Hi Margaret, Thank you for the lovely review and high recommendation. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay with us. All our Twin Rooms have beds which convert to a King and we are limited with the amount of room in these units. We hope to see you again if you are visiting Christchurch.

A modern, clean motel close to the airport. The free transfer service was great and the staff were all very friendly. Would certainly recommend it.
