La Rochelle Motel Amenities
La Rochelle Motel is located in Akaroa Village, 90 minutes from Christchurch in New Zealand’s South Island. Located on the main road at the start of the village, it is close to a choice of restaurants, bars and cafés, and is just a 15-minute walk along the waterfront from Akaroa’s main shopping area.
The accommodation at La Rochelle Motel includes eight studio motel units, including a ground-floor access unit, and a two-bedroom holiday apartment, all with a private patio or balcony. The complex is set within a beautiful native garden with a stream boundary – surroundings so tranquil that you’ll wake to the sound of birdsong in the morning.
La Rochelle’s guest units are all smoke free, but there are designated outdoor spaces for smoking.
La Rochelle Motel offers the convenience of off-street parking, as well as a range of facilities including a guest laundry, free use of a high chair and/or portable cot, and the option of Continental breakfast. There is also a range of leisure equipment available for complimentary guest use: play the traditional French game of Petanque, explore Akaroa on a tandem bicycle, borrow tennis gear for a game at the local tennis courts or use the complimentary fishing gear to try your luck on Akaroa Harbour.
