Positive Reviews

Best Price In The Area

If you are looking for simple accommodations and a place to lay your head for a night or two, this motel offers the best price in the area. The rooms are large for the price and you receive more compared to other motels in the vicinity. You can request free Wi-Fi tokens and the free guest laundry comes in handy if you want to make sure your clothing is nice and clean for the next part of your journey.

The Location Works

Shopping is close by even though the motel is in a residential district. It’s on a main road, near the city, and pretty central. Buses are handily nearby and there is also a fish and chip shop, pharmacy, post, grocery store, and other conveniences.

The Bathroom Is Charming

You will find a nicely renovated bathroom. It’s modern fixtures with a deep bathtub and shower over it.

Negative Reviews

Housekeeping Is Not At Its Best

You may find that the linen is dirty upon closer inspection. For example, the duvet may have bodily stains all over it amongst other questionable spots. Don’t be surprised if the floor is not vacuumed, linens not changed, and you have to ask for clean towels. An overall deep cleaning is needed. What’s more, if you complain, the staff acts as if they are not interested in the least.

Tacky Furnishings

The furnishings need updating. They appear old and unappealing. In addition, utensils like cups may be chipped and shelves not attached correctly to the wall.

The Wi-Fi Is Unreliable

The Wi-Fi is the pits and unreliable. If you are depending on Wi-Fi during your travels to Christchurch, this motel may not be a good choice for you.
