My family of 2 children 10 years and below, and us, spent the last night at Airport Palms before we head back home. As we had arrived from elsewhere, we were there early and actually approached reception hoping to leave our baggage there while we explored the nearby mall. We were pleasantly surprised to be offered our room instead. That... More

Airport Palms is quite close to Christchurch Airport, which was the motivation for us to book at this motel. We arrived around midnight, and the arrangements for a key were quite simple and easy. The room was far beyond expectations, and the staff was very cheerful and helpful as we departed the next morning. We changed plans to return after... More

We stayed here our first 2 nights in New Zealand. As we arrived after midnight our key was left for us in a locked box. The rooms are spotless and perfect size.excellent hosts who were very helpful. We drove into town and there was plenty places to park . We would recommend Palms to anyone

Final night stay before flying back to UK. Very friendly welcome. Modern clean room with excellent facilities. Efficient and friendly airport shuttle (with added rugby chat!) Would certainly stay again

A lovely clean room, of a good size. Comfortable bed. We stayed as a group over a number of units and the 'family room' had good space and table and chairs, useful for meals. The hotel is pretty handy to the airport, and i believe they run an airport shuttle. I was able to check in a little early, which... More

We really enjoyed our stay. The hosts were so helpful and accommodating. They let us check in early, gave us power adapters for our electronics, let the laundry room stay open past closing time and gave us great tips on a place to eat dinner. The room was perfectly clean and very comfy. A great choice!

If you want a clean, friendly, well appointed motel near the airport, this is ideal. I wouldn't say it would be as ideal if you want something close into the city, as the rooms are just average size, and it has the usual airport issue of early morning and late evening arrivals - but that's what we need to have...

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay here, as the rooms were so comfortable and inviting. Modern décor, immaculate and clean, plenty of towels, and a few extras like snacks and plenty of milk for tea/coffees. The staff were welcoming and friendly, and the shuttle from the airport arrived to collect us in no time at all. Plenty of information on restaurants... More

I would highly recommend the Airport Palms. We stayed there at both ends of our New Zealand holiday and have to say the room was beautifully clean and well set up for an overnight or longer. The bed was very comfortable, the kitchenette had all that was needed and more. There is real milk in the fridge which makes a... More

We (2 adults; 2 children; 1 infant) stayed at Airport Palms Motel for one night. We got a 2-bedroom apartment with separate living/kitchen area. We have chosen this hotel mainly due to its location very close to the airport (btw, we didn't hear any airplanes even though its just around the corner) as well to the campervan rental company which...
