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

We recently stayed here at the beginning of our trip around south island. Our plane arrived around Midnight and it was 1am when we arrived at the hotel. We were warmly greeted as we arrived, shown to our room and even got some great tips for our trip. The room was nice and cosy. The bed was extremely comfortable after... More

There are other motels closer but this one is a good one. There is a free shuttle service to and from the airport even if you arrive very late like we did. The rooms are fine, not overly big, but fine. The beds are great and we all slept well. We stayed in a two bedroom unit with a double... More

Our plane got cancelled and we were looking for a place close to the airport where to sleep after flying nearly for two days in a row from Spain. We were picked up quickly (10 minutes after we called) and the staff were very nice, helpful and efficient. The room was nice, clean, quiet and we had a very good... More

Lovely Motel and convenient to the Airport. Friendly staff. Clean and comfortable. Stayed 2 nights in May and then another 2 nights in June when we returned from our trip to the UK. Car minding at $2 per night for the 33 days we were away was great value compared with Christchurch Airport charges for parking, plus we were taken... More

Booked our last night in NZ at the Airport Birches. Its very convenient to the airport, and perfect for a last night stop over, or a stepping stone when beginning a trip. Units were a little dated but had everything needed to make the stay comfortable. Management/staff were friendly and very helpful. Would certainly stay there again if in Christchurch.

Dear Michael N Thank you for your review, in one of the photographs you uploaded there is a large black paint smear on one of our units, this was taken during the time when the motel's exterior was being painted. Painting has now been completed and the motel is looking very nice. Kind regards Airport Birches Motel Management More
