Pleasant Stay in Christchurch
The owner was very helpful, explaining the various ways we could get downtown. The motel is within easy walking distance of the railway station which is why we chose it.

World tour
One night stay as we travelled into Christchurch on the Coastal Pacific - but just what we needed. East check in - clean - quiet

Good stay but small room
We had a good stay here. They supplied everything in the kitchen and the bathroom. The room was clean. Staff was friendly. The rooms are very cramped though. With your luggage you might not have enough space to move around the room.

Convenient overall
Modern and well equipped. Good shower and kitchen area. Reasonable access into Christchurch centre. Major shopping centre nearby (Westfield). Uncomfortable bed - too hard! Quite a noisy position on a very busy road.

Wonderful motel. Very clean and fresh look. Location is great for the train station but not sure there is much to do there. Great for families.

8/10 Very good

This is an excellent property to stay if you are using the train. It is within easy walking distance of the station and when we arrived past dark on our return journey the room was nicely heated for us. The Westfield Mall is also within easy walking distance. There isn't a lot of living space, but it is ideal for a short visit.
