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.

Good Hotel. Bird droppings on car.
Pretty good for the price. Room was big, nice and clean. Only problem was that they have assigned parking and the spot they assigned to us (#14) was under a tree and when we came out to the car in the morning it was COVERED in bird droppings, and I mean COVERED. Really gross.

Loved the location, the room and the service. The staff couldn’t have been more friendly and welcoming. Great place to stay

We had two rooms. Both were modern and in good condition. The Nespresso machines were a pleasant surprise. The heat pumps warmed up the rooms quickly on a cold Christchurch evening. One room had two beds in a separate room and a comfortable seating and dining area. The other had one room but there was plenty of room. This was the nicest motel of the four in the area that we have stayed at over the past five years.
