3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Clean with comfortable beds. Staff are friendly and helpful, especially Hannah and Bronny. The motel also has a guest laundry which is very good convenient. Ask for a room away the main road and air cond room is extra. Very centrally located.

We stayed one night at 136 on Bealey and found it to be clean, modern and spacious. The Motel is situated on a busy road near the centre of Christchurch but with a room around the back we found it reasonably quiet, except for boy racers during the night on the street. The owners were very friendly too. Parking is available as is free wi-fi and a well stocked kitchen. We would stay here again given the chance.

We booked it at c. 150nzd a night for a short layover before heading to Franz Josef the next day. The hotel is nicely located 15mins from city center and has a Thai container takeout place right across the street (highlight for us). Room we got was meant for 4 people and is next to a noisy highway. However that didn't really bother us. There are no lifts in the motel so hauling up and down the luggages are gym sessions for those that require a workout during their vacation. Room and bed are clean and comfortable. Room also came with an adequate kitchenette. To top it off, the front desk is always all smiles and free parking is available at the back of the motel. Shower comes with hot water and nice pressure.

We arrived from a late flight for a one night stopover. The key was available but no parking space. The room was on the second floor so we had to navigate stairs with a lot of luggage. The room was adequate for 4 people however it is situated on a very noisy road so it was a sleepless night for us all. We will not stay here again.

We had a 2 night stay.we were lucky to receive an upgrade to a lovely king spa room facing the back away from street noise.everything worked well.fab spabath and rose head shower.clean room with mini kitchen.even electric blankets.only critisicm no tissues and no bickies. We rented a car with go rentals and found the city great to get around, although parking is ticketed. Christchurch is beautiful even when raining and only 6 degrees.

Great motel, service was lovely and the overall specs of the room itself was really good. Super clean and warm with a heatpump. Had all the ammenities needed, tea, coffee etc and easy access to outdoors.

We had to book 2 rooms for 4 nights at last minute and the staff moved other people around to accomodate us with connecting room. The room was made up each day and the staff are great. Absolute value for money and would recommend to anybody staying in Christchurch

Lovely motel. Good service and comfortable bed. However the rooms are directly on Bealey Ave. The traffic is constant all night long, trucks, racing cars, yelling, people roaring past. Not ideal if you ae looking to have a decent sleep.

We stayed there for 3 nights and I can definitely recommend this motel. There was a problem at the beginning because we booked a twin room and we were offered a double one. In fact, there was no problem because the receptionists immediately gave us another room - much bigger then the booked one. The whole apartment was big, very clean and with all facilities we needed, tea, coffee, sugar, milk were also available.

We had a second floor room overlooking a busy road so not so attractive for enjoying the small balcony. A older style well run motel within walking distance for breakfast & dinner establishments. A nice flat walk into the CBD and the re Start area. This is the area of new buildings and the 'Container' popup shops, a very unique feel with the shop keepers upbeat & positive .
