Within easy reach of the motel are the Christchurch Casino, Hagley Park, the Southern Cross and St Georges Hospitals, and Christchurch’s unique Re:Start shipping container shopping mall, as well as a number of new nightlife / bar venues. Merivale Mall, with its high-end shopping and fine dining, is just a ten-minute walk to the north along Papanui Road, and several other dining options are also available in the area immediately around the motel, with a chargeback service available at the Pavilions Hotel restaurant located immediately opposite us. Our handy central location also makes us a great base from which to explore attractions and activities located further afield around the city.

We have plenty of information available on what to see and do in Christchurch and the surrounding area. We can organise shuttles to the airport upon request, and there is a free shuttle to the Christchurch Casino.
