We had stayed here a few years ago and knew it was older and dated, Didn't worry us. We are a family of 4 so having 2 bedrooms, a lounge, kitchen and large bathroom was wonderful. The full size oven was great - I cooked part of the Christmas dinner in it. I wouldn't use this motel if I was... More

As a family of two adults and two kids we found the facilities (notably the childrens playground) well suited. The staff we encountered were friendly and helpful. In contrast the room servicing was very hit and miss and seldom matched the description in their booklet. When the service followed the advertised process (beds made, recycling removed) the staff went beyond... More

We booked the hotel from the airport kiosk, which says "free airport shuttles." But today when we inquired about the free airport shuttle they told us it is too expensive for them to keep running shuttles so we had to call a taxi!! Considering we booked the hotel for the free airport shuttle this was very unsatisfactory. Also, LIMITED HOT... More

When we arrived we were assigned a room with electrical problems. Within a short time it was determined we'd have to move. The replacement room was much better - more spacious and better appointed. The one issue that remained unresolved during our entire stay was the internet access. In short, it just didn't work. When we finally went to the... More

Just stayed here for four nights. I was surprised how quiet it was.An older style motel, but we liked the solid feel to it. Very well equipped with a proper stove in addition to the usual toaster, jug and microwave. Nice to have a lounge as well as a bedroom. The beds were very supportive and comfortable, the linen crisp... More

We just stayed in this hotel overnight to catch a very early flight . If reception had not called us to remind us of a change to daylight savings time, we would have missed our flight. He then arranged with a taxi to pick us up the next morning, as well as the young man staying in the room next... More

Stayed here for 3 nights while attending a sports event. It is an older motel that is dated and probably due for renovation. However, having said the it was clean, comfortable and we enjoyed getting back there - a very relaxing atmosphere. The beds were very comfortable and the unit we were in was spacious.

We have stayed here three previous times, the place has always been outdated but we have in the past been ok with that as it came with free short term parking and airport transfers and was clean!

We arrived in Christchurch airport at night and motel boss picked us up from airport quite promptly. Room is very large with 2 beds that can accomodate at least 3 people.
