Our first two nights in NZ and not too far from the Airport. Room was comfortable with extras (frypan, toaster, coffee plunger etc), and within walking distance of evening meal outlets. Traffic noise wasn't a problem even though we were on a main road.

Comfortable short stay, one night only. Room was clean and spacious and modern. Relaxing sleep after arriving at 1am in morning. Good location, only 15 mins from airport. Quiet location and owners very helpful.

Had a lengthy stay there previously as a family when our house was having earthquake repairs. Really nice and tidy units. Sandy and Greg were great hosts and went the extra mile to look after us - truly beautiful people who were so empathetic, especially with our son being very unwell. So I didn't hesitate to stop in for a...

Stayed here arriving late at night and leaving reasonably early the next morning. Location was OK for the airport and the service was pretty good. Whilst we arrived late they had arranged for the room to be available which was good.

I want to start by saying that the word "motel" has a different connotation in NZ than in the US. In the US, you never know what you'll get and it usually isn't great. You get what you pay for so to speak. In NZ, a motel, and we stayed in about 11 of them, is clean, comfortable, sizable, and...

We stayed at this motel in early December 2015 with family, 2 KIng rooms. The rooms were super clean, comfortable and had a well-equipped kitchenette with refrigerator and small appliances. Very friendly and helpful owners, provided fresh milk and or cream for morning coffee, and even offered to bring us to a grocery store the night we arrived as we...

I'm fortunate that Cranford Oak is both a great place and close to a friend of mine in Christchurch. It's easy to find and the rooms are spotless and there are various amenities in the bathroom. Sky TV is 'guest select' meaning you get loads of channels not just a predetermined few. The hosts are always great. The downside for...

This is a nice place to stay if in Christchurch for a stopover. We stayed for a night here on our way out of New Zealand. The owner is friendly and works hard to make your stay more comfortable. The room has been recently renovated so it is very clean. Close enough to city and the airport.

On arrival subjected to very friendly reception, found a comfortable room, safe parking and easy access ( by car) to central Christchurch. At good value I can recommend staying here. We did have issues with the neighbours TV noise levels, so if the management get to read this hopefully they can monitor late night noise levels a bit better, otherwise...
