Positive Reviews

Friendly host

The motel's host is very friendly and goes out of her way to make guests happy. Visitors report that she is willing to give local recommendations and will even watch guests' luggage for them after they check out.

Conveniently located

Since the hotel is about a 20-minute walk from Christchurch's Central Business District, travellers appreciate its location. Visitors find it easy to make their way around the city from this location and say that shopping and restaurants are close as well.

Large suites

Rooms at the motel are large and come with kitchen facilities, which travellers like. Guests appreciate having a little extra space in which to relax whilst in Christchurch.

Negative Reviews

Thin walls

A great effort should be put into soundproofing the rooms, according to visitors, as they report being able to hear traffic from the road and guests in other rooms. This noise makes it difficult to sleep at night, particularly when others travellers aren't being courteous.

Have to clean dishes

Guests don't like the fact that the motel asks them to clean their own dishes in the kitchen prior to checking out. Visitors also report that the dishes don't look clean, as the staff doesn't bother to wash them when previous guests forget.

Old and dated rooms

The rooms throughout the hotel are dated, as the furniture is run down and the decor is old. Guests feel as though a renovation is needed to improve the overall quality of the motel.
