I received a very warm welcome... and help in sorting a taxi for the next morning. Room was clean and comfortable :)

Wonderful Motel Stay
Gary and Amanda were amazing hosts and made us feel so welcome in Christchurch! From the warm greeting to great suggestions on food and touring, they were a fantastic introduction to the area. The room was very spacious and we loved the design aesthetic - very cute! The electric blankets and towel warmer made us nice and toasty when it was rather cold out. The newspaper and chocolates in the morning were just lovely, and our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer. We hope to come back for another visit!

Very pretty little motel
It was such a pretty place! Very clean. We had a two bedroom suite and it well worth the little bit extra money it cost. It was close to the Sunday Riccarton market, which was also cool to see. Would definitely recommend.

Highly recommended
It was just an overnight stay, but from the moment we stepped foot on the property to the time we left we felt like old friends catching up with our hosts. The room was clean and really nicely set up. It felt private and safe around a grassed courtyard. Highly recommended for families and business who need to be close to the airport.

Couples holiday in New Zealand
Couples holiday in New Zealand. Christchurch was our last stop. Chose this hotel based on reviews on and I was not disappointed. Conveniently located and good value for money. Very friendly and helpful hosts from a family run operation. I stayed in the roadside studio, which understandably was a little noisy but still comfortable. All the rooms have a kitchenette which is very convenient. The studio apartments do not have a table for meals inside which is a slight inconvenience. The hotel is located close to the Airport which is handy for early morning departures as in our case. It is approximately a 10 minute drive to the City centre. Free parking available at the Hotel. Overall a very comfortable stay.
