4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We stayed here just one night after a flight that arrived very late. It was just an $11NZD taxi ride from the airport. We had the 2 bedroom apartment. Though it is at the front of the motel, it was very quiet as the bedrooms don't back on to the road and the windows are double glazed. It was all... More

I was here on a one night stay following my family's arrival in NZ for our 9 day adventure. The room was well-furnished and we quickly felt that we were at home from the fact that there was a stove, microwave and even utensils with which we could whip up our own meals. A few minutes away there is a... More

Helpful and friendly service provided by the owners. The rooms were clean, functional and comfortable. The shuttle service is very good, prompt and obliging. Although my room was at the roadside I did not hear the traffic. I would stay here again!

Always worry about using a motel near an airport as they have disappointed in the past, but not this one. A good choice with decent rooms and very friendly helpful staff. Rooms had everything that was needed for a good comfy nights stay. The grounds and the rooms were spotless and well looked after. A good selection of beverages. The... More

We had a wonderful stay at the Airport Palms Motel a few days ago. This was the last stay of our two week adventure on the South Island of New Zealand. We needed a place to relax, regroup, and pack for our return flight early in the morning. The Airport Palms Motel was just what we needed. Their shuttle service... More

We chose this property basically based on it's convenient proximity to the airport, but it was much more. Very easy access to key and room was really warm when we arrived. The room was modern, well appointed and bed comfortable. All good!

We had multiple delays out of Sydney airport and arrived in the middle of the night in Christchurch. The Airport Palms was great with arranging late key pick up. The motel is super close to the airport. The room was very spacious and the kitchenette was stocked well. We again rushed off the next day for our long drive to... More

We ended a very busy 2-week tour of New Zealand in Christchurch and just wanted a convenient place near the airport. Luckily, we chose this lovely motel right across the street from the airport entrance road! Every aspect of our online booking, arrival, stay, and departure were excellent. The lady at the front desk gave us great service for all... More
