Good place to stay especially with a late night arrival. Shown to your room instead of just being given a key and lights, heating etc already on for you. Late night hot food room service after the restaurant has closed was very welcome.

I stayed at the Airport Gateway Motor Lodge twice, once on my way into New Zealand with a friend (27th December 2015) and again the night before I left New Zealand by myself (5th January 2016). I chose this airport purely because of convenience, I arrived after midnight and wanted to stay somewhere close, and my departure flight was before... More

A brief summary would be fair price, good service and reasonably good room. Throw in a free shuttle and you have the making of a good Motel. We stayed in a family room - furnishings were good, not great - a bit dated. Small kitchenette. Large flat screen television. Air-conditioner in lounge (never did find the remote though!). Reasonably comfortable... More

We (2 a, 2c) stayed in a 2 bedroom unit in mid Jan for one night. Jetstar flight from Sydney arrived late (around 1.30 am) but free shuttle arrived within 5 minutes of our phone call and unit was warm and lit, waiting for our arrival. Also, dropped us for free again the next morning. Very clean, spacious, free wif... More

This is less than 5 mins to airport so very convenient, we returned our car rental at the airport the night before our departure and they kindly picked us up from the airport, then they also took us back the next day at 4.30am for our very early flight - so that was really great. Unfortunately wet an older style... More

We had a fantastic stay, although too short, the room is spacious, comfortable, quiet, meticulously clean and had everything we could possibly need. The service provided from on-line booking, airport transfers through to checkout was absolutely first class and exceptional value for money. Definitely have no hesitation in highly recommending Airport Gateway Motor Lodge to those travelling to/through Christchurch. John... More
