Things to see & do:
A great place to start is the Christchurch Tourism website The site contains alot of useful information on activities, things to see, do and learn about. There's also a 'deals' page.
We're a family who are into cycling - road, mountain, track .. anything for two wheels! Christchurch is soooo cycle friendly for any age or ability. For cycling info including tracks etc, a good place to start is the Christchurch City Council Recreational Cycling page. You can also check out Christchurch Adventure Park - walking trails, epic zip-lining and the wonderful scenic chairlift all the way to the top :-)
Anytime Fitness Riccarton: We have a gym membership available for our guests to use! This is subject to availabiity and our terms and conditions of use.
Riccarton Eateries: all recommended based on our experience (noting that we haven't tried everywhere in Riccarton ... yet!)
Bensons - authentic Chinese food for in restaurant dining (bookings recommended as this place can get really busy) or takeaway.
Fox & Ferret - hearty pub grub and friendly service combined at this english themed pub
Rogues - a gem on Rotherham St serving morning til late (bookings recommended for weekends). Wood-fired pizzas!
Corianders (Bush Inn) - authentic Indian food for in restaurant dining, takeaway (discount on collection orders) or delivery.
Park Ranger - amazing coffee and food. Open until mid-afternoon - very popular in the mornings and worth waiting for!
Velvet Burger - yep, good burgers. All tastes catered for and are licensed. Look out for them on Facebook for their 'two for one' tuesdays code (online orders only)
Alligator Pizza - one of a kind pizza doorway shop just a one minute walk away. Often sells out early so best to place an order earlier in the day - when it's gone, it's gone
Dux Dine - a beautiful villa turned into a plant-based/seafood restaurant. Really lovely food and a nice spot for morning tea in their conservatory or garden.
Khmer Satay Noodle House Riccarton - just a one minute walk from the motel for an unfussy and deliciously authentic Cambodian/Thai meal or snack.
