother and I stayed here in april last year, and were not only impressed with the price of the studio room, but the quality and cleanliness of the room we had. The room smelt fresh, the beds were extremely comfy and the sky tv had a fantastic movie on that night which was good for us. The location is...

“Rooms bit drafty and being open plan takes a while to heat up - close all the bedroom & bathroom doors as soon as you get into room. Almost resorted to putting a towel down as a draft stop by the kitchen, but heater eventually worked.”
