Others are right in their reviews. Great host picked us uo in a few minutes of landing. Room was a studio reasonable in regard to space. Big tv. Clean and well appointed. We were road front a little noise of cars not ideal.. so ask for a room away from the road.

Our second stay here as handy to Christchurch airport for early flights. Upstairs studio unit with kingsize bed was clean and well equipped with modern fittings etc. Good to have a heated towel rail. Not a lot of room and only one comfie chair to use if watching tv.The restaurant in the complex opposite was great for a good meal... More

Stayed here for one night. Convenient airport shuttle, room was well equipped with kettle, sink, small dining table, large bathroom and comfortable beds. Walking distance to delicious asian food. Recommend this place if you need to be near the airport.

Ours was just a short stop-over before catching a plane, but very helpful and friendly staff and a good standard of accommodation, with all the usual extras you would expect. Not much in immediate area, but nice park to walk around locally.

Our stay was for one night, four adults. We stayed in a two bedroom unit. The unit was clean and comfortable. The lady at reception directed us to the local shopping mall where we ate dinner at the Monteiffs Bar. Lovely meal. We also took her recommendation for breakfast at the cafe across the road. Good coffee, nice food. Convenient... More

The staff was great ( helpful ) fast , I felt that they cared if I was enjoying my trip. I was called by name, house cleaner were fast and even offered to do some laundry for me if i needed help. They showed me parks nearby and shopping malls, they were there anytime i needed them.

Bill, the owner, was extremely helpful, kind, patient and professional in helping us to sort out a complicated hire car return. The motel is ideally located near CHC airport and there are a few restaurants at walking distance from the Motel. We shall be back!

Staff were very friendly. Apartment was very clean and modern. Hotel is very close to airport suitable for those who like to do a short stay and continue on to other destinations. City style apartment; compact yet meaningful and well presented.

A small group of us stayed for three nights to attend a local sports event in Chch. We were conveniently picked up at the airport by our hosts and dropped off. Rooms superb, one with big spa one without. Convenient by the airport yet far enough away to not hear too much airplane noise. Staff were wonderful with requests, recommend.

Was the best motel I have stayed in NZ.Facilities wise I would rate it higher than the Queenstown Hilton( where we could not even change the room temperature). There was ample supplies of tea and toiletries.
