I reviewed this place back when it didn't have many reviews, and always hoped to be back one day. Seems like it's caught on and has had some upgrades in the meantime. To me it still feels similar, more of a home-like place compared to some places, and I like that. We were in a studio room this time, not...

So luxury style of apartment style room. Whole my family member of 6 like this motel so much. Fully furniture, clean room, unlimited fast WiFi, no need wait for the loading or buffering, comfortable environment. Own self kitchen, bath room and living room.

Conveniently located, far enough away from the rebuilding but near enough to access the city centre. The units are compact but fully equipped for self-catering and spotlessly clean. It's chief asset, however, is the staff, who were all incredibly friendly and helpful, whether it was pointing out what was in the area or helping us with the laundry! A very...

A very modern looking room perhaps recently updated greeted us. Very nice facilities and very comfortable bed. I frequently have uncomfortable nights sleep when away from home but not here. Very helpful and friendly hosts. Free wifi functioned quite well

We have stayed at the motel twice,12 months apart and it has always been brilliant value. Clean and comfortable and is within an easy 15 minutes walk into the city centre. Rick the owner is helpful and a typical laid back kiwi. Well recommended for a night or several

We stayed one night recently at the Admiral Motel on Bealey Ave in Christchurch. It was a hot day in Christchurch, and we really appreciated the thoughtfulness of the staff on check-in.. Seeing we were wilting a bit in the heat, they offered to change us to a more shaded and cooler unit and brought a fan. So kind. Whilst...

A great place to stay, close to the city and the park. The beds were very comfy and the hosts welcoming and friendly. We got picked up from the Train station (having come from Greymouth on the Trans Alpine) and dropped off a the airport to fly back to Sydney. What a service!

The owner Rick was kind enough to come with his own car to catch up in the airport, to bring us to the shuttle for Antartic Center and to drop us to the train early morning fou our departure. All that with the smile and for free. Rick if you read us thks for that we really appreciated. Chantrelle family...

This motel was easy to find and we received a warm welcome from owners Rickie and Rick. The city is more or less on a north south east west grid and Bealey Street about two or three blocks north of the centre. We were well able to walk into town, about 15 minutes, and found an excellent pop up restaurant...
