We (Me, wife and 3 year old daughter) stayed for a week catching up with old friends and relatives in CHCH. We stayed in the Dianna suit and the accommodation and facilities were excellent, also great for having visitors which was often in our case. Geoff and Wendy were great hosts, couldn't help enough and we wil certainly be back...

The owner of Buckingham Court couldn't do enough for us - he was friendly and helpful. The unit had a separate bedroom and full kitchen facilities, all very clean and comfortable. The motel is located just off a very busy road, and opposite the lovely Avon River. Despite being close to the road, there was no road noise and the...

Stayed at Buckingham Court for two nights during last week. Its clean, comfortable and well equipped. The owner Geoff was a great bloke and anything we needed he was only too happy to help with. Will book in again when we next visit NZ.

With 2 nights accommodation previously booked at another Christchurch Motel unable to be extended, Geoff was most helpful in providing us with a 3rd night accommodation in Christchurch at short notice. With our booking being made with little knowledge of the location, the Buckingham Court Motel proved to be a hidden gem. Being in a lovely quiet location the unit...

This is a hidden gem. Right on the bus route to the city which is only a 20 minute walk anyway. The rooms were clean and really quiet and the bed was great. Our host Geoff was really helpful with any of our problems. This is a really good location.

Top marks for lovely crisp white clean linen. Clean and spacious room with a nice name - Princess Anne unit. A metal kettle instead of a plastic one. Traffic noise level was minimal. Ample room for car park. Laundry facilities were appreciated by us. Plenty of hot water for the shower. Certainly would not hesitate recommending this motel to anyone.

Geoff and Wendy were very helpful with suggestions for sites to see, restaurants and other local (and some not so local) places to visit. They loaned us lawn chairs when we went to the outdoor play in the park and they loaned us CD's for music when we drove to the West Coast to see Franz Josef Glacier. They went...
