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...

We were two couples who stayed in Christchurch in November 2016 - and we had two rooms at the Southern Comfort motel. During our visit the motel was fully booked the 4 nights we were there - it was the time of the Christchurch A&P (agriculture and produce ) Show - so the town was busy. We had two rooms...

I stayed for four nights. The motel is comfortable, and the staff are friendly. The kitchenette in the motel room is very well-equipped. The bathroom had good water pressure. Everything was very clean and well-looked after. Late night check in was easy to arrange. Staff were very helpful in organising keys for a late night arrival. The motel is well-located...

The rooms were good, we had 6 girls visiting so all stayed in one room, however the bathroom had a strong smell of Mould and needed some love. Missing panelling on the floor, visible Mould etc please give it a good clean and improve the extraction of steam!!

Check in and out was prompt and quick. We got the upstairs unit and it was clean and had a sofa bed. Kitchen was fully equipped with all utensils provided. There's 2 heater in the room and living room (Thank God!) No problem with parking, abundant space available. Reception staffs were friendly. Definitely recommended. The only downside was the traffic...
