Strathern Motor Lodge, Christchurch
A place like any other
We were booked into a peculiar attic-like room: lots of floor space but slanting ceilings, with a kitchenette, and a bathroom that fronted the road. After initial fixes to the heater and the outdoor lighting, the room was fine. The management was a little off-putting but not hostile or offensive. There are a lot of similar properties along this stretch, all seemingly identical in style (or lack of same) or amenities. Not entirely sure why this one was rated any higher than the others.

A unit tucked away in the back off the road so nice and quiet. A good 20minute walk into the CBD but weather was lovely so no issue for us.

Good hotel except one thing....
Its a really comfortable place and very convenient location as it is close to a supermarket. The bed is comfortable and the place is clean and tidy. The ONLY let down was the shower. The shower head is so small that its takes you ages to wash off the soap. I had to fill a bowl with water to make sure I could wash off all the body soap and shampoo out properly. I told the front desk so hopefully they will fix it. If its to do with trying to save water it doesnt work because all you do is spend more time in the shower to try and be clean.
