Clean, comfortable, friendly service, comfortable bed, on a main rd so reasonably easy to navigate, 15-20 min from airport. Would stay here again.

Very Good8.0
Excellent stay at Cranford Oaks motel.
Friendly welcome at Reception. The room was basic but well sized although the shower cubicle did feel a little small. The room was serviced regularly and maintained the spotless conditions that we had found on arrival. Free Wi-fi was available through 1GB tokens via the Reception desk throughout the duration of our stay. A good breakfast selection was available upon request. The motel was on a bus route into the City Centre, making initial transportation very convenient- we did not have a car, but there were plenty of parking spaces. We would not hesitate to stay at Cranford Oaks motel the next time in Christchurch.

Great stay
Beautifully clean room and excellent value. Although a little further out of the town centre than we've stayed before there is an excellent bus service nearby if you don't want to drive.
