    Nice suite with separate bedroom

    Chose this location because it was a bit out from the centre of Christchurch but not too far. Suite was comfortable and clean with separate bedroom.

    Great Heatpump and great shower pressure

    Very nicely presented room well away from the main road so not too noisy. Excellent Heatpump which is a bonus as not many motels have these unfortunately. Easy parking and friendly staff. Shower pressure was excellent but the wet room style shower meant whole bathroom floor got wet and no extraction fan meant bathroom very steamy-was worried the effect of this on paint work-didn’t affect my stay but maybe something for owner to think about. Would stay again
