Good location for us as it was between town and fa

Pros: Location, ten minute walk to edge of town
Cons: Shower door needs adjustment in room 11
Location: Town on the door step, two Cafes even closer
All good, the shower door caught on opening but once fixed all will be well, seriously good water pressure.

Pros: Plunger coffee in the unit, and real milk from reception. Although not a new motel it is spottlessly clean, well maintained and welcoming.
Originally from Christchurch, and having worked in hotel's for 15 years i am probably more critical of accommodation and the location than most. This was our third stay at the Casino Court, and as usual we were greeted with a big friendly smile from Reetah,advising us on the facility's at Casino Court, the nature of our stay, so that she could tell us about any road closures, things happening in and around Christchurch, internet requirements etc.My family live in all four corners of Christchurch which means the central location of Casino Court, makes it easy to access all these areas with easy routes in any direction. And great onsite parking makes it a breeze to park whatever rental car you end up with. Once again it was a pleasure to stay with you both, and we look forward to seeing you again.
