I checked in at 7.30pm after reporting on the quakes for three days in North-Canterbury. I told the owner I would spend that evening writing copy and sending it to my editors. I was clearly tired, on a work-trip and alone. When I settled in my room and started working the owner twice interrupted me: once to ask for my...

We arrived at 9:30 am on Saturday, October 29 on an early flight. While the room was not yet available (and wasn't expected to be), we received a warm welcome and they graciously stored our bags, gave us a good map, suggestions about what to see and do and sent us on our way assuring us that our large room...

Solo mum travelling with 5yo and a hire car. Sherborne is the ideal distance away from the city centre when you have a car to consider. It is easy to access, has parking and the rooms are very spacious and home-like! Would definitely re-book if/when I return to Christchurch!

The owners and staff were friendly and helpful. We let them know we would be arriving 6am and we had no problem getting into our room. The room was warm, spacious and very clean.

Great space. Family of 4, 2 bedrooms, with a bed in the lounge, so everyone was happy! We arrived into Christchurch early, and though they didn't have a room available, pointed us in the right direction for lunch and entertainment until it was ready. Comfortable and well equipped. Electric bedding warmed our bones, and the kitchen-ette was perfect for breakfast,...

Thank you for your positive comments. Most people seem to enjoy the reception they get from our cats. They find our guests much more interesting than us - only coming to our flat when it's time to eat.

Stayed in a 2 bedroom unit upstairs, middle of winter. Appreciated the electric blankets on each bed. Cold outside but nice and warm in the motel with plenty of heating and blankets. Good sized kitchen, living space and bathroom. Friendly helpful hosts. Free internet but it was slow to connect and would drop out a lot.

We had a 2 night stay here. The staff were very welcoming and helpful. The 2 bedroom unit was small, however it was very clean and had everything that we needed. It was close to the city and I would stay here again.

Had a three night stay in a 2-bedroom unit here. Room was very reasonable, clean, and looked recently refurbished. Daily room cleaning was unexpected and to a very high standard. Have absolutely no complaints. Would highly recommend and come again.
