Needed a last minute room in Christchurch near the airport, and asked a taxi to drop me off on the street closest to the airport with inexpensive motels. After checking a few nearby, I was lucky to find a single room available at Aarburg. For single occupancy the rate was $30-40 less than neighboring motels, but what really stayed with... More

We had a family type unit with two rooms,kitchen,shower etc. Kitchen facilities were available for self catering although... More

Same as other review, the heating in the rooms were not good enough, our electric blanket was not functioning. The size of the rooms were fine, but it was a little bit too compact at the toilet. The motel is a bit dated but still worth for money.

Heating not good enough for NZ winters. No heater in the bathroom. Rooms very dated. Blown light bulbs not replaced. General below standard for the price. Staff not particularly helpful.
