    Clean, Friendly but Noisy until Late

    unfortunately i didn't sleep well, the road noise was constant which may have been made worst by the weather. room was ok, starting to show its age but would have been ok without the noise for the price. I experienced a 4.2 magnitude quake which had shaken me a bit but no damage.. apart of every day life in Christchurch these days

  • 4.0.Fair

    Disappointed.

    Overall cleanliness was ok, but as per my photos, the curtains were not fully attached to the rail, the duvet cover was very creased and obviously un-ironed. The ceiling in the bathroom was coming away and had obviously been previously patched. The shower stool showed signs of mould, and the carpet between the bathroom and the bedroom was fraying and threadbare. I paid $450.60 for 4 nights and certainly don’t consider this value for money. I tried to discuss my concerns with the motel, but due to a language barrier this proved difficult.

    Good motel close to Riccarton Mall.

    Great spot near Riccarton Mall. Easy walk to restaurants for food etc. Comfortable with Sky channels. Good value for money. Check in and out easy. Would stay again. Although near main road didn’t really hear traffic.

    Small room

    We booked a 1 bedroom apartment but were given a very small studio unit. They were adamant that this is hotels.com had booked for us even though we had paperwork showing otherwise. There was not enough parking and they had nothing like the 50+ tv channels they advertise and the TV was pretty small. But it was clean and well located.

    We had a one-bedroom accommodation. The sitting room was tiny. The bedroom had a super-king bed in a small room. Heating worked very well and efficiently. Obliging host who arranged taxi for us to catch very early train. Even though the motel is on a busy road, the room as at the back of the car park so no traffic noise.

    The unit itself was pretty dated. The ceiling in bathroom was discoloured and mouldy with condensation on walls. Towels were threadbare in places, the bed was made roughly and generally the overall look of the place was tired. Even the plants were dead in their pots outside! I don’t normally write negative comments but this was just disappointing, compared to the pictures and what they offer on their Wotif page.
