I stayed at the Airport Palms when I was deployed to Christchurch on SOFIA, the flying observatory. I work at night and I needed a place which was quiet during the day so I could sleep, yet with easy access to the airport. Even though my room was right on Roydvale, with traffic noise during rush hour, the double-pane glass... More

We booked a 3 bedroom apartment for 6 persons (3 adults and 3 children). It suited us perfectly after a long drive from Queenstown. Pat and Bill were at reception and check in was very efficient and they had some good recommendations for dinners as well. The apartment was clean with all the amenities we needed and plenty of space.... More

Needed an overnighter before an early flight and wanted something close to the airport. We found this little gem - clean, comfortable and good value - we had the two bedroom apartment 1xq, 2x s, with a spa! Delightful - well done staff!

The Airport Palms is just 5 minutes away from the airport and it offers a complimentary airport shuttle service. The rooms were clean and comfortable with free wi-fi. My room was right next to the main road but the traffic noise was reasonably well insulated. The heating was good too which was appreciated in the middle of winter.

This is our 3rd time that we have stayed here at the Airport Palms. It is usually for one night before or after a holiday. This time we had the 3 bedroom apartment as we were with friends. We arrive about 1am and found our apartment without any fuss. It was lovely and warm as the heater had been left... More

Convenient location, kind hosts, comfortable & well equipped rooms - perfect place to get straight before starting a road trip. Lovely lady collected us from airport within 5mins of us calling and dropped us to the camper hire centre in the morning.

I had a great night's stay at an Airport Palms Motel studio room. The facilities were great, it was clean & modern. The shower was particularly nice. Limited Sky TV but adequate to get you through the evening. I enjoyed it so much it was my motel of choice when I tried to book another few nights for the next... More

We were promptly picked up at the airport when we arrived, and soon discovered a very friendly and welcoming team at the Airport Palms. The room was clean, warm, and well appointed. It is set in a reasonably quiet area, and we would happily stay again on our next visit to Christcherch.

We are a family of four with two young children who flew into Christchurch on midnight. We found access to the after hours key access easy, and location of our room very straightforward.
