We had a recent overnight stay at Focus and I have to say that i do not have a bad word to say about the whole experience! We arrived early in the morning and Carol was very warm and welcoming and apologetic that there wasn't a room ready for us even though we knew that would likely be the case...

Just call these guys directly as even if it looks booked up online they were able to wrangle us something and even gave us a great rate! The rooms are big, clean and comfy with tons of TV channels for chilling out. It's walking distance to the town centre and very close to a lot of great bars and restaurants...

All the rooms are great, stylish, well maintained, clean and come in a variety of sizes to suit every need. Roy and Carol are great hosts and definitely made our move to...

We have just returned from Christchurch after a long overdue visit. I booked at the Focus Motel, & have had the best experience ever. The motel is elegantly furnished, exceptionally clean & well located.

Very happy with the standard of maintenance at this property. 12 months after our last stay it still has an as-new feel. Right next to the casino, plenty of cafe and restaurant options in easy walking distance. An excellent motel in every respect.

The studio room is a little small for storage for 2 travellers. The owners are very nice, the location was close to Victoria ave, and Casino. The place is clean and sturdy which is important in Christchurch. There is construction in the area, so was a little noisy later in the morning

We stayed at this motel for three nights and could not have been happier with our visit. The suite was modern and well laid out with stylish decor. The location is perfect with only a short walk to the central city and plenty of cafes and bars. Carol and Roy were extremely hospitable and helpful.

Have just returned from 3 nights at focus and couldn't have been happier with our stay. Carol and Roy go above and beyond for their guests. Was good location near several great restaurants and bars. Will definitely return when next in Christchurch.
