Good location. Had everything we needed.

Fair 4.0
Family Christmas Holidays
The location of the motel is excellent and within only a few minutes walk into the centre of Christchurch. The quality of the beds however were terrible and so soft both my partner and I had to sleep on the floor. We had 3 rooms in total as a family and all beds were the same.

3 Day stay.
Nice place to stay. Was tidy and cleaned each day. The water pressure was the only bad thing about the room.

Exceptional 10.0
This motel was more than adequate. Not particularly flash but for the price it was fine. Very accomodating patron who let me in after hours and fixed a window latch immidiately when it broke. Comfortable bed, quiet with double glazing, clean. Maybe an extra blanket in case you need one.
Katherine Cave, nzOther trip
Very good 8.0
A tad noisy outside the room with a table for other guests to gather. Their late night drinking meant less sleep for me.
