Older motel. but well maintained. Close to all we needed to do. Supermarket not far away, city not far away, airport close enough. Staff helpful and friendly. Good price for size of room and amenities.

Average old Christchurch motel
Last minute booking so went y price. The place was cheap enough and the condition reflected the price. typical 1970s place with mostly original fixtures. The bathroom had a partial upgrade but that was it. The shower had to be rinsed down to remove the hair before using. The tv only had basic channels. The fridge was really noisey and the little column heater barely knocked the chill off.

Cool hotel staff
Arrived early and early check in wasn't a problem. Asked to use the hotel laundry and they told us to go sightseeing and did our laundry for us. Internet was free and fast enough to watch Netflix.
