Loved the location. Close to shopping, banks & just around the corner from the park. Friendly staff, very clean. Comfortable. Could do with plumper pillows but that’s just my preference. Absolutely great place to stay.

The proprietors are really welcoming and lovely people who are willing to help in any way they can. The facilities are very well maintained and super clean. The unit felt like a home away from home with many small touches that welcomed you home, and items that you would otherwise just go without while holidaying. A great value accommodation!

Lovely pet friendly motel

We only had a one night stay but the room was comfortable and had everything we needed, the location was easy to find and within easy driving or walking distance of everything. The hosts were genuinely lovely. I would stay here again .

Great location

Pros: Very clean motel. Spacious rooms with everything supplied.
From this motel we could walk through Hagley Park to the city centre, or just admire the botanic gardens and walk home again. Excellent bus service with bus stop just a few metres from the front of the motel. Walking to Riccarton shops including Westfield mall was easy, with lots of restaurants and other sources of food in between. We enjoyed our pizza from La Porchetta.

Great customer service, fantastic location.

We stayed just one night when we came from out of town to bring our dog for surgery. I initially booked through WotIf but emailed and asked if it was possible to have our dog with us. They came back saying yes and explaining the conditions clearly- own dog bed, bowls, never to be left alone in the motel and a surcharge. All very clear and reasonable. Note: They don't just accept pets- it is on a case by case basis. Anyway, we arrived to find the motel in a fantastic location, right across the road from Hagley park and only a few doors down from a convenience store, fantastic Thai restaurant, and just up the road from Riccarton Mall. Despite this, our room was quiet and we had an undisturbed nights sleep. Older style motel but very clean room, warm and well-equipped with good shower pressure! Thank you!

Average

Pushing 2 single beds together and putting king sheets on it doesn't count as a king bed. Worst sleep ever.
