Christchurch holiday

The hotel was very old and it showed. The room I had was at top of too many stairs. The room was sufficient. With a small table and 2 chairs- the chairs were uncomfortable and basically broken. The water pressure was poor. There was insufficient parking for a motor lodge. The best thing was the location. The staffs were friendly and helpful.

Good value for the money

I enjoyed my stay at this Motel although a bit of a walk from the bus but I guess most people drive. Very comfortable bed and all nice and clean. The kitchen and bathroom basic but OK. They say they are going to renovate which will be nice as its a bit tired but I guess the rates will go up then. Overall a good stay and I will go back there..

If you don't have transport then self catering is the way to go. There is a dairy over the road.

False advertising

We were booked into the deluxe one bedroom unit with disabled facilities - it was not deluxe, and the doorway to the bathroom was obstructed by the bed. No way could a person in a wheelchair even get into the bathroom. The bathroom was generally about a two star standard and needed upgrading. The bed in the lounge was not usable for anyone with disabilities as it was jammed up against the wall and also hemmed in by the sofa. Very disappointing and would not stay here again.

False advertising! :(

The room we booked was classed as suitable for disabled people - well it wasn't! The double bed (in the lounge) was hard up against the wall on one side and against the sofa on the other - not so easy to climb in and out of!. The kitchen was only a very small kitchenette - microwave and hot plates not full oven and hardly enough room to swing a cat, much less for a person in a wheelchair to get through. The bedroom with two single beds was also very small and one of the beds was right across the bathroom doorway - could only just walk around the end of the bed to get through and certainly no room to for a wheelchair.
