Check Out 1000hrs
Getting There From Christchurch International Airport, a Blue Star, First Direct or Gold Band taxi will cost you around $35.00 (there is a $7.00 surcharge for taxis to depart the Airport). We recommend that you only use one of these three companies. If you have a rental car, travel from the airport along Memorial Avenue into Fendalton Road. Turn right at the 'T' at Hagley Park and proceed through the next intersection to the round about at Riccarton Road. Turn right into Riccarton Road and proceed for about 250 meters where Lorenzo Motor Lodge is on your right at No. 36.

Driving into the city from South or West, proceed down Riccarton Road from Main South Road or Yaldhurst Road. Lorenzo is at 36 Riccarton Road on your left. From the north you will enter the city via Papanui. Turn right at Bealey Avenue and cross the bridge into Harper Avenue around Hagley Park. Turn right into Riccarton Road at the round about and Lorenzo is on your right some 250 metres along. We may be able to meet flights or the trains so please ask at the time of your reservation or nearer the time of your arrival.
Parking Free off-street parking close to your room is available for one vehicle. If you have more than one vehicle and/or a trailer, these can be accommodated upon request. The car park is covered by 24 hour security cameras with recording data.
Things To Do Some of Christchurch's best attractions are within 20 minutes of Lorenzo Motor Lodge.

The Antartic Centre located near Christchurch International Airport will intrigue you for around 90 minutes. Enjoy a ride on the Hagglund tractors used at Antartica and enter the ice room which is a simulation of life outside on Antartica. We hold a concession family pass for entry to the Antarctic Centre.

There are two wildlife parks where you can see animals first hand. Orana Park where larger animals of the world range in the open or are caged and Willowbank where young children can get up close to number of New Zealand animals and our famous icon the Kiwi. We hold 10% discount vouchers for you and your family to visit the Willowbank Wildlife Reserve. Here you can enjoy the 'Ko Tane' Maori Cultural display (voucher not applicable for 'Ko Tane') before or after dinner.

The Christchurch Tram and Gondola are easily accessible from Lorenzo. We hold concession passes to both of these attractions.

A brief walk will have you in the Botanical Gardens where you can hire a boat for a paddle on the Avon River or a quiet punt with some one else doing the pushing.

Christchurch is well off for recreational activities including, quality golf courses, jet boating, snow skiing and of course the many and varied conducted tours throughout and around the city. These can be arranged by your hosts, Mary & Mike Small. If your travel plans are taking you south, we can pre-book your tours to Fiordland (Doubtful and Milford Sounds) with Real Journeys, who are specialists and come with excellent accreditation for tourism in this area. There is no additional charge for this service at Lorenzo.
