La Rive Akaroa Motel is the first motel you see as you drive down the hill and arrive in Akaroa. It is well known for the distinctive turret at the end of the building and the French flag that is always flying from the flag pole.
We have a long established reputation for affordable, clean and comfortable accommodation. We make ourselves available to both local and overseas visitors and can cater for travelling family groups.
Our objective is to make your stay in Akaroa as pleasant and relaxing as possible, and being a smaller motel we have time to provide personal service and guest information on what to see and do in Akaroa.
2 studio and 6 x 2-bedroom units offer self-contained space with separate lounge and kitchen. Akaroa's only motel with French doors opening onto a private lawn and fenced garden.
Akaroa is fast becoming known as a tourist destination, about 84 kilometres or one hour and twenty minutes by road from Christchurch on Banks Peninsula.
