If you're visiting Christchurch, I wouldn't hesitate staying anywhere else. Unfortunately due to the earthquakes, most of the city has been demolished, there's not much to see really. you still have the parks etc, but it's not worth staying centrally. Staying at Airport Gateway was the best thing we could have done. Easy late check-in, car parking, comfy bed/room, great... More

We found our room clean, warm, comfortable, and outstanding service. They picked us up late at night, had our key, took us to the room, and helped us get settled. The next morning, they drove us to an ATM to get NZ money, and helped us with directions and ideas of things to see and do. There was a laundry... More

We stayed two nights one at the beginning of our trip and the last night - accommodation wonderful we were in new units but the traffic noise a bit of an issue - dinner average had warm beer on last night which to an Aussie was not good. Overall would stay again but probably find another restaurant.

Stayed in a 2 bedroom apartment for one night during October 2014. We selected this property as it was close to the airport and offered a free shuttle service. Although the accommodation was not huge, it was comfortable, clean and tidy. The kitchenette was small but had everything we needed for a one night stay. Bedrooms were in keeping with... More

I enjoyed my stay here and will certainly stay again when in Christchurch. I had a one-bedroom studio room which is advertised as "Superior" and it certainly was. It was nicely decorated in tasteful neutral colours, immaculately clean, and very well appointed. The bed was very comfortable and the location is quiet so I had a good sleep. I liked... More

We'd flown no-stop London to NZ and were pretty knackered by the time we arrived! Our room was spacious , clean and shower / bathroom / kitchen were immaculate. Beds were comfortable. We had a shuttle bus to catch coach to home (Oamaru) which was on time and so we felt 'no pressures' Will stay again for sure even if... More

We stay here on the way to and back from brisbane. It was a little bit of luxury and I'd stay again ina minute. Despite being on a busy road it was very quiet. Bed really comfortable and very clean. Good size tv too. Great if you're using the airport, close and they provide 24/7 pick up and drop off.... More

Stayed at this hotel when we arrived in Christchurch and on our departure. Lovely spacious, clean room. The staff were friendly and helpful. We ate in the restaurant on both occasions and the food was good.
