AA+ Highly Recommended
Extremely impressed with our stay and will return as a regular.
Lyn, nz1 night trip
Very good 8.0
Good value for a couple of nights.
The motel is very close to the centre of CHC and Hagley Park. The room was away from the street and very quiet. Had a shower over spa in the bathroom. Shower pressure was excellent and I liked the spa bath. The room is functional but the furniture is a bit dated and the room could do with an update. The bed is only ok and appears to be quite old - not sure why moteliers don't upgrade them more often as a good sleep is what you are after. Wifi was excellent and good selection of tv channels. Parkingbspace outside room but access a bit tight. Overall it was good value for the price of the room.

Strathern Motor Lodge - a great place to stay
Everything about Strathern Motel Lodge makes it a place I would be more than happy to go back to, and to recommend to everyone who wants great accommodation in Christchurch. Very clean, very welcoming, with fantastic staff. The area was very close to good shopping and since the weather was fantastic, it was an easy walk away. Great restaurants in the area as well, which the staff were able to recommend from personal experience. One very special thing was the way we were accommodated by staff when they learned that my daughter was having surgery and would not be able to manage being upstairs afterwards. it was no trouble to move us to a downstairs unit. Many thanks to a brilliant stay.

We were only there for night but I can say it was a pleasant stay.
Jackie, nz1 night business trip

Handy and comfortable stay
Great accommodation. Very comfortable and even though a busy street having the bedroom out the back meant it was surprisingly quiet. Would stay again.
Marcus, nz2 night business trip
Very good 8.0
A unit tucked away in the back off the road so nice and quiet. A good 20minute walk into the CBD but weather was lovely so no issue for us.
Sandra, nz3 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
Good hotel except one thing....
Its a really comfortable place and very convenient location as it is close to a supermarket. The bed is comfortable and the place is clean and tidy. The ONLY let down was the shower. The shower head is so small that its takes you ages to wash off the soap. I had to fill a bowl with water to make sure I could wash off all the body soap and shampoo out properly. I told the front desk so hopefully they will fix it. If its to do with trying to save water it doesnt work because all you do is spend more time in the shower to try and be clean.
Kenneth, nz2 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
We had two rooms. Both were modern and in good condition. The Nespresso machines were a pleasant surprise. The heat pumps warmed up the rooms quickly on a cold Christchurch evening. One room had two beds in a separate room and a comfortable seating and dining area. The other had one room but there was plenty of room. This was the nicest motel of the four in the area that we have stayed at over the past five years.
