Welcome to The Diplomat Motel, Merivale, Christchurch

A warm welcome awaits you at the Diplomat Motel where your hosts Brian and Bridget look forward to making your stay in our single storey Christchurch Motel the best it can possibly be. We are a well established Christchurch Motel located on Papanui Road in the heart of Merivale offering large,  spacious, comfortable, ground floor studio units and 2 bedroom family accommodation in a beautiful garden setting. We specialise in catering for hospital guests, corporate travellers and those looking for a wonderful holiday base in Christchurch.

Our fantastic location puts us 1.5km from Christchurch city centre and a 5 minute walk to Hagley Park. We are located on a main arterial bus route (including the blue line bus to the airport at the gate). We are the closest motel to Merivale Mall and its award winning cafes and restaurants, St Georges Hospital, Nurse Maude, Hiatt and Milford Chambers, the Laser Vision Eye Clinic, and Elizabeth House.

Spend a wonderful afternoon relaxing in the spa, take a dip in our heat pump heated swimming pool, a leisurely walk around Hagley Park before heading back for a BBQ in your own courtyard area. Free wireless internet is also available to all guests.
