I was really impressed by the look, space and facilities in the apartment. It was so tastefully set out, warm, comfortable and spacious. A great kitchen with all facilities. Undercover parking for your car and walk in without getting wet - important in Christchurch. A really nice end to our holiday. Thank you.

We had a lovely room that was comfortable - it's really quiet - no street noise and handy to buses/restaurants/cafes/Christchurch City and Riccarton Mall. And on the bus route. We're always comfortable and sleep the sleep of the the dead. Addington City Motel is the best Motel I've ever stayed in - I cannot rate it any higher. (I've been...

Arriving at this motel you get the impression from its mauve signage its dated and has seen better days – BUT YOU WILL BE WRONG- Having spent 4 weeks travelling round the country this tops the list, equal in standard to many 4 * hotels . The rooms ( suites ) are well equipped and well maintained to modern standards...

We chose this Motel because of the excellent reviews it had and we were not disappointed. We were pleasantly welcomed at check in and given a comprehensive tour of our accommodation being surprised at the generous size of the unit. There was ample parking room for our large pick-up truck under cover. Despite being an older construction our unit was...

Lovely modern clean and most comfortable two bedroom unit with everything you could possibly need. The outside may appear a bit dated but don't let that fool you. As I mentioned the rooms are modern clean and comfy. Ours had an electric fireplace. Outside , the owners Janice and her husband have lovely rose gardens and at night the reception...

They are helpful and caring give great service to clients, have easy access and are quiet at night. They are comfortable, clean, and provide good parking. Siuated within walking distance of the Stadium they are an excellant place to stay when going to an event there.

Got into town late and was given what we paid for, which was a studio unit. Janice, the bosslady, suggested we could upgrade to the one bed unit, which for only another tender, was a much better deal. Absurd......I'd have paid at least $30 extra, because it was a much more sensible room. So helpful people, well equipped, convenient. That's...

I have travelled quiet a lot, and this was the most comfortable bed I have ever had when travelling. While clean it is very dated. The wifi was great however the parking was very limited and the location wasn't very well advertised. A bit on the expensive side for what you got.

A dated motel which is still serviceable and central. A bit tired but clean. Good off street parking. Staff are very helpful. Close to a range of restaurants. A little noisy later in the evening but not from the motel guests or rooms. Would recommend if you are going to an event or function at Addington Paceway.

Friendly place. Rooms very comfortable and family friendly. They allowed us to leave a vehicle there for 3 days while we did a train trip. Rooms have full kitchens. Our unit even had 2 TVs. We would be very happy to stay there again.
