I travelled to Christchurch for business and was put up at the motel. The motel is located on a busy road, directly across from Riccarton Mall. The room was quite large, and was warmed using the heat pump. The room was equipped with my sky which was great. A short walk to the local pub was great also. The one...

There were some noisy 20 somethings next door one night, but other than that, this was probably the best motel I've ever stayed at, and it was a bargain to boot. Imagine a motel where you discover that the washer and dryer DON'T have a coin slot. They just make them available. And the soap was free. What??? The beds...

We had prebooked our room, but when we arrived our booking could not be found. Seems there was a computer glitch. Anyway we were found a room, which was quite small, and a struggle to find space for our two suitcases. The kitchen area was nice and bathroom adequate. Parking is a bit tight as there is only a small...

Good location, close to a good range of restaurants and the Riccarton Mall. We had a ground floor room and it was very good for my mother, accessible shower and grab rails etc. It has facilities for cooking etc as you would expect and the beds were very good. Unfortunately one of our party was taken ill and ended up...

The motel was very handy to all shops, opposite the Riccarton Mall. Went to an event at the Horncastle Arena which is about 3kms away and were able to catch the bus which was a few metres down the road to the bus stop. The motel room was small, but adequate for an overnight stay. The facilities were clean and...

To accept a booking on line the motel has entered into a binding contract. When they advise that room is not available and have to break the contract, they should have endeavoured to find me another room. Disappointing situation, more so because the town was all but full, however I will say the receptionist was pleasant in handling a difficult...

The Kauri Motel is a great place to stay. It is in an excellent location. Rooms are clean and comfortable. The hosts are extremely welcoming and nothing is too much. I have stayed here often and will continue to do so.

Stayed two nights. Fabulous location right opposite mall and walking distance to Hagley Park and City Centre. Had a small issue(with cleaning), told management and they not only apologised but left a box of chocolates and a note apologising for the situation,which was very thoughtful.

Opposite a major shopping mall and with bus stop within few minutes walk - on the route from Christchurch Airport - so very handy. Rooms are always well maintained. Double glazing ensures quiet and heat pump for warmth. Changed management since last stay but welcoming and efficient.

See comments about terrific response to lost property. Basically they went to alot of trouble to return it. Additionally, there was a warm and welcome greeting when we arrived on a wetand windy day. Location is handy (across the street) to an open-early cafe selling quite ok coffee and breakfast items.
