Great Location, Great Staff!!

We used this hotel at the beginning and end of our trip, and we were well looked after. The location was fantastic, opposite the gardens and parkland, just a short walk from the city centre. Rooms were clean, and the staff were fantastic.

The young owner was so helpful from check-in to calling a taxi after check out. Room amenities are also good. And what they provided with welcome bucket, a lot of discount coupons. That's pretty nice.

Outdated Establishment

The hotel is in need of updating especially the bath area which is like being in an old Caravan Park from the 80's. Clean enough, but sadly in need of make over. Staff nice.

Parkside location

Although a bit tired, the motel was clean and comfortable, staff were friendly and helpful. It's a bit of a hike to the city centre (poor little Christchurch - what there is left of it), but we just drove around the park and parked at the Botanic Gardens. Restaurants very handy, and very straightforward to get to the airport.

comfortable but!

The people running the Motel were great, the facilities spacious clean and comfortable. The outlook from the motel great over looking the Park. The only let down was the noise from people and cars leaving the Running Bull Bar and Bistro next door between 10pm and 1am in the night and a domestic a couple of doors down at about 2am. So I would not recommend staying on a Fri or sat as well without a sleeping pill or running air con on high for grey noise.

Pleasant place to stay

Manager wasn't too pleased (not with us though) when we told him that we were only staying for one night. I did change it from two nights to one night, but they were not told of the change. Place a bit old, but clean.

smelly carpet

The 2 rooms apartment on the ground floor that we booked has good facilities (eg. 2 LCD TVs); but the carpet smell like it has been urinated on.
