            • Family with children
              6.6

              We were there to deliver people to the Airport so it was on a transitory stay.Courteous service

              The facility we were in is getting a bit tired. We were in the older part and there are newer units on the other side of the courtyard and when they replace them all it will be great. Friendly courteous service

            • Family with children
              4.2

              There wasn't a lot to like, poor Christchurch is in a bit of a mess, we did find the buses easy to use.

              Not very clean, staff not very communicative, didn't contact us to tell us we had to have 2 separate rooms, they told us after we had paid, if our children had been younger it would not have worked. No key box to leave keys and no-one in office to talk to before 8.30am.

            • Couple
              8.4

              Despite of the inpact of the earthquake the owner gave us a warm welcome. Lot of space in the room and wireless internet.

            • Group of friends
              7.8

              Good hotel close to city center with all facilities.

              Nice room helpful people good price

            • Single
              8.8

              The reception was very warm, polite and friendly. I was made to feel very welcome. She was also very efficient to show me my room. When I checked out the lady there was also very courteous and efficient. No problems what so ever in terms of services, efficiency and location.

              Minor things like the shower rose was loose and it actually came off. The toilet lights were not working and actually the toilet did smell a little. A dettol spray would have solved that problem. Nothing major.

            • Single
              2.4

              my room as noisy with a staff member living next door having several visitors during the night. The room smelt damp and musty and there was also alot of traffic noise. The manager had given me a free upgrade without telling me it was free, I therefore didnt accept the upgrade as I thought it was going to cost me more. It wasnt until the morning that I found that the upgrade was going to be at no extra cost.

              The comfotable bed and it was handy to the show we attended

              The bathroom was quite dark and the expelair fan didnt really work very well

              Although the motel was clean it was a little tired and dated and a little scruffy

              The room was cosy and warm, the kitchen was stocked with tea coffee and milk. Perfect for an overnight stay.

              I could not connect to the internet in the room.

              It is on a main road

              Only half of every room's lighting were working or removed. Not even a working light in the kitchen. No soap were provided, only dispensers were availible. Soap were availible in one dispenser in the bath room over the hand basis. No soap were in the dispenser in the shower....I Found this out while I was wet and standing trying to get soap out of the dispenser. Eventualy I had to run to the hand basis's dispenser while I was wet and could. The continental braekfast was offered to be delivered in the evening and I had to warm it up the next morning.
