Clean, and comfortable. There is a wall mounted large screen tv, a small kitchenette (no stove), and a decent sized bathroom. All furnishings are modern. WIFI is limited to 2, 30 minute periods. Two gripes---the room's location (on the noisy street side) and there was no AC. We were in room 22 so I would suggest staying on the back... More

We chose to stay here at both the beginning and end of our holiday because of the convenient airport location. The room while quite basic, had everything we needed for our overnight stay. We found it very clean, friendly and within walking distance of groceries and restaurants.The staff were very accommodating and even had an item I'd left behind when... More

The beds were very poor and overly soft . The room was very basic and like an American motel The management was efficient and helpful. The only advantage was that the motel was near the airport. I don't think the motel deserves the top reviews it received

We stayed here on our last night in NZ, so very handy to airport for our early morning flight. Motel room was very modern and clean, and hosts were very friendly. We would recommend to our family and friends.

I stayed here for one night. The Motel has a good and clean over-all apperance, rooms are modern, new and clean. Quiet and comfortable sleep. Its very close to the airport/rental car drop off, so for a night before your flight this motel is a perfect choice! The owner was friendly and very helpful.

We stayed here the first night of our 12 day excursion through the South Island of New Zealand. We had never been to New Zealand, or overseas for that matter, and didn't really know what to expect. The shuttle service to the airport was excellent and a life saver. The driver was so friendly and filled us in on the... More

Thank you for placing your review following your stay with us. we are pleased you enjoyed the free Shuttle service and the welcome cookies on arrival. Our information booklet does advertise a restaurant situated almost directly across the street from our Motel and there is a well recommended fast food takeaway shop just 5 minutes walk away. However if groceries... More

Excellent last stop of our December New Zealand Tour. We had started and ended a 10 day NZ tour in Christchurch. We were greeted warmly and treated more like a BnB. Arranged a taxi for airport departure. Highly recommend the Airport Palms.

This is a spotlessly clean hotel just up the road from the airport about 10 minutes drive away. We rang the freephone number and were picked up immediatley by the shuttle bus and although we were about 3 hours early they were able to get our room ready after a short wait so we could have a shower after our...
