Great for city, station and great owner
Great location for Christchurch city break and proximity to station for the awesome Tranzalpine rail journey. Very good food nearby too. Accommodation ideal in every way but what makes this place really special is the owner Jessica who goes above and beyond to make sure guests have and know everything to make their visit work, even taking guests to and from the station if required.
Rosalind, nz1 night romance trip
Very good 8.0
Bit of an older motel but the service was excellent and the room comfortable enough. We even got dropped off at the train station as part of the service. Great location if you are planning on going for a Crusaders or All Black rugby game.

A gem!
A one-night stay before taking the coastal express up to Picton. On arrival, the manager offered to drive me to the station the next morning at 6.30 for free! Very clean, comfortable bed, a jug of fresh milk was provided (I love that touch!). About 20 minutes to walk downtown, through the park, for an excellent meal at the Old Government Buildings. I'll certainly stay here next time I come to Christchurch!

Excellent motel close to train station.
The manager waited until I got there, recommended nearby restaurants, took me back to train station the next day, although train station is less than 1 km from motel. The room is generous in size, has good kitchen facilities and is very quiet.

Nice rooms near the train station
This is the place to stay if you’re traveling to or from Christchurch by train! The room is huge and well-equipped and a Shuttle is available for all train arrivals and departures.

Really convenient for getting a ride to the railway station for an early departure - and they were willing and reliable for getting us there on time.
