Booked this place as it was advertised as luxury apartments for our wedding anniversary...anything but! The spa bath didn't work properly and slime came out, their was a cigarette butt in the sink, linen smelt of cigarette smoke, the bedroom plugs were coming off the wall and had tried to be duct taped up, the final straw was going to...

Only room left I could find in Christchurch as all other rooms booked out and reminded me of an 80's motel with faux fur on bed and old fashioned everything's to match - The car got broken into outside in the car park and this is supposed to be a good suburb and the innkeepers did not even care or...

Really impressed with the rooms at Delago. Very large, clean & modern... and exceptionally clean. Good value for the price. Handy location to the city, so would recommend it for anyone looking for self-catering style accommodation. Only comment would be that the reception lets it down - Not a good first impression as it smelt of smoke & it had... More

Needed a room for one night that could accomadate 4 adults. Clean and tidy and comfortable. Close to the central city. Only negative is the small and tight car parking if you don't get in early you miss out , and parking on the main road is not an option. Will definately stay again

We stayed here for the last few days of our NZ trip and found the facilities were good and the added bonus of a washing machine and dryer was great to go home with a clean suitcase, although, they take a long time to dry. Bed was comfy and bathroom clean, my only complaint would be that the clean linen... More

Have stayed here last 3 visits to Christchurch and will return next time. I am here for work every 2-3 months and this place good. Clean, tidy, comfortable with modern decor. Top of Papanui Road so close to all things necessary. Wifi good and fast, Sky Television with multiple channels. Will definitely be back as moderately priced and good value... More

We stayed at the Delago for one night on our way out of the country after a 12 day South island stint. It was clean, convenient and the staff was helpful in checking us in and giving us directions for places to go to. It's a short drive from all the central locations and would recommend to others. Though we... More

I stayed here for one night as needed to stay near the CBD. Location is great with lots of great bars and restaurants close by. The motel was really good - rooms were clean, spacious and had everything that I wanted for my short stay. Great comfortable beds. A slight downside was the small sized flat screen TV. Great value...

I cant comment on the actual stay as we booked this motel for friends of friends for 2 nights. I made the booking through Booking.com.
