We had a lovely stay at this motel. The owner who runs the place is a sweetie pie, so helpful and kind. The room was spotlessly clean and very comfortable. The bed very comfortable. We definitely come back again.

I spent more than a month in that place. I really liked it. Very friendly and helpful manager. The place which they have arrangements for meals is really nice. The room was clean and tidy all the time. Very close to Christchurch airport and many other places. I recommend for a nice and peaceful vacation in Christchurch.

This motel is great - clean and comfortable, easy access to Christchurch airport and simple access 'after hours' was easy to arrange. Lyn and her team are excellent and wiling hosts. I will stay here again
