                5.8

                Excellent selection of cable tv channels which the owner is very proud of :)

              • Couple
                6.6

                Avalon is a family run motel and you'll be greeted by a husband and wife team. While the room is decently big, the kitchen is tiny. Overall a quiet and clean environment with a 24 hour milk bar just next to the accommodation for convenience.

                A bit run down on the outside but the renovated rooms compensated for the shortfall. Would do better if the rate can be adjusted down as similiar motels around are offering better price.

              • Older travelers
                9.6

                Very friendly and help manager who stayed up for our late arrival. Comfortable room with very good facilities.

                Having found a hotel next to the CBD in Christchurch for this value and especially after the disaster Christchurch was facing ,it`s a good deal.Kind regards Richard and all the best in the future for the City.

                9.6

                You have all you need and walking distans to towncenter

              • Older travelers
                8.2

                Goo value for money and handy for public transport. Manager was very pleasant and cheery.

              • Group of friends
                9.6

                The staff were awesome. We were collected from the airport with no additional charge and the journey back to the hotel was full of lively chatter. They were always on hand to offer advice and tips and even took us to the bus stop in the early hours of the morning on the day of our departure to make sure we got there safe. The room was nice and clean and full of all the everyday essentials that we needed. It was the perfect place to rest and adjust to New Zealand time.

              • Family with children
                10.0

                the facilities far exceeded our expectations and excellent value for money.the room was very comfortable and the owners were extremley kind and hospitable to us,would definately recomend this motel.

                There was nothing to dislike

              • Couple
                8.8

                This is a decent motel - clean and friendly with good sized rooms. We had our own kitchen and plenty of space and a good nights sleep - easy walk to the centre of town.

                Christchurch, sadly, is closed due to the earthquake - the entire city centre is still closed off and will be for months (years?) Some of the interior fittings are dated..but they staff are friendly, it is very clean, spacious and comfortable - happy to recommend

              • Older travelers
                8.8

                Privacy, Sky t.v. in room. Good kitchen and bathroom facilities.

              • Group of friends
                7.0

                Handy to where my family lives

                Kitchen floor very sticky under foot, mould in the shower

              • Single
                8.2

                42 inch TV and comfy bed

                Too far from my job but no fault of theirs.

              • Family with children
                9.6

                Very clean and good sized rooms

                Metal stair case leading to upper floor/apartment above the one we stayed in. Makes allot of noise when people come back in the early hours waking you.

              • Family with children
                8.8

                We arrived very late and the managers were very accommodating, with making our room available (arrived 1am) and had the heating on, was very nice to arrive to a warm room on a cold winters night. thanks

                next to the main road, so the traffic noise was a bit loud.

              • Older travelers
                7.0

                The price and location

                The room needs updating. It had very old looking furnishings, design and fittings
