We had booked for one night but wanted to extend our stay so that we could do the train journey to Greymouth and back. Pat and Bill were happy to accommodate us. In fact they were happy to do anything to make our stay comfortable and convenient. The room was quiet, clean, a good size and well stocked. Our departures... More

We had a one bedroom unit (room 12) for one night prior to our flight the next day and it was excellent. The room was spacious and furnished with high grade TV, fridge, furniture etc.It would have been absolutely perfect except that the mattress was way too soft for our liking. Very quiet, in a good location close to the... More

Given its proximity to the airport, we stayed at Airport Palms on arrival in Christchurch and on Riccarton Road on our departure (to be closer to the train station). As would be expected, Airport Palms was considerably quieter. The studio we were allocated met all expectations, being of a decent size, clean, comfortable and well equipped. As such, we had...

Got here late, but keys out of after hours box, room was modern and clean. Lady in the morning was friendly and nice. Room had a nice big TV, had ice in the fridge and the shower had good water pressure, hard to complain about anything, as the motel is off the main road there is little street noise

We had a 2 bed unit which was clean and tidy, plenty of room to sit and relax. Great well stocked Kitchener. The shower is not to be missed, loaded of towels. A friendly quick check in. Even a choice of milk in thhe fridge and plenty of tea and coffee to choose from. A great place to stop before... More

Hotel rooms were clean, tidy, well equipped and modern. Management were extremely helpful and allowed us to stay longer in our room whilst we dealt with issues regarding our Britz campervan. The free shuttle service to and from the airport was also a nice touch. We would recommend this hotel to anyone who needs to stay close to the airport.

In this location, it's going to be a hotel for 'one-night stands'! We had one night here before an early flight and it was quite delightful - a spacious room with a well equipped kitchenette. We appreciated the free wifi and the fixed-price taxi which was arranged for us (for a 4:30am start). I am very happy to recommend this... More

This hotel was very comfortable and close to the airport. It did cost us quite a bit ($22) to get a taxi from the airport though. We stayed on both our arrival and departure and because our flights arrived late and left early we could not utilise the free shuttle service that the hotel offers. If I was arriving late... More
