We have just been awarded a Certificate of Excellence by Trip Advisor, which now hangs proudly on the side of our building in the form of a large banner. Look out for it, along with our landmark letterbox! 
Several weeks ago we also won an award for the garden - what a complete surprise that was!

oving these long warmer evenings and more of a chance to play in the garden. A great time for a bit of relaxing, especially in a motel with air conditioning! 

Remove some stress out of the silly season and take advantage of our cheap rates while we still have units available - spend less on accommodation and more on the "time-out" you deserve!
Base yourself here for the convenience of the nearby Northlands or Merivale Malls, or the short trip into the city centre. 

Our herb, flower and veggie plants are really starting to take off with this heat and our guests are enjoying watching the prolific growth. The courgettes, tomatoes and other summer goodies have been nestled into the garden between the flowering lupins and cosmos interspersed with the marigolds and pyrethrum daisies so as to avoid having to use any nasty chemical sprays. Last year there was an abudance of delicious fresh food in our main garden, with plenty of fresh herbs to feed every guest staying here - summer is indeed a wonderful season! More garden pics to follow shortly! 

If you're visiting Christchurch, let us advise you of all the local attractions that may be of interest to you. Both of us being Christchurch born and raised means we know our stuff! 

So, if you're looking for a quiet, peaceful and happy place in which to relax, contact us. Our units are not staying vacant for long these days, so if you do need to book accommodation, please be quick, as we hate turning people away. 

Some of the positive feedback from our guests include:

- our beds are some of the most comfortable in Christchurch
- our units are significantly more spacious than most others in Christchurch  
- the units are remarkably quiet, ensuring a great nights sleep
- the friendly, helpful and caring service is second to none! 

 Don't forget - book with us directly and get rewarded for your loyalty! Ask about our special loyalty offers.
