    This motel is well positioned close to the train station and the owner offers a shuttle service to or from the Coastal Pacific or Tranzalpine train trips which we took advantage of.

  • 8.0.Very Good

    We booked through Expedia and paid $150.08 which was collected by Expedia and charged to our credit card at time of booking (25.4.21). We stayed one night on 22.5.21 and $127.57 was deducted from our credit card by Arena Motel on 22.5.21. We have paid twice for one night's accommodation and request a refund. Please advise when we can expect this and whether Expedia or the motel are responsible.

    The Arena Motel is very close to the inner Christchurch city and railway station if your going on the Transrail. The staff are very welcoming and made our stay enjoyable. The rooms are clean, tidy and have very comfortable beds. We loved Christchurch and will be back.

    Close to Railway Station - free shuttle.

    Stayed here cos we were catching the train the next day - free shuttle to train station was nice. Manager was very nice and helpful. Room was clean but very small (we had a 2 bedroom unit) no room in master for our suitcases even. Wouldn't want to stay here more than 1 night.

    Otel clise to Arena stadium

    Walking distance to Arena stadium. Managers are very helpful and rooms spacious. The motel is a little tired but being modernised.

    Great place to stay for families.

    Stayed in the 1 bedroom apartment and it was ample and in great condition. The hotel is located in a quiet street and well positioned to explore the city centre or to go to Akaroa without having to cross the city. Will definitively stay here again.
