Booking cancelled with no reason given. When we phoned we were rudely told 'have you not heard of the earthquake" Well.. yes, we have you arrogant man. Dont show your rooms are available if they aren't. We visit Chch several times a year but we wont be using this place!

These motel/ apartments are the best accommodation i have ever stayed in. My partner and i have stayed here on multiple occasions and will continue to stay here whenever we are in christchurch. This is the sort of accommodation you could only wish you could find every where you stayed. The owner/manager strives to keep his accommodation clean well serviced...

Our family felt so blessed to stay in such a wonderful motel on our visit to Christchurch. We were "lucky" to be guests on the night of the 10 earthquake at the start of 2012. Having always known earthquakes, most of the hotels showed building fatigue from all the tremblers of this region; not so The Randolph. I can highly...

We had a very bad experience at the Tuscana Motor Lodge (1 Star) and found this motel the next morning. The owner was very accommodating and the place was immaculate. We had 4 of us in a two bedroom unit and it was plenty of room. Recommend highly. A little more expensive than some but worth it.

We have stayed here a few times and are always pleased with the apartment size and facilities provided . Very good value and close to both what's left of the city and the Merivale Mall and restaurants. Very friendly staff as well. No noticeable traffic noise from Papanui Road.

I would thoroughly recommend this motel, which offered everything I was looking for. Good value, excellent modern and tasteful appliances, spa bath, free washing and drying facilities, clean rooms done everyday with lovely clean towels and flannels. Would stay again.

I recently stayed one night at this Motel with my daughter. The room was clean and spacious, with electric blankets and a heat pump to ensure we were warm on a cold night. In the morning I asked advise on where to eat breakfast and headed there on checking out. I accidentally left my I phone in the room and...

Our trip to Christchurch was a 9 day stay as part of a 2 month trip to Australia and NZ. Whilst in Melbourne on 22 Feb we heard about the dreadful earthquake in Christchurch and wondered whether we should go there as planned on 9 March. After much discussion with friends, family and Peter we decided we would follow our...
