Kaiapoi's Number One Motel!
As Kaiapoi’s only motel, we look forward to making your stay as comfortable as possible.
We are on the main street coming into Kaiapoi from the south and close to all local amenities as well as being close to Christchurch. This means you can enjoy the peace and quiet of Kaiapoi, but know you’re not far from the many attractions throughout Christchurch and the Canterbury region.
Just 20 minutes north from central Christchurch and 15 minutes from the Christchurch International Airport.
We have six modern, self contained quality studio units and one 2 bedroom holiday home. Our units are north facing for all day sun.
The Kaiapoi River Queen was established in Kaiapoi 2019.
River Queen started her life in Marlborough on the Taylor river close to the township of Blenheim where it operated for approximately a decade.
She is a flat bottomed 2 story boat constructed of wood and fibreglass that is powered by 2 carefully hidden outboard motors.
It has been fully refurbished since its arrival in Kaiapoi in October 2018 with paint, upholstery, carpets, new decks, new 115 Honda outboard motors and is ready to serve the Kaiapoi and wider areas.
Sailing times and information can be seen at Kaiapoi River Queen Facebook page.
