Located on the outskirts of Rangiora, and very close to MacDonalds, Pack N Save and right next door to the Brook bar and eatery on the way into town, Riverstone Motel is one by far the best motel I regularly stay in, in Canterbury.

The manager is professional and courteous but also a funny guy! Although not located in the centre of the town, none the less it is convenient to... More

Even though this motel is on the main road, the road noise isn't too obvious. The one thing that SHOULD be mentioned is that this motel backs onto a pub carpark ... and THAT can be noisy. Very welcoming staff. We stayed two nights in the two bedroom unit upstairs. Good size living space with two sofas and a single... More

We had a great weekend stay for a family wedding - rooms are spacious and well maintained - having a back courtyard was great for some late summer night drinks too. Highly recommended and very friendly owners. This motel is mint ! Will definitely be back
