It is what it says a airport motel cheap and close to the airport. Large room with nice large shower. Coffee/tea and even packets of biscuits in the room. Very clean and the bed was very comfortable. Would recommend if you need to get up early for a flight. We found a pub where you can eat about 2 miles... More

We stayed here one night on our end of our vacation. It's clean, modern and very close to the airport. Limited wifi (a voucher for 30 mins) but overall no complaints. Grocery store a short drive away.

We stayed at this place because it was so close to the airport and our flight was very early in the morning . Our room was like an apartment with a very spacious bedroom area with desk and tv , kitchen area was very well equipped . Bathroom was also great and the whole place was immaculate . Really great...

Easy check-in. Lovely quiet room on 2nd floor. Spacious, modern, very clean. Bedding was very comfortable. We had dinner across the road at a motel which was nice and handy as recommended by the managers. Glad we were able to use their shuttle service to get to the airport the next morning. Would definitely recommend.

Just spent one night before catching an early flight out of CHC. Very convenient location for the airport, but not for touring the city. Free use of laundry facilities. Free, but capped wifi using dumb paper coupons (seriously, in this modern world??). Room was functional and clean. I had an upstairs unit which made hauling luggage up and down stairs... More

We arrived after a very long trip from California. The room was very comfortable, clean and bright. Reception was easy and he suggested an easy place to get food for the morning. Additionally, we loved our first night dinner at Monteiths -- a local brew pub. Easy location from airport and a quick stop into Christchurch.

We stayed here twice as the proximity to the airport is very close & easy to find, once on arrival to Christchurch & again the night before we left to come home. The communication from the Managers by email was excellent as we arrived in very late & the key was there as promised in the box. Both the rooms... More

Glad to hear your second night was made more comfortable with the addition of a pedestal fan in your unit. Christchurch has been experiencing particularly warm days this summer and we are ensuring all units are provided with or have access to fans. Thank you for your recommendation. More

We stayed at the Airport Palms Motel twice, coming from and going to the airport. The first room we had was on the upper level and not so convenient, but the second one was excellent in every way, quite spacious, good facilities, including microwave, table and chairs, easy chair and comfortable beds. There were also disabled facilities in the bathroom.... More

Nice clean room. We arrived well after hours and they room and key were set up for us just as we were told. Next morning the managers went out of their way to assist me and get me headed in the right direction.

Stayed just the one night prior to flying out. Motel is very convenient to airport . But as shuttle does not run before 8 am on weekends we had to use a taxi. The 5 minute ride cost $20. Very expensive we think for such a short journey. The rooms are clean and fresh and well equiped. The hosts are... More
