We arrived late in the afternoon and were greeted with a friendly smile, prompt service and an offer to call local restaurants to see which were open (it was a Sunday and new years day). Our large ground floor room had a very clean kitchenette, was well stocked with soap and towels and crockery, and the bed was very comfortable. We walked out to a local Chinese restaurant recommended by the owner which was fab. The motel was extremely quiet despite our room overlooking the car park; so much so w... Read more

Stayed twice in December during a tour of the South Island and both times the owner could not have been more helpful or welcoming. She went out of her way to help us and i would recommend to anyone , we stayed as a family of 4 , the rooms were clean , had sufficient room and facilities and was very easy to reach by car and handy for the train station nearby. Theres not a lot about in the immediate vicinity but the nearby Speights was good for a family meal and there is a Westfield shopping centr... Read more

Family of 7 booked 2 rooms for a weeks' holiday. Hosts were lovely, very accommodating and helpful. The 2 adjoining rooms were clean, we'll equipped and serviced daily. Nothing to fault, a perfect choice for accommodation..

the apartment is clean, spacious, very well maintained, and the lady of the house is so helpfull, I would recommand it to everyone who is looking for a good place to stay for a few days. The City centre is a 20 minuten pleasant walk and if you go with the Alpine train you will be picked up and dropped off there as an added service.

Nice small motel. I think about 10 rooms. Reception was very friendly and very informative. We were upgraded from 1 bedroom to a 2 bedroom apartment. Rooms were nice, cosy and clean. Beds and pillow very very comfortable. Bathroom was big and clean with an excellent shower and running hot water. Fully equipped kitchen. Basically this was a home away from home. Great restaurants and also bus transport just a few mins walk away. Greatly located place with very quiet surroundings. A great pl... Read more

Location good for TranzAlpine train. Hosts will drive you to station or it is a short walk. Not many restaurants nearby but Speights is good. Accommodation exceptional. Ours had large bathroom with jetted tub,

An ideal location close to buses and the train station, and there is a variety of restaurants within easy walking distance. The owner was very friendly and helpful and the shuttle to and from the train station was an added bonus. Our motel unit was clean and spacious - towels changed daily. Would definitely stay there again.

Good tidied place, well presented. Great location and shopping areas. Could do with another light switch in lounge, the only one wasn't in best location. Shower was over a bath, making it harder for elderly person.

We had three separate one night stays here on our recent five week trip to NZ as we used Christchurch as an overnight stop off point as we moved around the country. It is a comfortable, practical motel. Certainly well located for the railway station, but also sufficient eating places available within ten minutes walk. Rooms and parking good, but the star of the show is Jessica who is the perfect host and helpful in every way (including a free shuttle to the station). We can definitely recommend.

This is a very clean, modest motel that is close to the train station and thus super convenient. The owner is very nice and accommodating. She met our train in the evening and took us back to catch the morning Transalpine. Could not have been more helpful, and we really appreciated it. Also, many choices nearby where you can walk to dinner. Perfect place to stay between train trips.
