This motel is a gem. The price was very reasonable, the location was right in town and close to the water, the room was spacious and clean and the owner and staff were extremely friendly and helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

We rang to make our booking and the owner was really friendly and helpful and also accommodating, as we were travelling with our preschooler and baby. The mid level room was really spacious, with good quality beds and linen, and warm and modern. It was also spotlessly clean. Excellent location - within walking distance to so many eating places and bonus to be near kids playground and four square grocery store. Very impressed and would definitely stay here again

First time in Akaroa and our welcome at the Criterion was very warm and friendly. Lovely spacious room, clean, every thing we needed. Great view of the water. Close to resturants and bars. Breakfast next door at the little bakery a must. Would love to make it back one day.
