The rooms are simple but very clean and are serviced perfectly each day. Staff are very friendly and quick to offer travel tips. Close to city centre - Riccarton road is the perfect location in Christchurch. Would definitely recommend.

The host at this property is very welcoming and helpful and the service was great. However, the first room I was given I walked into and there were someone else's suitcases on the bed, which was a concern. There was no problem in being given another room, (an upgrade) which fortunately for me moved me to the back of the...

Myself & my partner had only planned to stay one night, but with the amazing price, great service and clean room we extended it to 3 Nights. Couple were so friendly and offered me umbrella so I didn't get wet. Room was big and spacious, shower dome was amazing.

I would recommend the Comfort inn as a convienent and clean stay near the CBD. Free, Wifi, easy parking, great cooked & delivered breakfasts right to your room, owner operated who do a good job. One let down was the compendium although stating free spa for guest use "ask for the key at reception" is incorrect as they only have...

Easily one of the best accommodation services available in Christchurch. Modern and spacious room, clean bathroom, fully functioning kitchen area (microwaveable), fast internet, Satellite TV, easily accessible from major shopping areas and friendly/supportive reception. (Many special thanks to the staff again) I would love to stay here again when I visit the city. Definitely recommended.

I spent one night here on business. I was in a ground floor room with parking right outside, which was convenient. The room was smaller than I expected. It was also cold so I cranked up the heater. The next morning there was more condensation than I have ever seen, there were puddles of it on the window sills.

We stayed two nights in this motel. We required a simple unit but, although the motel boasts 28 units, we were told when we booked that we could not have the same unit two nights in a row but would have to vacate between 10 am and 2 pm. We then decided to pay extra and upgrade to a unit...

Stayed for a night and from the outside it wasn't super appealing but the rooms were great! The lady at reception was super helpful with everything, she made the experience much better! The rooms are a good size, nice big bathroom and a comfy bed! Good wifi is a huge plus also :)
