Good value for money if not wanting to spend a lot on accommodation, bathroom was a bit tired tho and could do with a renovation, no allocated parking for your unit which would have been preferred, room well serviced daily

Fantastic place to stay at a reasonable price. Staff were really great. Close to all amenities. Lovely continental breakfast which was delivered to us the night before. We were even offered to park our vehicle while we were away.

Very good spacious accommodation fully equipped. Laundry room and helpful staff. Very clean all round. Great location for getting in to Christchurch city as bus stops just around the corner. We were on first floor and could sit on the verandah to catch the sun.

LisaM, Search back and find my review of the motel from Jan16. You'll see that I too arrived on a JetStar flight at around the same time and did not get to the motel until 01.00. I'll be doing the same this coming week... More
LisaM, Search back and find my review of the motel from Jan16. You'll see that I too arrived on a JetStar flight at around the same time and did not get to the motel until 01.00. I'll be doing the same this coming week - another flight to ChCh - and the motel has arrangements for you to collect the key when you arrive. They also left the lights on in our room - so we could see where we were going. Some good plus points for management. It is, of course, essential that you make this kind of arrangement - by informing them of what you are doing, time of arrival and more. Enjoy your time in Godzone then. All good things.
