Positive Reviews

Friendly hosts

The hosts at the motel provide a warm welcome and are very helpful at all times. Guests are happy with the service that they receive from the hosts and find them extremely friendly.

Great location

The location of the motel is a huge positive for travellers because it is close to numerous cafes and restaurants, in addition to being about a kilometre from Christchurch's Central Business District. Guests find it easy to get around the city from this position and mention that public transportation options are nearby.

Large suites

Having access to large suites with separate living areas and kitchens is a bonus for visitors, as they have more than enough space in which to relax when travelling with family. Guests are appreciative of the size and layouts of the rooms at the motel.

Negative Reviews

Noise in the rooms

Since the motel is centrally located and along a major road, there is a lot of traffic in the area. Visitors say that traffic noise is present in the rooms at night and this makes it hard to get to sleep.

A little dated

Travellers complain that the rooms are old and dated looking, as the furniture is past its prime and the kitchen facilities are due for a replacement. Guests say that it is about time for a renovation at the motel.

Poor heating facilities

Although the rooms are equipped with heaters, these units don't work well enough, leaving guests feeling cold during the winter.
