Everything is thought about in these motels. Great shower, comfy bed, plenty of real milk(not the long life pottles), tea, plunger coffee etc. Easy to get to and from airport, and dairy/takeaways 5 mins walk away. Would definitely stay again.

Bill and Pat were so accommodating making my stay stress free. The bed was ok, little bouncy for me and I usually take my own contoured pillow as I have a bad neck but I didn't this time- so my sleep wasn't great. The room was spacious, modern and well thought out with plugs and mirrors in the right places!... More

Large and spotlessly clean modern room however one of the reasons we booked this Motel was the complimentary Airport transfers but there only operate during limited hours. We had a 6am International departure but transfers didn't start til 8am on Sunday so by the time we added another $16 to our room rate ($165) it was quite expensive for an... More

Thank you for placing this review and that you were happy with the standard of your room. We apologise for the limited hours of the shuttle service but we do advertise this fact on our website and because we are a husband and wife team managing this motel we are unable to provide this service on a 24 hour basis....

We arrived late at night. No phones, no idea where our next destination was and Bill dropped us off next morning with a smile. That was very welcome and made got our stay off to a good start that continued for the whole month we were in NZ.

My wife and I stayed here for 2 nights as part of 25-day tour of NZ. We were due to fly out of Christchurch, so staying here was a good choice. Bill and Pat, the managers were very helpful and Bill offers an airport shuttle service during sensible hours. The room was spotlessly clean and well laid-out, although compact compared... More

Others are right in their reviews. Great host picked us uo in a few minutes of landing. Room was a studio reasonable in regard to space. Big tv. Clean and well appointed. We were road front a little noise of cars not ideal.. so ask for a room away from the road.

Stayed here for one night. Convenient airport shuttle, room was well equipped with kettle, sink, small dining table, large bathroom and comfortable beds. Walking distance to delicious asian food. Recommend this place if you need to be near the airport.

Ours was just a short stop-over before catching a plane, but very helpful and friendly staff and a good standard of accommodation, with all the usual extras you would expect. Not much in immediate area, but nice park to walk around locally.

Our stay was for one night, four adults. We stayed in a two bedroom unit. The unit was clean and comfortable. The lady at reception directed us to the local shopping mall where we ate dinner at the Monteiffs Bar. Lovely meal. We also took her recommendation for breakfast at the cafe across the road. Good coffee, nice food. Convenient... More
