I have stayed here twice in the last couple of months and would stay again without a thought. It is comfortable, clean, the owners are welcoming and my room, 2, was just right. Town is just down the road and there are cafes and take aways and easy walk from the motel.

Our team had a couple of very cosy nights here recently. The rooms were spotless, serviced daily, and the beds very comfortable. The owner even obliged with a group photo before we left! Great value and highly recommended.

Our room seemed welcoming and clean which catered for most the requirements of a motel. However, we found it frustrating to only have one mirror in the bathroom. As we were two woman staying for 2 nights during a School Reunion we would have preferred to see another mirror either on the living area wall, or inside the wardrobe door.This...

Stayed 3 nights on business trip. Nice large rooms very clean, with a large spa bath. Sky TV and helpful friendly folk running the place. Also very quiet although its on the main road. Didn't hear any significant traffic noise . The building is solid so you cant hear your neighbors either. Will certainly stay there again.

The Phoenix is very comfortable and clean with decent size rooms. Showing a little bit of wear and tear but not much really. I had a (prearranged) very late arrival and it was no problem to have the room left unlocked for me which was very convenient. Didn't see that much of the owners but they were friendly. Looked like...

A great little motel, the rooms are clean, look new and spacious. On checking in we were given great advice on places in town to eat. There is also a small shop on the opposite corner if you wanted more milk etc. The only minor problem is that to go to the town centre you have to cross over the...

We stayed at the Phoniex Motel for one night, the motel was lovely, very clean, great location and the room was really well equipped. The owners were really helpful, they assisted us with an issue with the booking and helped us resolve it immediately. After we left we realised we had left a phone charger and a baby's towel, they...

It was a surprise to find such a nicely appointed motel in Temuka after having stayed in quite a few run-down ones there previously. I'll always book this one every time I go there from now on! Big spacious and private room with a king-sized bed, clean and tidy. We had two cars and yet parking was not an issue....

Freezing cold when we arrived so it was a delight to be welcomed and escorted to our room by Clare. The room was spacious and comfortable and everything worked. The kitchenette was perfect for our minimal cooking and the bathroom was huge and the wet room was a great bonus. Free wifi was quite speedy. Many of the artworks on...

I stayed here for a night on my way to Christchurch and really enjoyed my stay. The room was neat and tidy with 2 TVs. One in the lounge and another in the bedroom. The toilets and bathrooms were neat and tidy. It is just a quick walk to the city centre and place seemed peaceful and quite.
