Friendly host, clean room and well equipped, plenty of tea and coffee and cartons of milk rather than the tiny UHTs, lollies and cookies and big jug of cold water in the fridge, which is unusual and really appreciated!

Nice hotel next to the lovely park in Christchurch and a short walk across the park to the museum. Mr and Mrs Borodin were very helpful, even going so far as to drop us off and collect us from Christchurch railway station. We also thoroughly recommend the Indian restaurant Argy-bargy around the corner from the hotel.

Friendly and Helpful

Pros: Everything clean tidy and close to restaurants.
Everything was nice about this motel from the very friendly Lena who picked us up from the TranzAlpine train full of helpful advice of where to eat and offering to call a taxi in the morning for us. The room was already warm for us on a frosty Christchurch night, plenty of tea coffee milk and decent TV channels. Clean and spacious room. Did some washing and drying. Absolutely be back here when we are in Christchurch next time. 👍👍👍
