New & Comfortable accomodation, excellent value”

Location, room comfort, service

I was nicely surprised by 123 motel. It's walking distance from train station (just 14 minutes). Very convenient location just block from Westfield shopping mall - and not even far from downtown area - about 15-20 minutes nice walk getting through Botanic Garden to downtown. Motel is new, rooms are spacious, comfortable bed, functional bathroom, TV, internet without limits for free, small practical kitchen area and enough privacy. Excellent customer service, fast check in without any time taking administrative procedures. Daily room cleaning service. One minus was noice from the main road - but at the end it was not a big deal for me as I was falling a sleep fast anyway... This location was much better than my expectations, so far the best what I did experience during my travel in New Zealand. Excellent value. I recommend this place.

Exceptional”

I was picked up & dropped off at the railway station by the owner & even upgraded to 2 bedroom. This was fantastic. My only concern was the beds were a base on the floor with mattress on top which made them hard & they had no electric blanket on them. They did have oil heaters in each room but my daughter was not comfortable with leaving them on all night. Therefore we only used one bed. Other than this, it was a great location being close to Westfield mall in Riccarton.

Great price for the location”

We had the cheapest studio room. Its a great location, just one block back from the Riccarton Mall. Only a few minutes walk from lots of different restaurants. The room was simple but had good heating (we stayed in Winter) and underfloor heating on the tiled areas which was a bonus. Also electric blankets on the bed which we did not need. Kitchen was basic and traffic noise was a bit loud BUT given the price and position we are not complaining. We would stay there again.

Nice little Motel, Brand New”

Clean, Good Parking, Location

Motel is very new, rooms are small, but very well-equipped for the price. Breakfast included in just bread for toast and cereal that they bring the night before, but enough for most people. Motel is probably only a year or two old, and kept up very nicely. The pictures almost don't do it justice.

Reception was unattended when we arrived at check in time, which was after 2pm. We knocked at the door and immediately a staff or probably the owner appeared. From there everything was in a breeze, no filling up form, no credit card deposit, our room was ready. Big, comfortable room with kitchenette. We've got everything we need. Car park is free. Location can't be better. Will record this for next time we come to Christchurch.

Location, tidy and new

The hotel was sat on Riccarton which is only 10mins away and restaurant and shopping mall in walking distance. Hotel was very new and tidy. We were travelling in group so the room was just about size for us. The panel heater was broken but we were given as a substitute. Good service and very affordable!

Good clean hotel ”

The room was good, clean white bedding and towels, good effective modem bathroom. Confortable bed and location good for both the city centre and shopping. Although it has independent seating, they were of little use to watch TV or eating (bed faced tv chairs under TVs and faced bed, neither was there table to eat at, leaving little option but to eat whilst sitting on the bed, ok but just not ideal. Staff were pleasant yet we had little or no interaction with them other than checking in and out. All in all a good hotel and would both stay again and recommend to others.
