"Nothing bad to say!" p_m_worcester - Worcester, UK

Booked the Salerno Motel for 3 nights in September and can't say a bad word about our stay. Great modern apartment with excellent facilities including a jacuzzi bath. The staff were very friendly - a great start to our tour of New Zealand!

"10/10" AlandKimmy - Christchurch, NZ

I had the privilege of staying here and Brendan and Pauline wow. This place is sensational and the service i received while i stayed exceeded all my expectations. The rooms were Cleaned to a high standard and if i required anything then it was sorted. There was never a issue with anything and the hosts went above and beyond to suit my needs. I would like to extend my thanks to all the staff and the hosts for making my stay a great one. This is one stay that i will never forget.

"A pleasure" Jock H - Dunedin NZ

A real pleasure. Kind thoughtful owners - always ready to help. Room very clean and everything working well. Room unbelievably quiet. Bed divine. Thanks very much and well done.

"Very good motel" MrHulotetlesKiwi - Christchurch

The recent snow in Christchurch stranded us there for 2 days. So we decided to stay at the Salerno. The rooms were very well appointed, clean and modern. The owners are very friendly and happy to help. This is the probably the best motel we have stayed in in New Zealand.
The icing on the cake was shoveling the snow in the morning with the owner, priceless!!! I would recommend this motel without hesitation.

"Beautiful motel" EliseH9 - Sydney, Australia

My Partner and I stayed here for the weekend and found it to be perfect! The rooms are very well looked after, the bed was comfy and everything you needed was available. The owners are lovely and are available to answer any questions you may have about the local area. I would recommend this motel to everyone.

"Exceptional accommodation" - Angelntinks, Cambridgeshire

We found the Salerno motel apartment to be wonderfully clean, classic accommodation with a huge jacuzzi bath. The owners were so accommodating and looked after us really well, bringing a fan immediately to the room when it was hot, mints on the pillows, all those little things that make your stay more comfortable. Glad to see they are still standing following the earthquake, would definitely recommend staying here.

"Perfect place to stay" - jan255114, Tauranga

Brendan and Pauline are the friendliest couple you could get, when you are staying away from home. Nothing is a problem, and always have time for a chat. We stay their every cup week (which is show week in Christchurch) and love our stay. The motel is sparkling clean, and a lovely big bed. We always walk downtown to the Restaurants, and very handy to the casino, which is great. We would not stay anywhere else. We are thinking of Christchurch at the moment, but know Brendan and Pauline, and the Motel are all running smoothly.

"The most comfortable bed I've slept in!" - KarlOz30, Sydney

We stayed in Christchurch for 3 nights. The room was more of a 5 star apartment. A huge king size bed (probably the most comfortable bed I've slept in!). A big spa bath. Fully (and I mean fully!) equipped kitchen with stainless steel appliances, washer/dryer. A wall mounted LCD TV was great too. I have to mention the carpet which must have been 3 inches thick. If the bed wasn't so comfy I'd have probably slept on the floor.

"The room was immaculate" - MikeMelbourne, Melbourne

We came for a night with no expectations. The friendly owners put us into the honeymoon suite with a smile... We have stayed at a few motels in our current trip to Christchurch but this was the best. The room was immaculate - we thought we were the first to stay - but we learned later that it had been open for the last 12 months!

"Like a second home for me" - SkuaDuck, McMurdo Antarctica

The Salerno is like a second home for me. The place is maintained beautifully, and the hosts, Pauline and Brendan, are very personable and friendly and they always make me want to go back and stay there again. People like them are a big part of why I love Christchurch, New Zealand so much.

"Economical cost, excellent quality" - Blou56, Braintree United Kingdom

The Salerno Motel has to be the best place we have ever stayed at. It had just opened (we stayed there in April), and all the fixtures, fittings and furnishings were top quality. There was a choice of room combinations - we chose one with a spa bath, and a combined room/kitchenette. Because the cost was so economical (in relation to the excellent quality), I was able to afford to pay for my brother and his wife to stay there at the same time.

"Didn't hear a peep" - Trinity007, Whangarei New Zealand

This was an absolutely gorgeous motel. We stayed for 2 nights in a 2 bedroom Apartment that had two bathrooms. The Motel has LCD TVs in both bedrooms and lounge. Full kitchen facilities and a washer/dryer within the apartment. Both rooms had king sized beds and were very, very comfortable. This was very close to the central city area and very easy to find. Given the location to the road, we expected some traffic noise but did not hear a peep once the door was shut.

"Very handy, you can't get lost" - Mentat, Kent England

The Hotel is very new so everything is in excellent condition. Location: 5 minutes walk into Christchurch Cathedral Square, very handy and you can't get lost. Plenty of eating places on the way and souvenir shops too.

"Expert proprieters Pauline and Brendan" - texasred51, Austin USA

I was traveling with my cousins, who are free spirited folk, so we never booked ahead. We just lucked out when we found the Salerno through the Info Office in Christchurch. It has incredible rooms and the affable and expert proprietors, Pauline and Brendan, made us feel right at home.

"Unmatched quality" - JetRaven, New Zealand

This place is excellent. Our room was super, very modern, clean and comfy with a great bed - we did not want to get up in the morning. The location is very good too, only a short walk to the main roads of the central Christchurch. I would definitely stay here again, you get value for money and unmatched quality.

"Jumped for joy" - DreamTeam27, Colchester Great Britain

After driving around NZ in a camper van for 3 weeks before arriving in Christchurch, we almost jumped for joy when we saw how nice this motel was.It was impeccably clean, modern and the bathroom with the jacuzzi bath was a lovely extra. The room was stylishly decorated with a large flat screen TV. The bed was extremely comfortable.The owners were very friendly, and were particularly accommodating when we asked for a late checkout to coincide with our flight.Whilst the motel is on a main road, we heard no noise, and the hotel is in a perfect position to walk into the centre of the city.

"Would definitely stay there again" - lindsle1, Hawaii USA

The Salerno was an attractive very comfortable place to stay. The apartment had everything including a washer/dryer. We stayed in a two bedroom two bath apartment and loved the warm bathrooms and great amenities. The owner was very helpful and gave us a great restaurant recommendation when we found that the ones in our guide book had closed! Would definitely stay there again.
