Excellent location, very uncomfortable beds

by utas2010 on 09 Jan 2017 (Family Traveller)

I wish I could give a better rating this motel, as location is absolutely perfect (it is right by the park, very close to downtown), the property is nicely kept, large rooms, passable WiFi, clean, altogether fine But, it is all ruined by the really, really, really uncomfortable beds. They are so soft, that they are almost waterbeds, making good sleep impossible. Since the main reason why you stay at a motel is to sleep (well in a family room anyway :-), I am afraid this means that the Aalton Mot...

Friendly and conveniant

A short business trip to Christchurch made all the more enjoyable thanks to the location and service of the Aalton Motel. It's only a short walk across the park to the city centre and located on main routes to the airport. the Motel is clean and quiet and close by to numerous good restaurants and bars and has near by shops for those self catering. Would definitely recommend and plan to return. The good room rates are a bonus as well.

Clean, comfortable motel

great place on Riccarton, one of Christchurch's busiest streets. Interior was clean and the kitchen was well equipped, even with an oven which we appreciated. The sofa bed was a bit creaky and stained though. The other beds were nice and comfortable and heating was good. 15 mins walk to Pak n Save supermarket, but lots of other food and grocery options nearby.

Good value walking distance to the city

We stayed here for 5 nights and found it really handy. It was close to Riccarton mall with lots of shopping and a stone throw away from Hagley Park. We had a two bedroom unit and it was spacious and clean. The free internet worked really well. Every morning we got the morning paper wich was really nice. It was rather cold outside but the unit was nice and warm.

Welcoming, clean, fresh.

I booked in the studio room and it's perfect. The new furnishings were modern. The room was well equipped, clean, welcoming and very comfortable. Staff were welcoming and helpful too. Great location too. Great restaurant across the road.
