The motel was modern and well serviced. The front units are subject to road noise. There are no drawers in the unit for storage for a longer stay. Comfortable. Kitchen has microwave only. Good guest laundry.

My partner and I stayed here after getting a late night flight in at around midnight (caught a taxi, only $16-they have free transfers from 8-6 I think which we made use of in the morning). Very clean and friendly managers looking after the place while the main owners were away. Would recommend.

Managers very helpful. Rooms are large and immaculate. Perfect stay for an early flight from Christchurch airport. Shuttle service within certain hours otherwise $17 taxi fare. Also close to Antarctic Centre. Limited food options within walking distance.

I spent 5 nights here and I don't have any complaints at all. It was comfortable and clean and staff were great. Had a good nights sleep as it was really quiet and had no road noise. No complaints at all, looking forward to my next stay in August!

Airport Palms had all we wanted for a one night stopover in Christchurch. Spotlessly clean, we used the free shuttle both ways to the airport and were allowed into our room early afternoon. There's a good bus service into the city with a stop near by. It took 20 minutes to walk to the supermarket at Avonhead, this is also... More

I stayed here twice for 4 nights due to work. Some really good things: it is spotlessly clean with modern rooms; located minutes from the airport yet never heard a single plane while I stayed here; friendly staff and they'll drop you at the airport for free if you don't have a car! Negative things: there is absolutely nothing to... More

My family of 4 stayed overnight at the end of our 2 week NZ holiday. We had already spent a few nights in Christchurch city center at the start of our holiday so we just needed somewhere close to the airport as we were passing through for one night on our way back home. Friendly, helpful staff, lovely clean room,... More

My partner and I stayed here twice, at the beginning and the end of a 2 week camper road trip. The first night we stayed in a king studio with a spa and it was excellent. Massive spa and great heating in the room (it was winter). We also stayed in a king studio with just the shower at the... More

The Manager was smiling and happy when we turned up late. The first thing I noticed was the nice smell of the unit when we walked in. Very modern contemporary décor. We had a 2 bedroom unit for ourselves and our 2 boys. The beds were great and the shower had really good pressure. Very clean and a pleasure to... More
