Accommodation in Christchurch, New Zealand (Rosewood Court Motel)


Our first stop in New Zealand was Christchurch, after landing at Christchurch Airport (duh!). For the first night, we stayed at Rosewood Court Motel. And I must say that I love the “vacancy/no vacancy” neon signs.🙂

Name: Rosewood Court Motel

Address: 85 Sherborne St, Richmond 8014, New Zealand

Rate per night: $200+ we got a significant discount – long story)

My rating: 4.5 Ki out of 5 Wis (mainly because of the friendly owner)

Thumbs-up:

  • 20-min drive from Christchurch Airport
  • Off-street parking right under the apartment
  • Friendly Korean owner who is more than willing to have a chat or two. He gave us good recommendations for activities too.
  • 5-min walk away from the supermarket, restaurants, bakery, etc (walk out of Rosewood, turn left and walk straight down)
  • Two super-quiet heaters with heated duvets for the beds
  • Spacious apartment with fully equipped kitchen (electric stove and microwave)
  • Clean cooking utensils and electric kettle
  • Vacuum cleaner which comes in handy for your vacuum storage bags

 

Room for improvement:

  • None for now.

Some notes:

  • We are a family of four and had to choose bigger rooms to fit us all. Rooms for two would be slightly cheaper.
  • I won’t talk about their television and pay TV channels (named SKY TV). Travel to watch TV? Nope, they weren’t our focus.
  • The front desk and housekeeping services, like many other shops, restaurants and tourist attractions, are not available round-the-clock. Their working hours are stated clearly at the respective reception. Remember to grab your extra boxes of tissues or toilet rolls early.
  • If you need help in any town, find an i-site (NZ’s visitor information centre)
