This served as our base for the beginning and end of our NZ trip. Liked the kitchenette. Rooms very clean. Close to airport but quiet. Restaurants and basic shopping within walking distance. Bus stop very close to sightseeing Christchurch. Hosts were great in providing information.

Our room was clean and adequate. It has heating but no AC that we could find, and our room had a western exposure so it was a bit warm. The staff were very friendly and helpful and it was no problem to check out at the same time we checked in so we could leave at 4:30 am for an... More

My family and I stayed in the 3 bedroom apartment. There was plenty of space and all of the rooms where comfortable, quiet and clean. They were also very modern. The motel is very quiet and we had a wonderful sleep. Would recommend.

I stayed at airport palms after attending a funeral in kurow. We were on a very tight schedule and after flying in on the Friday morning, driving to kurow and back, we were extremely tired by the time we made it to the motel. Check in was easy. Although there was a little bit of confusion as we had booked... More

We, (four of us), stayed at the Airport Palms on our last night of our three week trip around NZ. We couldn't have chosen a better place. It was clean, comfortable, well situated and the proprietors were superb in giving advice on restaurants and accommodating our other needs. Couldn't recommend it higher.

Two couples shared a 2 bedroom apartment that was spotlessly clean with everything we needed. The bedrooms were spacious and elegantly furnished. Double glazed windows reduced the road noise at night time. The lounge had a large wall mounted TV and another one in the main bedroom. The motel grounds were very attractive and the whole complex was meticulously maintained.... More

We were very happy with the room we booked in Christchurch for a one night stay before our flight back home - quiet, comfortable and had everything we needed for a light dinner and breakfast (fridge, crockery, cutlery, washing up facilities etc.) They even provided some milk for tea and coffee.

Spotlessly clean and all mod cons. Very comfortable bed. Even though our room, number 9 faced the road, it was quiet. Wake up call and taxi both on time for a very early flight. Restaurant and takeaways very handy, and owners very helpful. Would stay here again!

We arrived at midnight after a long journey with two small children to find that Pat and Bill had thoughtfully given us the room across from the office. The room was spacious and clean (aside from one pillowcase that was immediately remedied in the morning and profusely apologized for). If you arrive late don't pay for the Wi-Fi as you... More
