We only stayed here for one night, but it was one of the best places we stayed during our South Island trip. The unit was lovely, they had made up another bed in the lounge for the children. Everything was provided in the room, if you plan to cook. The reception staff were both nice as well. There's a swimming...

Very happy with this Motel. If you can get room 18, do so, ask for It!! You will not be disappointed with this room, beds everywhere, two bedrooms, kitchenette, nice bathroom, heaps of room to move. Room 18 would be great for a long stay.

This accommodation has large rooms, comfortable beds and good facilities. There is quite a lot of noise due to it being close to the highway and a bar. There are a few eateries around and it is about a 20 minute walk to the city centre. Overall it is a nice place to stay if you are passing through Christchurch.

I was a little hesitant to stay here after reading some of the comments but took the plunge and so pleased I did. I stayed here from the 3rd - 5th December so it was more of a place to rest my head each night and for that purpose it was excellent. Positives: The room [22] was one of the...

Stayed in mid December in a 2 bedroomed apartment with 2 children. Cost $180 per night for the 4 of us. Rooms were very good sized and clean, but it was pretty noisy even though it is at the back of the property. Got woken by the sirens lots. Boys had a swim and the pool was freezing. I would...

We've just spent 2 nights here, and gone home tired and disillusioned. The decor isn't just worn, the walls have dirty marks on them. The towels are pretty well worn and tatty, the bathroom had mould starting on the walls, the shower door wouldn't shut properly and the carpet is getting threadbare to the stage the fixing poke through and...

Very nice one-bedroom apartment at rear of property, (Room 9) with nice balcony overlooking a lovely tree/garden area. Tranquil. Room clean and tidy with everything expected in an apartment. Room is however in need of a overhaul (lots of scuff marks on slider doors, inside doors and some walls. Whilst these are not major they detract from the overall impression....

My partner and I stayed here for 3 nights, the morning after arrival, i noticed the Pool was dirty (full of debris and dirt). When asked if they would clean it while we were away for the day I was told 'no we clean in a month'. I repeatedly said I would like to use the pool on our return...
