Perfect Room! Great Customer Service!

by bpaxson54 on 18 Jan 2017 (Family Traveller)

We stayed at the motel on Christmas Day. Being brand new to NZ, and with everything closed for the holiday was a bit challenging. Our hosts, Lindsay and Rose, were very accommodating in helping us make the most out of our limited options for getting out and about that day. They even forgave us for our President-elect, knowing that we came from California and were part of the "blue" vote. The room was exceptionally quiet and comfortable - we all slept really well and a full kitchen and nice, ...

Gorgeous gardens

I travelled through Christchurch and spent the night at this motel twice. I chose it because it is pet friendly with some rooms designated to dog lovers, with the rule that doggie bags are needed and the dogs cannot jump on the furniture and have their bed with them. What a friendly helpful couple . Nothing was too much trouble. The first room I had was a standard and the second a studio . Lovely white sheets and plenty of white towels. A spotless interior and the bed was divine. The showe...

Lovely Stay...

by musgr0ves on 03 Jan 2017 (Family Traveller)

The final days of our NZ holiday were rescued thanks to Garden City Motel. Checked into our Christchurch accommodation at a different motel and were so appalled we immediately looked for another motel. Found Garden City and were extremely happy with the clean, spacious rooms, comfy beds, making for a very pleasant stay. The owner very graciously allowed us to check in at 9am so we could escape our other accommodation. Highly recommended if you're after a nice room with excellent facilities.

Nice and Quiet but left a sour taste

I arrive and 1st thing the lady at reception tells me I paid too much for room through Expedia, that did not worry me, she asked me if I wanted an upgrade. This is where we went wrong. I thought great so said yes and she proceed to tell me it would cost $10 more which was a deal no biggy I thought but when checking prices later that night to compare what I could have saved directly with her I found the upgraded room was cheaper if I walked off the street. My fault, I must be a sucker but the own...

One night stopover

by Sharni P on 23 Dec 2016 (Couple Traveller)

It was a nice little room with everything we needed for one night, although there was no hot water for the shower (only the tap). I'm not sure if it was the way we operated it or not, but there was only one normal tap in the shower and while it was marked 'hot' we could only get cold out of it. Anyway it was refreshing and we were alright with it because it wasn't a very cold night. Everything else was pretty good, thanks.
