Perfect place to stay in Christchurch. Really good location at 10 minutes walk of the city center. Great kindness of the staff at the reception, studio perfectly clean and well equipped. Beds really confortable that allowed us to enjoy a peaceful night. We stayed one night yesterday and will come back tomorrow evening after Kaikoura. We couldn't more recommend this motel and its owners.
We stayed here just the one night after a long coach ride up from Dunedin. Upon arrival we upgraded from our queen studio to the spa one bedroom apartment and were very happy indeed - the deep, hot spa bath with lots of bubbles was just what the doctor ordered. The apartment was warm and cosy when we arrived, very nicely decorated in neutral tones. There were two superb leather recliner chairs to relax in - so we were both comfy. This is much better than the poxy two seater sofas that usually feature in properties at this price point. The kitchenette was spotless and had everything we needed to prepare an easy dinner and our own breakfast with supplies we brought with us. Very comfortable dining chairs and table as well. Nice toiletries in the bathroom, quality linens on the bed. The bed was too firm for our taste but will no doubt suit many travellers - and it was only one night. Nice carpeting throughout. In the bathroom, both bath and separate shower were immaculately clean and the towels were a great size - very luxurious indeed. Pamela was on the front desk when we arrived and again when we checked out in the morning - a very welcoming and helpful young lady. Absolutely a five star experience for the price paid and we wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this place as a good one-nighter or even for a few days as a Christchurch base.
We drove to Christchurch and had booked Country Glen Lodge in advance. This property was a pleasant surprise. This is more like a motel and service is limited, but we had a comfortable stay. The suite was clean and comfortable. The kitchenette was fully equipped with all required cutlery and utensils. In all the stay is very self sufficient here. Recommended if you are transiting across Christchurch and need a place for a good sleep and rest.
We stayed in Christchurch for 3 nights and chose the Country Glen Lodge for our stay. Only about 5 minutes from the city center so quite convenient for us. The Unit was a two bedroom with a double bed and a single bed in each of the two rooms - so adequate sleeping for 6 people plus the single bed has a trundle underneath so comfortable sleeping for even more. The kitchen was quite well equipped and enabled us to cook for ourselves for a couple of nights. Handy if you’re on a budget. The toilet is separated from the bathroom but the Hand basin is in the bathroom. We stayed in Unit 19 which was well away from the street noise and conveniently right next to the laundry. We did one wash - $4.00 for washing machine and $4.00 for the dryer. Not the classiest accommodation we have experienced on this trip but the unit was comfortable, convenient to the city and at a reasonable rate.
Lovely motel, clean, modern, and spacious with easy off-street parking and friendly staff. I would love to stay here again, but the free Wi-Fi is beyond terrible. By far the worst Wi-Fi I have encountered in years. It was literally unusable. I could only successfully connect one device at a time, and even then the signal was so weak it continuously disconnected – and when I finally was connected, the speed was so slow I couldn’t do anything except download text-only emails. Even email attachments couldn’t download. If you want to watch streaming video or even just browse the web, forget it. I had to buy a data pack on my phone and use that instead, which added $20 to the cost of the stay. Do not stay here if you need to use the internet.
We recently spent 8 nights here in a 1 bedroom unit. The beds were amazingly comfortable! Bathroom could do with an upgrade but was clean and well maintained.We also had a comprehensive kitchenette meaning we could do our own breakfasts and some night meals in the room. Staff were friendly and room was clean. My only criticism is the "lounge " which was a 2 seater fold away bed had a ridge across the edge meaning it was uncomfortable to sit on for more than half an hour or so.
This was our second stay at Country Glen lodge, this time we booked two bedroom unit for two couples travelling together. The unit was spacious and well appointed with large flat screen TV, full kitchen facilities and very comfortable beds. Would not hesitate to stay here again when we return to Christchurch.
The room we stayed in was large, had 2 recliner armchairs and table and chairs. View of neighboring houses. Bathroom was big and had lots of hot water in shower. The hotel is on a main road that is very busy, but the room was not noisy during the night. It is within walking distance of restaurants in Victoria St and also a good walk from Cathedral Square. The lady in reception was friendly and helpful with directions.
Stay in this property was great. Beds were very comfy and great location. Big size family appt. Airport is just 20 Mins away. Great place to stay . We came from a long tour of South island and we stayed here before travelling back home ...a perfect end to great vacation!
Nice friendly reception, the room was adequate clean comfortable and sunny. Nice location handy to Casino Cathedral square and shops. There are a lot of Motels in this street. We enjoyed our stay and feel we got good value for money.
