3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Stayed at 136 on Bealey for only one night when stopping over in Christchurch. Brony was extremely accommodating when we requested early check in and was more than happy to help. Staff were extremely friendly, room was clean and tidy and hotel was in a good location, short drive to CBD. Many coffee shops, restaurants and takeaway places nearby. Would recommend 136 on Bealey for a cheap and easy stay.

We stayed for 3 nights and our room was very comfortable. Shower was hot with great pressure and the bed was comfy. Could not enjoy the outside patio because it was raining. Good location, a 15 minute walk to town. Thankyou so much for the full ice cube trays in freezer much appreciated for a cold drink.

Really enjoyed our stay at 136 on Bealey Ave. We were a group of 10 & there was plenty of room for us all & we were well looked after by Brony. She was friendly and helpful. We would definitely come back

We spent three nights here whilst doing things in and around Christchurch. Room was large with good facilities. Not the newest, but clean and beds were pretty comfortable. I can sleep like a log anywhere so might not help much if you are a fussy sleeper. Whether was very warm and the upstairs would get quite hot. We didn't see air con or it was not there, so the only drawback was the warmer rooms, but otherwise good value for money. Won't break the budget and getting into the centre of town is less than a 2 minute drive. Overall a stress free stay, didn't see a lot of there staff, but when we did they were helpful and friendly.

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.
