The rooms had a strange old food smell to them which was disappointing. Staff upon check in were great but terrible when we went to check out. We were pleased we had lots to do during the days so we literally used the room to sleep instead of spending time there during the day.

Too far from city when you have no transport.

Stay was ok. No reading lights when in bed. Room was old and could do with bringing up to date. Fresh paint job and tidy up. Shower curtains are out of date now.

Close to town centre

This is an older Motel probably in need of a face lift but considering the damage sustained to Christchurch it is understandable that refits are not a priority or a necessity. Friendly and helpful staff, clean amenities and close to CBD. Casino runs a courtesy bus to and from which is a bonus.

Pros: Staff were friendly & helpful.
Very tired & dated decor. Bedroom Curtains missing hooks with cellotape holding it to wall. Blobs of fat on wall behind oven. Bedlinen smelt of cigarette smoke.

Pros: Great Wifi
Cons: Room renovated. Room service provided.
Location: Quiet location
Pros- quiet location. Free off road parking. great free Wifi. Cons- very old, all the windows had broken latches so didn't close right up. front door had lots of gaps around so cold air blowing in. Fan heater not able to warm room up so whole trip was cold. Was not premium bedding. Bedding was cheap and thin lucky there was electric blanket and spare blankets. Was only a fridge with small ice section not a fridge freezer as advertised. Fridge was turned up to full and froze all our vegetables which had to be thrown out. Had to buy own dish cloth so could clean kitchen. No room service for 3 days we stayed. one day they let us have 2 towels but we had no face clothes. No premium TV channels unless you class sky sport and 1 movie channel as premium.

Quiet and clean place to stay.

A pleasant place to stay, there did not appear to be many other guests, so it was very quiet. Very clean. Older style motel but well maintained. Easy 15 minute walk to city. Superette not far away.

Extremely noisy

The staff and some of their guests had a screaming match at 11pm at night, out side my room, the check out time was 10am yet they were trying to open my door at 8.30am to clean it, Would not come back and stay there at all, room was tidy, comfortable, but overall very disappointing. No one was there to check out, the shower was mouldy in the corners,

Near to city

Pros: Manager was attentive and apologetic.
Cons: Cleanliness, cleaning equipment for kitchen, move double bed to allow movement around the bedroom. Paint doors white. Recover floors.
Location: Located not far from city centre.
The main bed in our room was made up, but the linen was not clean. The manager was very apologetic and put us into an alternate room. The linen was clean in that one, but the kitchen utensils, chopping board, etc were not very clean, and there was no dish cloth to even wipe anything. The room was very tired with many damaged parts. In the end we didn't feel good enough about the kitchen to use it, so we ate out. walls are paper thin. Not enough room for the bed in the main bedroom. For the price I don't think this was value for money.
