Thanks for your feedback and pleased you enjoyed your stay. There are just enough parks for everyone but sometimes people have very large cars which can make it tight. it was a pleasure to host you.

Hotel's Favourite
A very friendly and welcoming visit from the proprietor. She was a delight to talk too. Room was lovely and well appointed. Complex is right on a busy road, but didnt hear anything, and slept soundly. Very close to Train Station and the Riccarton Mall, and also not far from airport. Will definitely stay again

Very comfortable and spotlessly clean rooms with everything you need. Superbly located for the Tranzalpine and Coastal Pacific trains. Owner Phyllis goes over and above with the free drops off to the station at 6.30am/7.30am in the morning - all delivered with a smile on a dark and chilly June morning! I would definitely recommend Tower Junction motel to travellers to Christchurch. Thanks Phyllis.

I stayed or three nights and had a fantastic stay. The motel offers great location to both shops and the transalpine. The rooms are modern and very comfortable. As a solo traveller it is always a pleasure to have a great host during a stay in a new city. Great hospitality , great location and a comfortable stay.
