Pretty standard place but good value for money. One thing - it would be nice if the heater was turned on before arrival so you don't have to wait on the room to heat up to comfortable level.

Reasonable for the price.
One of my usual places to stay in Christchurch. Not bad, just a bit dated. Close to restaurants shops and the park. Reasonable for the price.

An average motel in Christchurch. The condition is ok, service is good. Could use better heating in the rooms on colder nights. Plenty of eateries near by. All in all ok for those nights working out of town.

our stay in Christchurch was excellent, weather was good, and the people were pleasant, our room was comfortable but needed a few repairs, unfortunately our room had no smoke detector which we felt was necessary.
