Guest Reviews

I was panicking about finding somewhere to stay as well as look after our car for 3 weeks while we were away on holiday. While giving us a lovely little motel unit with a great bed, they also looked after our car free while we were away, arranged for a shuttle to take us to the airport, and picked us up when we arrived back. And although it was early morning, they had the motel unit already for us to use and catch up on some well needed sleep. This is going above and beyond any other service and we were very greatfull for it. Will be back.


We have stayed at 219 on Johns multiple times now and always have a great experience. We really appreciate your help when arriving late and leaving early – so efficient and when we do see or talk to your staff they’re very friendly. Thanks again!

We’ve now become somewhat regular visitors to this great motel handy to Chch airport. Friendly owners, really clean rooms, very family friendly – this place has it all, and consistently so. Also very fair tariffs representing good value for money. We look forward to our next stay!

Great place to stay had great weather handy to everything , we will be back , thankyou

We have camped here several times now and find the management and staff courteous, friendly and very helpful. The grounds are always kept neat and tidy. Good shopping nearby.Could recommend this place to any traveler and it was a pleasure to stay here


We stayed here for three separate nights during our stay, on arriving, before departing and one other as its a perfect location for this. Site is quite small and has good facilities (laundry excellent) – showers work well but not always as clean as they could be (maybe just unfortunate as it was early eve and they are cleaned in the morning)

Some of the previous reviews mention how there are lots of permanent residents and this is true, however it is true for nearly every park we stayed in while in NZ. Not normally a big issue although the man next to us was doing some sawing on one day (only for ten/fifteen mins).

Staff are polite and helpful and helped me out a few times, letting me use the phone when i had a problem with our camper and also held a package that was posted to me so all in all i could not fault this site at all and would definitely recommend for new arrivals and departures.

The team st 219 on Johns have some of the best customer service I have ever recieved, we booked only the night before and for one night as this motel is close to the airport. The motel also offers free vehicle storage for the duration of your travel. The unit we had was excellent value for money had a comfy bed and cleanliness was of the highest standard all facilities we encountered were in good condition and clean and the owners extremely helpful, going above and beyond the call of duty. We left our car in a carpark and the moved it to a secure area for us as we departed at 4am, They were happy for us to pick it up after reception had closed.


Stayed in a very comfortable and clean chalet. Very quiet, no noise from other travellers. Great information booklet on the services at the motel as well as local information, where to get food, shopping etc… Warm and friendly staff. prompt and easy booking service.

219 on Johns is located on the northern outskirts of Christchurch. It is the cheapest camping option in Christchurch. The showers and toilets are cleaned daily. The facilities are a bit older but were well maintained when I stayed here end of April and since most sites on the campground where occupied during my stay I don’t think it gets too crowded here in high season. The kitchen is a bit to small though and there could be a few more tables and chairs.

Close to the airport. Really clean. Spacious rooms, friendly staff always willing to help. In the rooms you have everything you might need. Great value for the price you pay. Will stay again while visitng CHC.


Only $100 for a chalet for the night, room was clean, quiet and comfortable. Was recommended by a family member. They even took me to the airport in my own car and looked after my car (no charge) until i got back from my holiday. There just isn’t service around like this very often these days. Would stay again and recommend to others!


Spent our final night of 21 day holiday here. We were in a motorhome. The host was very friendly and made us feel welcome. The site was clean, well laid out with good facilities. Close to the airport but with the feeling of staying on a family site. Very popular. Highly recommended.


This is by far the best campsite in Christchurch. Facilities are clean and unlimited hot showers. The sites are big enough for 3 vans and even have a picnic table. The staff is incredibly helpful with any requests or inquiries. Price drops when you are staying longer than a week. I will visit again!

Very clean and tidy.Stayed in both the units and in the Caravan. Very family friendly. Very helpful and polite staff who do a great job of looking after the grounds and facilitates.We had the best time staying there last month looking forward to go back next year.
