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!

Amanda and Gary were very accomodating. They look after their guests very well. Small things like putting the heater on before the guests arrived are very much appreciated especially during winter.
