Carol & Roy live on the premises of Focus Motel, and they are kind, generous and extremely helpful. Carol guided us in exploring Christchurch, finding places to eat, shop. The facility itself is very comfortable, well-kept and spotlessly clean. And it is very well located for self-guided walkabouts. Carol's best advice was a side trip to Sumner on the coast...

Have stayed here four times. Never disappointed. Clean, modern, friendly and quiet. Nicest staff imaginable. I won't stay anywhere else in Christchurch. There's a great casino just a block away, too! Great value at about $100 US.

Probably the cleanest hotel/ motel we've ever stayed in ! Lovely modern studio room , quiet location and gated so vehicles are secure . The shower was a dream - fantastic water pressure . Easy walking distance to Victoria Street for a night out or ,if visiting Christchurch a great central location . We wouldn't hesitate to stay again ☺

I stayed for a night on a recent work trip. The studio apartment is bigger than some of the average Christchurch hotel rooms. Being relatively new, it is very clean and well maintained. The motel is an easy walk to many of the great restaurants on Victoria Street, the casino and city centre. It was also very quiet ensuring a...

It is situated in a great location for visiting various historic sites in the city all easily reachable on foot. Close to great restaurants in Victoria Street, Deli...

Apart from the great location everything about the property was ideal. We had a one bedroom apartment style room with a small kitchenette, which was a perfect base for our fist night in NZ. We would have stayed at the end of our stay but the property was full. The owners were very friendly and welcoming throughout our stay.
