We drove to this motel directly from the airport and found it to be conveniently located, easily accessible and sparkling clean and orderly. We stayed on business for an entire week and it was a great home away from home.

We booked into the Airport Palms Motel based on other reviews and location. They offer a free shuttle and free wifi which won our hearts so we booked. We were in a party of 4 Adults ( my husband and I and two adult sons) and were thrilled with our room. It was modern, totally new and very clean and... More

I chose the hotel based on TripAdvisor reviews -- I had an early morning flight and wanted to be close to the airport. The room was fine, however it has a sliding glass door rather than a traditional door (gives the room an odd feel). Regardless, the room had what one needs in an airport hotel, though the feng shui... More

Tis motel is ideal for a stay in Christchurch. It is close to the airport and it is on several bus routes which enables a pleasant journey into the city or other locations around Christchurch.

This motel is modern, clean and tidy. Everything was nearly brand new. The location is very convenient with several restaurant nearby. Most importantly, the managers are so friendly and helpful, which was very important for our memorable stay.

Was taken by the size of the room and the luxurious feel. Warm and comfy. Great location and airport transfers make this a prime spot to stay. I was here two nights arriving at 8pm - the manager was helpful and arranged taxi for my early morning departure on the Sunday morning. Highly recommended.

The motel was modern and well serviced. The front units are subject to road noise. There are no drawers in the unit for storage for a longer stay. Comfortable. Kitchen has microwave only. Good guest laundry.

My partner and I stayed here after getting a late night flight in at around midnight (caught a taxi, only $16-they have free transfers from 8-6 I think which we made use of in the morning). Very clean and friendly managers looking after the place while the main owners were away. Would recommend.
