What to See and Do

Main Image

The Lorenzo Motor Lodge is the perfect place to stay if you're sightseeing.

There are some wonderful day tours to see the sites of the city. We can help you book these at reception. The day trips to Akaroa (originally settled by the French) takes around 75 minutes. Alternatively Hanmer Springs (with great walks and hot spring pools) will take you about 1 hour 40 minutes. These two picturesque towns are easily accessible from Christchurch. You can self drive or we can arrange a shuttle bus for you.

The very highly rated World Buskers festival is on again this January 2015 in Christchurch. Most acts are free with just a donation at the conclusion of the show. Make Lorenzo your base for enjoying this wonderful entertainment.

If you are travelling South from Christchurch to wonderful Fiordland, you can check out your trips with Real Journeys, New Zealand's leading scenic tour operator in the far south of New Zealand.

When you require a rental car for travel beyond and around Christchurch, many of our guests have used the services of USave Rentals. They will pick you up from Lorenzo Motor Lodge if required, when it is time to collect your vehicle. Our guests have found their service to be very reliable. You can book your rental vehicle now from the link to the left on this page.
