  • Single

    It was very quiet and yet convenient - on the main road. The room was clean, well decorated aand had a good supply of tea coffee milk etc. There is a heatpump in the room, so should cater for any weather. The bath/shower was ample with a spa built in, though I could not easily activate it, and had limited time to get the owner to advise me. The bed was comfortable. The tv had 2 Sky sports channels The owner was courteous and helpful with a compilmentary weekend newspaper

    I could not operate the spa bath - but that could have been my lack of experience. The tv picture was grainy, probably related to the arial signal

  • Family with children

    Quiet hotel. Nice facilities. Small but warm and comfortable and well maintained

  • Couple

    nothing special to like about

    i stayed for two nights, i use 2 glasses for breakfast and went out, when i went back the glasses still there despite the room service has heen done. the air condition was working, only for cool air, but never for heating, in a winter night! read through the notice on bathroom's wall and the guest information book, everything is about extra charges! sicked of it!

  • Older travelers

    The staff were frindly and professional

    No balcony

  • Older travelers

    We picked it for proximity to the airport. It is not in a choice location, and is not particularly spacious.

    It is not terribly close to any dining. It is a 15 minute walk.

  • Single

    I loved the location how it was close to the city, shops, and to the venue where my work trip was based, yet in my room, it was soo peaceful, quiet and luxurious, a real retreat after the stress of my work sessions that weekend.

  • Older travelers

    Staff was great and room nice size and very clean

    Location was terrible

  • Older travelers

    The rooms were newish, clean and quiet, central location to amenities we were attending

    Could provide tissues, otherwise perfect

  • Couple

    We loved our stay at Alpha Motel, we especially loved the staff and how helpfull they were with everything we needed. A very friendly environment. Overall just a really nice and relaxing weekend. We would definatly stay there again if we were to come back to christchurch.

  • Older travelers

    Spotlessly clean and tidy, very nice owner.

  • Couple

    Absolutely fantastic service. The manager got up at 4am and took us to the airport.

  • Older travelers

    Well appointed comfortable rooms, with friendly, helpful staff

  • Couple

    Nice, quiet, relaxing. Private. Clean, flash but not too expensive. It is our local Motel in chch now, we liked it the first time, liked it the second time. It will be where we stay each time we visit chch.

  • Older travelers

    Had requested 2 single beds, which wernt ready when we arrived and then charged us an extra 10.00 a night. We left heat pump on during the day as we were watching kids netball and it was wet and cold, the heat pump had been turned off by staff, we had to come back to a cold room. The room was very small had one loung chair which only one person could sit in, no coffee table.

  • Older travelers

    Very comfortable big bed. Pick-up service from the airport. Nice room. Friendly owners.

    Shower curtain did not help keeping the water inside the shower unit. It splashed everywhere.
