Very clean, comfortable and modern decor. Geoff and his staff couldn't have been more pleasant and helpful. They went out of their way to help us especially with their local knowledge and advice for our journey around Canterbury.

Comfortable, well appointed, peaceful and with very charming hospitable staff. They went above and beyond in service for me during a crucial time professionally. (I had some work to finish) A nice place to sit outside on the grass in the Christchurch sunshine and a haven in the suburbs

Very friendly, quiet place to stay. Just what we needed for a one night stay. Beds comfortable, very clean, tidy, great shower pressure. Would like to return should we need to stay somewhere in Woolston again. Thank you.

The room was serviced daily, with trash removed and new towels given to us. The whole motel is rather old looking, compared to the other motels we have stayed.

The Motel is positioned on the outskirts of the city, but handy for the bus into the town centre. The accommodation is average but in need of refurbishment. The studio comprises a kitchen with microwave, boiling rings, kettle, toaster, cutlery and crockery; shower room with separate toilet; bedroom/sitting room.; TV.

I only went there to use the wifi quickly and the manager/owner was very nice and helpful, ended up having a nice 20min chat after about travelling New Zealand and Australia. Thanks for the help, I got there in the end. Would recommend for friendly staff

The Arcadia was in a good location for our need to be near family. It's not far from the road out to Sumner & Lyttleton, and conveniently located not too far out of Christchurch. The owners have done a nice job of upgrading both the kitchen and bathroom. A huge plus was sitting in a comfy recliner to relax and...
