Guest reviews

  • Group of friends

    Room was clean and staff really really nice.

    The heater was only in one of the two rooms and not enough for the bathroom so a bit cold in the winter. The bed was way too soft and the sofa too.

  • Group of friends

    Staff very helpful and cooperative.

    Shower needed tightening. Shower door unit 103 needed third panel.

  • Single

    Convenient for our office location, nearby shops and eating facilities I was there on a quiet night and was upgraded

  • Older travelers

    the room we saw on the website did not reflect the room we got. it was much older and the couch was suitable for a flat only. shower area very old and kitchen facilities very dated.

  • Group of friends

    Very handy to shops and central location.

    Found the room very noisy late at night, I did not ask for another room so can not conplain!!!

  • Older travelers

    Very disappointed , was extremely noisy , people partying all night, traffic noises bad, them about 2/3am sounded likes guests arrived in and motel staff chatted to them outside our room ,bathroom heater missing (just wires hanging out) very dangerous,cheap energy efficent lights in bathroom , had to wait til they lit up. Kitchen light not working, and alarm clock didnt go off at set time for our flight.Overall would definately not stay again

  • Older travelers

    Really big flat screen TV and DVD player. Modern, clean, attractive bed set-up, comfortable, plus helpful attendant. Easy access to a variety of eating places and shopping centre all along the same street. Room was well soundproofed too.

    It costs $20 - $29 each way to and from the airport in transport fees. That's not the Motor Lodge's fault but just something to factor into one's budget. If we went back to Christchurch we'd almost certainly stay there again.

  • Older travelers

    Central location . Price .

    Walls not sound proof . T.V next door kept us awake . A no no for early morning flights .The heater did not appear to be working on arrival , the assistant bought up a tiny oil heater , and suggested we get into bed and turn the electric blankets on !

  • Family with children

    The large TV.

    Quite cramped for a 2 bedroom suite. No heater in the WC, so you had to endure the cold while taking a dump. Also the parking is dangerously narrow, especially those between the pillars.

  • Older travelers

    It is clean and close to the park, an easy walk to restaurants and shopping centre.

    The furnishings are miss matched and the sofa was old and very uncomfortable. The room was serviced but none of the consumables replaced. The cost to use the phone was very high compared to all the other motels we stayed at.

  • Single

    Only stayed one night, however it met my needs and I enjoyed it's proximity to Hadley Park and enjoyed a very nice meal within walking distance of the Lodge.

    Would have appreciated a shuttle service to the airport.

  • Older travelers

    Nice quiet units, interesting decor. Entirely adequate for short or long term stay

    Could do with a bit more lighting on the stairs at night.

  • Group of friends

    Hi actually I think I was over charged for my stay should have been 120.00, but think I payed 174.00????

    Noisy at night with drunks walking home

  • Single

    Quiet accomodation close to amenities and transport in Christchurch. Will come back next time I'm in Christchurch.

    The only comment I would make is about the lighting - light bulbs - only 40w - hard to read at night in both the lounge and the bedroom. Would be good to increase the bulb wattage or have a reading lamp available for those who want to read.

  • Single

    I did not enjoy my stay very much - it was very noisy. The room was in need of repair - broken/loose tap in bathroom, vinyl all loose and coming apart. No extra information in the room. Very uncomfortable couch - like a rock! Pillows like rocks, uncomfortable. Room seemed budget but was advertised as deluxe! I would not stay here again.
