Nice motel located 5mns from the airport. Nice bedding, small but clean bathroom. Kitchen kept to a minimum but after all, there are many places around for eating. Rather calm during the night. The office opens at 8 am, if you have to leave earlier, you can leave the key in a drop box.

I stayed for one night with my two children. The small bedroom with bunks was ideal for the kids without having to book a larger motel at extra cost. King bed in lounge was very comfortable. Unit very clean and plenty of parking.

We booked a motel room for one night. The location is good near the airport and you can park the car close to the room. To be honest the motel room is very small and the price is a bit on the high side based on what we have been paying over the last week around NZ, and, bearing in... More

The room was fine large enough for my wheelchair to get around with a spot for luggage. The bathroom was huge. Owner Henk had a chair waiting for me to use in the shower. Awesome not to have to travel with a shower chair! Late check out was not a problem and the service station a 150m walk away was... More

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
