Stayed for one night & we checked into our room and then left again & didn't return until late. Disappointed to find only a sheet and a bedspread on the bed and no extra bedding in the room. It did say in the room information that we could ring the lobby for extra bedding- but at 11pm I didn't want... More

Friendly service. Good shopping center is not far away as well as recreational facilities and all big city convenience. Motel suits for short term stay for a busy travelers. A bit noisy... More

Cooking facilities microwave only, the puzzle was the only things supplied to use it was a plastic bowl and a seive, what you cook with that is any bodies guess. Easy... More

We stayed at this motel and found it very clean and tidy plus being reasonably priced. It suited our purpose which was to be able to go to the golf course easily. This motel is situated not far from the Northlands shopping centre which caters for all your needs.

We only required one night and this unit had two beds to sleep the three of us. The unit did not have a hot plate so we were unable to cook a meal. There was a microwave but this did suit what we wanted to do. Other than that the facilities were adequate and clean and tidy but equipment such... More

This motel was clean, modern with all the amenities required at a reasonable price of NZ$140 per night. It easily accommodated two adults and one child, the bed was comfortable and the area quite at night . It was close to Papanui which has a wide variety of shops and restaurants. We had the first floor unit and had to... More

We stayed two nights, and found this to be a quite reasonable Motel. The location was good for visiting Christchurch. We had very little interaction with the manager, but were impressed with the accommodations for the price. Parking was tight, but that was the only disadvantage we saw.

The room was clean, comfortable and warm. OK, the bedding doesn't match, there's no view from the window, no pictures on the wall, but the shower and the electric blanket work and there's all the bits and pieces you'd expect to find in a motel room. Despite the motel being on a main road it was surprisingly quiet in the... More

When I say cheap it's not the "price". What I mean is cheap in "quality". We had a queen bed that felt like 2 single bed joined together. Hollow in the middle. Was not able to sleep as people upstairs were walking around and made noises uou can hear from the ground floor. "Not good value for money".
