This no fuss motel is close to the airport, has a high standard of cleanliness and excellent, friendly and helpful service. The rooms face West and it makes for a lovely setting in the summer in the evening.

A great place to stay if you want to be close to the airport. Clean, warm and tidy with comfortable beds. Good pressure on the shower. The continental breakfast was value for money. Thanks Lynne for your hospitality.

Great little motel, everything we needed, nice and warm, has WiFi and lots of TV channels, and the receptionist/manager was people. 5 minutes drive from the Airport, close to Riccarton mall, near the city edge so easy to get on the road and 24 hour has station next door for the emergency supplies.

Nice and clean and welcoming, very well priced. Will be staying here next time I'm in Chch. Absolutely immaculate room, well heated, and a compact yet very nice bathroom. TV has most of the good channels, Wi-Fi is very quick and doesn't drop out.
