Our cabin was small, but clean and had everything we needed. I will not be able to stay for extended periods of time, but for one or two nights this is fine. Was frustrating that there are no bus stops or shops close by.

Hi there and thanks for your feedback. Always appreciated. We note your frustration with the shops a 30 min walk away and the bus stop in Northwood Boulevard a 10 minute walk away. Hopefully as we get more built in this will improve. By car the shops are 3-4 mins away. Regarding your accommodation, we appreciate your feedback on this....

Stayed here at the end of our trip. Close to airport. Friendly and helpful staff. No free wifi. Clean and simple facilities in the campground area. Lounge room area heating wasn't big enough to heat the entire room. Would stay here again at the beginning or end of trip.

This is the fourth time we have stayed here. Previous times we have stayed in ensuite cabins, cabins and the motel units. This time we stayed in a motel unit as we had an early morning flight.

Recently stayed at 219 on Johns. Although having misunderstood the cancellation policy, the stay was nice, and the staff were very helpful when approached. Close to the airport, and great for a night away before flying. Would recommend.

We stayed here for one night before picking up Campervan next morning. The lady owner at the front desk was very friendly and provided good information. She picked up our family at the airport and arranged a taxi for us to the Campervan company. Location was not far from the airport. The room was very clean with small kitchen inside....

Had 3 bedroom apt for one night sleeping 8. Price? was ok. I liked that there is an entrance room before you enter the single level apartment. Very good for saving heat. Though there is only small fan heaters in the rooms oil heaters could have been a better idea. Ark outside the apartment supermarket a short DRIVE down busy...

Stayed here overnight, after driving from Cromwell to Christchurch. We were pleasantly surprised to find our booking was for a 3 bedroom unit and with loads of space and amenities for the 2 couples.

The staff here are very helpful and friendly. Place looks great and the facility's are of good quality.

We arrived at the motel and much to the delight of the grandchildren there was as small playground. Situated directly across from the family unit, it was easy to keep any eye on them at all times.
