My flights to Australia out of Christchurch always seem to leave REAAAAL early in the morning and get in equally late. Living two hours from Christchurch means it is heaps easier to spend the night. Airport Birches is the PERFECT place if you need that place to stay before your fly. Cheap. Clean. Shuttle to the airport. You can leave... More

Stayed here for the fifth time, first time under the new management and definitely the last time. Whilst the place is still clean it isn't as good as it used to be, no welcoming hosts, no airport shuttle service for late arrivals. No breakfast tray left in your room and no offer of getting a breakfast in the morning. The... More

I always stay here on my business trips to Christchurch. The motel is always clean and is very convenient being close to the airport. The owners Henk and Brenda are extremely friendly and helpful. They offer a shuttle service to and from the airport and the hotel is walking distance to the Avonhead tavern and shopping center. I will continue... More

Booked a one-bedroom unit; in reality the "bedroom" is a shoe-box with a bi-fold door, only big enough for a single bed, a small wardrobe and nothing else. Perhaps would be passable if the wardrobe was removed and a bedside table installed instead. Unit is modern and clean but expensive for what you get.

Found this motel to be very clean, the staff were friendly and helpful. It was close to the airport and up the road is the Bush Inn shopping Mall and supermarkets. They had a deal with a taxi company so got this ride to the airport cheaper. Plus they stored my car there for the week. Will definitely stay there... More

A friend and I were in Christchurch to attend a convention so I booked a one bedroom unit so we could each have our own room.I expected a bed in the main lounge/kitchen space and an extra bedroom with another bed in it. However our unit had a queen sized bed in the main room but the so called extra... More

We stayed in the spa bath unit for one night, the owner picked us up from the airport with in 10 minutes of us calling him which was really good service. The room was small and a bit tight with nowhere to put our luggage but on the floor. The room was clean and had everything that you need for... More

The motel is easy to find, clean, and accessible to the airport and most of town without too much trouble. Large bathroom in our unit, along with basic kitchenette facilities. The staff was cordial, but not overly friendly. Parking was empty when we arrived (5:30PM) but was full by the time we returned from dinner (7:30P). A perfectly reasonable place... More
