    "A lovely place to stay"

    Arrived on a wet cold day but received a very warm welcome and given an upgrade. The room on the top level was very clean and spacious with stunning views over the harbour to the distant snow capped hills beyond. The motel is well located with all facilities within easy walking distance. The daily room service was impeccable. Despite the cold temperatures outside the room was warm and cosy at all times. Good value.

    Thank you for your lovely comments. We do try and look after people the way we would like to be treated. It is always nice to walk into a warm room on a cold day.

    "positive vibes from the Criterion"

    Modern, clean, spacious and great ablution area. Everything we look in a motel for was there and at a good price. No more needs to be said except the young receptionist was so relaxed she was in bare feet. Even the dog looked very relaxed - perfect.

    "Great place to stay"

    The unit was spacious and clean; the beds were comfortable and the view from the balcony was wonderful. The kitchenette had the basics (microwave, toaster, kettle, tea, coffee etc) and we took our own slow cooker and mini-oven, so were able to self cater. The staff were warm and welcoming.

    "Overall very good"

    We (3 women) were on the 2nd floor in a studio unit which had a lovely view of the bay / harbour. The fold out couch advertised on the website wasn't in the room but the owner/ host came back and changed the king size bed in to 2 separate single beds which was appreciated. The beds (3 singles) were comfortable, the heater very efficent and the room spacious and well set up (table / chairs / couches/ coffee table) for spending an evening in.

    Also had undercover parking for our car which was appreciated as it was raining when we arrived.

    Extremely clean and very spacious. Outstanding location as close to beach, restaurants and shops. Good views from our middle, mid-floor apartment. Comfortable king size bed. Good standard of facilities but would have liked an element in the kitchenette.

    "Great Motel"

    Only stayed for 1 night but this motel was excellent. It was a Studio Unit which was large and roomy. the outlook to the bay was terrific and we were on the ground floor and had a private entrance. Only over the road from an excellent restaurant. would recommend this to anyone staying in Akaroa. We did a 12 day trip to south island and stayed in many motels this one was one of the best.

    "value for money accomodation"

    The Criterian Motel is a good, clean, quiet motel, centrally located and in short walking distance of every thing. The views of the lake from our balcony were great first thing in th mornings.We enjoyed our 4 day stay in Akaroa and look forward to returning in the future.
