Very accommodating hosts who make guests very welcome. Russell put the heater on for us which was great on a cool CHCH evening. He also recommended a restaurant that we could get a 10% discount.Very comfortable bed & the unit was very clean & tidy. I have no hesitation in recommending this motel.

My husband & I stay here several times a year on business, & Russell & Wendy are absolutely the most pleasant and accommodating hosts. All we have to do is ring up & if there's a room available, it's ours. In the cooler weather, they will warm up the unit prior to our arrival, and when we are coming in... More

The 2 bedroom motel unit was clean, the beds were comfortable, the kitchen was well equipped and the location was great for us. Very close to some good eateries, the Riccarton shops and not too far from the airport. Russell was a great host and even... More

The owner Russell was very helpful and... More

Even though I am a mainlander, I tend to get lost in Christchurch, but there was no such problem with this motel. It is on the main road into town from the south, and close to Riccarton for food or shopping. I actually picked the motel purely on the basis it was the cheapest I could find, and on that... More

Room was good and spacious. The bathroom ceiling was grubby with mould like marks on the roof - could do with a really good scrub down. Different to have a separate kitchen area with table. Was handy in location
