The selection of testimonials below were sent into the AA Supreme Host of the Year Awards which Avon City Motel has been a finalist in for three years.


Our unit was spotless on arrival and continued to be serviced beautifully during our stay. Complete with complementary chocolates and paper. As we were on a late flight arriving into Christchurch at midnight, Val waited up to greet us and make sure we were comfortable. Service! We will be back!

Clean, comfortable. Home away from home. Helpful staff too! Will sure come again - no hesitation! 10/10 thank you.

Premises immaculate, grounds marvellous. Val and David were superb in attitude, considerate of comfort and our circumstances which was so reassuring and welcome. Bed very comfortable, surprising extras with heating already on, on a bitterly cold day, lollies appreciated, and surprise visit by Val of home baked supper! Very competitive charges. Should be winners of AA Supreme Host - not runners up!!!
    Mr and Mrs D. Hosking, Timaru
 
It was like having my Dad around - David picked us up from the airport and made us feel right at home, chatting with Kev about motorbikes and giving us a lift to town instead of letting us catch a bus! Even spotted the fact that the licence on our hire car was going to run out - shame we can't take him with us! Thank you

Val was a lovely, friendly, helpful hostess (we thought she must have been a Coaster or a Southlander!) She was able to supply us with all the information we needed for a great stay in Christchurch. Nothing was a trouble. Beautiful gardens created a restful ambience. High standard of service. Daily chocolates a lovely touch.

A most comfortable couple of night's accommodation. Val and David went the extra mile to help us with whatever we needed. We felt very welcome and would definitely stay again and recommend to others.

The owner was a bloody legend!! We were caught walking back to the motel in a down pour and he saw us and gave us a lift. What a dude! Also made sure we had arrangements for the airport and wake up call by phone set up. Great hospitality, definately be back.
     Andy and Alex, Oamaru

This is definately the cleanest motel I have stayed in. I was even happy to put my clothing on the floor when re-packing my case. I have never done that in a motel before! The hosts were extremely friendly and made me feel important. The extra touches were the sweets for my grandson, chocolates daily, clean fresh towels daily, quiet, warmth and central to what I needed.
      Di, Oamaru

We are senior citizens who arrived at the above address tired after journeying from Alexandra. The very friendly greeting we received was really appreciated. We were made to feel 'at home' in our unit, which was 'spot on' for comfort, warmth and cleanliness. The little treats provided were a bonus. Our second visit and would return any time. The gardens was outstandings.
     R and E Clark, Alexandra

We have stayed with Dave and Val many times over the years and have always had excellent service. The rooms are always clean  and well serviced and the grounds immaculate making it an easy place to feel welcome.

Motel very clean. Towels changed everyday. Beautifully presented gardens and outside very neat and tidy. Both Dave and Val Keir helpful at all times of need. We are an old couple in our seventies and enjoy peace and quiet.

Our hosts were warm and friendly. Our unit was clean, well equipped and just like a home away from home. I would not hesitate to recommend this superb place and setting to anyone. We are so looking forward to coming back and greeting these very amicable owners. We will be back. Very memorable.
     Judy and Tim, Australia

After travelling in the South Island for 17 days and staying in 14 different motels and holiday parks we found the hosts of Avon City Motel the friendliest and most hospitable.
     Sue, Australia

Staying at this motel was awesome. The service was really perfect. We liked the very beautiful garden. The people were friendly, the room was clean and every day a new towels and a clean bathroom. When we visit New Zealand again, we are sure we want to stay at this motel again.
     Yoke, The Netherlands

Two friends and myself travelled from Ireland and drove from Auckland to Christchurch and stayed in 20 motels during our stay in New Zealand. We found our stay at Avon City Motel to be the best for comfort, hygiene and hospitality. A memorable experience.
     Pat, Ireland

Arriving at Christchurch, after a long arduous journey by car from Picton (via Kaikoura), Mr Dave's kind hospitality and enthusiasm were a welcome boost to my flagging spirit and my aching muscles were instantaneously soothed by the clean rooms, hot showers and a comfortable bed. Assistance on what to do at and around Christchurch. Highly informative and appreciated too!
     David, Malaysia

This was the only motel we visited during our two month stay in New Zealand that kept ther promises as mentioned on Internet. The unit was clean, furniture was in harmony with everything. In short, perfect.
