I spent 5 nights here and I don't have any complaints at all. It was comfortable and clean and staff were great. Had a good nights sleep as it was really quiet and had no road noise. No complaints at all, looking forward to my next stay in August!

Airport Palms had all we wanted for a one night stopover in Christchurch. Spotlessly clean, we used the free shuttle both ways to the airport and were allowed into our room early afternoon. There's a good bus service into the city with a stop near by. It took 20 minutes to walk to the supermarket at Avonhead, this is also... More

I stayed here twice for 4 nights due to work. Some really good things: it is spotlessly clean with modern rooms; located minutes from the airport yet never heard a single plane while I stayed here; friendly staff and they'll drop you at the airport for free if you don't have a car! Negative things: there is absolutely nothing to... More

My family of 4 stayed overnight at the end of our 2 week NZ holiday. We had already spent a few nights in Christchurch city center at the start of our holiday so we just needed somewhere close to the airport as we were passing through for one night on our way back home. Friendly, helpful staff, lovely clean room,... More

My partner and I stayed here twice, at the beginning and the end of a 2 week camper road trip. The first night we stayed in a king studio with a spa and it was excellent. Massive spa and great heating in the room (it was winter). We also stayed in a king studio with just the shower at the... More

The Manager was smiling and happy when we turned up late. The first thing I noticed was the nice smell of the unit when we walked in. Very modern contemporary décor. We had a 2 bedroom unit for ourselves and our 2 boys. The beds were great and the shower had really good pressure. Very clean and a pleasure to... More

We were flying out very early the next morning so it was nice to be so close to the airport. We had a small unit, one twin room, one double. Small lounge area for a family but very modern, nice and clean and had good commodities. Very nice, big bathroom. Check in staff were friendly and efficient. Good price and... More

Nice clean room, good value My only problem was I was asleep in bed 9pm and I was woken to my door opening and the manager (male) was standing in my room, delivering breakfast for the next day, as it was only bread, yoghurt & fruit it should have been placed in fridge when I got there, or earlier in...

Booked in later in the evening to this Motel. Was made welcome by the owner. Got to view the room before hand and I found that great. A nice clean Motel. Laundry facilities were free to use which was great to do the kids washing! Handy to most places. Comfortable and clean. Stayed an extra night as it was a... More

We needed a place to stay close to the airport, and the Airport Palms Motel was perfect for that. We also needed a late check-in, and again the Motel managers came to the rescue as well. The rooms were tidy, our bed was superbly comfortable, and so a perfect stay.
