  • Family with children

    Small playground for kids, big room, kitchen very good

    Internet is horribly expensive and did not even work

  • Family with children


    Hotel was dated and the smell in the room was so bad it clung to our cloths the next day. We had to open all the windows when we returned from a night out.

  • Group of friends

    It was much more then what I expected for the price I paid for it. The staff has done a great job of keeping the place clean and beautiful..

  • Couple

    The room is nice and clean, kitchenette quipped and clean. Toilets are seperated with a door from the shower. Free parking.

  • Older travelers

    Very spacous and clean freindly owner

  • Family with children

    My daughter loved the trampoline and swing set - perfect for young families. Great sized 1 bedroom apartment with good kitchen for cooking, seperate toilet, good sized bathroom with a bath and seperate shower. Good sized bedroom - perfect for us with a comfortable bed and nice bedding. Great heating with a unit in the bedroom and living room and heat lamps in bathroom. Nice warm bedding. Perfect for a longer stay.

    What let it down was the fact that there was no earthquake info in the rooms or discussed by staff - some people (like us) didn't really have an idea what to do in an earthquake - and there was 3 while we were there. Mould in the fridge and on the bathroom cealing. Would have scored 100% in our books if it was cleaned slightly better. The EQC is redoing the rooms (which is fine for any hairline cracks etc...) but basic cleaning was dissapointing.

  • Family with children

    The large comfort of the units.

  • Single

    Close to botanical gdns and easy drive to airport

    Situated on a busy crossroads

  • Older travelers

    Plenty of room, bed very comfortable, clean

    Building shabby (owners acknowledge), not that near to eateries

  • Family with children

    Central location.

    Very old and tired motel. very noisy because major road on doorstep with cars revving engines on weekends particularly. The place needs a makeover.

  • Family with children

    The 2 bedroom suite is nice and spacious though a bit dated and could do with a refurbishment. Close to the city and airport though there is not much to do in CCH these days Good value if you are in town for a day or two.

    The parking is very cramped, we had a small Toyota 4 wheel drive, and it was a hassle getting in and out. The brochures etc. at the reception are about 6 years old... Not many places to eat in the neighborhood.

  • Older travelers

    The motel was a good reasonably priced studio, we stayed 5 nights and were happy in the room, Just a walk to the re-start mall and botanic gardens. my sister and her family had the 3 bedroom apartment for 2 nights at the same time and they were very happy with the size and comfort of the rooms,

    The room got very hot and there wasnt any air-conditioning or a fan supplied,
