Love this well maintained motel ”

Clean, Comfy and Reasonably Cost

My friend and I had a wonderful stay here. It's a motel but feels like I'm staying in a luxury hotel. The room is clean and well decorated. They even have a spa/Jacuzzi bathtub! So relaxing after a long day walk at Christchurch. Supermarket (Countdown) which opens til midnight is within 10 min walk from the motel. Host Carol has 20 over years of running motel business and she is very friendly and helpful. Her assistant manager, George, is just as friendly and helpful. They provide free airport transfer but do arrange with them earlier. Carol came to pick us up at CHC airport and George fetch us back to the airport. Had a good chat with them during the journey. Highly recommend this motel for your stay at Christchurch.

Great stay at 315 Riccarton”

The staff, especially Carol was very helpful. location, clean and tidy studio.

315 Riccarton is a clean and tidy motel with great staff, the studios are compact but were adequate for our 2 night stay. Carole goes out of her way to help her clients and this is the wonderful thing about not staying at a hotel chain, you get personal service. I had requested airport shuttle and this was provided. Thanks to Carole for the lift, much appreciated. The location is good, the city centre is a 5km walk. There are shops & restaurants within walking distance around the motel. I would stay here again.

Great place to Stay”

very clean, helpful staff

We booked a 2 bedroom apartment for 2 nights but when we arrived it was not available but they offered us two single units which was not very satisfactory for our needs as a group but they worked hard to satisfy us and in the end provided 3 accomodation units which we were happy with and provided us with the rooms we needed. They did apologise and worked hard to ensure our stay was pleasant and comfortable. The accomodation was very pleasant, it was very clean and comfortable. It was a good location to stay for visiting Christchurch. In view of the mix up I would still stay again at this motel because everything else was excellent.

Nice spot, upgraded to 1 bedroom”

Right on riccarton road, 5 minute drive to the mall and easy to the airport . On arrival I was upgraded to a 1 bedroom unit which I was appreciative of. The room was spotless clean with spa bath. Good facilities, including fridge, hot plates and microwave. For a 1 bedroom it was on the smaller side but great for just me. 1 small gripe would be that although the living room had full sky tv, the bedroom only had basic freeview channels. I would recommend this place.

Best experience ever”

For the money I paid, it was the best motel experience I’ve ever had. Central location, spacious room with outdoor furniture on the balcony (first floor). Very friendly n helpful staff. The room is clean, tiny n new n equiped with everything u would need to have a nice stay n some light cooking. Even two luggage stands! I stayed at a hotel on the same street the night before which was marginally better but 40% more expensive, so I’ll definitely come back again as I pay for my own stay.

Modern and spacious room; free wifi; close to supermarket and community mall

Great stay. We have a one bedroom unit on the upper floor. The room is very nice. There is one bed in the bedroom and a small bed in the living room. It has small kitchenette which is more than enough for us. The location is good. It is within walking distance to community mall with variety of restaurants and grocery store. There is a shuttle to/from airport. However, I think the shuttle starts at 7 or 8 in the morning. If you have early flight, you will need a taxi which costs around $30. We will stay here again if we are back to Christchurch.

Convenient and clean

We stayed here for 2 nights as it was conveniently located near to christchurch. The rooms were newly furnished with well equipped kitchen and bathrooms. The staff was also very polite and helpful and assisted us with our change in room to a ground floor unit even though they had to agree it with another guest. The rooms may however be a little small for those with many luggages.

Very comfortable room, handy for the airport and with helpful staff

We chose the motel because it was convenient for the airport and it offered a shuttle service. We arrived at 7pm, wanting to find somewhere to eat, and the young man at reception recommended the nearby Spice Paragon, within walking distance, where we had a delicious meal. In the morning it was really easy to arrange our lift to the airport and the lady at reception was very helpful. The room was very nicely furnished, clean and comfortable.

Really enjoyed staying here at this Motel. Very hard to find a fault. I loved that it was a quick few minutes walk to the Restaurant Hub that has a meal to suit everyone's taste buds. The room we stayed in was spacious and clean with all the facilities needed. Only request I have would be a few more selections of teas in the tea box eg. Green Tea, Chamomile, Ginger Lemon. We would definitely stay here again.
