We stayed here the last two nights of our New Zealand vacation as it's quite close to the airport and made it easy for our pre-dawn flight. The facility was excellent - very clean, every need was anticipated, and the hostess was very helpful in providing directions and recommendations. Also seemed very quiet at night, and we were pleasantly surprised... More

We have had the pleasure of staying at the Airport Palms Motel in Christchurch on several occasions, each time we have had a very friendly welcome and on the occasion that we arrived late in the evening we were delighted to find our room was warm as the heater and the lights had been turned on ready for our arrivial....

Airport Palms has an excellent standard of rooms. They are all very clean and comfortable. The location makes it easily accessible to the Airport and the Sir William Pickering Business Park - just a short taxi to the terminal or stroll to the office. The staff are very friendly and nothing is ever a problem!

The Airport Palms provided an adequate motel that met all of our needs for our first night in New Zealand: quiet and clean. The staff at the front desk was helpful for directions and suggestions . Since our room was ready, we were able to get into it early - this is greatly appreciated!

Fantastic hosts who couldn't have been more helpful when one of our bags had been left in Sydney, they collected it the next morning from the airport before taking us pick up our camper van. Room was excellent, spotlessly clean and well appointed bathroom. Good quality breakfast. Many thanks

Even if it was just one night, your Motel is very accommodating. Our room was great, very clean & tidy and very modern. It's such a handy location, close to Jellie Park, McDonalds, and supermarket! If ever getting an early flight, would totally use again.

Recently stayed at this motel, awesome motel we had one night, as we were picking up our motor home the next morning in Christchurch, to start our trip, we were made so welcome when we arrived and so very clean and really comfy rooms. We had a lovely meal only walking distance from the motel. I Highly recommend this place... More

We are independent travelers who never stay in "motels". With a 6am flight the next morning after three rigorous weeks in NewZealand, we had no choice but to motel it near the airport. The Airport Palms was a great choice. Clean, comfortable and incredibly convenient. Bill took the time to help us make best use of the afternoon we had... More

We booked this motel due to it's location so we could have a quick rest after our late arrival. Since we're only arriving at approx. 01:00 we were told that the key is inside the key box, got a code to take it out. As we arrived I opened the box - and it was empty. So what to do?... More

We used this hotel before we took an early morning flight to Auckland. We arrived earlier than we should have but reception were brilliant and checked us in anyway. The hotel room was very clean & comfortable. We were only a mile from the airport but it was very quiet. Good internet access and all facilities you would expect.
