We have stayed here before and it was clean and tidy and we were happy with everything and thought nothing of it. Then we had a baby. We have returned and the Lorenzo Motor Lodge has been amazing. Suddenly we are really aware how clean and lovely it is. They provided us with a brand new portacot all made up... More

We recently stayed two nights in a one bedroom suite. The unit was compact but having x2 two seater sofas meant we could both relax. Unfortunately there was a strong odour in our room and it would have been good to open the sliding door onto the balcony, but the people in the room below us were smoking outside and... More

This is the second time we have stayed here and both times we've been impressed. It's fantastically clean, the staff are friendly and it has everything you need. Last year we stayed in the studio and this year we stayed in a one bed and both apartments have been of high standard. Will definitely use again!

Efficiency unit with microwave, sink, and fridge. Noisy with train, traffic and garbage pickup. Balcony is very small. Queen bed. Combo shower /tub. Front desk very nice. Near a great breakfast place.

Three adults staying at Lorenzo Motor Lodge for 6 nights. Superb attention to detail, immaculate housekeeping and linen replenishment. Each day we returned from regional trips the heating was on and all curtains pulled, so cosy to return to. Car windows were cleared with water each morning to remove ice. We chose an extremely cold mid winter snap to visit... More

Ping and her team provide a fantastic Motel Accommodation experience. My work required me to be in Christchurch for 8 nights and I was working long hours.

Pros-We had four people staying in a 2 bedroom suite. It was clean, spacious, well appointed and comfortable. The bathroom had a great spa bathtub. Cons- very few and minimal. The heat worked better in the main rooms than bedroom but the beds had electric blankets.

We had a 2 bedroom which slept 5. The beds were comfortable, the motel was close to the botanical gardens and there are plenty of restaurants around. The room had a mini kitchen and they provide coffee, tea, milk and sugar.
