We booked an executive one bedroom with a double spa bath. I found the owner/manager very helpful and friendly from my initial booking till we left the place nothing was too much trouble. Our unit was cleaned to a high standard each day even the dusting was done daily !!! We were there for 3 nights and enjoyed a luxurious...

This is a mid ranking Motel, but the service is five star. The owner, manager could not do enough for us over the three days we stayed there including doing our laundry as we were out every day. This bloke needs an award. Location is just outside the main town so there is a 15 minute walk to the main...

I was in Christchurch for over a month a week at a time and stayed here the first week, ended up staying here the whole time! First off, for me one of the most important things... shower pressure, the Milano is up there with some of the better showers and the spa bath wasn't a bad touch. Though I did...

We booked four rooms/ apartments to cater for all the family who were arriving in town for a wedding. Our hosts thoughtfully gave us adjoining rooms which made for a highly enjoyable weekend. Units were well equipped, spacious and clean. Convenient location that allowed us to get out and about easily.

This place surprised us; at quite a reasonable price the room is well equipped, very clean and tidy. It's handy to shops and eating places unless you want to heat up stuff yourself. We would definitly come back.

We arrived around 8pm without a booking with the family of 6. From the very first moment staff was very helpful, understanding and resourceful. Clean, spacious rooms, and friendly, peaceful surroundings. We had a great stay for the next 2 nights and I'm planning to go back the next time I'm around the area!

Stayed fir 2 nights at the beginning of our travels. Very comfortable. Highly recommend. Short walk to town centre, and attraction shuttle buses. Beautiful gardens. No air conditioning though. But we didn't need it. People who run the place absolutely lively and extremely helpful

Location - We were transiting in Christchurch before commencing our drive in the South Island. We were originally booked for Amross Court but it was overbooked and we were put up at Milano. The location on Papanui Rd was very ideal, though not exactly close to the city centre, but it had good food options nearby. Room - The rooms...

Attending a Rotary Conference in St Margaret's College so this place was ideal as only a few minutes walk to venue. Unit comfortable and clean. Better size of kitchen and dining area than in most studio units. Friendly welcome and lots of parking. Handy for walking to Merivale shops and short drive to central Christchurch.
