Really pleased with the experience

Pros: The layout of the room, the cleanliness and the heating. The kitchen facilities and the large bathroom. even undercover parking close to your room.
Cons: The front of the motel needs to look more up market and they would attract more people. It certainly was lovely at the back.
Location: Good coffee shop, cafe and restaurants.
We were really impressed by this motel apartment. It was tastefully decorated, the heater and lights were on when we arrived and the kitchen was fully stocked with good coffee and milk. It was very spacious and clean with lovely little touches of a basket full of goodies for the bathroom. Wi Fi was free and good strength.

Great Value Motel

Pros: value, clean, space
Cons: Just a bit of painting on the outside to give it a freshen up.
We stayed here for two nights with our son whilst visiting family in Christchurch. The motel is easy to find and easy to access even on a busy road. We had a room at the end off the complex away from the road so the noise did not bother us at all. There is great parking for cars. The room was huge so we all had enough space. The room was extremely clean. We would recommend this motel for those that are looking for a great value place to stay.

concert trip

Pros: easy bus to city, very short walk to Horncastle Arena, 15 mins walk ( or bus) to westfield shopping centre and Tower junction shopping area. several takaways on street and couple of pubs. It was very quiet, comfortable and convenient, especially if you have no car.
Cons: nothing - it was perfect for our requirements- we had no complaints it was comfy, warm, nice bathroom and Tv and internet
Location: fantastic location for all sorts of reasons - see above. also very quiet and off the main road - felt very safe but all you need close by.
