Easy walk to train station and eating places
A handy location within a 5 minute walk to both train station and eating places which suited our 18 hour stop over in Christchurch. Room was modern, spotlessly clean, kitchenette had the necessary items for a short stay and an outside seating area off the room was a nice bonus.

A VERY helpful owner, nothing was too much trouble. It is a superb immaculately clean and comfortable motel with lovely unexpected touches and a superb shower. A car is not needed to stay here, (although there is good parking), it is within easy walking distance of the railway station, good bus connections ( including purple line bus direct to the airport ), supermarket and shopping mall. Highly recommended after a three night stay in February 2020.

The staff were so helpful and very welcoming. Our room was just gorgeous and was great value for money. Our stay was very quiet considering all the rooms were fully booked, so is well sound proofed. Would certainly recommend to other guests.
