Show Week's over, so it's time to plant out the summer garden here at Garden City Motel! 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! We're booked out again this weekend, but we still have vacancies for next week, so if you're looking for a quiet, peaceful and happy place in which to relax, touch base with us. The units are not staying vacant for long these days, so if you need to book accommodation, be quick, as we do hate turning people away. 

Feedback from guests suggest:

- our beds are some of the most comfortable available
- the units are quiet, so a great sleep is ensured
- the service is brilliant! 

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

Welcome to the Garden City Motel, highly recommended by recent Trip Advisor reviews for excellent customer service and fondly known as “home away from home” to our many returning guests. Garden City Motel has exceptionally spacious and sunny units which are all smoke free and serviced daily to a high standard - come and experience for yourself the many reasons why people love to stay here! Great for business or pleasure. Free Wifi, free local and national phone calls, free booking for all trips and free, well lit off street parking, two disabled units. 6 Sky channels and all other free-to-air TV channels. Laundry facilities available, free use of BBQ, outdoor seating areas. Being an environmentally conscious motel, we endeavour to use chemical free products, where possible. Sample our yummy organic fair trade coffee from Peru while you’re here!

Being set back from the road, the motel offers genuinely quiet units allowing for a great sleep, while the main road offers the convenience of public transport, with a city and airport bus stop only metres from the front door. Free shuttle to and from the Casino. We can also arrange transport to the airport, train station etc. Our location is great; we're situated roughly halfway between the central city and Christchurch airport (both approximately 10 minutes drive). We're close to Hoyts movie theatres, St Bedes College, Papanui gym and pool, Northlands Mall and Northwood and Merivale shopping centres, Burwood Hospital and the beach. Costas Greek Restaurant, Joe’s Garage and the Lone Star Bar & restaurant are just 2 of the many eateries that surround us and we’re one of the closest motels to the Papanui Workingmen’s Club. Good proximity to the Antarctic Centre, Orana Park, Willowbank, Ko Tane Maori Village, Clearwater, Pegassus and Waitekere golf courses and many first class wineries. 90 minute drive to major ski fields. Kiwi hosts, who speak fluent French and partial German. Members of the Motel Association NZ. Short and long term guests welcome. Long term EQC enquiries welcome also.
