    Fabulous

    The concern and helpfulness of the owners. Christchurch suffered another earthquake on the afternoon we arrived (13 June). The owners told us to ring them any time we were worried, and put us in a ground floor unit. There was a strong aftershock in the early hours of the morning and the owner got up and came down to check that all guests were okay. They did everything they could to make us comfortable, despite the worry they must have about the quakes. We were safe and I'd recommend the motel to anyone.

    Very good

    Helpful friendly reception staff who went that extra mile and drove us to our wedding venue thus saving us a taxi fare. this was much appreciated given that it was pouring with rain!

    Superb

    Party of 8 (4 couples) stayed in the lodge and it was perfect. The comfy lounge chairs was perfect for us to chat and socialise in and the rooms were spot on. We also loved the close proximity to the spa and entertainment area.

    The cook top was not the best and could be worth upgrading. The top shower was ok but for tall people the sloped ceiling beams was hazardous.

    I think that location is perfect. Close to the city center. Unfortunally.. Christchurch has been damage from the last earthquake.. So I cannot tell nothing more.

    Superb

    The lodge catered perfectly for our needs. We were a family group with older children and their partners. The stay was relaxing and the family lodge had a well equipped kitchen with a dishwasher. The living area was adequate with a good sized tv. Two bathrooms were a must and the four bedrooms were all comfortable. On our return we always found the unit had been serviced and the towels replaced. We found it quite central for many activities and within walking distance to Hagley Park, some shopping and coffee/restaurants. I would definitely recommend the family lodge for any larger group.

    The only things I can think of are that the spa jets were not working. Maybe the decor is a little tired in the living room and the bedrooms. It could be lightened up a bit - we did find the living area a little dark. Also the bathroom downstairs was rather chilly due to the gaps around the door.

    We stayed at the Camelot for an overnight before traveling on in the South Island. The owner, Brian, was extremely helpful.

    Superb

    The stay was great thanks to the hospitality and dedication of the management who have been always helpful to an extent never encountered before. It is really nice to be welcomed in such a friendly and efficient manner. Makes you feel almost like home ore at some friends place. The unit was really perfectly sized and arranged and also makes you feel at home. A great place, very close to the city center, highly recommended.

    The location was ideal for the places I would be visiting. Public buses operated on the road at the front and there were a number of nice cafes and eating establishments nearby.

    The owners/managers could not have been more helpful. We stayed quite soon after the earthquake and they were able to tell us what was still available for us to go and see and make the necessary arrangements. Also liked free wifi and ability to print (also free!)
