I had a very comfortable stay at Kauri Motel. The bed was extremely comfortable, and it was a particularly chilly night in Christchurch and I was perfectly warm. I would definitely recommend staying here and would choose to stay again.

Best stay in Christchurch - no traffic noise but in very popular Riccarton! Friendly staff - very clean room. Bed was very firm. Room was nice and warm. Located across from Riccarton mall - supreme location.

Helen was very friendly and helpful with a nice touch being a lovely muffin on arrival.The room was perfect, in fact we were upgraded to a spa room which was great. With the sound proofing there was no traffic noise and it was a bonus having the shopping mall across the road.Also it was on the bus route. We actually...

During our stay the room was always spick and span . The bed was really comfy and just the right size for us. When we needed something to buy stuff it was easy since the mall was just across the road. There are quite a number of restaurants and pubs around the area. Kauri Motel's location is near or central...

This is a conveniently located motel. The room was extremely clean and comfortable with everything we needed for our stay. The hosts were very welcoming and helpful. Even driving us to the airport to pick up our rental car. We couldn't recommend it more.

Accomodation was clean and comfortable but a little cramped. Info said rooms were soundproof but this is not the case. On a busy main road and you had to close all windows to reduce traffic noise but still noisy. Air on unit above bed and if left on blew into your face and very cold. Owners were very helpful.

Thank you for a lovely stay while visiting our children in flats where we don't stay!! You made us very welcome and you were so helpful thanks. We now know you offer a complimentary pick up service from the airport and have a car for hire. Your location opposite Westfield Riccarton Mall is excellent. Our room was very clean and...

Staff were very welcoming when we first arrived after a long journey from the UK. Room was very comfortable and convenient for shopping and travel into Christchurch and the surrounding area. One small criticism was the size of the kitchen area which was cramped.
