Great location in central Christchurch

Cons: Would have liked a better bed. Seemed like a firm double that we felt every movement.
Great location handy to lots of shopping. Nice big car park. Very well appointed one bedroom unit. Huge bathroom with great water pressure and plenty of shelves to store toiletries . We had a lovely stay and really appreciated the nice warm room on our return each day. Always a huge smile from the staff too !

Great motel

Pros: It was spotlessly clean, warm and in a great location.
Cons: We found the beds a little hard for our liking maybe buy a couple of topper-pads for those that like a softer bed.
We stayed at this motel for 2 nights. It was in a busy but great location. The road noise did not effect us at all. Good cafes etc close by. The two staff members we met were friendly and professional and very helpful.

Handy to Riccarton Mall

Pros: Very clean and quiet.
Cons: Not much.
Location: Only about 300 metres to Riccarton Mall. Nandos and Subway located over the road for good takeaway food.
Only stayed one night, but was very handy to the business meetings I had near the mall.
